For anyone who lived in Springfield during the late sixties through early seventies, Denzil and Jonathan was an act that was well known in the area. Not only did they perform on the Intercollegiate Coffee House Circuit for Southwest Missouri State, they performed for many Southwest Missouri State functions. If they weren’t entertaining for a college event, or at one of the local country clubs or coffee houses, you could always catch them playing every Wednesday evening at the at the old Shakey’s Pizza Parlor that was a hot spot in Springfield. If you like the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Jimmy Buffett, Willie Nelson, Janis Joplin, the Eagles, John Denver, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, James Taylor, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Peter, Paul and Mary, as well as many other groups of the late sixties and early seventies, then a performance by Denzil and Jonathan is a must hear. You might even find yourself singing along.
