Denzeity was conceived as the vehicle through which Simon Densley could get his music out to the public through live shows and recording. Started without even a name in July 2017 to showcase Simon's standout recordings from a few years earlier, the band has evolved and constantly improved with each new musician in a sucsession of line up changes. The name Denzeity was decided on in March and the band has since been performing Simon's original material, while working on new material as well.




When the history of Denzeity is written, it will recall a key moment was when Simon met Mike Gibbons and pursuaded him to join the band. It already included Paige, Marcel and a keyboard player called Mark who would later be replaced by Gary Cunningham but he was after a second guitarist. Mike Gibbons was a professional session guitarist who wasn't looking for a band but was so impressed with History that he decided to make contact.


Mike's contribution was more than playing guitar through. As a proficient session guitarist and former lecturer in music theory, Mike pushed for some major arrangement changes to make the songs stand out even more. He pursuaded Simon to radically alter the arrangment of 'If You Can't Join Them Beat Them'. It turned what was a good album track into a likely hit. He then did the same with Chasing Rainbows and then Under Siege. Simon's songs with Mike's arrangments appeared to be a killer combination, together with a band capable of making them sound professional.
