Joe Deninzon Electric Violin Concerto

In September of 2015, I played the world premier of my “Dream Diary: Concerto for Seven-String Electric Violin and Orchestra,” With the Muncie Symphony Orchestra under the direction of maestro Douglas Droste. After a lengthy editing process and clearance from the orchestra’s management, I can now share this  highlight reel of the concerto. I am working on getting the piece played by many different players and orchestras worldwide. Stay tuned for updates! If you would like to see/hear the whole 30-minute performance, please contact me.

SkolnickGroupprint

Alex Skolnick is a guitar legend, best known for his work with Testament in the early 90’s through today, plus his time with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and numerous other projects. I was fortunate to befriend Alex in the early 2000’s when I was teaching at the New School and he was there studying Jazz guitar. He played in Stratospheerius for 3 years and recorded on two of our albums; “The Adventures of Stratospheerius and “Live Wires. It will be a thrill to share the stage with him again and open for his incredible band!

JOE DENINZON GUEST APPEARANCES/RECORDING PROJECTS

In the past year, I had the pleasure of guesting on numerous cool and exciting recording projects, many of which have seen their release in the past few months. Here are some highlights:

Bella D-The Crystal Ceiling

12115859_883629648358589_7177997037553878595_n

Here’s aI worked on last year! I did most of the string arranging and playing, plus my dear friend the late great David Gotay plays a beautiful cello solo on “Dio Solitaire de la Notte.” The singer is Bella D and the music is intense, honest hard rock that tells an incredible story of what she overcame in recent years. Produced by drummer Charlie Zeleny. Check it out!

Mark Wood Rock Orchestra Camp/Festival

June 10th-17th

Mark Wood

When I was 17, I was a misfit at my high school A violin nerd who had a deep love for Led Zeppelin,. Rush, Kiss, ACDC, Zappa, and wanted to rock out! If only a camp like this existed when I was 17, I would have been all over it! I see my younger self in every kid who attends. There really is a familial atmosphere and I have made lasting friendships with campers, teachers, and fellow colleagues who are a part of this incredible experience! It is not just for string geeks; guitarists, bassists, singers, drummers, keyboard players, teachers and students of all ages are welcome! I can’t speak enough about what a game changer this week has been for so many musicians and can be for you! I am honored and excited to be coming back for my 6th year as a faculty member at the Mark Wood Rock Orchestra Camp/Music Festival! Register today at:
