Gig Alert! The Brass Monkey, March 5!

Come out to the Brass Monkey, 250 Greenbank Road (near Hunt Club), on Saturday March 5th and check out the Lounge’s revamped set! As of Feb. 26th, they haven’t updated their calendar of events, but I assure you, we’re playing!

The Brass Monkey has a sweet setup for live music and we’re pumped to rumble the place. Tix are only $5 at the door, which is ridiculously cheap for a Saturday night out!

So, swing by, shoot some stick, and rock out with Rocket Lounge! The fun starts at 9:30. See you there! \m/

Live Video Goodness!

For those who have yet to witness the awesomeness that is a live Rocket Lounge show (ahem), here is a smattering of what you can expect!  You might as well grab a few beers and watch these, just to mimic the true experience of seeing the band live.  Thanks to Duane for providing us with the drunken handheld footage.  \m/

CHEO Event Recap

Hey Rocketeers,

Here’s a quick recap of the CHEO Charity show we were a part of at Greenfield’s Pub. Lou and all the crew at GF’s did a great job and raised some much needed coin for a great cause.

Unfortunately, we rolled in too late to see The Bruised Egos. No doubt they rocked the place as usual. The BE Band were up next and brought outstanding soul and blues to the stage. 3-piece horn section = awesome!

Woody’s band The Chixie Dicks slammed out some great classic rock, which one would expect from a CHEZ 106 radio personality. Really good stuff. There was 8 of them up there! Too cool…it was like a classic rock version of Slipknot.

Lou’s band The Wise Guys hit the stage around 9:30 and bluesed up the place with a great set of soulful blues jams. It’s a real treat to see brilliant musicians just going off and really feeling the music.

We took to the stage at 11:00 for our hour set, which turned into an hour and a half. We cranked it up with some originals, some classics, and most of the rocked up 80s tunes we know. Those 80s tunes went over SO well with the crowd. I mean, who expects to hear a Thompson Twins song from a 4-piece rock band?

All in all, we had a blast and we hope Lou asks us back next year!

Rocket for the Ride Recap

So, we’ve had 10 days to digest the show we played at Greenfield’s Pub in Barrhaven. All in all, we couldn’t have been more pleased!

Through the generosity of the 120+ people who came out to the show, we helped raise around $1400 for the Ottawa Motorcycle Ride for Dad. Every cent goes toward the fight against prostate cancer.

The show itself was awesome. We sounded great thanks to the pro setup at the pub. In my opinion, Greenfield’s is in the top 3 live music venues in Ottawa. We loved ripping up our original tunes and unique-ish set of covers at such a great sounding venue. It makes SO much difference when you can hear yourself clearly. Go figure…

We can’t thank everyone enough, from our loyal Rocketeers, the bar staff and the top-shelf people at the Ride for Dad. You guys rock!

Next up for us is another hot, steamy night at Bass Line Station, Saturday July 17. We hope to see you there!

Happy 4th Anniversary Bass Line Station!

Big congratz are in order for AJ and the BLS crew for four years of alcohol-fueled, rockin’ good times!

Come on out to Bass Line on Tuesday and catch us at the open jam. We’ll crank out some RL faves as a tune up for the big gig in Limoges on the 23rd and jam it up with the awesome talent that always graces the Bass Line stage.

I think the fun starts around 9 or so. Hope to see you there…corner of Baseline and Greenbank! \m/
