John Henry' s Hammer Coffeehouse presents: Dennis Brennan Band

Brennan's bandmates know they can never take a night off when their boss is pounding the microphone. "Dennis is such a strong performer," says [Duke] Levine. "He never phones it in, and that means everything to a sideman. If Dennis is giving something that is amazing, then you'd better give it, too." Or as guitarist [Kevin] Barry says, "I have never played with Dennis when he gives less than 100 percent."
