Denny Rochio


Hailing from the Molise region of Italy (Roccaravindola is the name of his native village), Denny is responsible for "all things guitar" in the Truffle Valley band. When performing on resonator guitar, he proudly carries on the tradition of all-too-often overlooked pioneers of the instrument such as George "Speedy" Krise, Bill Carver, Pete "Oswald" Kirby and Shot Jackson. His style on the instrument is a defining trait of the Truffle Valley Boys' sound. Denny is also one of the very few proponents of the "thumb-and-finger style" and "Carter scratch" rhythm guitar styles worldwide, an extremely authentic touch that allows the band to employ seldom heard timing nuances.
