Adventure 8: Rockaoke

#JOESLONDONBUCKETLIST: 30 Adventures Before 30

I’m Joe – and I’ve challenged myself to complete 30 of the 50 activities in my book The London Bucket List before my 30th birthday. The challenge was set exactly 30 weeks before my birthday on 1 October. You can read about all of the activities I’ve completed so far here. You can download an electronic version of The London Bucket List at the bottom of this post – or buy the paperback here.


Have you ever dreamed of fronting a badass rock band, but never got round to it? Rockaoke gives you the chance to do just that.

Pretend you’re Axl Rose with AC/DC or Adam Lambert with Queen. Or if you prefer, take on the likes of Rihanna, Adele, Katy Perry etc.

The resident rock bands have an impressive repertoire of songs and you can sing along with them at Roadhouse, Covent Garden every Monday and Wednesday.

Best of all, you could win a £5,000 prize!

How Was it?

I’m undecided whether karaoke is fun. Sure, it’s fun to sing and watch your mates make a fool of themselves, but it can be torturous watching complete strangers murder your favourite songs.

Rockaoke is completely different though. The iPhonics were so brilliant that every song was a joy to watch.

Singing Blink-182 alongside them made me feel like a true rockstar, if only for three minutes. Sadly, the email confirming I’m through to the £5,000 grand final never arrived…

Is it a good date idea?

Roadhouse is a fun venue serving delicious food and a great range of cocktails. A great place to take your date whatever day of the week it is…

Even if you don’t fancy yourselves as rock and roll heroes, you’ll enjoy watching others take on the Rockaoke challenge.

Having said that, there’s still time to compete for that £5,000 prize.
