Friday, June 8: Rocket Paloma

Rocket Paloma plays Friday, June 8 on the Milwaukee Record Stage.

Rocket Paloma is a progressive rock outfit with a heavy folk foundation based out of Milwaukee. Their music blends imaginative leads atop a forceful and driving rhythm section with soaring vocals & crafted storytelling.

The band is comprised of four core members: Joey Kerner, Jonathan Blohm, Bob Schaab and Jack Beyler. Shortly after they formed in 2015, they quickly garnered attention, performing a handful of bigger shows and festivals: playing with acclaimed national touring act Little Tybee at Cactus Club, Locust Street Festival, Brady Street Festival, PrideFest Milwaukee, Milwaukee’s inaugural Fringe Fest, and performing a headlining set at Bay View’s Chill on the Hill.

The band saw 2017 as their busiest year, starting with the anticipated release of their debut EP in early Spring. It was met with praise by some of Milwaukee’s bigger publications and radio stations, including a nomination for best album by 88Nine Radio Milwaukee Music Awards and featured in Milwaukee Records “10 Standout Milwaukee EPs of 2017.”

They have since hit the ground running in 2018, playing a handful of shows in Milwaukee, recorded their upcoming full-length record at Howl Street Recordings (expecting to be released towards the end of summer), released their stand-alone single “Say Your Prayers,” and went on a short tour in April.

With each member coming from different backgrounds ranging from classical to jazz and metal to funk, ROCKET PALOMA melds their stylistic differences into a truly unique, genre-bending experience.
