“A knock-out player… soulful and jazz-tinged”

Guitarist Magazine

Remarkably versatile and expansive guitarist/singer, encompassing swing, bebop, blues, rock and everything between, Denny is equally acclaimed for his thrilling guitar playing, smooth vocalising and appearances at Ronnie Scott’s fronting his jazz salute to Jimi Hendrix with the Electric Lady Big Band. 

“Comprehensive mastery of the guitar” The Whitman Review 

Chris Ingham on Piano leads the Dean Street All Stars and needs no introduction to our Dean Street regulars. Whether leading his REBOP band playing the music of Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock; hosting his Jazz At The Movies group, or performing the stories, anecdotes and music of greats such as Hoagy Carmichael, Stan Getz and Dudley Moore, Chris’ concerts deliver pure joy, entertainment and great music to sold out audiences.

Completing the line up are the tuneful tones of Joe Pettitt – double bass and the rhythmic genius that is George Double -drums.

Please join us to launch your Christmas festivities. Last year’s customers had a ball. 2023 will be even better.
