The players include Joe Walsh and Eagles drummer Joe Vitale with crisp horn arrangements by cutting edge jazz trumpeter Josh Rzepka and back to church keyboardist and arranger David Thomas with Freddie Salem on guitars.
DenZon has and always will be quite comfortable touring non-stop to promote his upcoming offering.The road is his home.
Opening the night will be another Akron native – singer/songwriter Zach & the Brite Lights and the Little Fish trifecta will be completed with Robin Stone, who will finish off the night
