Danny Dean achieved commercial success at the golden age of MTV with a plethora of music videos and nationwide radio rotaton small college radio to the likes of California's KROQ with his post-punk band Easter, notorious for lineup changes that regularly featured Mike Ness early Social Distortion and a late Brent Liles early Social Distortion and post-Easter Agent Orange fame. He is eminent for instigating Neo-Rockabilly with his band Danny Dean and the Homewreckers and his modern 80's twist on vintage rock and roll throughout the Pre-Nascent Rockabilly Revival and the Neo-Swing Revival touring touring with established acts like The Specials, English Beat, Billy Idol to name a few. Currently Danny Dean is involved in many band projects between touring with some pretty big acts he has also opened a chain of analog recording studios from New York to California.
