The Rockets are a four piece rock n roll band based in Dublin. Passionate, lifestyle 1950s rock n roll devotees the band have been playing as a cover band on the entertainment circuit for fun for a number of years.
In the past year we have been writing and recording potential original songs with a view to an EP and eventually an album release in 2013.
These songs are all in a 1950s R&B style which reflects our influences and passions.

The Rockets are made up of veterans from several Dublin original bands: Puppy Love Bomb, The Josephs, Eva Dallas and OCB to name a few.
We have been busy touring Ireland over the past 4 years and have made a reputation for ourselves in the UK as the top 50s rock n roll band representing The Beatles Hamburg days at The International Beatles Festival in Liverpool. For the past four years we have attended this festival topping the bill at The Cavern Club and Adelphi Hotel.

However we have always planned to write, record and release some original material influenced by our passions for 1950s Rock n Roll.

With successful funding we plan to record, mix and distribute an EP of four original songs in Spring 2013. These recordings would then form the basis of an 8 or 9 track album which would be completed later in the summer.

Our video contains some demos of songs which we plan to include on the EP.

The basic plan for recording is as follows:
5 days in the studio early in April 2013 / Cost -  1400
Audio mastering / Cost -  250
CD manufacturing inc artwork / Cost -  600
Registering of tracks on digital retailers / Cost -  50
100 promo release CD's for media / Cost -  150
Producer fee (we have a well known Dublin producer and artist interested in working on the project, his name will be announced upon project initiation) / Cost - TBC
Remaining  650 will go towards producer fee and any remaining will go towards a PR campaign to promote the release

We have added an extensive list for rewards which we feel are fun and engaging for the funder. We will also blog the entire project with photos and emails and funders will be updated with regular progress.

Thank you so much for taking an interest in our campaign. Thanks for supporting original music, and thanks for supporting real 1950s Rock n Roll and R&B!

On the wrist, they offer a conservative look that many people welcome, but with just enough novelty to be replica watches sale. Back in 2012, Rolex released a rare brand new model with the Sky-Dweller timepiece family (debuted here). I say "rare" because it is not common for Rolex to release a totally new replica watches uk of timepieces - with also a new name. The Rolex Sky-Dweller is also among the most complicated modern watches, because it contains a movement that combines both a GMT indicator as well as an annual calendar (it rolex replica watches both the date as well as the month, so you only need to adjust the date on those years where February does not have 28 days). From a technical replica watches uk, the in-house made rolex replica calibre 9001 automatic movement is rather cool.
