Who in the heck is Joe Rocha?!?
I’ll tell ya! I’ve been a professional musician and music educator in the Chicagoland area for a number of years. I began my musical training on violin and piano, but expanded my abilities by singing and learning guitar, bass and drums during my high school years. Though I usually perform as a bass guitarist. I also perform as a guitarist and singer. I’ve taught and performed on all the above instruments (and other odds and ends) steadily for over 20 years.
As a musician / performer, I run my own live karaoke band (well over 1000 songs, all makes and models) and gig with several other bands of different genres, performing a wide variety of styles including but not limited to rock, jazz, latin, and praise music.
A few highlights of the bands I’ve performed with will include: The Dustin Parker Band, Voices, Alter Ego, Off The Leash, Posin’ (Poison tribute), BUMP (https://youtu.be/ZsO9L7llHSI), Joe Friday, Planet Groove (aka Ben and the Gentlemen) and my karaoke group Sing With The Band.
Now, ANIMATION a tribute to RUSH!
