As we kick-off 2018 we reflect on our last gig of 2017 which was in the fabulous city of Paris!! 

Survey in from our lovely customer, Schneider Electric, and this is what they said about their experience with Rock and Roll Team Building:

"An evening of Rock and Roll Team Building leaves behind smiling fraces all around and happy memories that our guests will cherish for a long time.  We highly recommend Ciaran and Rock and Roll Team Building to anyone that is looking for a special and unforgettable evening."

We're happy with that and look forward to many great reviews in 2018.  Customer feedback always so important!

High praise from a recent gig!


We love great feedback so we were delighted to receive this accolade from Adair Cameron, General Manager of Williment Events in New Zealand.

"Ciaran is an absolute pro – he captivates the audience immediately. Our team were a little nervous initially but he had us all up singing and dancing within minutes, all barriers were broken and nobody wanted it to end. He’s got the gift of the gab, a lovely voice and the presence of a rock star. Our team will never forget the time we spent with Ciaran and the bonding effect is immeasurable. I can’t think of a more successful team building event that we’ve had in the 10 years I’ve been with Williment. I would highly recommend Rock n Roll team building to anyone looking to create lasting memories for your team or clients. Finding such a unique concept in the world of events is absolute gold!"

Our General Manager had a chat with MiceNet Magazine!


Great to have a little chat with Brad Foster in the latest issue of MiceNet Magazine about our adventures abroad as we grow our business from Australia!  This great interview is with our good friend Nigel Collin who we ran into at ILEA Live 2017 in Calgary, Canada.

ILEA Live 2017

We were very proud to be a Diamond sponsor at last month's 'ILEA Live' event in Calgary, Canada.  An absolutely fabulous conference filled with amazing content and great networking opportunities for #eventprofs.  Read a wrap of the event, including a little bit about us, on pages 55 - 57 in the latest issue of the Canadian Special Events Magazine.

Rock with the culture of Indigenous Australia!


EXCITING NEWS!  We are bringing you the opportunity to Rock with the culture of Indigenous Australia.

We are pleased to announce a partnership with the incredibly talented Indigenous Australian duo ‘Apakatjah’ to create a special interactive musical workshop for conference and incentive groups seeking an insight into the unique culture and music of Indigenous Australia. 

This new workshop, featuring stirring harmonies and traditional instruments, is available for meetings, incentives and special events being held in the Northern Territory, or anywhere in Australia.   

The workshop is led by Grammy nominated songwriter and the most recent singer of INXS, Ciaran Gribbin, who will be accompanied by Apakatjah (pronounced Uppa-Cut-Ja) duo Dion Forrester and Jonathan Lindsay-Tjapaltjarri Hermawan. Dion and Jonathan blend their cultural influences from Aboriginal Australia into the workshop and will perform their hit single Waru.

Amongst elements such as choir and rockstar performances this new workshop will feature an array of authentic Australian rock n’ roll music from bands such as INXS, Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, Yothu Yindi and the Warrumpi Band.   In addition to the construction of an original song, using the theme of the event as the title, an interactive percussion session utilising the Aboriginal instrument ‘clap sticks’ will have all audience members working together to provide rhythmic accompaniment for legendary songs from Yothu Yindi and the Warrumpi Band.

We are very impressed with Apakatjah's talent and see this new workshop as an opportunity for our clients to incorporate the stirring sounds of Indigenous Australian music into a fun interactive music experience which can be transported anywhere around Australia.   

“I’m particularly excited about bringing the authentic sounds of Indigenous Australian rock music to a wider audience and to supporting fellow original artists such as Apakatjah.  To have Dion and Jonathan join me on stage is a real honour.”  Ciaran Gribbin
