Customizing the Perfect Music for Your Event...

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR MUSIC THAT:

- perfectly suits for your type of event?
- your guests will rave about?
- is reasonably priced?

Finding the right music for your event does not have to be a struggle. Dennis Winge and his various bands have played hundreds of weddings, corporate events and private parties over the last 3 decades (see the testimonials at the bottom of each band’s page in the List of Services below).

solo or with one of his bands could be an excellent choice for your ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, party or corporate event because you get:

– complete customizability of genre (classic / newer rock, jazz, classical – instrumental or with voice) with a vast repertoire to choose from

– friendly and prompt communication

– reasonable pricing

– music at the perfect volume

– interaction with your guests, when appropriate (people sitting in to sing or play, taking special requests, etc.)

Here's what to do:

1. Select what type of entertainment you want from the List of Services below (i.e. solo acoustic, rock cover band, jazz band, etc)

2. Reach out to Dennis directly: click the blue button in the top-right corner of every page.

3. If he is available on the date of your event and it seems like it could be a good fit, you can schedule a free consultation by videoconference or phone so he can hear about your musical vision for your special day.


List of Services

most popular choices:

Solo guitar and voice – one-man-band rock and pop covers
Rock cover band – The Way Band
Solo instrumental – jazz, rock, classical guitar
Jazz and instrumental band – Dennis Winge Ensemble

other options:

Salsa / Afro-Cuban / Latin jazz – Salsa Ithacana!
Blues & Beyond – Blue Train
Sacred Chanting – Damodar Das Kirtan or Mantra Magic Band
Flute and guitar duo – Matrix Duo
Original music – Dennis Winge Trio
Songwriting Services – Lyrics Into Songs
Studio Work – remote or in-person recording services

If you book elsewhere, you may be taking a risk that these elements are not met to yours or your guests’ satisfaction such as music that’s too loud, doesn’t fit your event, is ‘cookie cutter,’ or has a bandleader who’s not flexible or communicative. Also, contact Dennis ASAP because his schedule can fill up quickly especially during the warmer months!

If you read the testimonials at the bottom of each link below, you’ll see that by booking Dennis or one of his bands, you’ll feel terrific about how well your event went, you’ll have amazing memories for the rest of your life, and you’ll be admired by friends, family and colleagues who will be impressed at the quality of your event.

Be sure read Dennis’ article on How to Find a Great Band for Your Event here. If it’s a wedding, read his article “Why I Love Playing Weddings” which shows his personal philosophy about playing music for those special events.

    Perfect in every way

    Dennis was an absolute perfect addition for our 60+ at home outdoor wedding. His selection was perfect and he truly cared about what we wanted as a couple and also what the guests wanted.

    Dennis Winge Ensemble's reply:

    Thanks Alex it was very fun and I wish you and Brennan a wonderful life together. I enjoyed letting a few guests sit in and sing as well.

    Everyone loved the band!

    Hi Dennis, you guys were awesome! The music was perfect and our guests raved about the band. It was everything we wanted and more. Thank you for helping to make the day a stress-free breeze. You're the utmost professional and I appreciate how you needed nothing from me on the wedding day. I showed up and you were there and it was so easy! My only wish is that we spent more of the cocktail hour outside to really enjoy the music! Thank you for learning Frank Sinatra's My Way, Elton John's Rocket Man and Roxette's, Listen To Your Heart. We loved the songs and you did an amazing job with them. I wish I could go back and relive the whole day all over again!

    Dennis Winge Ensemble's reply:

    Heather thank you very much! Because it was such a small, intimate gathering we felt honored and blessed to be the musical host. I am super-grateful that you liked the music so much. Many blessings to both of you and congratulations once again!
