Rocket Launch

Orange County, CA

Little did we know. Little did anyone know. On the eve - or there abouts - of the 2020 global pandemic, Good at Rockets met, started rehearsing and working through a live set, ready to debut.

Set list polished, nearly, and shows booked.  

Founded by Joel Cassara and John McCabe -  we write and perform original songs, with a keen eye on one day finding a cover song or two to include in the set list. That hasn't happened yet.   

Joel Cassara has been in bands in Southern California for many years, most recently running an eight-year stint as drummer for the band Union Down.  

Don Erikson has long been a part of the Southern California music community, with past  bassist assignments in  Blind Ruby, Echo Sparks - and current bassist for The Matter. Erikson and John McCabe previously worked together when they co-founded  Engine Trouble in 2017.   

John McCabe has been performing around Orange County as a solo acoustic act for the last several years and has released 3 solo EPs and a handful of singles.    

All dressed up and no place to go.
