About us

Rock “N” Rolla is an innovative company specialising in fun, stylish and portable record players.

Quality and reliability are our main goals. Rock “N” Rolla players are built to last.

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 favourite music.

Realising that the portable record player market place was filled with low price, unreliable, poor quality products, we have used our knowledge and contacts to produce high quality, reliable record players which are superior to the rest, but keeping the cost affordable to be the obvious choice for your next record player purchase.

Hand selecting quality components, adding modern technology but keeping that famous 50s styling was at the forefront of our plan.

Only using quality components and strict quality control procedures, Rock “N” Rolla players are a musical note above the rest.

Founded by:

Jonathan Kendrick

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.

John Paul Dejoria

John Paul DeJoria is Chairman and CEO of John Paul Mitchell Systems, the producer and manufacturer of Paul Mitchell hair care products, the largest privately held salon hair care company in North America. Paul Mitchell products are sold through 35 distributors within the United States to more than 90,000 hair salons. Internationally, John Paul Mitchell Systems has distribution in 73 countries that market company product to over 15,000 hair salons.

In addition to John Paul Mitchell Systems, John Paul’s success continues with numerous other businesses including Patron Tequila – the world’s biggest premium tequila brand – and natural gas and environmentally friendly energy exploration companies. John Paul is on the Board of Directors of the Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF) and a member of the Council of Advisors of Global Green USA, the United States affiliate of Green Grass USA, the United States affiliate of Green Cross International, whose President is His Excellency Mikhail S. Gorbachev, former President of the U.S.S.R. He is also on the Board of Trustees of Waterkeepers, whose lead counsel is Robert Kennedy Jr. dedicated to protect the waterways of the world from polluters. He is also active with helping the homeless find employment.

Marshall Blonstein

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.
