Quality musicianship is the foundation of DBM. Dennis Bailey, the founder and president, started his music career when he formed his own band at the age of 13.
“I remember growing up in Western Pennsylvania and hearing the saxophone on many of the early Rock & Roll records. The way it sounded like a voice made me immediately realize that was what I wanted to do so I began taking classes when I was 10 years old.“
Making a career as a saxophonist, Dennis performed in local bands, regional and national dance bands, show bands, and participated in many other performances such as big band acts and studio sessions with other artists. He’s worked with and opened for Motown artists such as the Marvelettes and Jr. Walker and shared the stage with other names such as Frankie Avalon, The Kingston Trio, Bobby Rydell, Bo Diddley, J.J. Jackson, and many others. With over 50 years in the music industry, both as performer and booking agent, Dennis is extremely well versed in event entertainment, from high quality bands and musicians to the sound and lighting production. Knowledge of the industry is a key component to the success of DBM and sets us apart as an entertainment agency that specializes in live music performances.
All of the musicians we work with are experienced professionals. Performing is not a hobby for them, it is their livelihood. In a sea of talent it can be difficult and time consuming to try to find the appropriate entertainment for your event but our years of experience and extensive knowledge allows us to be a filter and provide the highest quality entertainment and live music available. No endless searches, no wondering if the band is going to show up or cancel last minute, no questioning as to whether or not it’s going to sound good. When DBM is involved you can be assured that you are receiving the best entertainment available for your budget.
