ROCKTOBER (Late) Update on how much you rocked!


Last October 300 of you defied the storm and descended on ROCKTOBER for a good time. 

The superb bands (Hitting Southpaw, G’n’F’n’R’s and Squealer) had us all screaming to the rafters… and the God’s of Rock award winners from the crowd (Karen, Jamie & The Claw) were great & talented sorts. You should check out the stack of photos over on
It’s all about having a feel-good, dress up, livin’ the dream, tribute rock party in Wellington … and you made it the biggest and best yet! I salute you. \m/

All ticket profits went to the Cancer Society of New Zealand and as the bands, DJs, crew, sound guy, lighting guy & venue did it all for next-to-nothing, Rocktober raised a huge $2,850 thanks to you! Managing that figure without having any financial sponsorship this time is a tribute to all of you who came along, top marks. Party on.

Once again … We Salute You!

GODS of ROCK is all about having a feel-good, no fuss, classic rock/metal night out in Wellington … but it’s also non-profit, so you should know that you helped raise a huge $2,600! That’s a cool $1300 each for the Cancer Society of New Zealand and the Red Cross Earthquake Appeal. You done good! Party on. \m/

GODS of ROCK Quick Update

I’ll say it all properly when everything has come together later, but a simply HUGE thankyou to everyone who came along and everyone involved in GODS of ROCK. It totally Rocked & You totally Rocked! Big time. \m/

Funds Raised: We’re counting up the monies now and will announce the total later today.

Photos: Official GODS of ROCK photos of the event & photobooth highlights (from WeDo) will be up online over the next couple of days – so you can relive the night in pictures, spot your mates or just get a bit of an idea of that you missed! We’ll let you know as soon as they’re up.

Tshirts: Event Tshirts will be available on TradeMe this coming week if you fancy a momento (all profits still go to Charity).

Send us your Pics & Videos
We’re real keen to see any pics or vids you took on Friday night too, so email or leave comments with links under this post if you fancy sharing! We’ll post up our favourites and credit you.

More soon!

A Whole Lotta Roses

GODS of ROCK is going to explode with the sounds of Axle & Slash as locals G’N’F’N’R are going to be joining us to unleash their Guns N’ Roses Tribute act. Along with the Angry DJs, AC/DC Tribute, Metallica Tribute and Awards, this is totally going to rule! Make sure you dress up to rock out.

The legendary Sabbra Cadabra have supported GODS of ROCK since the start, so we’re totally gutted they’ve had to pull out due to bad health (broken bones – although we should make up a sex, drugs & rockn’roll story, TV out the 10th floor window, choking on someone else’s vomit. Something like that). Give them a shoutout on their Facebook page. Pending recovery, we’ll definitely be talking to them in the lead up to the next DressUp & RockOut event (Rocktober 2011).
