Songs are memories. Songs are important. We care about music. A lot.  

That one little part in your favorite song that other bands might not notice...well, we notice it. Who sang that harmony? What guitar did they use to get that sound? If I wear tighter pants will I indeed move like Jagger? We've done the research, and we will show you what we've learned.


THE SHOW

YOU SHOULD BE DANCING

No need to worry. No need to cry. We bring the party every time. Small room or arena, it is no matter. You are safe in the arms of SKYROCKET! We've been together forever, and have experienced every live situation known to man. Plus, we have a killer sound person.


THE MUSIC

Most of our repertoire is from the '70s and '80s (the two best decades for pop/rock in our humble opinion) but we occasionally venture out when it's appropriate. Over the years we've learned close to 500 songs and operate from a rotation of around 100 at a time.

View a song list here.

 


THE VIDEO

We work tirelessly on the video visuals that accompany our performance which, hopefully, augments the music by providing an extra level kick. We're always looking for ways to provide maximum entertainment and further set SKYROCKET! apart from run of the mill background bands. 

Spazmatics hi res photo 2015.jpg

SPAZMATICS

The Spazmatics are the endless fun 80’s dance and show band you’ve been hearing about.
The Spazmatics were born in the spring of 1983 when physics professor Kevin Stigwood of Alta Dena High in Thousand Oaks California, lost a debate over String Theory to an upstart pupil in front of the entire student body and faculty. As agreed to by both parties, the loser would have to do anything that the winner demanded, and the victorious prodigy demanded that Mr. Stigwood perform “She Blinded Me With Science” by Thomas Dolby during half-time at an upcoming state basketball championship game.
Having no musical background and desperate to not go down in total humiliation, Professor Stigwood formed The Spazmatics by tapping the genius of electronics teacher Sydney Balderman (AKA “Syd Sonic”), who had achieved international acclaim in 1981 for his invention of “robot drums.” When Balderman (who was also the girls water polo coach at Alta Dena Middle School) explained that most of the music could be generated by computers, and that all he needed was a couple of decent musicians to complete The Spazmatics, Stigwood was ecstatic. To make The Spazmatics complete, Stigwood brought in his special needs brother Curtis on bass, and teacher’s assistant Rusty A. Woosmeir (AKA “The Raw”) on guitar.When The Spazmatics took center court that evening, members of the hip elite began heckling them with jibes of “geek” and “nerd,” while everyone else howled with laughter. But once they broke into the opening salvo of “Science,” the nonbelievers were stunned by the group’s authenticity of production, world class musicianship, and tight choreography. The Spazmatics performance came to a climax when Stigwood grabbed one of the cheerleaders and began doing the “Belinda” up and down the court with her in tow. When it was all over, the crowd rose in a standing ovation, and The Spazmatics were born.

