RedRocket [Rock / Pop, 4 piece]
Another brilliant set by RedRocket - be about the 8th time I have seen them & never disappointed
Loved their version of 'Alice' - last night was more of the floor filling stuff, as they have a wide setlist
Fab to hear a female vocal to Highway To Hell - not enough of that end of their setlist for my taste
Have to try to see them play a longer set, as O'Neills have reduced band times over the past year, to hear more
Don't just take my word for it - get out n see them
They were fab up @ The Garibaldi in Knaphill when I saw them thereSaturday 13 October 2018
Thanks Dave for the great review. We always love getting feedback .
We do try and change our sets around from gig to gig and appreciate that our crowds like a mix of genres of songs and tend to try and tailor to suit the crowd. We did have a large crowd in last night that had asked for a party set, but will try for more rockier set for you next time.
Thank you to Redrocket for making my party one to remember!
Great choice of songs for various tastes and very professional.
Thoroughly recommend seeing them or booking them for a function.
Amazing. Thank you so much.Monday 19 March 2018
Thanks for the review Claire.
Glad we could make your party a memorable one.
Great atmosphere on a very cold snowy night.
Look forward to seeing you at a gig sometime in the future.
Initially sceptical because of the MP3's on here that I would enjoy a hard rock band (by my usual taste in music). Got to the redecorated Goat and saw their playlist on the stage so asked if I could have a look. Surprise - lots of tracks that appealed to me. Admittedly the second set was more hard core. The band make an incredibly tight sound with the drummer being particularly effective (massively unfair on the others as they were very good also). Vocals on the first two tracks were like a car engine on a cold day then it warmed up and what an amazing voice the lead singer has. The female bassist did a couple of tracks which was a pleasant distraction but the main event was the band in full force with the male lead singer. Ducked out after three tracks of the second set as it did not suit my tastes but that takes nothing away from the quality of this band.

Sorry that the rockier songs were not to your taste, but to be fair, not hard core rock when compared to some other rock cover bands around.
We will be back on February 23rd. Hope to see you again then.
Appreciate the comments on the drummer

Was glad to make the trip from Luton to St Albans to see RedRocket for first time. As I walked into the gig, the band were covering "New Sensation" by Inxs which not enough bands do. The set got better as the night went on, commercial rock covers that were entertaining, mixing old classics with modern tunes. The crowd, including myself, were dancing throughout the set which proves how well the band went down. It was great to hear "The Bartender and the Thief" by The Stereophonics, another great song not played enough.
There was a good sound mix and musicianship in the band. O'Neill's is a big pub and I have seen so many bands there that have not been loud enough, with guitars getting lost in the mix, but not RedRocket. A very clear sound mix, loud enough to fill the venue without been deafening. What I was also impressed with was the band's stage presence. Every tune they played they were enjoying themselves. It would be nice to see band gigging in Luton sometime!

It was good to meet you and put a face to the name.
Thanks for your great review. Sorry that we couldnt talk for longer. If Ric and I were a bit vague on the night, I think it may have been your NE accent that we found very hard to understand :-).
Not sure if we have any contacts in Luton, But always open to new venues.
Hope to see you at a gig in the future.
I saw you at Shoot Pool in Aylesbury last night and was completely blown away by your versatility, polished performance and choice of songs. It was like having all my favourite bands in one place, playing all their best hits. I haven't danced and sung along like that for years! Keep up the great work and please return soon :)
