A few musings about the “Opera House and Concert Hall to Broadway… The composers and lyricists who did it all!” Seems as though with each show there is a story behind the scenes. I look at these photos taken by Bob Gibson and remember how tired I was at the time of this performance at the Artist’s Showcase at the Siletz Bay Music Festival. I opened this concert for legendary American jazz pianist, Dick Hyman. With a career spanning over a 50...Read More

After SO many years, I finally had the opportunity to see you perform live. And what a fun show it was! Rocky, when you spoke of the memory work and harmonies involved in the Sinatra show I had no idea. Wow! You weren’t kidding! It was such a treat, an ear-tickling joy to hear the complexity of the arrangements and the absolutely stunning 4-part voicing. Every note hit with precision. So much so that several times during the performance I caught myself grinning from ear to ear in sheer delight a…

Super! LOVE the narrative arc. Excellently crafted. Fabulous trio and vocal quartet – you guys are nailing those complex harmonies and it is a pleasure to the ear! I especially like how the chemistry between the four of you is developing through the show. You’re in great voice and those dance moves work well!!
Rebecca Schumacher - Sotheby’s International Realty
We are still smiling about the truly wonderful, talented show yesterday. Rocky, you are our rock star!! We enjoyed every moment of it – your solo talent, the arrangements, the harmonies.
Nelson B. Schiller, MD - Cardiologist, UCSF
Your singing was sensational. We loved the swinging arrangements and the way you crafted the medleys. Your acting was terrific. I love your Cole Porter CD. Have played it dozens of times crossing the Golden Gate bridge from home to the UCSF Mission Bay campus!
Mary Bettini - Director/Choreographer, New York
There is nothing more fun than a revue of well known music when it hits the mark! Rocky… a pro with such great energy who needs no roadmap around this material, knows his way around a song and can still “dish the dirt” with the rest of the company. Thank you for such a delightful, memorable evening – ol’ blue eyes would tip his fedora to you for this awesome salute to his songbook!
Tom Blank - Professor of Theatre and Film - Ohlone College, Fullerton College
The show was just terrific, and you were constantly a highlight. Great voice, presence, and styling. And boy can you find your light!!!! Hard to isolate stand-out moments as the whole piece sizzled. Your “I’ll Be Seeing You” brought new depth to a familiar standard. I also enjoyed your casual but infectious interaction with the other singers – bringing such a variety of experiences to the material.
Tom Blank - Former Theatre Critic Anaheim Bulletin
“One for My Baby”, was absolutely A+ ~ Your intimate story-telling and using your pianist as the bartender was inspired. It turned a routine standard into a contemporary reflection on loss.
Christine & Jeff
Yesterday’s performance was simply stunning, enjoyable, heart-warming and lovely. Jeff and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves… Charlie Creasy’s arrangements are brilliant. The Irving Berlin Songbook contains some real memorable, beautiful pieces. Thanks for stirring our hearts with the group sing-along of God Bless America. I do hope you all get to perform this again. I know this was quite the undertaking for you along with production. My personal thank-you and big hugs for a beautiful, memorabl…
Chuck Feist - Executive Director, Siletz Bay Music Festival
Rocky, THANK YOU. What a show! One donor while handing me a check said, “My wife and I would spend $400.00 in New York for a show like this, please keep bringing us this quality entertainment and we will continue supporting Siletz Bay Music Festival.” The details, the precision, the vocals, the floor show, the entertainers. WOW. THANK YOU.
Denis Moreen - Pianist, Music Director
“… it was stunning, my friend! You did Cole real justice. Your up-tempos bounced and your ballads flowed. I particularly liked the introspective slower motions of several songs – nothing unhurried, everything thoughtful. I also was taken with your immediate and easy rapport with the audience. Most important, the audience was given complete honesty both in your singing and in your talking…”
