Dennis enjoys singing songs with a bit of a "Rat Pack" vibe, songs made popular by such artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Michael Buble', as well as some gems from the 60's. In his early teen years, he regularly watched the Dean Martin Hour (variety show) and just loved Dean's singing, his sense of humor, and his relaxed nature.
While having aspirations to sing and be part of a band, his practical side chose a career in teaching. For 35 years, he taught elementary physical education in the Medway Public Schools. After his retirement in 2011, it was time to have some fun with the singing. Dennis frequently performs with the Bart Weisman Jazz Group, is the lead male singer with the Cape Conservatory Jazz Band, an eighteen piece big band led by Tyler Newcomb, and occasionally with Stage Door Canteen, a 12 piece wedding band led by Roger Gamache, and the Charlie Jaimeson quartet.
Paul McWilliams is a 1975 graduate of the Berklee College of Music. He teaches private lessons in piano. Paul has wide professional experience specializing in vocal accompaniment and has performed in New York City, Boston, Cambridge, Hyannis, Florida, London, Amsterdam, The Hague, Oslo, the U. S. Virgin Islands, and on Majesty Cruise Lines.
Ron is a jazz bassist originally from Boston, where he studied at Berklee College of Music. In addition to performing at many of the local Boston jazz clubs, he was a founding member of the Boston Jazz Quartet. This group played extensively throughout the New England area and made two tours through Europe. From 1979 to 1984, he owned and operated The Columns Restaurant, a well-known jazz club on Cape Cod. For twenty years Ron was the bassist and personal manager for stride and Dixieland pianist Marie Marcus. Ron performed with Marie in jazz clubs from Cape Cod to Miami as well as an appearance at the Newport/New York Jazz Festival. He has also appeared in concert with jazz greats such as Chuck Wayne, Warren Vache, Joe Muranyi, Dick Johnson, Billy Stritch, Howard Alden, Ken Peplowski and many others. Ron currently performs in the greater New England area and one month a year in São Paulo, Brazil. In addition, from 1986 to 2015 he owned and operated REO Studios, a 24-track professional recording studio on Cape Cod.
Bart Weisman performs across Cape Cod with his Jazz Group, Klezmer Swing Group, Smooth Jazz Group, and the Cape Cod Jazz Quintet. Bart has worked with a number of musicians on Cape Cod including J. Geils, Molly Ringwald, Rebecca Parris, Lou Colombo, Dick Johnson, and many more. Bart is the Executive Producer & Performer for the Provincetown Jazz Festival and performs year-round at the Grand Cru Restaurant & The West End in Hyannis.
