Dennis Quaid & The Sharks
Best known as a actor, Dennis Quaid’s career on film spans a wide variety of dramatic and comedic roles. Some of his notable credits include Breaking Away, The Right Stuff, Wyatt Earp, The Rookie, The Day After Tomorrow, Traffic, Vantage Point, Footloose, Frequency, The Parent Trap, Yours, Mine & Ours, Soul Surfer, and Far From Heavy, for which he won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor, and several other accolades.
In his spare time, Quaid writes songs and performs with his band The Sharks. But make no mistake, the band has long been performing to rave review, and Quaid is not just another actor turned rocker – he’s a bonafide rock star. Quaid said the shows are as much fun for those in attendance as they are for the band. “(The audiences) have a blast, which is all we want,” he said. “I make a complete and utter fool of myself. I think that’s the only way to have fun (onstage), instead of trying to pretend to be cool and all the rest of that stuff.”
