The Rockets Back to Rocket the City

WINDHOEK- Not all roads seem to be leading to the Coast this weekend for the awards ceremony of the Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAS).

Not with one of the all time South African live bands, The Rockets, in town and bidding like old time to woo Namibians. The band feature at the Palm Tree Park in the city tomorrow. According to the Managing Director of Global Entertainment, Do-Do Jerome Snyders, the band promises the May-Day long weekend explosion and excitement with a mixture of old schools and new schools songs. Snyders is inviting music lovers to go and experience one of the amusing moments from the band for the second time ever in Namibia these years after. “They should bring along their camping chairs and enjoy the night,” he entices. But the band is not only stopping in the City but hopes to elevate the hype at the Coast when it performs there on Sunday. The Rockets success story is one of determination, hard work and dedication. The Rockets have always had a definite and precise attitude to their career right from its inception, having survived both the feverishness and fluctuations of the music business. Over the past ten years, The Rockets have spent more than six months of each year performing outside South Africa. International trips have included numerous performances in Australia, various countries in the Middle East, The Seychelles and other parts of Africa, including Namibia. Some of the song to be performed by the band include Gimme A Break, Surrender, Pappa Please Come Back Home, Thank You Thank You, Back II The Hits, Dreaming of You and African People. Snyders adds that the band have always backed up their accomplishments before hundreds of thousands of fans throughout the world. “They have a stunning visual appeal, their playing is top notch and their songs are fresh and fulfilling. They continue to set international stages alight with their colourful, uncompromising and energetic performances,” he says.

Tickets are available at Computickets worldwide at the cost of N$ 120. Doors open at half past six for both events. Caption: The Cape Town-based Rockets that will be performing at Palm Tree Park in the city centre in Windhoek on Saturday and in the Walvis Bay Town Hall on Sunday.
