The Rocca Brothers are a creative jazz and soul duo that have been playing and creating music together since their early childhood. Since both successfully graduating with degrees in music, they regularly perform across London and the UK with their band featuring Patricia Elizabeth on vocals.
Established on the London jazz circuit, the Rocca Brothers and their band can be found performing weekly across the capital. Recent performances include ‘Jazz After Dark’ in Soho, ‘The Dorchester’ in Mayfair, ‘Shakespeares Globe’ on The Thames and ‘Pizza Express Jazz Club’ in Holborn. They have also joined in at jazz events abroad in the USA and Malayisa. They also host a number of their own events such as jazz and soul jam sessions on weekly basis.
The Rocca Brother’s perform either as a trio, creating a jazzy and soulful mix of vocals, saxophone and piano or as their full band which includes the exciting and driving energy of drums and bass.

Welcome to our first meeting of the Fall term! This week we’ll read a gripping short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment,” about the connection between vanity and renewal. If you liked “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” you’ll appreciate this tale.
After the discussion, we will confer regarding club activities and reading selections for the term. Come ready to discuss your interests and desires!
Led by our new Book Club Coordinator, Heather Harris.
