Deni Bonet and Chris Flynn are a New York-based Americana, folk-rock duo whose blend of voices, virtuoso violin, guitar, and humor have entertained and captivated audiences from Carnegie Hall to the White House.

“The whole is greater than the sum of the parts”. So it is with Deni Bonet & Chris Flynn. As individual artists, they have more than made their mark in music. As a duo, they have created something extra, engaging and extremely entertaining.

Bonet’s voice and violin, and Flynn’s guitar and voice, have echoed through the United Nations and the White House, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Mountain Stage. They have shared stages with REM, Cyndi Lauper, Mundy, The Chieftains, Warren Zevon, Sarah McLachlan, Luke Bloom, Cáit O'Riordan and many others.

Their audiences have ranged from festivalgoers, to Presidents and the FBI. They've performed their original music as soloists with several full symphony orchestras. For the last five years, they have melded that skill, experience and musicality on stages across Europe and America, from festivals to house concerts, libraries to radio stations. Their lively and humorous shows are full of self-penned songs and instrumentals, and the warm banter of two people completely at one on the stage. The new album, ‘Off The Record’ is due out in 2024.

Audiences will be uplifted and captivated by profound musicianship, energetic performance, hilarious anecdotes and superbly-crafted compositions, bonded by the special chemistry that could only come from two such experienced and respected artists and close friends.

"Together they remind me George Burns and Gracie Allen, or Lucy and Ricky; their banter, charisma and musicality combine to create a playful, lively, sometimes surprising performance."~ Linda Bolton (Cozy Cabin Concerts)

"Deni Bonet and Chris Flynn’s performances are irresistible for their charisma and musicality.” ~ John Platt WFUV 90.7 FM, Public Radio from Fordham University

"Whenever Deni plays our room, the fire department is on high alert as she is incredibly smoking hot on that trademark blue fiddle. A must see! “~ Jamey’s House of Music, Philadelphia, PA

"Engaging, multi-talented violinist Deni Bonet. Unlike most violinists, she is not nailed to the floor. And she doesn’t shy away from going head-to-head with the guitar player, having fun and breaking an erstwhile-stodgy image of the grand old instrument.”~ Forbes Magazine

“Deni, thank you for an amazing, unforgettable show. Violin is electric so are YOU! Your connection with Chris was beautiful to hear and watch! You show brought our audience to their feet with uproarious applause.”~ Naomi Miller - Rosen Theater for the Performing Arts.
