Dennis is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Barton County, Missouri. He found an old guitar in Grandpa's attic in 1963. Went to trade school by hanging out where music was being made. More than 50 years later, he’s still picking and singing.
In 2022, he’s playing steel guitar with the Cosmic Riders band, lead guitar with Mick Byrd and the Backroad Band, and working as a sideman for other regional artists. Also hosting the monthly CoMo Song Swap singer-songwriter events and doing occasional solo shows. Acoustic and electric guitar, B-bender style, bottleneck guitar, Dobro, steel guitar with and without pedals, and mandolin.
Dennis was a member KFAL radio’s Rooster Creek Boys as singer and guitarist for 10 years. Sang and played mandolin with the Ironweed Bluegrass Band for 15 years.
He’s worked in many tavern bands, or as one-fool-on-a-stool with a guitar. It’s been a few years, but have you heard his solo album "Two Dollar Portrait" featuring original songs and instrumental tunes?
Dennis sings about life, love, and losing in an Ozark/Okie style. He loves to entertain with an instrument in his arms -- and he can usually find a tune that will make you want to laugh, cry, or dance.
