About Us



Welcome to the official website of Rock-Ola...

...the only authentic American jukebox manufacturer on the face of the planet. We’ve been manufacturing jukeboxes since 1927, so we know a thing or two about what makes them tick! Today we’ve got almost a century of history to our name, and we’ve hit some pretty impressive milestones along the way – having made our name in the Golden Age of Jukeboxes as one of the industry’s ‘Big Four’ of global manufacturers, we’re perhaps most famous for our Bubbler line of jukeboxes, which have become some of the most successful and best-selling in history.

Our Passion for Jukeboxes

You don’t have to be a music historian to recognize the unmistakable silhouette of a classic Bubbler. Its vibrant colors, super-smooth sound, and the namesake bubbles floating to the top of the tubes lining its exquisite oak cabinet – these are all amongst the hallmarks of its timeless design, part of what’s made it so eternally popular throughout the ages. Our thriving passion, combined with the world-class expertise of our engineers, has resulted in designs that have defined an era. Throughout all our decades in business, we’ve always loved to hold a mirror up to contemporary American culture, reflecting some truly iconic US cultural touchstones in our designs. Amongst our stock, you’ll find jukeboxes dedicated to Harley Davidson, Coca Cola, and even Elvis Presley – and that’s just to name a few!

Incorporating modern technology

What’s more, we’ve had a reputation for innovation here at Rock-Ola, and we’re always looking for ways to experiment with cutting-edge technology. One of the most recent examples of this ethos is our brand-new Vinyl 45rpm jukebox – combining Bluetooth connectivity with a rich vinyl-to-valve sound, it’s a unique blend of mid-century styling and 21st-century technology.

New Beginnings

Today, we’re under the leadership of British entrepreneur Alexander Walder-Smith. With decades of experience behind him in selling Rock-Ola jukeboxes to customers all over the world, his knowledge and passion for our craft are second to none. Now, with the launch of our brand-new website and a new generation of talent joining our team, we’re embarking upon a new, ambitious chapter of our continuing legacy.
