The evening’s lineup includes:
Dennis Chiccino is the front man for the highly successful party band Chico’s Vibe. His professional career dates back to the late 1970’s and the famous Main Point in Bryn Mawr, with his very first band, Orpheus. Since then, Dennis has enjoyed success with many bands, most notably the Big Daddy Band and the John Hoey Orchestra as well as the duos Chico & Doc and Chico & Gebby. He has been the lead singer, rhythm and acoustic guitarist, and MC for each ensemble. “Chico’s” bio also includes much session and studio work over the years, including voice-overs for radio and TV commercials. His music has taken him to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, and all over the USA including California and Hawaii. www.chicosvibe.com
As the onetime singer/songwriter/guitarist for Philadelphia’s The Stand, McClatchy guided The Stand through a successful run that included being named “Best Unsigned Band” by both East Coast Rocker & WMMR Radio. McClatchy’s music blurs the lines between all styles of American music. Rock, folk and country are all touchstones of his song writing. McClatchy and his band have worked nationally with acts as varied as Steve Earle, The BoDeans, John Hiatt, Confederate Railroad, and Little Steven. McClatchy also performed acoustically with folks like T-Bone Burnette and Corey Glover (Living Colour).
Denise’s songs shine a mindful light on the everyday things of our lives, reflecting on their deeper meanings. Her voice is direct, honest, lovely, and she leaves you feeling like you’ve found a new friend. Songs from Her first CD were played on over eighty radio stations, and two from her new CD, Here Right Now, have been recently played on WXPN. Denise’s intention as a songwriter is to tell the unflinching truth (but not always the facts) and to touch people’s kindred places. She was thrilled to be chosen three times to participate in an intimate, intense and life-changing songwriting workshop facilitated by Rosanne Cash. Denise has also created a following with her blog that often includes flash fiction, fly on the wall portraits of moments. www.denisemosermusic.com
