Denny Scott

After 22 years as a band director, Denny has retired from teaching school to dedicate all of his time to Naples Park Music and Artist Bay. He is one of the pioneers in offering steel band in middle and high schools, a program now endorsed by the MENC: The National Association for Music Education. Aside from being the house guitarist for the “Solid Gold” Andy Gibb and Marilyn McCoo show, Denny has also performed in Las Vegas backing iconic artists such as Reba McIntyre, Drifters, Lee Greenwood, Coasters, and many more. He’s even in the Rockabilly Hall of Fame after touring on and off with Bill Haley for ten years.

Oswaldo Ventura

Born in Peru, Oswaldo Ventura studied Mural and Fresco painting at the University of Fine Arts in Lima. There, he developed a unique style and texture in his artwork and went on to graduate Cum-Laude. The warmth of the people and the rich colors of his native Peru are captured in each stroke of the brush. Painting in the medium of acrylics on canvas, Oswaldo’s abstracts gesture energy with both strong colors and pastels, which always come together in harmony. He has received numerous awards, and his work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across South America, Europe, Central America, and the United States. He has also been featured on the cover of "Expressions" magazine and had an article in "N," Naples Magazine. He has even exhibited in Collier County Library, an artist’s tour which benefited the Naples Museum of Art.
