Mike Rocket w/ Rachael Sage & The Sequins, Sylvana Joyce & The Moment, Phil Robinson at the Loft - 3/5
at The Loft at City Winery
Tickets will be $25 Day of Show
Mike Rocket returns to the Loft after his recent release of "Princess Of New Jersey" produced by Thomas Hutchings.
Credited as "the hardest working man" by some, Rocket is different from many artists in his relentless, fearless, self promoting, and outside the box tactics. Rocket often sets up and performs in places like Times Square, in concert parking lots, at network television shows like the TODAY Show, and by the entrances of large festivals in order to expose his music to the masses. To date he has been seen/heard on national television as well as on major New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia radio stations, including over 30 visits to the TODAY Show.
After four years of setting up outside, Mike Rocket became an official act at Firefly Music Festival 2016 with some of music's biggest acts. Other well known festivals he has officially played include SXSW, CMJ, and Light of Day. His most recognizable song is "Gotta Get To The Jersey Shore" which he performed live to kick off the Shannon in the Morning WCBS-FM Summer Blastoff 2016 to open for Bret Michaels.
Over the past year, Rocket returned to the legendary B.B. King Blues Club for his 9th and 10th performances there. In the near future, he is expected portray a legendary rock star in a movie.

Rachael Sage & The Sequins (7:30pm) www.rachaelsage.com
Rachael Sage is a singer/songwriter, poet and visual artist who BLURT MAGAZINE describes as “the Carole King of her generation”. Since founding her own label MPress Records at the dawn of her career, Sage has steadily released a slew of vibrant, dynamic albums with poetic, image-rich lyrics, earning a loyal international following for her sophisticated musicianship, soulful vocals and improvisational audience interaction. Sage has shared stages with Beth Hart, Howard Jones, Judy Collins, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, Jamie Cullum, and Ani DiFranco. Her latest full-length album, "Myopia", is a bold departure with a much stronger emphasis on her guitar playing over her signature piano palette.
Featuring her longtime band The Sequins: violinist Kelly Halloran (Michael Franti), cellist Ward Williams (Sara Bareilles) and percussionist Andy Mac (Deni Bonet). For more information, visit rachaelsage.com.
Sylvana Joyce and the Moment (9:15pm) www.sjandthemoment.com
Sylvana Joyce has been hypnotizing audiences along the Northeast with her drama rock – one would not expect such a grand human carnival to emanate from her petite Eastern-European exterior – that is, until the house lights dim. Sylvana’s persona, a Greta Garbo meets Alice Cooper circus leader of epic proportions, gallivants and taunts the audience with her cheeky, grandiose, and expertly divined performances of her original music. Influenced by everything from Rachmaninoff to film noir, her brand of rock touches on many genres, having equally delighted audiences for soul songstress Nikka Costa, internationally touring rock-jazz trio The Aristocrats, and funk-dance Moon Hooch. Sylvana’s palpable talent has also garnered major press from the likes of Huffington Post, MTV, CNN and Time Out New York, as well as an inclusion in the NBC TV show, the Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase. Heavyhead (2017),Joyce’s sophomore LP, has been called “on the podium of greatness” by rock journal The Aquarian Weekly, and that Joyce “has struck original gold”.
Phil Robinson (7pm)
Soulful singer/songwriter with questing lyrics and soaring harmonica! Stunning good looks, a quick wit, and trademark self-deprecating humor. If Bruce Springsteen, Cat Stevens and mythologist Joseph Campbell all had a baby together, Phil would be that baby, with one foot solidly planted in NY and the other somewhere in the astral plane. Can you tell he's written WAY too many of these bios!?!
