Rockbot is a relatively new background music solution for businesses, providing a highly controlled virtual jukebox. Rockbot also makes an app that customers can use to vote on the music played at these businesses. The service is used by the likes of JetBlue, Lucky Strike, and select Burger King locations.
Rockbot recently closed a round of funding from Universal Music Group, Detroit Venture Partners, Susa Ventures, XG Ventures, and an AngelList syndicate led by Sundeep Ahuja. No financial details have been disclosed due to Universal’s strategic investment.
TechCrunch says Rockbot will use the money to expand to bars, restaurants, and other locations in the U.S.
