FAQs

How long does the party usually go for?

Normally, we’re working with the kids for about 45 to 60 minutes and then we need about 30 minutes to make the CD’s for each child to take home with them.

Most parties go for about 2 hours in total.

How much space do I need?

A normal lounge room or living room is fine. We only need about 4 square metres in total.

What is the cost?

A Rock Star party costs $25 per person with a minimum of 10 kids required. A deposit of $250 is taken to secure your party and the balance ($25 per person in excess of 10 kids) is taken on the day of the party once the number of kids is known.

Can we pay cash on the day?

No. Our party hosts can not take cash on the day. All payments are made via credit or debit card.

What payment methods do you have?

We only take credit or debit cards either through our website or over the phone on our free call 1800 ROCK STAR phone number.

Can we pay by cheque, cash or direct deposit?

No, our only payment method is via credit or debit cards.

We have younger brothers/sisters/nieces/nephews who are too young to participate. Can they join in?

Any participant over 5 years of age will be charged for. We will provide one free copy of the CD per paying guest

Is it a CD recording or DVD recording?

Rock Star for a Day is a CD recording experience.

How many hosts will be there on the day?

One host will run the party.

Do they sing in a group or by themselves?

They will be singing in one group.

How will the party be run?

A party host will come to your home with a small, light weight portable recording studio.

They will require a table to rest the equipment on and will be set up within 5 minutes

The kids will:

  • Rehearse and record 2 songs
  • Pose in a photo shoot
  • Create a band name, and
  • Take home their finished CD, complete with their group photo on the front cover
When should the kids do the recording session?

At the beginning of the party.

How long do you need to set up?

About 5 minutes.

What do I need to organise for the recording part?

We need a table to place our small, light weight equipment on. A normal coffee table is ideal but a dining room table (or similar) is also an option. We need access to one power point.

What else do I need to organise?

It’s always good to have some music playing in the background. Select your favourite music and create a fun environment. Normally, you would organise a cake, some party games (e.g. musical statues) and some party food.

Do your hosts have working with children checks?

Yes, all our hosts have working with children checks.

What happens if one or more of the party guests are late?

We will try to be as accommodating as possible however if our host has another party after yours, they must allow sufficient travel time to be on time to the next party. Occasionally, late guests may miss out. If they arrive and start participating half way through, you will be charged as if they were there from the beginning.

What happens if we need to change the date or time of the party?

We always try to be flexible and changes must be made at least 14 days from the event for scheduling purposes. Changes will be subject to availability of the new time. Only one change will be allowed per customer. Please ensure the date and time is suitable prior to making a booking.

What quality recording should we expect?

Rock Star for a Day is a novelty recording experience. We record straight to CD without any editing of the vocals. Editing software does not work effectively when there are multiple singers. The recording you will receive is an exact replication of the performance given by kids. Some singers will be louder than others and your host will move the loud ones to the back in the rehearsal to improve the mix that will be recorded to CD

What is your refund policy?

We provide a part or full refund in the case that we are at fault in some way and this is at the full discretion of the Rock Star for a Day head office. In the very unlike case that we have equipment failure that prevents the party from going ahead, we will refund the deposit. We will however, do everything within our control to rectify any issues immediately, then and there on the spot.
