Performing in over 100 cities each year, Americana/Folk/Acoustic musician and entertainer Dennis Warner captivates audiences with his smooth vocals and six and twelve string guitars. Dennis has put out 10 CD’s of his original music and is also an outstanding entertainer, cleverly blending ballads, up-tempo songs, audience participation and humor into a memorable event. He is noted for his warm stage presence and ability to connect with his audience.

For his songwriting talents, Dennis was honored with an invitation to perform in concert at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. He has been a three-time “New Folk” finalist for songwriting at the internationally acclaimed Texas based Kerrville Folk Festival and has appeared multiple times at Nashville’s famed writers’ club, The Bluebird Café.

Besides his original music, Warner is widely admired for his moving interpretations of songs written by others. Fan favorites include “Don't Laugh at Me”, “The Garden Song” (Inch by Inch) and “Homegrown Tomatoes”. Many also know Dennis for his classic YouTube video “I'm My Own Grandpa” with over three quarter of a million hits.

Dennis has collaborated with many noted musicians, including musician/humanitarian J.D. Steele, rock and roll legend Bobby Vee, vocalist Prudence Johnson, instrumentalists Peter Ostroushko, Paul Diethelm, Freebo and George Maurer.

In November of 2018, Dennis is scheduled to appear as a headline performer at the next Parliament of the World’s Religions gathering in Toronto, where over 10,000 people are expected to attend, representing more than 80 nations and 200 spiritual backgrounds.

Though he calls Minnesota home, Warner loves to travel and has visited every state, touring solo and also with his band “the D’s”.  On and off the stage, Dennis is personable and good-humored. When not working on his music, he can be found sailing, eating ice cream or listening to a Minnesota Twins baseball game.  On a good day, he might be doing all three.
