Rocky Bentley

Rocky Bentley

Acoustic, Alternative, Americana, Blues


 
Born in Detroit, Motown artists like Stevie Wonder, and The Jackson Five were huge influences on this young kid. Later, homegrown Rock and Roll heroes like Iggy & The Stooges, The MC5, Bob Seger, Alice Cooper and Ted Nugent were to be shapers of Rocky’s musical direction.
As front-man for Tampa Bay metal legends, Visigoth (a.k.a. Charade, Mr. Slate), Rocky gained a reputation as a solid performer and song-writer. During the height of the Tampa metal scene, the band found themselves playing shows with Savatage, Nasty Savage, Morbid Angel and Suicidal Tendencies to name a few.
As the visionary behind his original alt-rock band, Rockstarr Bentley, Rocky has shared stages with bands like Saliva, Anvil, members of Savatge and Guns N Roses. Rock has jammed with Blues greats, Bo Diddley, B.B. King and Willie Dixon and has written hundreds of songs. Don't miss this one of a kind performer!
