About Rocket and the Renegades
A tiny little dynamo, Rocket packs a seriously powerful punch of high energy fun into her blend of original music and rock, rock n roll and classic country cover favorites.
With a rocking growl evocative of the great Wanda Jackson, Rocket, aka Robin Magder Pierce is a fiery force of vocal and songwriting talent. From her stirring hometown anthem, Born In The Hammer, to the tongue in cheek humour of Best You Never Had to the sweet poignancy of One Year, Rocket’s songs will knock your socks off.
Fresh off the release of her debut CD “Born In The Hammer” in May of 2018, Rocket is joined by the amazing guitar and vocal talents of Rick Prinsthal, the bass groove provided with the panache of Trevor Rogers, and the ever steady drum beats of Derek Millar. Rocket and the Renegades is guaranteed to leave a crowd always wanting more.
