Guests of the venue joined in to sing “Happy Birthday” to the one and only Lou Pallo, who had celebrated his 84th birthday at the event. The president of the Les Paul Foundation, Michael Braunstein, even stated that he had “not seen Lou smile that big in years.” Lou was floored by the students’ talents and stage presence.
Special guests Steve Miller, Susan & Eddie Brigati, and Johnny Farina all made an appearance to make this unique event even more memorable. The Rockit students were fully aware and appreciative to have the privilege to share the stage with these world-class musicians. “This is a superb opportunity for our students to learn directly from and perform with world-class musicians, and for this we are grateful”, said Bruce Gallipani, Rockit’s Founder and Executive Director. Proceeds from the concert benefit the Rockit Live Foundation’s Scholarship Fund.
