The Roddenberries : Album Release
The Roddenberries are the galaxy’s premiere Star Trekkified multi-media sci-fi rock cabaret, melded in Philadelphia in 2012 from a passionate love of Sci-Fi & Fantasy (and especially Star Trek) - and boldly go where no Star Band has gone before. This fun, energetic 9-piece troupe of professional musicians, cabaret performers, film makers, dancers and educators is truly a unique spectacle to behold, and entertains both geeks and muggles alike.
“Masters of musical mirth,” (Geekadelphia), their versatile shows span the realms of Star Trek, Star Wars, science fiction, fantasy, gaming, Dr. Who, Marvel and DC in an effort to unite and entertain fans throughout the Nerd-o-Sphere. From artful recreations of original movie and tv scores, to pop/rock/classics parodies - from Queen to The Jackson 5, Prince to Tom Jones, The Who to Monster Magnet, and beyond. So much more than a Star Trek band, The Roddenberries are a unique culmination of rock-n-roll theater, comedy, and pure sci-fi awesomeness.
The band has performed at multiple venues and events around the country. For the 50th anniversary of Star Trek In 2016, they performed on both the Roddenberry Stage at the Star Trek Las Vegas Official 50 Year Anniversary Convention, and on Philadelphia Fox 29 Live tv in celebration of the milestone. They’ve also performed at The Franklin Institute’s Fels Planetarium for the Philadelphia Science Festival, the Penn Museum, New York Comic Con, Keystone Comic Con, and the Philadelphia Wizard World/Comic Con, where they opened for George Takei's documentary 'To Be Takei’.
After a one-year mission working with Grammy award-winning producer Joe "The Butcher" Nicolo, The Roddenberries have just finished production of their explosive second album - "Eat The Roddenberries," featuring bold new Trekkified parodies that will tickle your inner nerd with thoughtful lyrics, infectious melodies, and something for everyone.
Join them for their Eat The Roddenberries Album Release Party along with very special guest J.G. Hertzler (and other surprise friends), for an interstellar evening you’ll never forget!

"The Roddenberries are a great musical group. We had them perform for us for the 50th Anniversary. They did take our name, but you know, I think they actually brought it up a level - not with just the music they do, and not just the performance they have, but the integrity that the group has. They have fun with it, they are genuine, and they really know how to bring a house down. I love those guys - check them out!” - Rod Roddenberry; son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, CEO of Roddenberry Entertainment and Executive Producer of Star Trek: Discovery.
“Without reservation the most talented, unique and glory-bound band I have ever experienced. I am a fan forever.” - JG Hertzler; ST: DS9's Chancellor Martok
