A Few Words From Dennis

"Hi and thanks for dropping by my website.   This focuses on my Western Swing and "Honkytonk" side of life.    I love Western Swing and old traditional Country, and I'm excited to be back playing it more these days .  In the past few years I've had the pleasure to perform with Leona Williams, Tony Booth, Claude Gray, Ron Williams, Teea Goans, T Graham Brown, Mandy Barnett, Marty Haggard, a group of Ray Price's Cherokee Cowboys, and many others.  When time allows, I'm looking forward to more fun and more playing and paying tribute to my heroes like Ray Price and the Cherokee Cowboys, Bob Wills, Tony Booth, and of course Wade Ray, Buddy Spicher and Tommy Jackson."
