Meet The Fleas

Dog on Fleas plans to take over the world. Their strategy is to play honest, loose and ingenious music for kids and their adult counterparts, and since kids tend to listen to music over and over and over, they are encoding special messages into the songs. Sort of like the Beatles, only less psychedelic. Actually, the only agenda the Fleas have is to make good music for decent people. And for you, too.

DEAN JONES - guitar, trombone, singing
Dean Jones likes blueberries, avocados, potato chips, chocolate, vegetables and pupusas. When he's not playing with Dog on Fleas he's playing music with the Arm-of-the-Sea Theatre or recording other musicians at his straw bale recording studio. In fact, he won the Grammy Award in 2013 for Best Children's Album for the album he recorded and produced for The Okee Dokee Brothers!

JOHN HUGHES - bass, guitar, singing
I love to make things - food, music, forts, and sometimes trouble. I mostly love to make things for other people. Toast anyone? On my birthday I plan to be dancing. When it's hot I'll be in the water with my family and maybe a bunch of other people. The sweetest things in my life do not get plugged in or require batteries. I love the smell of the street vendor's food in India and New York City. You smell nice too.

CHRIS CULLO - drums and cymbals
Chris is the fastest drum setter-upper we know. He can also drive his drums pretty fast because he has them on wheels. Now he also has the smallest kick drum we've ever seen, so he can drive even faster.
Chris has many great qualities: he can talk with some degree of knowledge about almost anything. He has a cool family and likes to go on adventures with them. and he's the best drummer because he can drive the band along while remaining almost undetectable, or totally kick butt if he has to.
