Dennis Wolfe

San Pedro's newest musical masterpiece, "Down by the Ocean," has finally been released by Dennis Wolfe - one of "La Isla Bonita's" most popular singer/songwriter/performers. Famous for his hit "Just another Gringo in Belize," Dennis compiles his "honky-tonk music," with a little blues (Darker Blues) and blue grass (If The Creek Don't Rise) on this most recent collection of sweet and sassy songs.

    Recorded in-house at Sunshine Studios, Dennis Wolfe describes his second compilation as "a reflection of my roots," which began in the swamplands of South Georgia and North Florida. He explained that most of the songs were inspired by his experiences in Belize and reveal a variety of musical styles including Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Country and Western, and good old Rock and Roll. "Five of the songs were originally written as an instructional guide for this guy I was teaching. He needed different examples of musical styles for the guitar, so I came up with my own, Wolfe told The San Pedro Sun. "Elvis is Alive" and the title song, "Down by the Ocean" are said to be the local favorites. His signature song, "Gringo in Belize," performed by world-renowned recording artist Jerry Jeff Walker, is also included on Maestro Wolfe's latest effort.

    Always a "work of art in progress," Wolfe commented he is already working on a remix of these songs with a variety of local artists comprising guitar, banjo, drum and harmonica players. The artwork for "Down by the Ocean" was created by Wolfe's wife and partner, Dulce.

    "Down by the Ocean" is available on CD at finer gift shops and hotels on the island. Persons interested in mail ordering Wolfe's latest collection may do so by contacting him at denwolfe@btl.net

    Dennis Wolfe resides on Ambergris Caye with his wife Dulce and two children, Melody (18) and Dennisito (12).
