- Where you met Dennis: as the founding lead singer of Styx
- His monster hits: "Lady," "Babe," "Come Sail Away," "Mr. Roboto," "Renegade"
- Why he'll probably answer to the name "Kilroy": Kilroy Was Here, the concept album that spawned "Mr. Roboto," featured DeYoung as the voice of the rebellious protagonist
- His post-Styx life: touring, writing albums such as One Hundred Years from Now, playing the lead singer of a Styx cover band in Hilary Duff's The Perfect Man
- Where else you've heard DeYoung's operatic pipes: in his album of Broadway standards, or on tour with Jesus Christ Superstar
- Joining him in concert: a six-piece band, who helps DeYoung capture the prog/arena-rock magic of a Styx live show
- DeYoung's multi-tasking skills: he not only unleashes his operatic voice on audiences, but also plays keyboard, smiles, and sneaks in games of Minesweeper between songs
Bergen Performing Arts Center
In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
