Deanna Dean, bass

Member Spotlight

 

She has been singing barbershop for 23 years and loves her job as a freelance court reporter except when it interferes with rehearsals. “I hate when that happens,” says Deanna Dean, bass, adding “Retirement is starting to sound better and better every year!”

Born in Alabama, her parents moved back to their native New Jersey where she lived until she turned 34. When she was little, her nickname was “DeeDee,” which she hated. However, she married Ken Dean in 1993, and then one of her court reporter friends started referring to her as “DD”.  This time it stuck and she is now fine with it. “Clearly,” she says, “I have come full circle!”

DD has an extensive musical background: piano from ages 5 to 12; xylophone/bells in concert band and alto sax in marching band. She says she discovered her love for a cappella singing when she was in grade 7, and was a member of select choirs during the rest of her school days.  Upon graduation from high school, she went to business school to learn court reporting.

She and her husband have one son, Eddie, who turns 20 this year. Ken’s parents also live with them and they built an addition in 2006. “We also have a Snowshoe Siamese named Renegade,” she says, “who occasionally shows up on ZOOM!” She loves video games, and during the lockdown, she found a group to play with, “so I have some new friends that I hope to meet in person someday.”

DD initially discovered barbershop when a local New Jersey group sang at an outdoor concert and she wanted so much to join them. “I attended rehearsals and passed my audition,” she explains, “but again my schedule interfered as I was just starting my work career. It took 10 years for me to find my way back, and I am so grateful I did! I started out as a baritone because I LOVE singing harmony and ended up as a bass about five years in.”

She learned about NEVIH through Gayle Ellwood and our late Bonnie Boutin, who were members. “Due to a change in circumstances at my former group, I needed a new chorus home, and NEVIH was a perfect fit!” she notes. In addition to singing with the chorus, she is currently a Member-at-Large on the Board of Directors. However, she points out that her “true love is tech,” so she is branching out as a member of the communications committee, hoping to “contribute some experience.”

DD says that NEVIH has “all the things I love about barbershop—namely, learning and singing together, laughing (as much as possible!) and making lifelong friends!”  Asked where she sees the chorus headed in the next 10 years, she replies that with Renée and Samantha “at the helm, and all our talented folks singing Steve’s incredible arrangements and reaping the benefits of his coaching, the sky’s the limit!”
