The Dean Martinis

The Dean Martinis

 Nashville, Tennessee, USA
BandBluesJazz

Put these cats in the mix and you'll have an instant lip-smacking, hand-clapping, boogie-your-woogie party. Stirring up a brew of jump blues, swinging jazz, and 1950's New Orleans R&B, The Dean Martinis keep the dance floor jumping, yet manage to give the wallflowers something to hang their hats on.

Beyond The Edge – Matt Charette

“You guys individually have amazing talent, and when you all come together, it defines synergy.” - Matt Charette, owner, Beyond the Edge, 112 S 11th Street, Nashville, TN 37206

Ain't That a Kick in the Head – Nashville Scene

Unlike most of America, we take our lounge music very, very seriously: our cocktails are like communion, our Esquivel back-tattoos a consecration of our faith. So we were pleasantly surprised to find that The Dean Martinis have all the swing and schmaltz of their namesake, St. Dino of Boozetopia. Avoiding the austerity of Enoch Light but lacking the exoticism of Martin Denny (what, no bird noises?), The Dean Martinis put the easy back into easy listening. On songs like “Library Anne” and “Monica Erotica” the Dean Martinis pour on the dry wit while shaking and stirring some sauce-y swing. Ba-dum-PAH! Thank you, thank you, we’ll be here all week. Remember, the 7:30 show is always different from the 9:30.
