Wilds And Associates Welcomes DEAN To Gospel Music FanFair

Gospel Music FanFair welcomes DEAN, May 9-14, 2022, at The Center for Rural Development, Somerset KY.

DEAN is a family gospel group from Panama City, FL and is made up of Tony Dean, his wife Tina and their sons Jimmy and Noah. 

Tony began traveling and working in the ministry 42 years ago at the age of eleven. He was the drummer and sang harmony for The Doorway Singers. At the age of 16, Tony began to sing lead and found a new love, the piano. The piano quickly landed him in local studios playing sessions for a great number of artists. After spending the next twenty years in the coal mines and leading worship at several Churches in Kentucky, the Lord called Tony back out to minister on the road. 

 In 2012 Tony along with his sons formed the group The Tony Dean Family. The title track to their only album "Consume Me" debuted on the Singing News Top 80 Chart. Nearly one year later, Tony wrote the song "You Can't Tell Me I'm Dying".  That song and video have reached millions of people and have inspired thousands of testimonies over the years and still do today. 

 The group revamped in 2015 adding Tina with Tony and Jimmy. The three of them decided to change the group's name to “DEAN”, signed with Chapel Valley and recorded their first all family original project. “When God Speaks” included many charting songs and several top 40’s on Singing News and Christian Voice. In 2019, Noah joined the group as their drummer. 

 In 2021, Tina and Tony founded and began to Pastor The Sanctuary Of Hope Revival Center in Panama City where Noah also serves as the drummer. Jimmy is the Worship Pastor @Harvest Worship Center. They enjoy being able to come back as a group to travel and minister together. They are excited about the new project due to release this Spring titled “SCARS”. The title song from that project is currently #4 on the Christian Voice Chart.
