Coming soon to Arts on the Lake


Deni Bonet is a pop/rock singer/songwriter and classically trained violinist who has recorded and performed with R.E.M., Sarah McLachlan, Cyndi Lauper, Scissor Sisters, and Warren Zevon among many others. She was an original member of the cast of the nationally syndicated NPR radio show “Mountain Stage”; singing and performing in her own right and accompanying guests on the show. Deni left the show to pursue a solo career, with a mission to prove that there is more to the violin than concertos and hoedowns. She has performed at Carnegie Hall, the United Nations, Lilith Fair and the White House for President Obama, the First Lady and Vice-President Biden. Deni Bonet has become an in-demand act, headlining various festivals, performing arts centers, clubs, colleges and international venues. Her music has been featured on HBO, NBC, American Airlines, several film and modern dance projects, and has been described by the Wall Street Journal as like “Sheryl Crow meets the B-52's".


Wall Street Journal
“Despite her classical training, [Deni Bonet] keeps her melodies simple; the tunes are as catchy as any Top 40 radio song, but with occasional hints of adult depth …like Sheryl Crow meets the B52’s. One of Ms. Bonet’s strong selling points is her stage presence, which mixes the attitude of a rock star with the concentration of a classically trained concert violinist”


Rob Kemp, Time Out New York
“Deni Bonet’s music evokes Fairport crossed with the Gin Blossoms’ rhythm section with glib lyrics. She could become huge”


Jim Sullivan, Boston Globe
“Sunshine may be the sexiest, sauciest, most life-affirming song of the year”
