Thanks for the review. It is always nice to hear from people who have
gone to see Dennis live. His show has evolved into one of the best
entertainment destinations out there. The band rocks. His vocals
never cease to amaze and he does such a great variety of music mixing
the old with the spot-on new.
I hope more of you who are going to a DeYoung show will share on this
group and others.
