Dennis has been in many bands thru the years and now is a solo artist.
Dennis has been playing music in Western Pa, Northeastern Ohio and various other States of the country and Canada for 4 decades now. His family was a big influence when listening to all kinds of their music from polkas,country and western,50 and 60's oldies,motown,pop,folk,hard rock. He started taking drum lessons in elementary school after seeing the The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan show.
Dennis soon found out in a few short years after junior middle school he wanted to start a rock band. But at this time he gave up the drums and became a singer. He sang in his first band with some school pals at age 14 called Mercedes,the band later changed their named to War Child.
By the age of 16, his friend JOE O had a electric guitar, excited by the way it sounded, Dennis asked his parents for one. His folks bought him a old Stella acoustic guitar and 2 used electric guitars plus an ancient amp for X-mas.He played for hours on end.
Learning all he could, he taught himself from all the Mel Bay guitar instructional books.In high school Dennis found an amazing book by Pete Seeger called "Henscratches and Flyspecks."This book created a fire in him that furthered his drive with music.
And still today that fire burns on.
