SE Bayles - San Jose, CA 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… Read more

Susan I have tried yoga before, but I never stayed with the practice. Then I met Rocky. Enthusiasm, encouragement and kindness radiate from him. He patiently explains new postures, unfamiliar words and accommodations for injuries. After six months of Rocky’s kriyas, I move in ways that surprise me, I have increased stamina, I breathe more deeply and I leave class refreshed and relaxed.
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.

Mireya Vargas - Stanford Fellow DCI 2019 The kundalini yoga I learned with Rocky has been a source of connection with my psychic life, my well-being and a learning about my own body, mind and spirit. It has been a real exercise in discipline and flexibility, learning different ways of breath, kriyas, chants, postures, and movements which have accompanied me on this journey. Rocky knows how to be unique for each participant and has been humble, wise and patient to keep us all in harmony working with this inner connection. Thanks, Rocky,… Read more

Nicole S I have attended live in-person, live virtual, and pre-recorded Kundalini sessions with Rocky. I like Kundalini because of the opportunity to explore and challenge myself in a unique way. Rocky is a warm, welcoming, humble and intuitive teacher. There’s a reason this hour and a half experience is a part of my regular practice!
Elaine Wang Meyerhoffer - Independent Music Professional 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!!

Franki Keefe Wow! Your CD is on my computer, car stereo, home stereo, and iPod and all I can say is “Wow!” All those years ago when I first heard you sing, I thought you couldn’t be better. I was wrong. Your range, energy, and emotion, together with Ron’s fabulous arrangements, combine to create a collection that could top any chart. You ARE the BEST!
Rachel Kayhan It’s “easy to love” this CD! Blumhagen renders these classic tunes with tenderness and contemporary sass. Listen to it in the car: you’ll feel the luscious arrangements wrap around you like a mink stole, and go to straight to your head like a martini without the alcohol!
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.

Rod Tallman A kundalini yoga practice led by Rocky is the best way to start the day and live the day in buoyant positivity, especially in these challenging times. It is a life changer. I consider my yoga practice with Rocky as a gift of wellbeing that I am so fortunate to be able to give to myself.
