Rocky Peoples was the saxophonist heard on hit recordings such as “Will We Go Round In Circles” and “Nothing From Nothing” by Billy Preston, as well as his own composition “Driver’s License.” Rocky has also worked with Ray Charles, James Brown, Pat Boone, and Stevie Wonder. Rocky’s passion for music was inspired by his father, a gospel singer and his uncle, who played the saxophone. He later acquired a Selmer Mark VI and taught himself to read music. When he moved to Las Vegas, Rocky became a member of the Vegas Swing Quartet And Friends, which often performed at private parties and local showrooms. Rocky was also a chef and enjoyed talking about food as much as music!
