There's just not enough room here to list all the great musicians and musical groups that I've been fortunate enough to play with. Moreover, I don't think that's really necessary. I'm confident that these names will demonstrate the various styles and quality of music that I have been playing.

If, however, you would like to know some of the talented musicians who have performed with my jazz ensemble over the years, please go to the Dave Rocha Jazz Group page. There's also some good sounds to check out on the Audio Samples page.
