20th Anniversary Show - 7PM-1AM
10 West Chicago Ave,
Naperville, IL 60566
630-416-4898 [map]
Price: $7

It was 20 years ago, December 31st, 1996, that the Rhythm Rockets performed in public for the very first time. We were on the bill for New Years Eve at Frankie's Blue Room in Naperville, IL during the height of the "Swing Resurrgance" of the late 90's. What an exciting time to be in a band!

That night, we were 1 of 3 bands performing. The first band to hit the stage was Bopology, a Sinatra/Rat Pack style group who also just hit the Chicago scene. Then the Rhythm Rockets took the stage for the midnight hour. Last on the bill, was the house band that was put together by the owner of Frankie's, they were called the Big Swing!

The Big Swing comprised of many of Chicago's top players, former members of the Mighty Blue Kings, Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials, DC's Uptown Rhythm Kings and more. 

One thing I never ever considered when putting together the Rhythm Rockets was the dancers. it wasn't until our very first few shows did I realize the popularity of Swing dancing...and vintage attire...and martinis...it was a fabulous time to be a musician!

So this will be our 20th anniversary show! Hosted at the place that started it all for us. We haven't performed at Frankie's for over 10 years now...it will be good to come back to the joint upstairs, to Jump & Jive and dance the night away like the old days.
