On Friday, January 18, the Soper Reese Theatre Third Friday Live series features Bill Noteman and the Rockets, with show starting at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $15 for all seats.
In 1983 Bill Noteman, Larry Platz, David Neft and Dave Falco got together for an impromptu jam in an old movie theater in Lower Lake, California. What emerged that night was Bill Noteman and the Rockets, a band that soon took over Lake, Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino counties with a unique high energy blend of Chicago blues and rock and roll known as West Coast Jump. Today Bill Noteman, harmonica virtuoso and entertaining front man, is skillfully supported by original members and local legends "Mojo" Larry Platz on guitar, David “Rockin 88’s" Neft on keyboards, and bassist Dave "Fingers” Falco, along with drummer Steve "The Shuffler" DuBois.
One critic recently described the group in this way: "Raw expressive vocals, searing harmonica, sizzling guitar, and cooking keys dipped in the sauce of a smoldering rhythm section. This is the original music and feeling of Bill Noteman and the Rockets."
