A Tribute to Lou Pallo

A Tribute to Lou PalloThe Rockit Live Foundation is honored to pay tribute to an extraordinary person and talent, Lou Pallo. On Sunday, October 2, 2022, The Cutting Room NYC will host a heartfelt performance by the Rockit Academy with special guests in remembrance of our dear friend.

As an incredibly accomplished guitarist, Lou Pallo accompanied Les Paul for decades, recording and performing with countless world-renowned musicians. Keith Richards described Lou as, “The Man of a Million Chords.”

A humble man who loved to see others shine, Lou mentored many young musicians, some of whom became consistent players at his shows in New Jersey. In the years just before Lou’s passing, the students of the Rockit Academy were fortunate to collaborate with him in numerous workshops and performances.

It is with great pride that the Rockit Live Foundation pays tribute to our mentor and friend, Lou Pallo.
