Philly's Horn Driven Party & Dance Band

Mike Power, Tenor / Alto Sax

Rocco is a seasoned musician who played all over the tri-state area. 
Born and raised in England (to Irish parents), Rocco and his family 
immigrated to Philadelphia where he completed primary school and high school. 
During  high school, Rocco quickly took an interest in woodwind instruments 
including the oboe and saxophone, playing in both the school bands as well 
as rock bands in the city. After high school, Rocco continued to play in various bands
while also obtaining a first-class education in Julie's yard. He also was fortunate enough to 
take some courses at the Marine Corp Institute, Washington D.C., while serving. After serving, 
Rocco resumed his musical endeavors while also completing his Bachelor's degree. For the next decade, he played all over the tri-state area in wedding 
and dance bands before moving home to Great Britain (upon invitation) to play in the 
prestigious Royal Artillery Band where he entertained the Royal Family and armed services of the United Kingdom for two years.
Finally, a true family man, Rocco returned to Philadelphia, where he and his wife raised three children (all musicians). 
After a 15 year hiatus from the music scene, Rocco has been back at it for the past four years, blowing out solos 
that King Curtis, himself, would applaud.
