The Deni Starr Band


 

Band Members:

Deni Starr – lead singer/harmonica/den mother
Band leader Deni Starr is a dynamic vocalist with a powerful and soulful voice. After a serious medical scare seven years ago, Deni heeded the wake-up call and decided to take singing lessons and pursue her desire to become a singer in a band, something she had always wanted to do but never got around to pursuing. She currently studies with Steve Whiteman, lead vocalist of KIX, and covers a wide range of styles including R&B, and various styles of rock. Deni’s got a rock & roll heart, and you can hear it come through loud and clear every time she steps up to the microphone to sing.


Larry Younkins – lead & rhythm guitar/vocals
Larry started playing guitar at an early age and was influenced by the guitar greats of the day, including: Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Carlos Santana, Brian May and Jimi Hendrix. During his formative years, he played in the popular rock band ‘Mama Kin’. Since then he has played in a variety of bands including Damn Jam Crew, Fast Eddie and the Slowpokes, Scorpion Rose, and The Grinders. He brings many years of stage experience to the Deni Starr Band and his interlocking lead work with fellow guitarist Elvin Cartegena is one of the band’s sonic trademarks.

Rus Eyering – bass/vocals


Stanley Hall – drums, drums, and nothing but drums
In the words of a fellow musician, Stan puts the F U into “fun.” Take Tito Puente and Keith Moon and put them in a blender and this is what you get. His philosophy? “It’s all about the beat.”
