Denny Jones was born and raised in Wichita Falls, Texas. He attended East Texas State University where he studied music performance. During four consecutive summer seasons, he marched with two drum & bugle corps: SkyRyders and Sun Coast Sound. He arranged and taught for four years with the Lone Star drum & bugle corp. In addition to percussion, Denny is an accomplished pianist and vocalist.
Denny has been with the Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestra for over 26 years. He regularly plays in several ensembles spanning a variety of genres, including big bands, church bands, jazz quartets and rock/funk bands, among others.
He is as comfortable in tux and bowtie with the symphony as he is at an outdoor concert in the park playing rock or jazz on a drum set. One of his most enjoyable activities is arranging, conducting and teaching the percussion students at Wichita Falls High School. As a member of the Percussive Arts Society, Denny stays current on the best tools, advice and teaching methods in the world of percussion today.
Denny owns and operates a number of businesses, including LHWebTek, LLC (providing software development solutions for handheld devices, enterprise/desktop and web enabled applications) and G2 Ad Group (a full-service advertising agency). However, music has always been his first love and he enjoys being able to share this passion with younger generations through performance and teaching.
