Denny Randall

Denny Randall

In the early 60's, saxophonist, Denny Randall performed in Portland, Oregon jazz clubs and theater orchestras. He joined the popular rock group, "Mr. Lucky & the Gamblers" in the mid-60's. After a 30-year break from the music scene, he built a home studio and re-embraced music as a songwriter, engineer and recording artist, focusing on his preferred genre, smooth jazz.

In 2011, he released the original version of "Good Times Ahead", and in 2015, released a new version after completing a project to re-record, remix and remaster all twelve tracks.

In 2012, Denny teamed up with close friend, Tony Kampmann, to form the studio group "The Bamboo Garage". Under that name, the two friends recorded a series of jam sessions which were eventually mixed and mastered into the multi-genre album, "Tune-Up Special", which was released later that year. This album includes a mix of eleven rock, Latin and blues cover songs and one original Hawaiian-Reggae composition, "Makaha Is Home". The lyrics from the latter loosely depict Tony's journey toward finding the perfect oceanfront lot in Hawaii ... and building a bamboo house.

Tony Kampmann "lived the dream" in the late 70's, early 80's as a successful concert promoter. His club and concert venues, included well over 3000 shows featuring artists such as BB King, Ray Charles, Oscar Peterson, The Police, Sting, Johnny Winter, Leon Redbone, Lonnie Liston Smith, etc. For several years, he has been a key member in the band he founded, "The Tonerators".

Liner Notes: The two core members of The Bamboo Garage, Tony Kampmann and Denny Randall, are 2 guys with a few things in common ... a strong interest in music, a touch of creativity, and a desire to avoid starvation ... by NOT becoming full-time musicians. Tony Kampmann lived the dream for a few years (late 70's, early 80's) as a successful concert promoter. His club and concert venues, included well over 3000 shows featuring artists such as BB King, Ray Charles, Oscar Peterson, The Police, Sting, Johnny Winter, Leon Redbone, Lonnie Liston Smith, etc. For the past several years, he has been a key member in the band he founded, "The Tonerators". Their Myspace page sums it up, "The Tonerators are all about having a good time, DFTB, fund raising, helping the Friends of the Poor, benefits, Music, surfing, skiing, travel, and rock and roll ! " Denny Randall was a Portland, Oregon saxophonist performing in local jazz clubs and theater orchestras during his teens. In the early-mid 60's, he played sax with the popular rock group, "Mr. Lucky & the Gamblers".

Vintage recordings by Mr. Lucky & the Gamblers and recent originals by Denny Randall are available on various popular online sites.
