Originally ROCKER began its musical career in 1978 as a Fort Myers based guitar driven hard rockin’ band. They had some shining moments along the way as they were offered a record contract with a major label and opened shows for acts such as Alice Cooper, Billy Squire and many others. However, life goes on. They started families and got day jobs that turned into careers. Eventually the group disbanded and they went about their lives, but always stayed in touch with each other.
~~ It is unclear as to exactly who made the “hey let’s get the band back together” call or when, but since then they have been rockin’ Southwest Florida venues again with a vengeance. Seasoned musicians John Abby on guitar, Shelly Lucas on lead vocals, Bob Adams on keys and vocals, Steve Gosciniak on drums, Pete Eckenrode on bass guitar and vocals, and Dan Billmeyer running production sound and lights are kicking out the jams from then to now with the best blend of classic and new rock.
