Sup With This Dude Yo

     Dez Rocket is a lead vocalist and songwriting multi-instrumentalist from St.Louis, Missouri, US.                                           As a youngster he excelled in athletics and received a scholarship to play football at Central Methodist University where he played and studied for 2 years. This is where he formed his first band before dropping out of college to pursue a career in music. After a brief time in Florida as the lead singer of his 2nd band, Dezert (whose birth name is David Edward Laschke) was offered the opportunity to film his first ever music video in St. Louis for an original song he recorded called “Don’t Fight About It”. When the filming for the video was complete Dez' popularity began to take off, but it was also at this time he found himself penniless and desperate to make a living at what he loved. So, he started playing in cover bands full time and began touring a large swath of North America as a lead vocalist, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist. He eventually found his way to Los Angeles where he played the local circuit for several months before quitting cover bands entirely to focus solely on original projects and would call LA home for the next 17 years.

     During his time in LA, Dez was a member of 3 bands, most notably his original altrock punk band Chongo Guru (album available here and at ) playing most of their shows in and around Los Angeles to a local cult following. He was involved on major productions in music, television and film, was a model for Vanity International and recorded many original songs helping to propel and develop his own style. Dezert has performed songs on stage with Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, members of Blue Oyster Cult and Pavlov’s Dog, has been on-set with several A-listers and worked backline production for many heavy hitters in the music biz. 

    He would eventually move back to St. Louis and assemble a production studio where he recorded his first solo album entitled "Boo Shaboo" but it was never officially released. Then in 2014 he began releasing his first singles as a solo artist/producer and filmed two music videos in Los Angeles before returning again in 2018 to record his self titled album “Dezert Rocket”. The album was released October 8, 2021 and received robust airplay on FM radio stations across The United States and Canada with many markets seeing an increase in rotation well after the release date. He also appeared in numerous interviews and blogs across the globe. In June of 2022 Dez released an album of previously recorded tracks called Boo Shaboo II which included 4 previously unreleased tracks. And here we are in 2024 and the new album "I Win" is on its way and set for release later this year!

      It is important to note that Dezert began studying spiritual alchemy in 1995 with his first teacher, a Dakota elder, in the Central Valley of California on sovereign indigenous land. In the summer of 2023 he was granted his graduation Eagle feather from Great Spirit, known by the Sioux nation Dakota peoples as Tan'kash'ila Grandfather. The next phase of his mission has begun.
