Thousands of years ago, Chickeater Joe the Banana-Head, left planet earth to explore the greatness of the universe. On the 21st of December 2012 he finally came back, only to discover the damage human race did to themselves and their planet. Pissed off, Joe searched the globe for musicians, to spread his word of enlightment through the mass manipulating medium of pop music. But then he discovered an awful truth. All the famous musicians also worship the new god of humanity, the socalled „Money“.
Somewhere in the backwoods of Austria, after a long journey around the devastated planet, he finally crossed the path of three young musicians who had just formed a Band called „Fairtrade Floyd“. Chickeater Joe liked their music, but most important he liked their attitude. So he gave them an ancient instrument, which nowadays is known as a „Diddley Bow“ and sent them out to save mankind from the mess they are in.
In the year 2030, Pat Benatar, AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Avril Lavigne, build a supergroup and travel back into the year 2013 in a time machine, to bring some fresh wind into the music scene. That's how one could describe the sound of Rocquette. Energy-loaded classic rock and pop rock, influenced by blues, and a tiny breeze of metal riffs. With touching melodies, motivating sing-along lyrics and an eye-catching show, Rocquette "wowed" the crowds on their international tours even through Germany, the UK and the USA. "We think it's sad that rock music tends to be negative and bitter these days" says Barbie Hardrock, charming singer of the band, "We will change that!"
