Kevin Dennis has been a musician since he was 13 years old, when his older brother Bob, who had formed a garage band with some of his friends, handed him a bass and said "you are going to be my new bass player. Here's how to play some Doors songs". So Kevin became a bass player, and eventually a guitarist as well. Kevin now has over 35 years of musical experience under his belt, and over the years has branched out into musical production, recording, and song writing, as well as graphic arts and web design. You can find Kevin in and around the Estes Park, Colorado area playing and recording music with THE DENNIS-TOBIAS BAND, and also with various local musicians, including singer/songwriter Justin Faye (Outfiggy) and guitarist/singer James Moellers. Kevin has played in most of the local venues, including MARY'S LAKE LODGE, THE STANLEY HOTEL, THE ESTES PARK RESORT, THE TIKI BAR, THE ROCK INN, ED'S CANTINA, THE CRAG'S LODGE, KELLI'S LOUNGE, ASPEN LODGE, LONGZ GRILL, LONIGAN'S SALOON, RIVERWALK PLAZA, THE STANLEY FAIRGROUNDS and BOND PARK. Kevin's rock solid bass playing, acoustic guitar picking and mellow vocal style combine to add to the unique sound of the DENNIS ~ TOBIAS BAND. So check us out!!
