At the age of ten, Rockin' Marc Rondeau discovered ROCK AND ROLL - his mother's copy of Elvis doing "A Big Hunk of Love" and literally played it until the record was worn out. From that day, he has surrounded himself with 1950s music and a 1950s lifestyle that might be seen as odd or at the least eccentric. The thing is, for him this is normal, it's everyone else who is weird. With about 30 years of collecting and listening to 1950s music he knows his stuff, so when an opportunity came up to start a club in 1991 he jumped at it. Fast forward to today, he has had a radio show on regional radio, put a fanzine out to over a thousand subscribers, played most of the rockin' music festivals in Australia and has DJed most clubs around Sydney. Being a big fan of Vinyl, DJing with 45s and LPs are the usual format he uses, but he has been known to play a CD or two if there is no alternative. So if you like Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, jump rhythm and blues, surf, doo wop, Western swing or any other 1950s music then you will probably get a kick out of listening to him on the wheels of steel at a venue near you.
Marc worked closely with the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney to help them curate the Rockabilly component of their "Remembering the 80s" exhibition. As well as lending clothes, records and memorabilia for the exhibit and donating an outfit for their permanent collection, he was also interviewed for their website.

The Rockhouse also Djs at both private functions and corporate events. We have a wide range of music ranging from lounge and cocktail music to wild rockabilly, jump rhythm and blues, swing and 60s surf and garage music. We can keep your guests shaking it on the dancefloor all night long, or provide a sophisticated ambience of cocktail music for a more low key event. We have been DJing for over 25 years and can read the dancefloor and adapt the music to suit the evening.
Keep your drink cool while you're on the dancefloor!
