Rocket 77 is a Plural Gender RnR Army of 4 that play 90's/70's influenced modern punk. Their songs have an eye towards political and social dissent with a love song or 2 thrown in for good measure. Social Distortion, Bad Religion, the Ramones, Rise Against, & Pennywise are bands that influence a Punchy & Catchy sound that is all their own.

We're reliable, show up for load in when told, play our set, and clear the stage quickly so the next band can start on time.
We will play just about anywhere. Theater, Arena, Dive Bar, Social Club, Festival, Anti Trump Rally, Bernie Sanders event, Beach House, Back Yard, Retirement Home... you name it. We will play with just about any style band.
Ultimately we are looking to cover travel expenses and score some Taco Bell.
Local gigs we ask for an equitable split of the door. If there is a touring band on a local show, we donate our share to them.
Regional gig guarantee is based upon distance and cover price at the door. Please contact Rocket Entertainment for a quote.
