''The Rocket Revellers are a true treasure of Vancouver's music scene. The band are stewards of a nearly lost tradition of early rock-n-roll, swing and blues. They are able to play this music with a vitality that makes it seem brand new.''”

— Noah Walker 'Kitty & the Rooster'

The Rocket Revellers formed in 2012 in Vancouver B.C. playing weekly to sold out shows in Vancouvers Historic Gastown District at the Revel Room for the last 8 years. The dance floor is packed and sounds of western swing, jump blues, gospel and rockabilly come one after another, you have to check these cats out! Members of the band are quite renowned in the roots music scene and have many credits to their names.