The Maxx.jpg

THE MAXX

It’s rare to find a band that is steeped in tradition, yet remarkably modern, but The Maxx embodies that statement. Founding members Rod Whittaker (bass/keyboards/vocals), Leroy “Roc” Lovelace (sax/vocals), and Steven Rollins (guitar) are products of the Atlanta band era when neighborhood kids emulated their favorite 70’s funk groups. For over twenty years, The Maxx has continued this tradition by performing the music of their youth along with classic oldies and today’s pop music. Their energetic choreography and eclectic sound keeps them traveling the world entertaining countless weddings, conventions, and major corporate events; including Bill Gates and Microsoft.
The Maxx DNA consists of a strict work ethic instilled by their blue collar parents and endless childhood rehearsals. This discipline elevated The Maxx from a talent show house band to a college tour staple. By naming themselves after The Ohio Players’ album, Climax, it seems they were already prepared for greatness. As the music industry began to shift away from bands in favor of solo artists, the chance of signing to a major label became less likely. This change forced The Maxx to take control of their musical destiny. The process started when they re-named themselves The Maxx to establish their own unique sound. The band’s focus culminated to a decision to move from pursuing a record deal to pursuing their true passion; helping people enjoy life’s most treasured moments. Their Christmas album, For The Holidays, and intimate stage presence are proof of their commitment. By putting their clients first, The Maxx combines professionalism with captivating entertainment.
Over the years, The Maxx has learned that in order to sustain a successful career, they would have to constantly re-invent themselves. 2002 saw the addition of their first and only female vocalist, Rainy Middleton, a remarkable vocalist whose voice can tear a hole in the sky. With the addition of Alvin “Deuce” Batiste, Jr. (drums), Andre Bernard (trombone/keyboards/vocals) and Menes Ray (trumpet/vocals), The Maxx stays current while propelling their legacy forward. On stage and off, The Maxx exemplify their name through a relentless pursuit of excellence. They tour 125 days out of the year while tailoring their set list to personalize every performance. Even with frequent travels, The Maxx has not forgotten their roots. They support children with their very own 501c3 non-profit, Musical Youth Of America, an organization developed to promote and provide music education to elementary and middle school children. Furthermore, they support and promote high school music programs, with their organization, Band Room Nation. The Maxx has come full circle in having two non-profit organizations give back to the community that produced them. The Maxx recognize that it’s more than music. It’s about creating special moments in people’s lives. Through their musical integrity, The Maxx invests in future generations while bringing joy to the hearts of many.

Tin Man Band.png

THE TIN MAN BAND

It all started in Kansas City where Jeff Taylor was born and where at an early age he was exposed to the rich history and colors of that city's deep jazz tradition. He started gigging at the tender age of twelve with the “Al Bronson Polka Band”, and by the age of fourteen began playing lead trumpet for the “Kansas City Shriner Big Band”, as well as gigging around the Kansas City area during his High School years.
Jeff was awarded the N.A.J.E. outstanding musician award nine times during his high school and college years. Shortly afterward he was awarded the Outstanding Lead Trumpet prize at the Chicago Jazz Festival and Hawaiian Jazz Festival. He attended the University of Kansas, where he received a full scholarship in trumpet performance. He later attended the University of North Texas, where he studied with the legendary trumpet teacher Don “Jake” Jacoby. After a few years of intensive studies, the Clark Terry Big Band picked him up to play lead trumpet, which was then followed by a two-year stint of playing lead with the Maynard Ferguson Orchestra. He finally landed in Dallas, where he played with Bill Tillman (Blood Sweat and Tears) for nearly a decade. Jeff has also had the Honor of performing for former presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barak Obama…and his jazz trio is a regular for the Bush family’s events at their Dallas home.
He started his first band as leader in 1995 performing for corporate events, weddings and for Dallas’s most elite clientele, and in recent years has morphed into The TIN MAN BAND, one of the hottest cover/variety dance bands to come out of Dallas in years. Through tinkering with different players and singers, researching the most popular dance material and working with the best sound equipment, Jeff has hit on the right mix of all these elements, as well as the intangibles that inevitably construct a winning team, thereby producing The TIN MAN BAND!
Any good dance band is literally built from the ground up with one primary goal. Deliver a great party, and The TIN MAN BAND is doing that in a big way. Just ask Melisa Minto, Director of Catering and Events at Westwood Country Club in Austin. When booking a band for their annual holiday bash last December, she mentioned that in the past, getting people on the dance floor has been a difficult chore. But moments into her event featuring The TIN MAN BAND, Minto exclaimed, “I’m floating on a cloud… look at them on the dance floor! TIN MAN is awesome!” Sure enough, The TIN MAN Band’s driving, high energy show had the dance floor packed all evening long. Melissa has become one of our best ‘sales person’. You can ask her yourself.
There are others, as well. Just ask us for a list of references. Jeff’s hard work in assembling this group of smashingly talented players is paying off big time with amazing parties all over this part of the country. And the hits just keep on coming…
