The Rocco John Group has been playing together in various incarnations since 1997. They are known for playing free-wheeling standards and original compositions of the band’s leader, Rocco John Iacovone. The Rocco John Group is also the standing musical group for the NYC-based interdisciplinary arts group, the Coalition of Creative Artists, also founded by Rocco John. Rocco often writes complex jazz suites which serve as the basis for COCA’s performance pieces. The group has many incarnations, from duo to quintet.

“I think the price for what you get is good bang for the buck. Mostly, I like that it’s clean, and that the equipment’s here.” – Rocco John
