Joey has been entertaining for over 30 years,
starting at the age of seven. His first professional
gig was at the age of thirteen. He remembers
making $10 with a folk band that his junior
high music teacher had formed. "I still
have the picture of me holdin’ the ten
spot with a big cheesy grin."
Joey joined his first rock band in 1977 as
the lead singer/guitarist with the band "Black
Velvet". Joey remembers playing shows with
the band that consisted of only 4 or 5 songs.
In 1983 he formed a hard rock band called "Detour"
for a high school talent show. The band blew
the roof off the gym and winning with covers
by Van Halen, Rush, and the Scorpions.
While Joey was a senior in high school he auditioned
for a Top 40 band that was working on the club
circuit. He got the job and was thrilled to
be making more money than his friends flipping
Over the last few years Joey has pulled together
some of the most talented and experienced musicians
on stage to back "JOEY JAMES DEAN".
The show this group brings to the stage is unmatched
anywhere else "Period". Their song
list includes all the crowd favorites along
with hits that other bands won’t even
dare to attempt.
Booking "JOEY JAMES DEAN" will turn
your event into a "PARTY", and make
your party the "EVENT"!
