ROCKHAPPENZ is a comprehensive database of Christchurch (and Canterbury connected) Vocalists, Musicians, Groups, Venues, Events and Entities of the late 50s, 60s and 70s – which now comfortably extends to the present
The information presented on this ROCKHAPPENZ site is gleaned where practicable from spontaneous contributions by interested parties, and pertinent information/resources from an extremely wide range of sources and sites in the public domain, with the objective of providing meaningful profiles of the Vocalists, Musicians, Groups, Venues, Events and Entities of the era of interest under the spotlight, in an easily accessible format and under a common umbrella. ROCKHAPPENZ is not the only resource which provides consolidated data, and it is important to acknowledge sources from which information, photgraphs and clippings have occasionally been uplifted, and subsequently re-presented on this site. The acknowledgements are in none other than alphabetical order, and no source has been used preferentially. Salient information has been acquired only as necessary to enhance ROCKHAPPENZ profiles, and sources are acknowledged directly wherever possible. The instigators and operators of the various sources encountered, reviewed and utilised from time to time by ROCKHAPPENZ are greatly respected by this site, and without them ROCKHAPPENZ would significantly less informed.
