Nikki & The Rockets LIVE @ 902
February 17 @ 7:00 pm
Come check out locally based Nikki & The Skyrockets
Nikki & the Skyrockets is a small band with a big sound built around the powerful and iconic voice of lead singer Nicole Bozzuto. Coming out of the thriving Jersey City songwriting scene, the band is: Nicole Bozzuto – Voice, guitar & songs; Paul Grossmann – Bass; Sid Whelan – Voice, guitar & songs; Robert Weiss – Drums.
Front-woman Nicole Bozzuto’s songs evoke the feeling of being both in love with and weary from the road. Her lyrics take fans on a bumpy journey through her inner travelogue, highlighting the human spirit in a hopeful but brutally honest manner.
Guitarist Sid Whelan first heard Nicole sing at Hoboken’s late lamented Maxwell’s in 2016 and thought to himself “I have to work with her!” He’s also the second voice and songwriter in the band, with an eclectic style that starts in the blues and ends in airy alternative rock with spacious guitar voicings.
Bassist Paul Grossmann holds down the bottom end with a less-is-more approach and an ear aimed squarely at 60’s R&B and 90’s Rock n Roll. Also influenced by the raw economy of punk, he brings the musical glue that holds all the individual parts together.
The band’s self-produced debut album “Late Last Night” is now available on CD, as well as for streaming and download on Bandcamp; and streaming on SoundCloud. Spotify, Tunecore, Pandora and YouTube are all coming soon.
Currently you’re most likely to catch Nikki & the Skyrockets onstage in North Jersey and New York City.
