Jersey Rock Band of the Week: Joe Deninzon and Stratospheerius
Joe Deninzon is a true Classic Rocker, but not just in the way that you may think. He combines the power of actual Classical Music with Progressive Rock via his electric violin to produce a symphonic shredding sound. That sound is at the heart of his group Stratospheerius. Blurring the lines of musical performance, the group has become a dominant force in the New York Metropolitan area and beyond. Their recent performances at ProgStock provide the perfect evidence of that. In fact, Stratospheerius’ ProgStock sets were so epic the band decided to release them as a CD/DVD/BLUE RAY set!
“Behind The Curtain (Live at ProgStock) is available at joedeninzon.bandcamp.com! Speaking of the release Joe Deninzon said:
“This was 2 performances over 2 different years and we compiled them to make a 2-hour Live album. It’s a DVD Blue Ray…In this day and age I know it’s crazy to release something like that, but we did it anyway!”
As exciting as his work with Stratospheerius is, Deninzon actually has another project that has kept him busy as of late. He recently took a gig as the violin player with Classic Rock icons Kansas! Deninzon recently wrote of the experience in his newsletter:
“It’s been a whirlwind! Playing with a legendary band performing music I grew up listening to in some of the coolest venues in the country, for sold-out or near sold-out audiences! It’s everything I dreamed about as a kid and more!”
While Deninzon is excited to not only continue performing with Kansas, but to get in the studio with them, he still gives plenty of attention to Stratospheerius. The band has two area shows coming up in the near future. Catch them at Debonair Music Hall in Teaneck on September 28 and Kennet Flash in Kennet Square, PA on September 30. Check out Joe Deninzon’s entire performance schedule HERE.
