Rock Factory Client Testimonials

“We needed an urgent sound system for our gig at The Vic, Devonport on Saturday night. The Rock Factory came to the rescue. Rory and his counterpart were amazing. Audience said our best sound yet. Friendly, helpful, professional. Thank you Rock Factory from The Wonderfish Collective.”
Glenn Coldham
“The Rock Factory are friendly, reliable, and provide a stellar service. We used Michelle and the team for a conference we ran for 150 teachers in Auckland. Not only did they provide us competitive pricing, but their service and equipment were exceptional. The team arrived on time, set up in an efficient manner, and made sure our speaker was confident using the equipment. Michelle even returned for day two of our conference to make sure everything was running smoothly. Would most definitely use the Rock Factory again.”
Elise Hunter
“A huge thanks to The Rock Factory for being a part of The River Sounds Festival! The event could not have gone any better and the sounds guys were a dream to deal with, they were on top of everything and made my job so easy on the day. The sound system was fantastic, the changeovers were quick and easy and all the bands raved about how professional the sound team were!”
