"Dean is simultaneously a throwback to an era of gypsy jazz and circuses while pointing the way to what will always be timely: a renaissance man who can play, can sing and communicate with each person that he adds to his ever-growing fan base. With touches of Santana, of Django, of Paul Simon or even Leon Redbone or Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Dean's music cuts through the noise of everyday life. Go see him!" 

- Steve Huntington, Sirius/XM Radio Margaritaville 

“Dean Johanesen spiced up his repertoire of acoustic guitar-driven fare with a sonic palette that calls on Spanish rumba-style instrumentals, speakeasy-era Americana, and swinging hot club jazz dosed in circus tent hues. In addition to original material, his sets are studded with perfectly executed covers of songs like Django Reinhardt’s “Minor Swing”...” 

- Leilani Polk, Creative Loafing - Tampa 

“Dean Johanesen is truly a remarkable artist in his ability, professionalism and dedication. His unique sound is unmistakable and his show is polished, but casual, with each song revealing more depth to his talent than the next. I knew of Dean and his music, mostly from area festivals and from songs I wore the needle through on his music…crystal clear, technically amazing and written from the heart. I was a fan before conducting this interview and chances are you’ll want to be one after you read it…”
