For over twenty-five years Glenn Dale Fontenot has been performing as a solo artist.
Glenn performs Classic Rock, Country, Oldies/Swamp-Pop, and many Cajun and Zydeco tunes. He has also been known to play and sing many of the most popular Blues, Soul, and Pop songs. He offers many standards from all eras and covers male tunes from George Jones to Kid Rock. Glenn has also created his own version of several female vocalist songs from such artist as Patsy Cline and Brenda Lee. His very popular original songs are requested at every show and included in his performances. Glenn loves to take request and generally plays them immediately.
Fontenot was also in a nation wide touring act called Glenn And Kitty, Musical Duo, from 1998 to 2005. He has always been the front man and lead singer of The Renegades Band, an all live musical variety band. Fontenot has performed nation-wide at countless public venues and private events, appeared on numerous radio and TV programs, and has several original tunes that receive extensive radio air play.
Performing solo, this talented vocalist uses a laptop computer to generate his backup music and he accompanies the mix with an acoustic guitar. The “live electronics” format that he uses is unique in that it produces the sound of an all live band but there is only Glenn on stage. It's not a DJ format and it's not Karaoke but rather a blend of live vocals and rhythm guitar following personalized computerized backing track arrangements, many of which Glenn made himself.
In addition to his musical talents, Glenn is a business marketing and promotion strategist. After being booked, he will advertise your facility or event in multi-media outlets with press releases, hard copy mailing, flyers, emails, and Internet ads.
*Glenn has been one of the top five finalists in the Best Of The Best Acadiana voting in the category of "Best Local Original Music Solo" for three years. In addition, many of Glenn's original songs have been in the top ten of the Reverb Nation Record Chart and two have gone to number one
