For twenty plus years, Dennis Nunnelley has been delighting audiences with his piano stylings. From jazz a la Fats Waller to the barrel house blues of Dr. John to Professor Longhair's distinctive stride to the definitive pop of Peter Nero and Vince Guaraldi, there's something to please everyone.
A talented composer, arranger, teacher, conductor and a gifted pianist, Dennis is equally at home with a twenty-five piece jazz band or playing single, live or in the studio. His peers have dubbed him a "two-fisted piano player" and come just to hear "that great left hand."
"Any organization that includes Dennis Nunnelley," according to Birmingham News night life columnist Dennis Washburn, "is bound to be a live wire aggregation." Marcia Ball described him as solid, and an excellent player. Backstage, after hearing Dennis play, Mike Reed quipped, "Nobody is supposed to play my piano like that except me!"
"Dennis Nunnelley plays some mean boogie woogie piano," according to Eric Snider of the St. Petersburg Times. Alan Light of Rolling Stone says, "The spirit is there, the groove is slinky and strong."
A style that has led patrons to ask if Dennis is from New Orleans, Memphis, or Chicago, coupled with a unique, exciting vocal and a dynamic personality is a recipe for a good time.
Like the man said, "Life is a party, and you're all invited."
