Well what a Year so far....

We've been trying hard to keep the Rocket Ship going, we've managed, with the help of venues that can conform to the ever changing rules, regulations and advice to do a few gigs this year so far, many of our Festivals have been moved over to next year.

The end of 2019 saw the sad departure of great friend and co founder of The Delray Rockets, Oz Osborne, due to his on going and progressively worsening arthritis to his hands, it was his wish the band would carry on, so the search for a new guitarist was put out there, a great friend, guitarist Dr Croc came forward expressing his desire to join the band, an audition wasn't necessary as we knew he was already and awesome Axe man and great guy...  Thus Oz's replacement....... Then Covid struck.... I'm sure we will be out trekking across the country and Europe and beyond again soon.... When? we don't know, Keep following us, and keep supporting us, as you know we love our fan base and always take time to chat and listen to your stories...

Keep Rockin' Katz and Kittenz... See you on the other side of these dark days.....

Debut Album Recording

Well, we have now finally booked a date to start recording the debut album.

We will commence recording at The Edge Recording Studios in Cheshire on 11th May.

We have been trying to get in the studio for quite some time now, but due to constant gigging, this is the first chance we have had to get a date nailed down.

We are really excited about the recording and with a lot of you guys asking "when is the album coming out", sounds like you are too.

The Album should be available in the Summer (for those of you who have forgotten; that is the season when we are supposed to get sunshine and warmth)

Review of gig at Keystones 30 Dec 2011

In 1951 Leo Fender released the first commercial bass guitar and thus made the upright bass obsolete, although nobody seemed to tell Gaz Le Bass this or the band The Delray Rockets as they put on their show at Keystones, and man what a show. The band consisted of Gaz Le Bass on upright bass and vocals, David ???Oz??? Osborne on guitar and vocals and new boy Jon Ballard on drums. David Osborne, dressed smart in slim black trousers and a short sleeve shirt, supported a rockabilly quiff to make Rock Hudson die of shame. He played the guitar like a demon easily slipping from old time Rock ???N??? Roll to modern day punk all with a 50s twist. Oz stood at his 50s style mic and howled and yipped and sang with such enthusiasm, it was obvious that he loved being up there on stage. And if Oz was the good ole boy the Gaz Le Bass was the naughty backdoor man. He too supported the quiff and long side burns but his tattoos made him a man of two eras and he fitted well into both, with his leather trousers and sleeveless vest he wheeled the Bass like an oversized guitar; if the size was a problem it didn???t seem to bother Le Bass as he played it upright, horizontally and even upside down. The audience responded to the two playing off eachother by filling the dance floor and boogie-ing and jiving (or wobbling in an alcohol induced daze lol). The songs that they played ran a whole gambit of eras and styles from Brian Setzer???s Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and Elvis Presley???s Burning Love to the Undertones??? Teenage Kicks and songs by Van Morrison, The Clash and even Steppenwolf, all this plus original compositions. The energy was infectious with each member of the audience contaminated by Be Bop fever leading them to sing, whoop and hit the dancefloor. Like the Pied Pipers of Worcester they lead their throng of fans on a merry journey that seemed as if it was a forever ride performing, as they did, several encores as the crowd continuously called for more. At 10 past midnight it came to a close with everyone immediately looking forward to February 4th when The Delray Rockets play The Marrs Bar in a double bill with Riff Raff. All in all a great night???I know it was only Rock ???N??? Roll but I liked it. CM xx
