Rockett Queen / Press

“Rockett Queen hail from Tyler, TX, but you’d swear they walked straight off the Sunset Strip. Flip the disc over to see three guys that embody the glitz and glamour of the Rock N Roll lifestyle with a modern twist to the wardrobe…no spandex thank God! The best part is Rockett Queen don’t have to rely on their image because the music speaks for itself.They have a genuine radio ready sound, and the songs are catchy. Each song utilizes a simple, yet effective formula that blend the glory of 80′s Glam with a new sound which helps define the band, and make them rise above the crop of shit you’d normally find on said radio. Though I normally turn away from music of this genre, Rockett Queen have appealed to my Glam Metal roots, and touched a special spot in me that makes me like them despite the disc sitting next to my Rotting Corpse disc. Thankfully, the two have yet to wage war on my shelf.”

“Rockett Queen was in Houston to perform an intimate concert after a murder mystery dinner/benefit. Those that attended the exclusive event at Super Happy Fun Land were treated to a really fun time. The music was loud and rocked hard. Plus, frontman Walter Lee was pretty funny. I loved the crowd interaction and reaction! The band had a way of including everyone in their show. I don’t believe anyone really wanted it to end.”

“Another heavy bill as Murder FM, Cage 9, Betawolf and Rockett Queen pillage through Trees in Deep Ellum on February 10th, 2011 for what was a hot show on a very cold night in Dallas Texas. Tyler Texas rock band, Rockett Queen, opened the show with their high energy performance setting the evening off on a positive pace. This young zestful four piece band proved once again they came to play and play hard. Rockett Queen delivered the goods. ”
