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.
Here are some nice endorsements from "muscial alumni" — strictly in the order in which they were received ......
Johnny, your work with the ROCKHAPPENZ site is fantastic. I can appreciate the enormous amount of effort and commitment you
have put in and I am in awe of the achievement. Thanks heaps for keeping the memories alive. Best regards, Neville Claughton
As someone that writes and archives New Zealand music, I find that the ROCKHAPPENZ
website is an invaluable and accurate resource and a credit to all involved. Grant Gillanders
Hi John, Love your website ROCKHAPPENZ. Christchurch certainly has produced and will still keep producing World class talent
in the music industry. Love that you are also presenting past and present entertainers and musicians. Kind regards, Dinah Lee
What a great site, acknowledging all the great musos that put the Rock in Canterbury from the word go. So many still alive and rockin'.
I can see this site developing into something really big. Congratulations Johnny, you have created something special. Roy Phillips
Hi Johnny, very impressive work my friend and I understand the ten years of work and research you did to create this site, as I did
a book on the Christchurch music scene from 1968 to the 1980s – and that took 2 years! It's more important now to record all this
information as it's being lost very fast, and many of my Christchurch musio friends have passed away in recent times. Like you, I wanted
to preserve the music history of our city over the 60s, 70s and 80s. Carry on with your special work Johnny. Kind regards, Kevin Hill
Love this site – wonderful, factually correct information. I take my hat off to you for preserving
all this important history – keep up the splendid work. Best regards, Rob Carpenter
I wish to personally endorse the ROCKHAPPENZ website, plus offer a big "congratulations" to John Campbell for the hours of
work he has gone to putting this wonderful site together for us. It's been an honour to have been a part of this era of the local music
scene, and JC has accurately researched and presented it. Keep NZ Music history alive forever! Sincerely, Wayne D Allen
A big thanks to you JC for a brilliant idea. Your hard work and dedication to this concept is much appreciated, and hopefully enjoyed by entertainers
and interested (curious) visitors to this site. Thanks mate .... (for me it's been a hell of a ride over the past 50 years). Sincerely, Peter Nelson
