414 Live with Rocket Cat

Since its spring 2016 formation in Milwaukee, Rocket Cat’s veteran musicians have been driven by a desire to create well-crafted, detail-oriented original songs that will stick with you long after the first listen. With roots in alternative, progressive and hard rock (and a good bit of power-pop), Rocket Cat is focused on the high energy interplay of melody between all instruments and voice that supports meaningful and personal lyrics.

The band consists of Christopher Guse (guitar), Dave Maurer (bass), Justine Trudeaux (vocals), and Steve Vorass, Jr. (drums) who draw heavily upon the musical influences of their younger selves from the late 80s and early 90s, such as Pearl Jam, Rush, U2, Natalie Merchant and Throwing Muses.
