About
Rocket 88 is a three piece Acoustic Rockabilly Band -Guitar, Upright Bass, and Drums. We do the standard Rockabilly repertoire - Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Stray Cats, Elvis, plus an eclectic mix of other artists such as the Beatles, Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, Ike Turner, and just about anything you'd like to hear.

We cover the decades from the 50's to the 80's, so there's usually something for everyone. In addition, we deliver the tunes with a humorous dialogue and encourage the audience to get involved.

What sets us apart is that we have the dynamic range for any event - large or small . We can play acoustically for Cocktail Hours, where people want to hear each other talk, but we turn it up when it's time to dance.

All three of us sing, and we get a very 'big' sound. Some folks even think we have the sound of a larger group. We work very well together and work very hard to make your affair a success.

Rocket 88 was the perfect band for our wedding reception! The music is fun and very entertaining. The dancers enjoyed them as well as guests who preferred to listen and watch, in fact some guests said they'd planned on leaving sooner but stayed for the last set because the band was so good. If your looking for a fun band that is professional and very talented, this is it.

Rocket 88 did an amazing job for my husband's 30th birthday party - they even took his favorite song and did a specially arranged Rockabilly version just for him! This is a super talented group that really wants to make your event a success, and they are wonderful to work with. I just loved their performance and would definitely hire them again!

Rocket 88 did a fantastic job at our birthday party. They covered music from the 50-80s which appealed to our diverse crowd. There was something for everyone to enjoy. The music was upbeat, fun and really added to our event. They also have a great sense of humor and mixed with our guests nicely. In addition, they are very professional, easy to work with and extremely accommodating. My wife and I recommend them highly and would have them back again for future events
