IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

Smokin’ Jo toma las riendas de los viernes en Ibiza Rocks House, mientras que the Sunday Roast con DJ Antz continúa hasta el 13 de octubre, fecha del cierre oficial 

Ibiza, lunes 16 de Septiembre (FIX Ibiza).- Freddie Rocks Ibiza, la cita anual de Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel que recuerda el aniversario del nacimiento del artista, recaudó el pasado 1 de septiembre 4.500 euros que irán destinados a The Mercury Phoenix Trust, la asociación que formaron en 1991, tras la muerte de Mercury, el manager y el resto de componentes de la banda que lideraba, Queen, y que trabaja por la lucha contra el sida en todo el mundo.

Por otra parte, y hasta el cierre oficial del legendario hotel, quedan por delante algunas citas importantes. Septiembre y octubre son buenos meses para disfrutar de la isla y desde Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel bien lo saben. La exitosa residencia del actor Idris Elba de los viernes llegó a su fin pero las noches no se han quedado vacías. Desde ahora y con Smokin’ Jo como alma de la fiesta, el viernes 20 de septiembre la celebración sigue, con grandes cabezas de cartel entre los que se encuentran Skin (Skunk Anansie), David Morales, Bones, Andy Carrol o Colin Peters, desde medianoche, en Ibiza Rocks House.

Continúa además una de las citas clásicas del Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel. Los domingos, el mejor asado tradicional británico se sirve junto a DJ Antz Bryans y sus amigos. Por Play it by Ear ya han pasado figuras respetadas como Arthur Baker, Patsy Palmer, Disco Don Nigel Atkin, Hugo Heathcote, Jon Sa Trinxa, Colin Peters, Dave Lubin o Justin Field, entre muchos otros. Hasta el día de su cierre, el domingo 13 de octubre, cierre oficial de Ibiza Rocks Hpuse at Pikes Hotel, aún quedan cuatro citas imprescindibles. Volviendo al ‘closing’, matizar que será un día muy Rocky Horror Picture Show, con la proyección de este fabuloso musical y otras sorpresas.

Y cuando Ibiza se queda tranquila y los alrededores de Ibiza Rocks House oscurecen temprano, llega Halloween. El Hotel despierta de la siesta y celebra la segunda edición de Vamp Rocks la noche del 31 de octubre. La única condición: si no te disfrazas, no entras. Djs confirmados hasta ahora, incluyen a Stray Kitten y Bones. Próximamente, más info.

SEPTEMBER ROCKS THE HOUSE

IR House at Pikes master logo 20cm def

Smokin’ Jo takes over Fridays with this week’s guest DJs including Mark Ronson + Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) + more TBC

Sunday Roast/Play It by Ear Closing Date announced

‘Vamp Rocks’ confirms its return for Halloween

 

(FIX/IBIZA/PR/13 Sept 2013)

Who would have thunk it?! Here we are in September and according to the recent weather, summer definitely seems to be coming to a close. But up atIbiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, and as the sign at the front entrance says, it ain’t over till the fat lady sings. And she ain’t singin’ just yet…

After a very successful run on Fridays, Idris Elba finally left our shores to shimmy his way up the red carpets of the international movie world, with the premier of his latest blockbuster, Pacific Rim. Accepting the challenge and the party gauntlet, Smokin’ Jo is the woman responsible for getting the weekend going through the month of September. Last week’s Guest DJs Skin (Skunk Anansie), David Morales, Bones, Andy Carroll and Colin Peters blew the imaginary roof off the House, and this weekan equally smashing line up including none other than Ibiza Rocks House’s old chum Mark Ronson plus Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) joining Smokin’ Jo with yet another superstar yet to be announced.

Kicking off at midnight, just as We Are Rockstars comes to a close over at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, Fridays have gone from strength to strength up at IRH over the summer and don’t look to have any notion of stopping just yet. Our kind of people, our kind of music, our kind of fun…

