About the Diving Duck CD

Dean Richard spent 17 years playing music full-time in bars, clubs, weddings, hotels, parties, and just about any type of social gathering where music was played. During that time he did over 3000 performances. There were gigs at beer-bar dives, juke box joints and Holiday Inn hotels. There were stays in every type of hotel from five-star to subterranean refuge. Finally after 17 years of living that life, he decided it was enough. He got a day job, stopped traveling, and with his wife had two wonderful children. The job was going all right, the children were great, and life seemed pretty good. But, there was one thing that just wouldn’t go away, and that was the desire to make music. The desire to create music that was emotional, powerful, and unique never stopped. He continued to record in his home studio in his spare time, and tried to create music that was both intense and emotional. The Diving Duck CD is the result of those efforts
