Gig Alert: Nov. 11 – BassLine Pub & Eatery

The Lounge is back at BassLine!

Come join us on Friday Nov. 11th around 9:30-ish for a special night at BassLine Pub & Eatery (2557 Baseline Road). In light of Remembrance Day, we’ll be raising money for the Canadian Forces Personnel Assistance Fund. All money collected at the door will be donated to the fund, which provides financial assistance to serving and former members of the Canadian Forces (CF) and their immediate families.

In order to fulfill its mission, the CFPAF partially relies on donations. To make a tax-deductible donation to the CFPAF, please visit the SISIP FS website. We have already confirmed generous donations from the Union of National Defence Employees Union, (UNDE) Local 70603 and the Public Servants Alliance of Canada (PSAC) on behalf of all the Public Servants for the National Capitol Region (NCR). Public servants…is there anything they can’t do?

I’m blown away by the generosity displayed by the folks in the Public Service and Canadian Forces. Public servants work tirelessly every day in service of Canadians and to see the solidarity between the public service and the Canadian Forces is very awesome!

This is our first show after a short hiatus from playing, so we SO ready to rock BassLine ’till the wee hours!

Let’s do this!

RL launching into 2010

Hello fans,

Well people, we will soon be rolling over into a new calendar year…2010!  Big things are on the horizon for the boys in the band.  We have the second half of the new album to write and record, we’re starting to line up a bunch of new gigs around town, and we’ll be adding a fire-eating donkey named Chico to our live shows!!…ok, just kidding, but how cool would that be?!

RL - 2010

Rather than staying close to Ottawa for all our shows, we will be venturing into new ground and checking out what the O-Valley has to offer.  There are so many great venues that we haven’t had the chance to play at yet, so we’re really pumped to bring our show to them.  Keep checking in here to keep up to date on all the new show stops and dates!

We’ve heard the Valley fans love their Rock and Roll and want to see more live bands play close to their town….well the best is on its way in 2010!…be warned ;0

Cheers,   RL.

New Album Update!

Hello RL fans from around the globe!

Well, our “Master of the Knobs” (wow that sounds bad…) Duane has completed the final mix-down of the first five songs we recorded a few months ago!

The list is as follows: Make me King, Shot Queen, Outside Man, Where Do I Begin, and a reinvented cover of the Ramones tune Havana Affair.

It’s pretty cool to see the tunes come together once again. I kinda forgot what that was like.  To tell you the truth we play through the songs so quickly when we’re recording, I hope my parts sound good and there’s no flubs in there anywhere!  After listening and burning some copies last night, everything sounds good and tight…I’m happy!

We are currently testing another original song that is coming together as well.  I’m not sure how many tunes we are planning to put on this album, but close to ten I would imagine.  A nice even ten would be perfect…just have to write the remaining four!  I blame Areeb for dragging his feet all the time. It’s just not fair to the rest of us *snicker*.  Then we could start planning the world tour, streamline our riders, purchase new gear, and start rounding up chicks with very poor morals:-)

Cheers,  RL

ROCKET LOUNGE LIVE – MAY 2ND, 2009

YOU WANTED THE BEST, YOU GOT THE BEST!

Yes, yes, it’s confirmed.  ROCKET LOUNGE will be rockin’ at Bass Line station once again, May 2nd at 9:30pm.  We’ll be playing at Bass Line once every few months this year, so we’re pretty excited!

Bass Line is charging cover for bands on Saturday nights now, so this will have a $5 cover.

It promises to be another great night at the Station!  We’ll be testing a few new originals and covers that should be ready by then (*fingers crossed*) along with our normal repertoire of killer classics!

The Chrome Beast Kit will also make its debut….bring some ear plugs people, safety is key 🙂

Cheers,  RL     m/   m/
