In just two years the Racket have exploded onto the Canadian music scene. They have rapidly gone from their working class roots in Hamilton to playing for capacity crowds at some of rock’s most historic landmarks.

The Racket are singer, songwriter and guitarist Mike Veerman; his brother Greg Veerman on bass; and Ted Paterson on drums.

Together the Racket have won or been finalists in several national and international music competitions. In the summer of 2004 the group’s song “The Beach” was featured on the website for Fox's "The O.C.". Most recently “The Beach” received airplay on Edge 102, Canada's hugely popular alt-rock station. The Racket have also been popping up on college radio all over Ontario and in Boston, New York, San Francisco and Austin.

With a tight, aggressive -- yet accessible rock sound, intelligent lyrics, countless unforgettable original songs and an ever-growing fan base, the Racket’s impending fame and success are undeniable.
