About Music Artist – Deon Dee from the Band Joe Black
Deon Dee came from a small town called Bronkhorstspruit. He grew up in a live music venue called “Die Sinkshack” so he was exposed to music from a very young age. Deon and a group of friends decided to start a band when he was 10 years old so they all started music lessons and started to write songs. Deon did 4 Eastern Cape tours before the age of 15. In High school, he started a band with a few friends. They had a few songs on television and did a few tours with some of the biggest artists in SA. He also started his solo project in that time. After school he went to study music at “SAMI” (South African Music Institute) and met a few friends there to start yet another band. It was more focused on covers and corporate gigs. At this time he probably played over 700 gigs in his life.
Deon then started to do some session work with acts like Janie Bay, Gerald Clark, Klopjag, Dawie De Jager and Almero Welgemoed to name a few. Now he is an employee for Jo Black since March 2017 . With Jo, Deon played over 750 shows in the last 3 years.
He also produces music and still plays solo and cover shows when he is not on tour.
