The Rockin’ Rockets, Canberra, ACT
This rock band formed last year during lunch time guitar jam sessions at their school. The 9-piece band have performed at school assemblies, Christmas concerts and carols at their local hospital. They even made their school song into a rap! The band worked hard to polish their performance of I am Australian and are thrilled to be a part of the AMEB Online Orchestra.
