Band Members

Denny1.jpg

Denny  Warner

Vocals / Guitar

Denny started with the band in early 2010, and what a ride it has been.  His incredible voice brings to life all the great ballads of the sixties such as "Unchained Melody", Crying" by Roy Orbison and "Let it be Me", just to name a few!

When he cranks up the pipes to rock out he nails songs like "Mony Mony", "Travelin' Band", "Jump Jive and  Wail" and "Runaway".  Wait! That's not all! Denny brings back Elvis (or maybe he IS Elvis) like the ole hound dog he is!

Denny is a great vocalist and entertainer in addition to being a musical history buff.  He shares many highlights of all the bands and tunes he performs throughout a performance.

Chuck Hackett

Vocals / Bass Guitar

Chuck is the newest member of The Summer of 65, and brings his talents to the band as our bass player and harmony vocals.  He's so new we don't have a picture yet, but we will add more details over the coming weeks!  Please welcome Chuck as a great addition to our lineup.  

Mike1.jpg

Mike Bestul

Vocals / Guitar

Mike, aka "The Beast", is a proven performer and prides himself on duplicating all the great licks within the numerous classics performed by The Summer of 65. In addition to his guitar prowess, it's evident he's enjoying himself on stage as he brings out the "Beast" in all of us when he sings renditions of Buddy Holly, Mitch Ryder and more!

His multi-style capability provides original lead riffs ranging from rockabilly to surf to Memphis soul and blues. Mike's attention to detail and equipment brings the absolute cleanest sound around. He is an unabashed "Fender guy" and understands 60's guitar work like no other! He's a "Beast" and it shows with every Summer of '65 performance. 

Barb1.jpg

Barb Garries Longstreth

Drums

Barb is our newest member, and she holds down the rhythm section with perfect timing and the driving beat that our fans have come to expect!  She also gets the most photographs taken during performances by our audience members who dig what she is doing.  Barb is an experienced drummer who not only performs with The Summer of 65, but also provides drumming instruction for her many students.
