About Strangers Bandleader, Dennis Bloomingdale

Growing up, Denny performed in his own doo-wop band on street corners until he started playing with Strangers. His mother, brother, and sister were all professional singers; his sister was actually the one to originally start Strangers with Denny in 2001 as a classic rock and blues band. She was the lead singer, while Denny concentrated on some lead singing, backups and the harmonica.

When Denny Bloomingdale became Strangers bandleader, he wanted to bring his love for big band music to Strangers and the band eventually outgrew the bar scene with the expansion of their horns section. Thus, they joined BVTLive! as they began working full time in the wedding and special events industry.
