Dennis Gregory / Bio

Born in Austin, Texas, November 24th 1948, Dennis Gregory came out west at 4 years old in a covered 1950 Plymouth. His Marine Flyer, Texas Congressman Dad and beautiful scholarly mother settled with Denny in Orange County, Southern Cal where he ran wild in the Orange Groves.

He grew up in the 60s surfing in Southern Cal - then in 1970 moved to Hawaii Island, founding the University of Hawaii Lit. Magazine. Soon, Denny became known for his literary railings in support of Hawaiian causes, and in 1978 he was named 'Poet Laureate of Hawaii' by the U of Hawaii President.

In the 70s he formed his first band, Denny and the Lava Brothers. He lived in the northern cal Wine Country awhile and after returning in the 90s with the same band, he was rocking all the parties in Puna - Southern Hawaii. With his ragged jungle-rock style, and beautiful melodies, his album "Sex, Drugs and Sushi Roll" was played island-wide on radio, making him a local celebrity; his songs always heralding Hawaiian and common man causes.

After traveling the world, singing on the streets of San Francisco, London, and far away Athens, Greece, Denny returned to his beloved Hawaii and after teaching English and publishing two novels, he hooked up with Producer/ Musician John Smith (aka Johnny Sunshine) in Kona, Hawaii. With Johnny's wise guidance Denny G is fastly becoming a musical phenomena and television star all over the Big Island. His songs are deep and touching and his latest album, Daybreak, released by Malolo Records in June of 2010, is his greatest gift of Aloha. Denny G's songs will sing Hawaii, love and beauty into your heart.
