Rockyoke comes to Manchester

Like karaoke but with the volume turned up to 11...try it at a Five Stars party in September

Published on August 26th 2009.

Rockyoke comes to Manchester

If you're a karaoke king or queen, we've got news of an event that will get you excited. Rockyoke is coming to Manchester and it will surpass all your favourite karaoke memories combined. Whereas in karaoke, it's just you, the microphone, a dodgy backing track, and an audience of amused friends, Rockyoke is a different experience all together.

In other words, you're not just singing along, you're rocking-out with a full band playing alongside you. You just choose the song from a list of 200, then get up there and perform.

It's just you, the microphone, an audience a hundred or so-strong, and a live band including drummer, bassist, and rhythm guitarist. In other words, you're not just singing along, you're rocking-out with a full band playing alongside you. You just choose the song from a list of 200 (featuring everything from Girls Aloud to Bryan Adams) then get up there and perform.

The Rockyoke party is being held at the Ramada Jarvis Piccadilly Hotel in aid of the Five Stars Appeal which aims to raise £1m to buy a much-needed MRI scanner for the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. As well as giving attendees chance to become their rock star alter ego, Five Stars are putting on a three course meal, making it into a proper night out.

The menu includes mains of chicken breast with stem ginger and tarragon sauce, and slow-braised brisket of beef with horseradish infused jus, plus a selection of starters and desserts. The host for the evening will be Scott Wright who played Sam Kingston in Coronation Street – he's a patron of this very worthwhile charity. The money raised will help children suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses get the best possible care. It'll make their time under the scanner less frightening, and will allow doctors to make earlier diagnoses which will save lives.

So if you feel that you missed your true vocation when you took that job in accounts, make sure you're there to become the rock god or goddess you were always meant to be. Tickets cost £35 each, including the three-course meal, and the party takes place on Friday 25 September at the Ramada Jarvis Piccadilly Hotel in Manchester city centre.
