Paying tribute to David Bowie @New Way Bar

The Charlie Dentel Band had a great night at the New Way Bar in Ferndale this April, joining Power Broker, Corndaddy, the Isotones, and Paul’s Big Radio to pay tribute to David Bowie.  Returning with a new, stellar lineup with my old pal Ahvram Novetsky on the drums, our old time partner in crime and guitar wiz Alex Johnson, and the sublime Serge Van Der Voo on bass, a grand time and remembrance was had by all.  Check out these videos of our versions of Moonage Daydream and Ashes to Ashes below.

CD joins Dig A Phony!



Hey little Darlin’s, it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter, but I’m roaring back this summer.  I’ve joined a great Beatles Tribute act called Dig A Phony as the keyboardist and vocalist.  Their mission is to reproduce live the legendary recordings of the Beatles, down to the last handclap and vocal arrangement.  What a whole lot of fun!  Check out this video of Come Together.

Charlie Dentel @Old Town Tavern, Ann Arbor. Sunday, 10/19/14

Ah, the Old Town, I’ll be returning to the Old Town on October 19th at 8PM.  Nothin’ like the Old Town, lots of good listeners there, and at the same time lots of good A2 chatter, which provides a great atmosphere.  There’s room to rock out joyfully or wail loudly and mournfully, or whatever you need.  Come out and join me, you can come up and spin the big wheel of song and see if you land on a bonus, or in the gutter……..just kidding, it’ll be the bonus!
