More about Rock ’N’ Rolla:
The founders of Rock “N” Rolla have a very impressive record when it comes to business but each founder is also a serious music fan, and all from the era when the vinyl record was the only way to enjoy your favorite music.
Realizing that the turntable market was filled with low price, unreliable, poor quality products, Rock ’N’ Rolla has used its founders’ knowledge and contacts to produce high quality, reliable record players which are superior to the rest, but keeping the price low to be the obvious choice for your next record player purchase. Hand selecting quality components, adding modern technology but keeping that famous '60s styling was at the forefront of the company’s plan. Only using quality components and strict quality control procedures, Rock 'N' Rolla players are a cut above the rest.
Jonathan Kendrick, co-founder and Chairman of ROK Stars, is a highly successful serial entrepreneur. Jonathan began his business career through securing the European rights to then-unknown Yokohama tyres brand (which, having successfully brought to market, he sold back to Yokohama). Recognizing, early on, the enormous potential of the mobile industry, Jonathan founded ROK to create the technology to simplify the process of pre-paid vouchers for mobile phones. Jonathan sold ROK’s electronic voucher technology to a leading mobile industry player in 2002 whilst retaining the ROK brand – which he re-launched with co-founder, John Paul DeJoria. ROK Stars is his latest launch created to garner investment for the very best new products and brands with game changing potential within each sector.

Blonstein started his career with Sony and Epic Records, then as a principal and co-founder of Ode Records, one of the greatest independent success stories in music business history. With Ode, Blonstein helped foster the success of Carole King’s landmark and timeless “Tapestry” album and Cheech and Chong’s memorable “Big Bambu,” a multi-platinum album that set a new standard for comedy records; and he built two of the biggest cult-film franchises, which still draw loyal audiences today– “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and Cheech and Chong’s “Up in Smoke.” Blonstein then served as President of Island Records, the label that virtually single-handedly broke artists like Steve Winwood and Robert Palmer to a worldwide audience and launched the career of reggae’s noted spiritual spokesman, Bob Marley. In 1986, he founded DCC Compact Classics; a company that became the premier audiophile imprint in the marketplace, as well a mainstay in the reissue arena. Among its many major achievements, DCC released titles by The Eagles, The Doors, Elvis Presley, Jethro Tull, The Beach Boys, and Nat King Cole. In 1999, in conjunction with the Sinatra family, Blonstein created Artanis Records. After exiting DCC in 2002, Blonstein joined forces with John Paul DeJoria to establish Morada Music/Audio Fidelity as an imprint from which to explore even newer technologies and opportunities.
Audio Fidelity’s audio releases include the Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder, The Doors, Jethro Tull, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens, The Pretenders, Yes, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Doobie Brothers and Bob Marley, just to name a few.
