Primarily a drummer, most of Dean's work was done for 20 years as a drummer with the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps. Training at the Armed Forces School of Music also turned into a 16 year run as a private drum/music/marching instructor. Drum set in Jazz, R & B, and rock bands, guitar and bass guitar in a few jazz and rock bands gives one a different perspective on the songs.  So when the band was in need of a bass player, I volunteered to make the move, and I haven't looked back!  I have loved learning this instrument and playing the Lords music with these guys!!!!!
