 Based on some sage advice I received from a very close family friend, I decided to study computer science in college instead of studying music (I was passionate about playing both guitar and piano). Computer science was going to be my career, and music was going to be my hobby. I’m guessing that many of our Rocketeers made that same decision somewhere along the way. If you walk through our Rocket offices, you’ll find talented Rocketeers who are at the top of their profession, thought leaders, and domain experts. You’ll also find that they are accomplished guitarists, pianists, drummers, vocalists, and many more.

Each December I host a one-week summit meeting in Boston for our Rocket leaders. My wife, Mariann, and I invite the team to our house for an evening of great food, casual conversation, connections, and collaboration. At some point during the evening, a group of Rocket leaders inevitably ends up in my basement music studio. This is where “The Rocket Band” organically formed a few years ago. Paul Johnson and Gary Mumford grabbed guitars. Rich Berman played bass. Amedee Potier and Joe Devlin played keyboards. And my son Michael jumped on his kit and kept us in time throughout the night. Various incarnations of TRB have played at internal Rocket events in Bermuda, Las Vegas, and Boston.
