Del Rockford at Raccoon Motel

Pop songster Del Rockford and longtime producer Jerry Ass have been producing pop songs for a long time. They said it couldn’t be done– and they were right. Following a disastrous set at Cornerstone 2008, Del and Jerry found themselves banned from music… until now!
With infectious earworms like “(Deep Sea) Double Date,” “Fazoli’s Girl,” and “The Cave of Dr. Dracula,” it may seem that Del and Jerry’s music is standard pop fare for the masses. But look beneath the surface and one will find the sensitive mind of a poet (Del) and the delicate fingers of a synth wizard (Jerry).
Del and Jerry’s music is inescapably hooky, but those who get caught by their tunes rarely wish to be released. May Del Rockford have mercy on us all.
