Rocket Paloma plays PrideFest Milwaukee June 7

Sunday, June 7: Rocket Paloma


Rocket Paloma plays the Wom!nz Spot Cafe Sunday, June 7 at 6:00 P.M.

Rocket Paloma is comprised of four core members, Joanna Kerner, Jon Blohm, Bob Schaab and Jack Beyler. Kerner is a local singer-songwriter and theater artist. She has contributed to many local theatrical productions as a songwriter or musician/actor.

Kerner calls the music she writes for Rocket Paloma “story songs”, as every song tells a specific story and therefore takes on a different and unique feel. Her writing is influenced by many genres, including, folk, rock ’n’ roll, punk, jazz and indie.

In order to capture each unique tale, Kerner has joined forces with musicians from a variety of backgrounds. John Blohm comes from a metal rock background, and contributes smooth, driving bass lines to all of Rocket Paloma’s songs. Blohm has previously performed in the band, Tastes Like Red. He also currently runs the soundboard for the growing Milwaukee music factio, Sofar Sounds, which can be found on YouTube. On the drums, Bob Schaab crafts exciting and creative drum beats, and each tune is sure to get everyone’s toe’s tapping. Schaab lends his dynamic drum skills to many bands, including The Directionals, Vedic Eden and The Sugar Stems, and Rocket Paloma is lucky to have him! Jack Beyler plays lead guitar and hails from a classical background and also plays in Bo Triplex, a funk soul band. His creative and imaginative riffs round out all the songs, resulting in an assault on the senses that is philosophical, sassy and peppered with profanity.

Rocket Paloma packs a musical punch that will send you right out of this world!

Fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride!
