Rocrament

   Posted by: Jay Lee    in Calendar, General

Something many of our fans may not know is that the song “Loch Ness Monster” was originally written and recorded as a heavy metal song. Greg Henkel came up with a band called Rocrament and wrote about 10-12 songs for this band and his brother, Jim Henkel, recorded them. Jim laid down all the tracks and mixed it in his home studio.

The heavy metal version of Loch Ness Monster is a bonus hidden track on the Flying Fish Sailors CD of the same name.

Recently, Greg has been working hard with a hand-picked group of musicians to bring Rocrament to the stage and his evil brilliant plan comes to fruition this Thursday night, June 21st at the Houston Continental Club.

Show time is around 10:30 and follows the regular Thursday night performance of Jim Henkel’s Beatles tribute band “Beetle.”

Only Greg knows for sure what this performance will entail, but early reports are of elaborate stage props and costumes. Greg let me know that Rocrament has about 45 minutes of live material so this will not be an all night affair. This is going to be a rock show for the ages!