Moving on to the regular Sunday summer shenanigans and renowned party starter, DJ Antz Bryans, has wowed us all over the last weeks with a line up of guest DJs that have been nothing if not diverse- from much respected DJ Arthur Baker to  Eastenders’ star Patsy Palmer, Disco Don Nigel Atkin, Hugo Heathcote, Jon Sa Trinxa, Colin Peters, Dave Lubin and Justin Field amongst them. With five events to go, our main man is pulling out the sonic stops for this last month of events at the rock n roll hotel of choice. As for the simultaneous Sunday Roast– it’s the perfect choice for these September days; make sure you bring a big appetite. We recommend pre-booking your table (details below). As for the actual Closing Party onSunday October 13, we should probably mention that post-sunset, the evening will turn somewhat all Rocky Horror Picture Show with a screening of the legendary musical with the party continuing on into the wee small hours. Fishnets at the ready, time is fleeting and madness takes its toll…

Which brings us rather neatly to Halloween and, after last year’s successful scariness, we are very excited to announce the return of VAMP ROCKS on31 October. With tickets at 10€, price including a chalice of our finest mead plus a very scary surprise, this is guaranteed to be a night of shrieking good fun all round. No fancy dress, no entrance. DJs on the night include Stray Kitten, Bones and more TBC.

In other news, and following on from the recent Freddie Rocks Fundraiser on 1 Sept, it’s with an enormous amount of pride that we announce that the total raised so far for the Mercury Phoenix Trust at this year’s event is 4,500€ and counting! Massive thanks to all who got involved with the annual hirsute fundraiser- this is one doo that is becoming quite the institution at the house on the hill.

Flag Up the Dates!

FRIDAY 20 SEPT: Smokin’ Jo presents Mark Ronson, Sandy Rivera (Kings of Tomorrow) plus Andy Carroll, Doorly and Ste-V-Something

Ibiza, 29 abril 2013 (FIX Ibiza).- Ibiza Rocks House en el hotel Pikes, el hotel boutique en el que se alojan las bandas que tocan semanalmente en Ibiza Rocks, se ha consolidado rápidamente como el patio de recreo de la flor y nata de la escena rock and roll más actual. Como cada año por estas fechas, el legendario estabecimiento en el que hace ya casi 30 años George Michael grabara el famoso video ‘Club Tropicana’, abre sus puertas para iniciar una nueva y potente temporada de verano en Ibiza. Será el domingo 5 de mayo con una fiesta de inauguración en la que celebramos el ya clásico ‘Sunday Roast’ del verano, con DJ Antz a los platos y talleres de arte gratuitos para niños (2-5 años) por el día. La fiesta continua por la noche con Dj Antz, Andy Dean, Johnny La Plage y Stray Kitten, animando ‘Freddie’s’, el bar que fuera la suite Marrakech – famosa por acoger la grandiosa fiesta de cumpleaños de Freddie Mercury.

Pero aún hay más. Aquellos que decidan alojarse en Ibiza Rocks House el domingo 5 de mayo obtendrán una noche extra completamente gratis(sábado o lunes). La oferta incluye un cocktail de bienvenida y una botella de vino para todas las reservas del ‘Sunday Roast’. Precios desde 159€ para dos personas, compartiendo habitación.

El bar restaurante del hotel, de nombre ‘Room 39’, ofrece una selección de versiones modernas de platos de siempre con un toque rock and roll, así como una excelente carta de ‘rocktails’. El domingo Ibiza Rocks House se convierte en punto de encuentro del verano con el ‘Sunday Roast’. Abierto los 7 días de la semana.

Ibiza Rocks House no sería lo mismo sin ‘Freddie’s’, la suite convertida en bar desde que en 2011 Andy McKay y Dawn Hindle (Ibiza Rocks) asumieran la gestión del legendario establecimiento, propiedad del carismático y octogenario Tony Pike, huésped de excepción con carácter permanente en la habitación 25. Ahora, es el hogar de las exclusivas after parties de los directos de Ibiza Rocks y de WAR, entre muchos otros saraos. Estar alojado en Ibiza Rocks significa estar automáticamente en la lista de invitados.

El que fuera el hotel más representativo del hedonismo en la década de los 80, con huéspedes como Grace Jones, Freddie Mercury, Julio Iglesias o Elton John, entre muchos otros, mantiene hoy como Ibiza Rocks House la misma esencia en cada una de las 25 habitaciones que magistralmente distribuyó Tony Pike en los 70, en un entorno que se mantiene tan rural como entonces. Toda una experiencia.

FRESH AS A DAISY …

DSC_0013

(FIX IBIZA/ Fri 14th Dec 2012)

Last Sunday, 2 p.m. at the new hotspot restaurant, FAB BAR IBIZA, the young and talented singer/songwriter Daisy Veale performed.

