“The Reviews and letters of thanks have been coming in about the fantastic evening last week. I have great memories of (past shows) but I think you exceeded them and our expectations. Having (our) guests experience a world class show here in Sedona was magical.

Patti cannot stop talking about how wonderful everything went and working with you to set the program up. I know our goal was to impress the travel writers, hotel owners and selected VIPs during the anniversary weekend and your show put everything over the top.

You and Teri are the best!”

“I remember how much excitement that auction package generated for all in attendance that wonderful evening. I have never experienced anything quite like that in all my years of attending black tie auctions. You could hear a pin drop when you filled the Barker Hanger with your incredible voice. I knew at that moment that the sales price would set a new record for a single package.

Thank you so much for making Sellabration so memorable and, of course for creating this magical evening.”

CEO, Little Company of Mary Hospital

 




“What a delight it was to have you perform at our Annual Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Let me congratulate you on the repertoire of musical pieces that you selected for the performance.

Many others commented that it appropriately set the tone for the evening.”

Dear Dennis,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for bringing your  special magic to New York Life meetings over the past few years. Whether it was a room of 50, 500 or 1000’s, you have never failed to “wow” our attendees. The professionalism you brought to the table was only overshadowed by the pure talent showcased in your voice and your productions. In my 34 years at New York Life –  both as a meeting attendee and as Vice President in charge of Meeting Planning – I cannot recall ever seeing audiences, from one meeting to the next, demanding encores after every single performance. You have played a big part in making all of our events especially memorable.”

-Jules Del Vecchio, First Vice President, New York Life Insurance Company






“I’ve been planning events for many years and one thing is certain: The successful ones always start with a good relationship during the planning stages. In the case of your performance during the Kemper Open, the relationship and the results were superb. Our reaction, the client’s and the audience’s all support that. The incredibly high energy and excitement that you communicate to your audience through your voice and your presence is like no others I have seen. The feedback and client reactions were consistently positive and full of nothing but praise.

While we rarely have repeated entertainment, we are thrilled that you are with us again for the next Kemper Open. A different setting and style, but I know it will be one that will have the guests on their feet.

Thank you Dennis for the quality of your work and all your efforts on our behalf. I think tha tyou truly have become part of the Kemper team.”

-Mady Lesnik, Executive Consultant, Kemper Lesnik Communications



“The loss of Space Shuttle Columbia had a profound impact on the KSC Community, and the incident was very hard to recover from.

Music can often express thoughts, emotions, and a totality that words cannot. You came to a community that was severely hurt, to help them honor those who had fallen, to unite and to mend a dream that was torn. You provided a rare gift at a time when it was badly needed, and your helped us in a way that is both significant and very hard to describe. As your music said, we are Americans, we are a united people who share both triumph and sorrow; and we will still hope for and will build a better future.

Thank you for coming to our memorial, for lending us the strength and support of your voice raised in song, and for sharing this moment with us. It is very much appreciated.”

-NASA, John F. Kennedy Space Center


“Your concert here was a fantastic success! The audience couldn’t sit still, as they were either humming and singing along or clapping in rhythm to each number. We were ver pleased with a full house in attendance and a very enthusiastic and responsive that was unbelievable! It was a superb way to celebrate S. Patrick’s Day

Executive Director, Norris Center for the Performing Arts

That’s why he is asked back by so many different groups and has developed a reputation on the professional singing circuit that matches the best of those on the speaking sircuit. Many regard him as among the three best American tenors singing today. In short, he would be a real hit.”
