Denis played accordion for a recent Paris themed fundraiser for our school, and we could not have been happier with the results. He was the perfect addition and made the Paris cafe scene come alive! He was a delight to work with, a true gentleman, a consummate professional, and very, very talented! I'm not sure we will require another accordion player soon, but he has many, musical talents and a large repertoire. I would not hesitate to hire him again for our next school venue, or for my own personal "gig" as well. Thank You Denis for a tres magnifique experience.

With his smooth singing voice and wide vocal range, he can caress a ballad and liven any upbeat song. His vast repertoire includes a broad array of selections not only in English, but also in French, & Italian ... and a touch of German & Spanish.
Originally from Ottawa, Canada, Denis is a professional career musician. He has appeared on Canadian television, and has played for dignitaries including Queen Elizabeth II and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Denis has served as a judge at the Juno Awards, Canada’s equivalent of the Grammies.
