The Gotham Rockets are a rock’n’roll band. A band in the simplest form - brothers bonded not by blood but by the rhythm. The kind of band whose record is played to get the party started!
"I love Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, and therefore I love The Gotham Rockets." - Mass Movement Magazine
"Oh Yeah man how cool is it to hear a bunch of tunes dripping with sleazy Lowe East Side grease and dirt all over their horn honkin’ low slung rock and roll." - RPM Online
"A good old rock ‘n’ roll injection." - Real Gone
"“Blast Off” contains four songs that basically distil everything that is ace about rock n roll to the absolute bare bones."
- Maximum Volume Music
Pulling their strength from the souls of rock’n’roll’s past, they bring that American Beat. The sonic drive that makes you want to dance and shout! These four rock’n’roll brothers hail from New York City and are all super sharp musicians who effortlessly pick up the grit and have the smoke. The Gotham Rockets have delivered a debut release raging with garage rock, sleaze, glam, R&B, soul, echoing NYC street corner Doo Wop & Girl Group sounds.
Matt Langone (guitar/vocals), Mighty Joe Vincent (drums), Scott Kitchen (bass),& Steve Greenfield (keyboards/sax) have honed their skills in the past as members of The Devil Dogs, The Fleshtones, Jack Black, The Prissteens, Simon & The Bar Sinisters, The Swingin' Neckbreakers, The Trash Mavericks, and The Waldos.
You can count on The Gotham Rockets to always bring the shake, stomp, & shimmy to the stage. Let them take you there!

Rum Bar Records is turning into one of the absolute best labels for real rock and roll these days, if you haven't gotten hip to that trip. It's the boss sound from the Boss-town." - Bill Kelly, Bill Kelly's Teenage Wasteland WFMU
