Founded and Directed by Daniel D-Lucca Parenti, the D-Lucca Music Group is dedicated to providing the best that the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer in Music Entertainment. Born and raised in the Bay Area, Parenti and his staff of musicians have mastered the local music scene and provide the highest quality of professionalism and musicianship. Parenti has been a top call Artist and Freelance Bassist since the age of 19, and has performed with some of the music industry's biggest icons. Among those are Rosemary Clooney and Michael Feinstein. With Concord Records, Parenti was part of 5 full length albums, two of which were Grammy-Nominated. His endeavors don't limit to only Jazz however, and in 2012 he decided it was time to create the D-Lucca Music Group. Playing everything from Rock, Jazz, R&B, Gospel, and everything else in between, Parenti dedicates himself fully in his craft and to constant study and training in his field. As a Composer and Producer, Parenti has created as well as assisted in many Original Performance Groups and Recordings.

Susan Frances of Smoothjazz.com says it best when she said, "D-Lucca has fused jazz and rock so beautifully that you don't know when one ends and the other begins." http://www.dlucca.com/
