performing broadway, country, easy listening
and his well known tribute to the music of Neil Diamond
Denny was born in Chicago, Il. and spent his childhood growing up in Lyons, Il., Berwyn, Il. and Maywood, Il. While attending high school St. Ignatius College prep in Chicago he realized his love for performing. During his senior year he became involved in musicals getting such roles as “Billy Bigelow” in Rogers & Hammersteins, “Carousel” and “Professor Harold Hill” in Meredith Wilson’s, “The Music Man”. He also appeared in community theater in Oak Park, Il. where he portayed a young Scrooge in a musical version of Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”.
During his college years and beyond Denny sang in a wedding band called, “Night Moods”. The band was very succesful and worked well after Denny left. He then teamed up with his brother, Pete, to create, “Relations singing dj’s”. They were a little more than your average mobile dj’s. The two would perform dance routines to songs to motivate party guests and became very popular in the wedding and corporate circuit. With karaoke just coming to the states, Pete and Denny incorporated the technology by performing songs during dinner. This was where Denny found out he had a similar baritone voice to Neil Diamond. When his brother moved to Florida, Relations singing dj’s hung up their turntables. But with karaoke becoming extremely popular, Denny kept singing and eventually was sought after by Dick Clark productions to appear on a new tv show called, “Your Big Break”. A show that took everyday people and turned them into the stars that they sounded like.
Since his appearance on Dick Clark’s, “Your Big Break” television show in ‘2000’, Denny became one of the most sought after Neil Diamond tribute artists. His voice has an uncanny similarity to that of Neil Diamond’s distinctive baritone voice and Denny’s stage presence is second to none. Now being joined by his son’s, Lucas & Spenser, they perform music by some of America’s favorite entertainers. All of this combined guarantees a performance enjoyed by everyone.
