About Empire Rocket Machine:
ERM is a Portland, Oregon rock band. We draw from diverse rock and pop influences and a genuine enjoyment of playing music together. Jon and Kenny met at a bar in NE Portland. They began playing together to support Kenny’s benefit concert “Rock Against Alzheimer’s” (RAA) in 2008. Piotr and Kevin were included the following summer to support playing RAA again. Quickly a tight set list developed and ERM took off playing shows at RAA in July, 2009 at BC’s followed by Roscoe’s Pub weeks later.

They have more recently played sets at Tonic Lounge, Dante’s and Kelly’s Olympian Knife Shop, The Agenda, the Red Room, and at the Someday Lounge (streamed live in HD and archived on www.stagedive.com thanks to the generous work of Jesse Gay), as well as acoustic sets at Slim’s Cocktail Lounge and Bar Bar Patio. ERM is available for club gigs, charitable events, festivals, parties and other live music venues in the Portland area.