The sun was shining, a beautiful winter’s day, perfect for a spot of traditional roast, accompanied by live acoustic music…

Service was quick and efficient, the scrumptious roast was indeed, shall we say ‘FAB’. After finishing the delightful roast everyone turned their attention to Veale’s talented voice. She did a mix set of mainly her own written songs, plus a few covers such as ‘Videogames, by Lana del Rey’ … the audience went silent, contented by her acoustic performance. FAB BAR IBIZA was a perfect place to hold this act, with a homely, chic feel and Daisy’s voice completed this atmosphere.

Daisy Veale is definitely fresh talent and will go far, with hopefully some more events lined up around the island… aside from that, she has the Quiksilver gigs to look forward too!

QUIKSILVER WOMEN’S AMBASSADOR DAISY VEALE CONFIRMED TO PERFORM AT FAB BAR, IBIZA.

SUNDAY 9TH December from 2pm/FAB Bar/Jesús

Image

(FIX IBIZA/ Fri 7th Dec 2012)

Until recently, the island of Ibiza, famed for its music, has been hiding Daisy Veale away from the world– but all that is changing for this local, lovely, young and very talented singer/songwriter. Veale,  has just been chosen as international surf brand Quiksilver’s new musical Ambassador for Spain

The Quiksilver competition enhances young talent by searching for Ambassadors to represent their surfer brand throughout the world, and this year had three categories– singing, styling and photography.

Daisy is now following in the footsteps of local boy and international star, Ben Howard, who is also the official Ambassador for Quiksilver, the results of which have seen him propelled to international fame on the current music scene.

Daisy loves to listen to artists Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz, a fact which is reflected in her surfer image and certainly in her music.

She has also played at the open mic nights at Sandy’s in Santa Eulalia, her first island performance. From loving that first taster of the musical world she has also recently performed at Las Salinas beach, Cala Llenya market, Els Dissables al Mercat Vell and a very successful night at Can Jordi in San Jose. Now, it’s time for her to show Jesús what she’s made of, with the confirmation of her first gig this weekend in the village of the same name. “I have so much love, and feel so attached to this island, I think this shows through my music, and it is something I’d love to be able to share with the rest of Ibiza”

It is therefore with the greatest of pleasure that we present Miss Daisy Veale, live and direct this Sunday 9TH December from 2pm in this winter’s hot-spot of choice, FAB Bar, Ibiza.

Speaking of her weekend gig, Daisy said “Next stop FAB on Sunday! Should be good, it’s a sweet place, I’m really looking forward to it!”

So there you have it, this Sunday from 2 pm, a traditional, mouth-watering roast and a chance to listen to the wonderful up and coming singer Daisy Veale- New Talent in the Making, remember where you heard it first.

More information on singer/songwriter Daisy Veale:

Daisy Veale has lived on this beautiful white island of Ibiza practically all her life; enjoying the beautiful paradise we live in, a keen water sports girl! She started off just mucking around in her bedroom, creating lyrics and tunes in which allowed her to express herself which she then performed to her parents for fun, just like every other ordinary teenager who enjoys music… from doing that and now being the Quiksilver Ambassador she has come along way …

Her first real experience of performing live was at the open-mic nights at Sandy’s in Santa Eulalia, she thoroughly enjoyed it, the crowd dancing and clapping away, “ It was really enthusiastic to see how well people responded to my songs, which gave me a lot of confidence” from then on big things would happen to this girl…

And so it did, she performed at our event for Els Dissables al Mercat in which Daisy portrayed her wonderful skills to the public, a duo with a friend from school at Cala Llenya market, a party at Las Salinas beach, to a very successful night at Can Jordi…

After experiencing a couple of events, Daisy Veale knew she wanted to enhance her skills and show the public her ability. This led to the Quiksilver women’s competition, in which she had to produce three videos showing her talent. With this she was listed as the top 3 out of 250 candidates. As you could probably guess she was over the moon by just that achievement, however when she was chosen as the Singer for Quiksilver’s women Ambassador, in which she will be representing Quiksilver and touring around Spain in spring, it was as if a dream had come true “I am so excited to be a part of the Quiksilver team and working with such inspiring people, I just cant believe this is real”

Oh, it’s real alright. This girl is going places…
