About the Event

American Roots, Circus Swing

Free Show! 

The group features Dean Johanesen on guitar and vocals, Mark Pezzo on upright bass and Max Kelly on percussion.

After their November debut with Johanesen at the St. Pete Folk Festival, the 24 Hour Men trio has been invited to perform at various events, including Localtopia, The St. Pete Tweed Ride, and on Streetcar Live, the Tampa trolley hosted by TECO and the Gasparilla Music Festival.

This press clip gives the general idea and inspiration behind the sound of the group:

“Dean Johanesen plays 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."
