Deron began his musical journey as a young kid in the Midwest by singing in the church choir with his parents. A short while later he began to learn the piano, guitar, and then the drums. He played in the marching band and orchestra in school before joining several “Rock” bands in the 80’s. As an adult he packed up and moved to the West Coast seeking fame and fortune and to follow his dream. He cut his musical teeth in the bright lights of the Hollywood/Los Angeles “Rock” scene. Once he settled in he began to study musical theory and learned many different, complex rhythms. He provided session work and performed at iconic clubs and at major venues throughout the West Coast. After creating a buzz for his songwriting, his Hard Rock quintet was signed to a major record label. Unfortunately after recording his first album the music industry changed and he had to follow a different musical direction.
He continued to perform with several acts in Southern California until he decided to relocate to the “Entertainment Capital of the World” to continue his pursuit of music. He quickly began performing all over the “Strip” at major casinos, showrooms, and special events with many talented Entertainers and Headliners. Due to his reputation as a “Go To” Drummer he continues to sub and perform with various local and traveling artists as well as being a Drum Tech for a Major Headliner. He considers it an honor to be able to create and perform music and never takes any show or guest for granted. Always quick to flash his smile, Music is not just a passion but a way of life.
