...perhaps the best all-around drummer in the Bay Area, with a résumé that includes road duty with Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin.
Lee Hildebrand
Reviewer for the Bay Guardian, Living Blues Magazine, S.F. Chronicle, and a drummer himself!

Dave Rokeach... powered the group with style and authority.
Jazz Now, March 1996

For most of the gig the drummer was Dave Rokeach, but Louie Bellson played for about three numbers and traded fours with Rokeach in one of the high points of the first afternoon.
