Dennis arrived on time, with a smile on his face, despite the nasty, rainy weather! His music added that extra special touch for my husband's 40th bday party and helped to create a warm, inviting party atmosphere for our guests. I highly recommend Dennis and hope to work with him again in the future.
Dennis earned a Bachelor of Music (jazz guitar performance) from Cornish College of the Arts. As a Cornish student, he studied with notable jazz artists such as Chuck Deardorf, Dawn Clement, Julian Priester and Jovino Santos Neto. Dennis earned multiple talent-based scholarships and graduated Magna Cum Laude.
There are several unique aspects of Dennis' playing that sets him apart. A fingerstylist, Dennis has a gorgeous tone and he plays the seven-string guitar. He has a strong harmonic sense and his voicings are unique among guitarists. His ability to take on more than one role simultaneously (combining melodies, harmony and bass lines) makes Dennis a perfect fit for solo performances. Dennis' playing style is very lyrical and his sound is warm and engaging. Dennis' music works great as background ambience for events and also as a main attraction.
