Much of BoB's early life is shrouded in mystery and conjecture, not because it's interesting, but because of his stubborn refusal to provide accurate information to public forums. After many years as a moto-journalist and mediocre racer, he retired from motocross and turned his full attention back to music, joining Spilled in August 2013.
A native of Arizona, Dennis Meitner has been playing drums since he was 10 years old. Taught by his Dad, Jim, Dennis is a multi-genre musician with a passion for playing several types of music, including (but not limited to) Rock, Jazz, Fusion, Country and Pop. Despite his diverse style, Dennis has kept his core as a rudimentary focused drummer and demonstrates his appreciation for the challenging fundamentals in his playing style. While listening to Dennis, you can expect to hear influence and styles of Carter Beauford (Dave Matthews Band), Bryan Hitt (REO Speedwagon), and tempo feels similar to that of Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors). Although Dennis enjoyed his time touring and loved playing music, he decided to start a family with the lady of his dreams (Debbie) and joined the US Air Force. As the Air Force moved Dennis around the world, he brought his talent to the forefront and was asked to lead a drum line for an Air Force drum and bugle core; he gladly accepted. Dennis continued his drumming passion and played with several jam bands and secular musicians until his family settled back in Arizona in 2004. In 2007, he was honored to begin drumming for a worship team, where he found a new passion for mixing his musical passion with serving God.
