Dean Richardson is known as Deano to most all local country and bluegrass musicians in the pacific
northwest. During the last 15 years, Deano has been heavily involved in promoting many local bands who
have become very well known. He was a regular on the Country Gold Network with other musicians, along
with Hillbilly Roy and Dakotah during the earlier years. Then he went on to running the Orting bluegrass
shows at the Orting soldiers home for 5 years, which is still talked about as being one of the greatest
shows ever put on there. Deano opened the first bluegrass shows at the Olympia farmers market, and was
chosen to be their emcee the first four years. He is currently a regular emcee at the Mount St. Helens
Bluegrass festival in Toledo Washington, put on by The Washington Bluegrass Association, which Deano
is a former president. Their board of directors recently appointed him an official representative of the W B A.

His Live PrairieGrass radio show on The Right Country radio network from Studio L was a huge success with eight (8) Bands
and many professional musiocians. PrairieGrass is already scheduled for May 5th & 6th 2012 at the Yelm Moose.
