Dennis Martin was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, moved to Grafton when he was seven years old, and presently resides in Florida.
Both his parents were musicians, his father, Martin Anderson, played guitar and his mother, Ellen, played guitar, piano and harmonica. While still in grade school, he received his first guitar, and with the help of his mother, soon learned to play.
At the age of thirteen, he joined a traveling assembly group sponsored by the Grafton School System. During this time the show traveled throughout Massachusetts performing at various high schools.
In the mid to late 50's, and continuing into the early 70's, the "Dennis Martin Show" traveled extensively, touring the United States and Canada. performing at Military Installations, County & State Fairs, Ranches and Night clubs, as well as frequent appearances on radio and Television.
Dennis and his band, "The Fugitives", were part of the regular cast on The Barndance Jamboree, a radio show broadcast live from Indian Ranch in Webster, Massachusetts. He could also be found at Lonestar Ranch in Reedsferry, New Hampshire during "ALL MAINE DAY", an annual event that featured top country artists such as Dick Curless, Hal Lone Pine, and Curtis Johnson to name a few. He was the only entertainer to be included from outside the state of Maine.
He has appeared with many stars from the Grand Old Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, as well as the "WWVA Saturday Night Jamboree" in Wheeling, West Virginia.
In the early seventies he made a guest appearance on The Grand Old Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.
In 1967 he recorded "Alone With You" and "Dark Hollow" which became his most requested songs.
His most proud contribution to Country Music is the "New England Country Music Club", which he founded in 1967.
On April 1, 2001 he founded the "South Florida Country Music Club", which has grown at a faster rate than anticipated, and has gained the interest of musicans and fans not only locally but from as far south as Miami to Nashville and as far north as New England.
"Dennis' talent and experience is assurance in itself of the quality performances he has been giving his public. Any show on which he appears leaves no doubt in the minds of the audience that his time has been well spent in his chosen profession of entertainment".
