Straight outta ‘Newtown Rock Academy’ come Disconnect –
a four piece rock band of boys aged 12-13, who have been playing since 2018. Their first live performance was at the 2019 Smoke Free Rock Quest where they played an original punk inspired “Rules of Rock” to a rapturous audience. At the time they were one of the youngest entries in the Wellington region. This ignited their passion for live performance and since then they have gone on to play a number of small gigs.
They are inspired by a range of genres – punk, grunge, 80’s hair metal and indie rock – and play a mixture of energetic covers and originals. All four boys go to different schools around south and east Wellington, but come together every week to practice hard and dream of rock super-stardom.
