Denny's musical journey has been long and diverse. He started off playing Rock & Roll in the 60's and then changed styles to R&B.  Denny formed a Soul Band in Detroit in the late 60's to the early 70's and had a lot of experience doing big shows and working with many national artists.  Denny then turned his taste to the acoustic folk-rock styles of James Taylor, Crosby Stills & Nash, Cat Stevens.  Later in 1976 he moved to Washington State and started to listen to fingerstyle guitarists like Chet Akins, John Hurt, Doc Watson and John Fahey.  Living out West in a small town the people seemed to like good fingerstyle acoustic music so Denny formed a Country Rock Band that he was the leader of for ten years.  During that time Denny started working on his fingerstyle guitar while living in Washington State.  Denny later decided to move to Florida in 1986 and changed his style to Calypso and Reggae and played Steel Drums.  Denny today is known for playing Tropical Music.  Presently Denny is working at restaurants and beach hotels.  Denny is still working full time as a musician and performs at Bahama Breeze, and Ruth Chris in Tampa and Jimmy Guanas in Indian Rocks Beach Fl.
