What’s Happening in the D – June 2017

Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame

June is off to a great start! I was inducted into the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame at the Music Hall in Detroit last Sunday. It was a packed house and great event! A crew from Detroit Public Television DPTV was at Northern Lights Lounge on Tuesday night and filmed an interview with me and the first set. I will be on Detroit Performs in September. I am also featured in Guitar Techniques magazine article “Session Secrets” in the June issue and my album “Hot Coffey in the D” on Resonance Records got a great review in the Spring 2017 issue of the same magazine.

    Hi Dennis:
    Could you relate how it was working with Irving Micahnik and Harry Balk (Embee Productions), and did they really record in the old Carmen Theatre in East Dearborn?

    That Harry Balk seemed like quite a character.

    (don’t put this on the blog) I live in Laguna Beach now, but grew up in Allen Park.
