Lorenzo Petrocca

Born:

Lorenzo Petrocca, born in 1964 at Crotone/southern Italy, came to Germany in 1979 as an emigrant with his family.

In 1981 he succeeded in being the Champion of Wuerttemberg in his weight class. From 1982 on he showed his first musical interests. At that time he was already 18 years old. And so he bought his first electric guitar. Soon after that he already played with Italian dance bands, from 1986 on within soul and funk bands among American soldiers

better than TV

Active since:

better than TV had its formal debut in 2011. Our line up changed during the years as former students left Cambridge, and it is fluid and rather unconventional. We published two albums, 'Late’ in 2015 and ‘Song from No Man’s Land’ in 2018, both receiving positive reviews and radio time. We play regularly in Cambridge and London.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
