the racket


A poptacular mix of rock and new wave. Its like the clash, weezer, foo fighters, gloria estefan, and wham! Its like sugar in your ears.


They are The Racket. They come from Hamilton. They recently went on tour across Canada where bass player Greg Veerman killed a moose with his bare hands.

After moderate success with a 4 song EPK including their song, “The Beach” being featured on The OC website (the FOX television hit series) The Racket went into the studio with an abundance of eclectic pop rock songs vibrating with a mix of catchy melodies and mega hooks. This amalgamation of songs became their first full length album.
After completion, The Racket pushed the new album gigging relentlessly throughout southern Ontario. The hard work paid off when The Racket spent 3 weeks at number one on Various College and University Radio stations in Ontario. The next step for this independent band was an extended Tour.
Showing massive drive and ambition, The Racket independently booked a tour with the aid of MySpace and other avenues to promote their new album. The cross country tour successfully broke even for the little band that could and The Racket built an army of fans all across Canada. With a tour of Eastern Canada booked for April, the Racket show no signs of slowing down!
