$100 - $2000 per event
A full-time musician for over 10 years, Dennis Winge was one of the most ubiquitous jazz and pop/rock/soul guitarists in the New York City area before moving to Horseheads, NY in January 2012. He has performed at such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, the Los Angeles Music Awards, and in many countries including Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, and Austria.

Having started to learn guitar at age 7 and bass at age 12, Dennis has studied with some of NYC's finest guitarists including Ron Parmentier and Jack Wilkins. Winge played his first bar gig when he was 16, and has been a bandleader since his early 20s, when he headed the main campus function band "The Institutionalized" jazz trio while attending Manhattan College. Later, he became the musical director for Ikonographics Videos, Inc.

Scott Yanow, jazz reviewer for "All Music Guide" & author of 9 jazz books, says: "Dennis is a talented jazz guitarist [who] recalls Barney Kessel, Jim Hall and Pat Martino, but he definitely has his own sound and approach to the modern jazz mainstream. Winge engages in lively and near-telepathic interplay with different bassists and drummers. His music is full of subtle surprises, variety in tempos, moods and grooves, and covers a wide range of styles. The results are quite enjoyable, very musical and a major step forward for the guitarist."

As for off-Broadway productions, Dennis has played in the pit on Les Miserables, All Shook Up, Footloose, 13, Smokey Joe's Cafe, as well as portions of Rock of Ages, Wicked, Aida, All That Jazz, Jeckyl & Hyde, and In the Heights.

Dennis' ensemble features some of the finest instrumentalists in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes. The Ensemble has a huge repertoire, and is equally suited for dancing or for superior background music. The Ensemble can be booked in smaller units such as duo, trio, quartet, or the full band.

Dennis Winge's Ensemble adds elegance, class, and first-rate musicianship to any event!

These guys are GREAT! I hired them because my son likes jazz but, I found myself enjoying them just as much! They were on time, friendly, played for the amount of time agreed to and you could tell they really enjoyed playing as much as we did listening! These guys never complained even though they had to shlep their gear through a torrential downpour. They accommodated our requests and helped make for a great party. Dennis really knows his way around a guitar and he and the band are all true seasoned musicians. YES, I would not hesitate to hire them again.
