Dubbed "the hardest working man" by some, Mike Rocket is different from many artists in his relentless, fearless, self promoting, and outside the box tactics. Rocket often sets up and performs in places like Times Square, in concert parking lots, at network television shows like the TODAY Show, and by the entrances of large festivals in order to expose his music to the masses. To date he has been seen/heard on national television as well as on major New York, New Jersey, & Philadelphia radio stations.
After four years of setting up outside, Mike was invited to be an official performer at Firefly Music Festival 2016 with some of music's biggest acts. He also has performed at other well known festivals to date including SXSW, CMJ, and Light of Day. His most recognizable song is "Gotta Get To The Jersey Shore" (co-written by Victor Cornette) which he performed live to kick off the Shannon in the Morning WCBS-FM Summer Blastoff 2016 to open for Bret Michaels. In the past several months, Rocket has released a new album and was one of the leaders in likes in the Bon Jovi opening act contest. In 2018, he is scheduled to play a young Bruce Springsteen in a major motion picture. More info can be found on his site: www.MikeRocket.com (photo by Mitchell Bilus)
