Higher Ground -  Sensational, Professional and very stylish

Higher Ground is one of Melbourne’s most sought after corporate and wedding bands. Led by Melbourne vocalist Rocky Loprevite, Higher Ground has left a powerful impression wherever they perform.

 

Their unique line up of male and female vocalist, Electric guitar and saxophone/percussion allows the group to cover all genres of music. Higher Ground takes you on a musical journey through time, from the classic jazz and swing era, the rock and roll period of 50’s and 60’, the retro era of the 70’s and 80’s, party classics of the 90’s right through to the most current hits. Their experience and versatility has led them to be booked every week of the calendar year. They are an elite unit, that are guaranteed to get people dancing all night long.

In the last 20 years ROCKY LOPREVITE has forged his way through the Australian music scene on many levels. His superb vocals and his absolute professional demeanor have led to him being booked to support some of Australia’s most respected performers: from John Farnham and Olivia Newton-John, through to Vanessa Amorosi, and Guy Sebastian. He has also performed alongside such luminary acts as INXS, CDB and Crowded House. Further, he has been booked to perform – time and again – as a solo act on live television, (Sunrise and Good Morning Australia, for example) and at major arena events, including Melbourne’s Carols by Candlelight, The Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal and Sydney’s Drought Relief concert.

 

Rocky has even performed our national anthem for the NRL rugby final and for then Prime Minister, John Howard, at the Australian of the Year awards. In 2005 Rocky was a finalist on Australian Idol, where he got to work alongside then musical director John Foreman. Most recently Rocky has performed regularly with Anthony Callea at several venues throughout Australia, which included a George Michael tribute concert, a Mothers Day event and a Christmas show with special guest Rhonda Burchmore. In 2015 Rocky joined the Chong Lim Orchestra as one of the main vocalists on channel 7’s Dancing with the Stars, where he sang alongside Tina Arena and Mick Hucknall from Simply Red.
