This Weekend's Good Deed: Rising Songwriter Rocco DeLuca at "White Light White Night" Fundraiser
"Rocco DeLuca will be headlining this Saturday's summer party, White Light White Night. It's the big annual fundraising event for Walk With Sally, a local non profit that provides mentoring programs for children living with a family member with cancer.
Last month West Coast Sound's Molly Bergen praised a recent DeLuca performance, pointing out that the singer has the ability to "switch between a honeyed lilt to a vicious snarl in five seconds flat," and is a reliable purveyor of soothing, bluesy Dave-Matthews-esque vibes. People are starting to pay attention, and he's getting known through his Billboard hit song "Colorful."
Twenty-five year old Marcus Vaughn will open the show. The singer/songwriter/guitarist's debut album Ceiling Noise came out in April, after he spent two years recording and mixing the tracks from his tiny apartment.
Saturday's concert, catered with gourmet food and cocktails from local eateries, will be held at the South Bay BMW rooftop in Torrance. Walk With Sally's founder, Nick Arquette, is very closely tied to the cause, and as a tribute to his mother, the guests of White Light White Night will wear all white attire; a symbol of the healing power of the color white. Tickets are $100 or $150 VIP and doors open at 7 p.m."
