JOE DENINZON—INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MUSICALITY--TOURS WITH “SPIDER DANCE,” METRO STRINGS and more!

Joe Deninzon’s summer “vacation” includes collaborations with a variety of folks.  He’s the musical director for SPIDER DANCE, which he describes as an Italian Riverdance crossed with Cirque Du Soleil, and celebrates the mythical and therapeutic history of the dance, the Tarantella. Mixed with electronic music, the show features fire dancers, stilt walkers, and aerial dancers and percussionist Alessandra Belloni.   From August 9 through the 23, SPIDER DANCE will tour Spain and Italy. For more information, visit: http://www.alessandrabelloni.com and http://www.theriversidechurchny.org

Joe has also co-created an electric, classical music quartet called Metro Strings.  He, of course, plays violin.  Also in the quartet are: and Brazz Tree violinist Mazz Swift and Sweet Plantain’s cellist/vocalist David Gotay, and Hiroko Taguchi on viola.  Friend the group at www.myspace.com/metrostrings.

He’s got other projects happening; check them out at his NEW web site http://www.joedeninzon.com.
