After the untimely death of the brilliant and beloved Rich Dangel, the two remaining members of Butterbean, Michael Kinder and Buck England, invited Dean Reichert to fill the big shoes Rich left.  Dean is known for his soaring guitar work and soulful vocals.  A trio again, Butterbean has been busy working around Seattle and Tacoma playing their unique brand of musical soul stew.   Both Michael and Dean are long-time players in The Blues Power Revue; Buck and Michael are Big Nasty veterans; and along with Tim "Too Slim" Langford they constitute a trio that tears it up and gets funky as Too Slim and the Kingsized Troublemakers whenever Tim is in town; Buck is currently playing with the Hat Trick and Dean has been hard at work on solo projects which include his long-awaited CD, "Misty's Joint," available at CD Baby.
