WELCOME TO THE DENINZOO!
Joe Deninzon Feb/March 2014 NEWS
Happy friggin New Year!
Here’s hoping you guys and gals have an unforgettable 2014 full of the finest things in life, namely health, wealth, wisdom, and wild days and nights of music and inspiration!
2013 saw a lot of milestones in my life, namely the birth of our daughter, Arianna Margaret Deninzon on April 14th!
I was also fortunate to return to some of my favorite places and do what I love, teaching and performing.
I returned to the Mark Wood Rock Orchestra Camp for the third year in a row and had an unforgettable experience teaching string kids how to rock out and let their freak flag fly.
I also returned to the Grand Canyon Music Festival for the 13th year in a row to perform with Robert Bonfiglio and work with the School of Rock.
After a successful kickstarter campaign, Stratospheerius filmed and released our first official video for the song “One Foot in the Next World”, which went into heavy rotation on over 80 stations and video outlets!
Other highlights include a successful Southern tour with Sweet Plantain, and more great reviews of my book and the last Stratospheerius CD.
This year, I’m already hitting the ground running, with plenty of shows and new projects bubbling bubbling bubbling…

Joe Deninzon mentioned among most notable electric violin players of the last 30 years in February issue of STRINGS! (link)
Joe Deninzon was interviewed in STRINGS Magazine january issue about the future of Sweet Plantain and tips on composing and performing with tracks and acoustic instruments.
I am excited to announce that i will be returning again to the Mark Wood Rofck Orchestra Camp this summer! Early discounted registration is open NOW!
Although the focus of the camp is to educate and inspire string players to “plug in” and break out of the classical box, this camp is NOT just for string players. Singers and all instrumentalists are welcome! Topics covered are arranging, theory, alternative techniques, recording technology, stage presence, music business, and much more…. plus plenty of opportunities to perform and blow everyone away!
