Dennis Warner continues to tour all 50 states and beyond averaging 100+ dates a year. Folk DJ named him one of the top artists of 2012 and listed Seeds as one of the top CD’s of that year. Midnight Special host Rich Warren designated Seeds as his “CD Pick of the Week” on his nationally syndicated show.
Warner is a two-time McKnight Foundation Artist Award winner and three-time Kerrville finalist. 2018 was a big year for Dennis.

Besides his original music, Warner is widely admired for his moving interpretations of songs written by others.

Besides being a gifted musician, Dennis Warner is also an outstanding entertainer, cleverly blending ballads, up-tempo songs, audience participation and humor into a memorable event. He is noted for his warm stage presence and ability to connect with his audience.
Though he calls Minnesota home, Warner loves to travel and has visited every state, touring solo and also with his band “the D’s”. On and off the stage, Dennis is personable and good-humored. When not working on his music, he can be found sailing, eating ice cream or listening to a Minnesota Twins baseball game. On a good day, he's doing all three.
