Local acts help launch Rupert Rocks! CD

During the evening of December 10, Garden Records and a full house of people at The Underground celebrated the release of Rupert Rocks!

During the evening of Saturday, December 10, Garden Records and a full house of people at The Underground celebrated the release of Rupert Rocks!, the local record label’s second all-local musician compilation album.

“The release party exceeded my expectations,” said Tom Lehar from Garden Records and the Summit Sound Lounge Recording Studio.

“The bands did a fabulous job performing.”

At the release party eight of the 11 artists and bands featured on the newly released CD performed their original pieces from the album to a large crowd of music-lovers at The Underground. Men Who Listen started off the performances with “Prince Rumour”, the groups’ original song that can be heard on the album. The solo artists then pumped up the audience, with Lance Clark performing “Rockin’ Into Rupert Town” and Aaron Viktil singing “End of the Rainbow”. More bands performed next, such as trio Latex Nightmare, who performed their song “Casino” and Triple Bypass, who played “Feels Like Home” the only track featured on the album that was not recorded in the Summit Sound Lounge Recording Studio. The Grifters performed their original “Not Adapting Well”, before Kate Lines from Garden Records’ and Summit Sound Lounge performed her solo song “This Small Town”. Lehar’s band Ring System wrapped up the Rupert Rocks! song performances with “Tan Lines”, before both The Grifters and Latex Nightmare returned on stage to perform more of their original tunes.

More information on each group and solo artist and photos can be found at under the Rupert Rocks! section of the website.  Download cards for Rupert Rocks! are available for purchase at Teddy’s and Rainforest
