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.   

Bass player and former long tenured band mate of Joel's in Union Down, Brian Blokdijk is an Orange County native who has been active in the local music community for the last 10 years.

John McCabe has been performing around Orange County as a solo acoustic act for the last several years and was co-founder of the Engine Trouble trio.    

All dressed up and no place to go.
