Rocquette Short Info

2015 marks the 10th anniversary of ROCQUETTE, Austrias’ awesomeST female-fronted Rock’n'Roll band. Those busy ants are devil to kill and, wherever they go, they take the stage: from Las Vegas “Cheyenne Saloon” to Londons’ “Cargo”, Italys’ “Hangar 22” to Germanys’ “Das Rind”, Viennas’ Nature Historic Museum and the Rugby Stadion “Hohe Warte”, spinning the globe down under to Sydneys' weird and wonderful “Art Party #15” as well as Brisbanes’ EF pool party and Christmas video (oh yes, bikini tops plus Christmas hats work great together!) until only recently an acoustic street version of the famous all-time favourite “Mhmmmargarita" was heard cannonading along Croatias’ beautiful Punat beach promenade accompanied by the smell of wild
peppermint and cheering, enthusiastic ramblers.
En passant, one more achievement was added to Rocquette’s growing list, when International “Song of the Year” Songwriting Contest announced “By the time you get married” as Semi-Finalist. The song is included in the bands’ latest release, a multi-genre EP entitled “Honk, Punch, Smile”, which has been presented on Austrias’ 88.6 radio station and is, of course, once again home- made: even the cover art was drawn by singer Barbie Hardrock herself, who loves pouring out creativity and, in case of not so much to say atm, campaign for those in need.
You’ve got to hand it to them: Whenever it seems to get a bit quiet around Rocquette, they blast back out into business, fully recharged and, thanks to their fans - wearing a big “Smile”. Long live Bon Scott, and therefor last but not least, a quote from the lyrics of “Keep On Rocking”, forever inked on Barbie’s arm: ”... Aim Rolling Stones and Aerosmith... NEVER TOO OLD TO ROCK & ROLL”! News & Tour dates keep coming on ROCQUETTE.COM
