Dennis has performed professionally throughout many parts of the world, backing international superstars like Bernadette Peters and The Four Tops/Temptations… on land, sea, and air (television that is!). His own group has been an opening act for headliners as diverse as Bob Seger and Bill Cosby. Closer to home, Dennis has appeared in many Stage, Green Show, and Daedalus productions at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon. He’s also performed in other theatre settings including the Camelot Theatre Company and Oregon Cabaret Theatre. Dennis has recorded five albums (featuring many of his original compositions), and been a session musician on countless recordings.
Oregon Shakespeare Festival “Vilna’s Got A Golem”
Dennis’ first appearance with OSF was in Director Barbara Damashek’s 1998 production of “Vilna’s Got A Golem”, playing Clarinet, Bass Clarinet and Flute. The band was named The Spuds (Idaho)… because the band Oregon was in residence in 1998.
