At the age of 7, the now 15-year-old student from Leinefelde, Germany, began his education for the soprano saxophone at the ‘Eichsfeld Music School’. His out of the ordinary talent and love for music was discovered quickly.
Classical competitions such as ‘Youth Music’ and numerous Jazz workshops as well as performances on small and bigger stages followed soon. Due to his passion for music and the lifestyle of the 50ies, guest appearances with well-known Rock ‘n Roll bands like “Mister Twist” and “The Firebirds” soon began.
Whether for private or public occasions, in the saxophone quintet ‘Die Saxerotiker’, or in larger ensembles , Lorenz proves his talent regularly.
At the age of 6, Dennis stumbled across his grandfathers old accordion.
Heavy lessons in folk music weren’t his thing. So without a teacher, his mother’s good nerves while practicing daily (AC/DC among others) and much enthusiasm, his passion brought him to Rock ´ Roll.
Dennis first played solo locally until fortune brought him together with Lorenz. They hit it off instantly and even with the distance they developed their own sound without much practice.
Along the way Dennis learned to play the drums and the piano. Paired with his unmistakable voice, performing from Jerry Lee Lewis up to Elvis Presley, he’s the perfect Boogie Banause.
His Rock ‘n Roll career started with dancing. Due to his growing interest in Rock ‘n Roll and his joy in music he became a drummer for the rockabilly band “Jumblers” in 1998. Since then he has played for many other bands, like ‘The Wildwood Boys’, ‘Ray Allen’ or ‘the Barracudas’. It’s impossible to imagine the Rock ‘n Roll music scene without him. His favorite instrument remains the drums even though the double bass and the rhythm guitar grew on him as well.
Michael’s joy on stage not only inspires his band members but also his audience. Keep on Rockin’.
