Rest in Groove

updates, ramblings & ruminations

Rocco Prestia, who inspired generations of bass players with his unique playing style and funky pocket, passed away on September 29th.
Rocco had a strong Hawaii-connection. I got to meet him once and had the honor to share the stage with him and play some Tower of Power classics. He was a sweet and humble soul, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to share music with him.

Rest in groove, Francis Rocco Prestia Jr.

Oahu, 2018
