The Rocketeers

Based: Johannesburg

Every once in a while a music act comes along that is truly unique  and refreshing in the product that it delivers – The  acoustic duo Rocketeers is one such act and has become synonymous with exellence in easy listening and background acoustic music since forming in 2010.

It’s the unusual but highly effective marriage of acoustic guitar,  upright double bass,  silky smooth vocals and “made on the fly”percussion loops that as well as being  visually interesting, creates the Rocketeers sound which can be  described as classy, relaxing and unobtrusive yet still lively and upbeat with a general “foot tapping” vibe.
