Merrimans' Playhouse Jazz Performance Series presents The Deans List!
The Deans List is a Michiana Jazz combo playing straight ahead swing, blues, ballads, and Latin tunes with their own twist. The group was formed by percussionist Sonny Carreno and guitarist Danny Dean, thus the name. They met as guest musicians at a gig and decided they wanted to form their own band that focused on jazz. Since then the personnel has evolved. Danny has returned to his native Miami. The group currently features Carreno on drums, Sam Que on saxophone, Gabriel Hernandez on piano, and Randy Horst on bass, and can be found playing in regional venues and at the Elkhart Jazz Festival. Guest guitarist Jamie Pawelski will be a joining The Deans List at Merrimans Playhouse.
