"Dean Dobbins...we use him for entertainment... and the residents love him."
Megan Duckwitz, Activities Assistant, Atlantic Shores Retirement Community, February 2014
"I have had Mr. Dobbins on my list of monthly performers for the past two years and have received many compliments from residents, staff and family members about his performances. Mr. Dobbins is a great musical performer and always brings a smile to my residents' faces. He offers an array of styles of music and performs
many song favorites that residents and staff of all ages enjoy.
He even performs music and songs that he wrote himself, which I really enjoy. Along with performing in our assisted living memory care unit, I have witnessed Mr. Dobbins performing in our healthcare center and for large holiday events that included our whole community (Independent Living, Assisted Living and Healthcare.)
I would recommend him for any type of performance."

"I have had the pleasure of having Mr. Dean Dobbins come and entertain for my residents in two different communities. He is a wonderful entertainer and what the residents enjoy most about him is his personality. They are able to talk with him before and after shows as well as requesting songs during performances.
He has a wonderful spirit that can be seen through his performances. I would personally and professionally recommend him to all."
Jessica Tipton, Life Enrichment Director, The Crossings at Independence, Nov 2016
"Though the songs of Dean Dobbins are cleanly structured, he rarely writes himself into a tight formal box. His clever and witty phrasing, colorfully painted images and surprising plot twists create captivating story lines that are supported by a smooth, melodic delivery. There is strength, power and meaning in his songwriting and musical arrangements. You can feel his storyteller’s eye moving across the landscape like a great novelist who stops to explore each of his characters and their desires before moving on to the next scene. Dobbins is a master wordsmith whose talents you don't see every day."
Brenda Barkley - Performing Arts Coordinator, Tidewater Friends of Folk Music
