Memory Road is based in Crossville, TN, near most of their performances. However, since the group’s inception in 2013, they have performed in venues throughout and beyond Eastern Tennessee, as far north as Ohio and as far as south as Florida.

Their style is truly reminiscent of the times when you could clearly understand the lyrics and the songs had real melodies that audiences can sing along with. And, importantly, Memory Road interacts with audiences as smoothly and easy going as any other group you may have seen.

Memory Road is a vocal duo that features tight, creative harmonies. They become a trio when they are accompanied by a ‘live’ saxophone that adds an authentic groove to their oldies show . The guys also, often, play additional instruments along with their custom created back-up music tracks. By using the latest in MIDI and digital technology to provide a large, full band back-up sound, clients get a very big, but not loud, sound for the money. This MIDI operation also makes it easy to control the volume so that guests can still have a conversation without having to yell above the music. This makes Memory Road a good fit for venues where a large band would not be appropriate. Nearly every venue that has hired Memory Road has booked a return performance.

No matter the venue or event … Memory Road always delivers a personable, fun and entertaining performance.

Meet the Memory Road Performers …

Dennis Hill Head Shot

Dennis Hill has been singing professionally for nearly 50 years, starting out in Michigan and then Indiana before moving to Crossville. You will be hard pressed to find a more versatile vocalist. Dennis can navigate vocal styles from classic country to 80’s hair-band rock to rhythm and blues, then back to crooning the standards. Dennis is the primary lead vocalist as well as the musical coordinator and organizer. He was one of the original founders of the group and his outstanding vocal talents have been the major factor in Memory Road’s rise in popularity. His 30+ year career in broadcasting has also prepared him well for Memory Road’s amiable stage performances.

Ken Duller Head Shot

Ken Duller is the other half of the Memory Road ‘Duo’ configuration, performing along with Dennis Hill. Ken began his musical career nearly 60 years ago in his home state of Wisconsin. He played bass and guitar and sang his way through high school and college, honing his craft in the 60’s with a garage band, the “Stingrays”, and in the 70’s & 80’s with a power trio, “Night Watch”. As a member of “God’s Country” in 2004, Ken wrote, arranged, and recorded songs with fellow band members in Nashville, Tennessee at Doorknob Records, with well known producer, Gene Kennedy. Ken currently owns “Diamond Lake Productions” where he writes, arranges, produces and records various projects.

Make it a ‘Trio’ … Add a Saxophone!

Glen Holverson Head Shot

If you’d like to add an authentic, groovin’, sax to your oldies show, Glen Holverson is “the man”! Glen is one of the foremost saxophone players in Tennessee. His versatility allows him to easily fit into any type of custom oldies show you can imagine, from pop to country to standards. Glen started his musical career at the ripe old age of 15 and right after high school he toured with “Buddy And The Citations”. After that, Glen spent 31 years in the Chicago area playing up to 5 nights a week, highlighted by some TV appearances and recording studio work. When living in Florida, there were gigs at Universal Studios and Disney theme parks. Since moving to Cookeville, TN, Glen has worked with many of the top bands in this part of Tennessee.

Updates on Previous Memory Road Group Configurations

Gibbs Head Shot

Gibbs Lukoskie (aka ‘Mr. Gibbs’) passed away on September 14, 2022, at the age of 81, after a battle with COPD. He had retired from performing in early 2020. Gibbs made the most of an incredibly interesting life. He will be remembered fondly by everyone who knew him. His influence on Memory Road will live on. He will, truly, be missed.

It was Gibbs, along with Dennis Hill, who founded Memory Road back in 2013. They performed strictly as a duo and occasional trio (with Sax man Glen Holverson) until, in 2017, they added additional members to form a larger 6 to 7 piece ‘show group’. After Gibbs’ retirement and the COVID pandemic break, Memory Road was reduced in size, back to the duo/trio configuration.

Individually, Gibbs started performing back in the early 60’s with a group called “Sunny & The Four Shades” at several venues throughout New England and the East Coast, including the iconic Peppermint Lounge in New York City. Gibbs played saxophone back then, but when he returned to public performing in 2009, he began playing guitar and singing ‘lowdown’ bass parts.
