Dean Crawford is more than just a gifted performer with a great voice; he renders traditional and contemporary country tunes with deep conviction, charisma and energy. Dean is also a talented songwriter noting Dolly Parton as a great influence to his writing style, with Garth Brooks and Conway Twitty as his favorites.
Dean Crawford and the mighty Dunn’s River Band, through hard work and perseverance, have emerged as the Mid-Atlantic’s premier Country/Southern Rock group. A faithful and growing fan base is what keeps this group on the rise with sold out appearances and souvenir sales that eclipse any other group in the region.
Dean has written over 500 songs, produced four cd's and has sold over 20,000 copies locally and independently along the way!
With regular gigs at local clubs, outdoor festivals, and private events, Dean and his band has extended their reach to places like Bally's Wild Wild West Saloon in Atlantic City, MD Live! Casino, Charles Town Races & Slots, Pimlico Race Track in Baltimore, Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis, Rams Head Live in Baltimore, they were requested to represent Maryland Country Music at Dick Gelfman's Ride Across Maryland, they have also performed for the soldiers at Aberdeen Proving Grounds (APG) several times, the Wounded Warriors Projects, Truckin' for Troops, as well as the Special Olympics. Dean was also chosen by the Governor to represent the country lifestyle and genre through his music and is bolstered by live performances on FOX, WMAR and WJZ Channel 13 morning shows. He enjoys air time on WPOC 93.1, WFRE 99.9 and WMJQ 98.7.
Dean and Dunn's have opened up for notable Nashville greats such as Neal McCoy, Buddy Jewel, Montgomery Gentry, Jamie O'Neil, Bucky Covington and we were called upon and honored to accept the invitation to open for the greatest country singer of all time, in his last public appearance.....the Possum, Mr. George Jones!!
In a time when many country artists seem to blend in with a similar look and sound, Dean Crawford and the Dunn's River Band stand out as distinctly different in these two most important and defining categories.
Style: THR artist Dean Crawford and the Mighty Dunn's River Band, the hardest working, most booked country music act in Maryland. They've got the fiddle, they've got the steel, when it comes to Kickin' Country they're the real deal!
