Joe Dean 
Banjo, second guitar and bass vocals 

Joe was born on July 18, 1989 in St. Louis, MO. Joe fell in love with music at an early age drawing inspiration from Elvis, Eric Clapton and especially The Eagles. After seeing a broadcast of The Eagles reunion tour in 1995, Joe began asking his parents for a guitar. On his 6th birthday they surprised him with a small acoustic and signed him up for lessons.

Soon Joe began attending mountain dulcimer festivals with his Mom. Not satisfied with playing back-up guitar, Joe began to take classes at the festivals. This led to entering and winning the Illinois State Mountain Dulcimer Championship in 2000. Not long after winning the contest, Joe met Jerry Rosa, a local mandolin player and luthier. Jerry loaned Joe a mandolin and showed him a few chords. Renowned for helping young musicians, Jerry started featuring Joe with his group, The Rosa String Works, at local festivals. Joe gained stage experience and learned a lot about bluegrass music.

In January of 2004 Joe was hired to play mandolin for Bull Harman in his band, Bullseye, during which time Joe recorded his first solo project, “The Thrill of a New Game”. The CD, produced by Harman, featured Joe on mandolin, banjo, and lead vocals along with several guest stars including Dale Perry, Steve Gully, Randy Kohrs, Junior Sisk, Bull Harman, and Jamie Dailey.

In December of 2006 Joe resigned from Bullseye to finish his last year of high school and to pursue other opportunities. In June 2007, he received a call from Jamie Dailey asking him if he would be interested in auditioning for the banjo spot with Dailey & Vincent.
