The Band




Dennis Buldo

Although Dennis was born and raised in San Jose, his parents were from Italy...and so, naturally, his first instrument was the accordion. After graduating to the clarinet, Dennis came to realize that there was more than just Italian music out there, and he's never looked back. Dennis has played in numerous bands, including Odia Coates and the Entire Phase, which played the Harrahs Club circuit, as well as the Soultons, Open Road, and the all-original band, Franklin Dawes. He has also worked as a studio musician and has recorded saxophone parts and solos for other bands' records. Eventually, Dennis settled down, got a real job, married his high school sweetheart, and has continued to play with local bands ever since. Currently, Dennis plays bass guitar and sings bass vocals for the California Beach Boys and plays saxophone for Big Mike & the HartBeats.
