RockEnrol’s mission is to electrify the political power of young people in Aotearoa New Zealand. We throw parties for young people to celebrate democracy and the wonderful opportunity that voting brings us to have a say on their future of our country.

- Dead Favours are a band playing their own form of Rock and Roll, full of warm riffs goodness and sexy grooves. Now with more fuzz than ever! They come from a rich history of NZ music with members originating from bands including Steriogram, Fire at Will, Bloodnut, Eqwanox, and The Wreckage!

Their sound has been likened to that of QoTSA, Them Crooked Vultures, Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys and so on.

- Kara Gordon & The Wreckage is blues, rock and shred with a punch to the head. The Kiwi guitar hero has, until now, been a live phenomenon, largely in New Zealand but occasionally in Australia, with some of the world’s finest dribbling over themselves at his exceptional ability.

- Joe Satriani has described him as ‘‘one of the most prolific guitarists I’ve ever seen’’, Living Colour founder Vernon Reid dubbed him ‘‘Jimi Hendrix reincarnated’’, while Jason Becker, one of the greatest shredders of all time, emailed him after he saw a video on YouTube to say he really thought Gordon’s playing was great. That’s high praise, indeed.

- Royal Jackets were sewn together in 2012 by long term session drummer Josh Sorenson. Josh tutors in music and has played and recorded with an array of New Zealand artists including Sola Rosa, Nathan Haines, King Kapisi, Hammond Gamble and Hello Sailor. Josh’s jazz/funk background brings the groove to Royal Jackets sound.

Royal Jackets have opened for classic pacific rockers Hello Sailor, 80’s pop hit makers the Narcs and modern rockers I Am Giant.
