What the critics have said.
Stratospheerius does not play what you want; it plays things you didn't know you wanted. - Dan Roth, Progression
a whirling dervish of vibrant creativity. He is one of those folks who seem to have a limitless supply of intriguing ideas. Deninzon is the embodiment of a true progressive artist… - Eric Harabadian, Downbeat
combines solid songwriting and tradition with extraordinary electric violin work and the sounds of the future. - Angel Romero, Progressive Rock Central
Joe Deninzon brings the process of bringing the violin into the 21st century by making the music and technology of the contemporary electric guitarist available to the curious and willing violinist. - Mimi Rabson, Strings Magazine
Think a bit of Zappa, the Dixie Dregs or Blues Traveler, with the violin being the focal point. Violinist & singer Joe Deninzon's talents are flat out phenomenal, and the progressive rock tapestry he weaves around himself is carried out to perfection by his amazing band. - Mark Waterbury, Music Morsels
Deninzon shows how he has earned the nickname the Jimi Hendrix of violin as he tears threw a distortion heavy solo that points more in the direction of Guns N Roses Slash than Yo Yo Ma. - Justin Scro , Cashbox Magazine
Memorable hooks, gravity-defying instrumental prowess and a kitchen sink move toward rock If Bela Fleck and Frank Zappa had a love child in outer space, they might grow up to sound like these guys do. - David Budin, CoolCleveland
