THE ROCKETS break the norm of traditional private affair bands. THE ROCKETS are high energy, interactive, show & party band loaded with talent & personality. Our song list is diverse & we play continuous music throughout your entire event by our DJ or the band. Our repertoire spans from popular genres to ethnic classics. The full production of lighting, audio and video is incredible, making your event nothing short of a private concert!
THE ROCKETS front line vocalists entertain with expression, high energy choreography & powerful voices. Our love of music & entertainment is palpable, spilling over into your party as we engage your guests & families. Each of the members of THE ROCKETS has an impressive biography of experience that will elevate your affair to a level that your guests will be talking about for years to come.
We booked the Rockets for our wedding having seen them perform many times in Philadelphia as well as down the Jersey shore. We knew from experience exactly what we would be getting, a high energy band that can keep the party going all night. Along with the band, they also emcee and DJ the event as well. They handle all entertainment aspects of the wedding so that you have nothing to worry about except for having fun. Dave Asimos, their production manager, was great to work with. He was extremely responsive to any questions we had and was always available to talk if necessary. During the wedding, the band played everything from current songs to classics for some of our older guests, and It doesn’t stop with just singing. For many of their songs they incorporate choreographed dances, which really puts them on the next level compared to other bands. They give you the freedom to plan your entire evening from start to finish, set your playlist, and even join in with the band. They encouraged the bridal party to join them up on stage multiple times to sing and dance. Quite possibly my favorite part of the night was when they gave me the opportunity to be the front man of the band for the boy band set. They gave the bride a front row seat on the dance floor and let me and the groomsmen do our thing. Our guests absolutely loved this and got a good laugh out of it at the expense of a little embarrassment on my end. It is obvious that the Rockets have been doing this for a long time, they are well managed and their professionalism is top notch. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to make their wedding an experience that they will never forget!

I went with a group of girls to Atlantic City for the night and we ended up at the bar Secrets… Much to our surprise we didn’t get back to the room until about 4. Why? .... The Rockets They blew us away!!! I came home from the getaway and told my husband I don’t care what we do or don’t do for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah party ....the Rockets need to be there! He booked them sight unseen trusting me.. but said the least we need to do is go back to Atlantic city before the party and connect with them. So we took the road trip and returned to Secrets. He looked at me at one point in the night and said.. “Now I get it!” Their energy and love for all that they do is beyond. They came to the party and knocked it out of the park. I don’t know who was happier the kids or the adults. My daughter who is 13 and was hesitant of having a band instead of a DJ at her party later said "best decision ever!!" These guys are ROCKSTARS! The amount of friends who are still talking about them months later and trying to make some sort of excuse to have a party so that they can be there is insane. We had a ton of music execs in the room and they were blown away. Some friends didn’t even realize we had a live band. They thought it was the DJ playing! I can’t rant and rave enough about these guys!! They love performing, they love what they do and they love people!!!
Heading to Atlantic City this weekend see them again!!! Love them!!!

My phone has not stopped going off and its been over a week! The rockets killed it! Complete show stoppers! I am still in awe of how perfect everything was and how much fun we all had. I have been giving out your schedule cards you gave me that night! However, its November and everyone wants December!!!!!!!!! I cant wait to see my favorite band again! Is there a way to subscribe to a mailing list to see the upcoming shows? Also, my uncle asked for your email to book the rockets for a few of his upcoming events. Two girls asked for your info for their upcoming weddings!
Dave, you hands down saved my disaster of a wedding and gave Craig and I a night we will never forget, i can not put into words how grateful we are! Thank you for all you had done for us!
See you soon!!!!!!

It was great having you and The Rockets perform at the museum on November 14, 2014 for the Blackbird Technologies celebration event. Not only are you a talented and engaging band that the event attendees enjoyed listening and dancing to, but from a museum prospective you were very conscience about working in a museum environment and respectful of our space and the artifacts that surrounded you.
In short, The Rockets are a fabulous band and I look forward to welcoming you back to the museum for future events!
