Biography: Dean Dollar
It was not uncommon for Dean Dollar to see Jerry Reed, Boots Randolph or Gladys Knight jamming in his living
room as a youngster. His mother often hosted many of the music industry's early greats in their home. During the early 50's, Dean's mother and aunt produced a television show "Barn Dance Theater" that aired in Atlanta, and his mother was a recording artist on Decca Records in the early late 50s through the mid-60s.
With this early exposure, is it no surprise that music became Dean's career focus. As a teenager, he began to play the guitar and write songs, and later formed the Dean Dollar Band, with single releases airing on local and regional radio stations. Dean has since always maintained a quality band, and has enlisted many top ranked musicians over the years: Barry "BB" Borden (Mother's Finest), Jody Payne (Willie Nelson), Kerry Creasy and Elvin Bishop (Jerry Garcia), Randy Sorrells (Montgomery Gentry), and Steve Hawkins and Leon Russell (Joe Cocker), among others. The group has been touring the country since 1990 and has opened for such notable groups such as The Charlie Daniels Band, Waylon Jennings and Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
The Dean Dollar Band is known nationwide, from New York to Los Angeles. Dean has a unique relationship with the audience that is genuinely personal. The Dean Dollar Band are always in high demand because of the high level of entertainment, music and musicianship he and his band presents - and, because Dean is known for bringing the party!
