Dennis & the Menace was primarily a studio group which recorded an EP (unreleased) in the summer of 1980.  The project was recorded at Summit Studio in Seattle, engineered by Ron Ganges and produced by Paul Speer. Of the four tracks on the EP, one was an updated version of "That Sound" by the Viceroys, and the other three were original tunes by Dennis Caldirola and Ned Neltner from Jr. Cadillac.

Interestingly, the group only performed live once - at a teen club in Tacoma as the opening act for "Denny & the Jets," the same four musicians doing 50's material with slicked-back hair.
