Dennis Marcellino      

Author of Six Books, Media Personality and Former Member of Sly & The Family Stone; Speaker on Substance Abuse

Dennis Marcellino, a celebrity musician, author and inspirational speaker, is a past member of some top name bands including Sly and the Family Stone (the #1 band in the world in 1970 and voted as one of the top 10 bands of all time by MSNBC), The Elvin Bishop Group and The Tokens, famous for "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." He's also had an internationally bestselling CD under his own name as a sax player, titled "An Evening To Remember."

Besides being a guest on numerous radio and TV shows, Dennis is also the author of 10 books, including Sweeping It Under The Drug; and How To Be The Best You... and have greater confidence, self-esteem and performance in business and personal relationships.

Dennis now deeply cares about affecting people's lives for the better by showing them how to discover that natural living holds a lot more joy, peace, contribution and love. As an entertainer he, (as the peer pressure in his profession dictated), abused alcohol and drugs for 18 years. But that all ended permanently 29 years ago. He also had a problem leaning on (in addition to alcohol and drugs), gambling, food, dysfunctional relationships and other habits along the way to try to get to the positive experiences that life potentially holds. But having found a better, natural way to have them, he has been very inspired to share that "way" so that others can have the better life that is there for them but that they might not see how to get to. And this is not only good for them, but also for their spouses, family, employers, those whom they serve, and the world in general. His presentation also has been found to be helpful by those who want to help others (e.g. family members, friends and employees) who have the problems mentioned here but who desire a better, more productive life. To construct this "way", he's married his backgrounds in psychology, engineering, spirituality and music. As an expression of that, he constructed an Addiction Free Forever program that has helped nearly 2000 people overcome addictions as his program put them on the path to a deeply fulfilling natural life. And many have emailed him to thank him for this invaluable transformation.

Dennis receives top reviews on his programs with corporate, college and non-profit audiences. His fun, entertaining and engaging presentations include music, humor, audience participation coupled with a valuable message.
