Oral History Information
Craig Denny loves band rental night so much, partly because he remembers the own experience as one of his most meaningful. He was eight years old and the team at Quinlan & Fabish Music came to his school with a number of instruments for the children to try. Craig picked the clarinet and went on to gain his degree in music at DePaul, then working as a professional musician for ten years before landing a job at the same musical manufacturer as his first clarinet, Leblanc. When the company was sold to Conn-Selmer, Craig worked to market saxophones before joining St. Louis in 2011 to run the P. Mauriat brand. Now, as the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Craig attends band rental nights as often as he can, knowing just how impactful the evening can be.
