About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Hello and thank you for checking out my profile. I am a pro guitarist with decades of experience. BEFORE YOU CHOOSE A BAND FOR YOUR EVENT, be sure to read my article "How to Choose a Band for Your Event" available on my website. I run two types of bands: - rock/ pop cover band called "The Way" - jazz group called "Dennis Winge Ensemble" Each band is described below. I. The Way (rock cover band) We are not a “cookie-cutter” wedding/ event band that plays the same songs the same way every time. Rather, we are a fun, creative, spontaneous and lively group of seasoned professionals who love to play and love to make people happy. We have a huge repertoire of material from many genres from classic and modern rock to Motown to jazz and even a little country. Typically for a wedding or corporate event, we play jazz or soft-rock during the cocktail hour that serves as superior background music that is interesting to listen to but not too in your face. But when it comes time that people are ready to dance, it's all about the funk, Motown, rock and boogie that will keep people movin' and groovin'. The main strength of “The Way” is in serving your event at every moment the best it can possibly served musically. How do we do this? Our decades of experience as pro musicians (some of whom have played in many countries as well as Carnegie Hall and the LA FAME Awards), gives us the ability to “read” the crowd and respond accordingly with the perfect song at every moment. Further, each member of the group also plays in other bands and brings fresh, creative ideas to the table every time we play. So, if you are looking for a real first-class band that is also totally fun and ready for anything; if you want a group that will get people asking “Wow where did you find this band?” then look no further. This, to us, is “The Way” it should be. II. Jazz Ensemble I have been a full-time musician for decades, and have performed at such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, the Los Angeles Music Awards, and in many countries. You can read more about me in the bio section of my website, but what matters most about the Dennis Winge Ensemble is that althouh we are first-rate musicians, we play the music that works best for your event, not just what we like. For example, what we play during the cocktail hour is not the same as when everyone wants to dance after dinner! I customize the repertoire and the instrumentation to suit your event. This is definitely not cookie-cutter jazz music. Have a few requests? No problem. We make it easy and add the perfect touch of elegance to your event.

Review by Shelley D.

Graduation PartyReviewed on June 27, 2015From Apalachin, NY

These guys are GREAT! I hired them because my son likes jazz but, I found myself enjoying them just as much! They were on time, friendly, played for the amount of time agreed to and you could tell they really enjoyed playing as much as we did listening! These guys never complained even though they had to shlep their gear through a torrential downpour. They accommodated our requests and helped make for a great party. Dennis really knows his way around a guitar and he and the band are all true seasoned musicians. YES, I would not hesitate to hire them again.

Holiday PartyReviewed on December 15, 2017From Sidney, NY

Dennis was great! He was able to easily assess what type of music (vocal or instrumental) that would suit our affair and his suggestion worked. He was very flexible as we had various giveaways and drawings that needed to be done while he was playing. The sound level was correct for our venue; not too loud or not too quiet. Everyone enjoyed his playing and it made our event! I would definitely hire him again.

New Year's Eve PartyReviewed on December 31, 2018From Binghamton, NY
