Band Members

Larry Dean

Band leader

Band leader Larry Dean grew up playing accordions, organs, pianos…anything with a keyboard. A little country, some R&B, some solo piano all helped to work his way through his younger years and his music education at Campbell University. Immediately after finishing (35 years ago) he joined North Tower and has been here ever since.

Playing the keys and singing lead vocals Larry’s vision for North Tower has never changed. Making great music with great friends. In recent years Larry has added Artist (acrylic painter) and Teacher (teaching art classes in Raleigh NC) to his resumé.

Jeff Hinson

Jeff has been performing with North Tower for almost a decade as saxophone player and vocalist. He still recalls the first time he saw North Tower in the 1987, when he was a college student at UNC-W.

Now he’s part of the North Tower tradition.


Jeff lives in Wilmington with his wife Michelle and two sons, Austin and Garrett, who are following in their dad’s footsteps playing the saxophone. He’s a member of his church’s praise and worship band and spends a lot of time with his sons and their high school marching and concert bands.

Joe Salerno

Steve Davis

Sound Engineer

With Steve joining North Tower Band as sound engineer, he brings with him many years of experience in the business. Steve was born into a musical family and has been exposed to large doses of music since he was an infant. His father (Russell) sang in Gospel groups, played bass in jazz bands, played guitar and bass in country rock bands and always encouraged him and his older brother Tony to come along. Steve already had a natural ear for music, but this early exposure to various genres allowed him to develop into one of the finest and most sought-after sound engineers in the Southeastern United States.

Steve began his career in the music business as sound engineer with his father’s part-time band (Ambush) in 1976, but soon went on the road full time with the O’Kaysions (I’m a Girl Watcher). In 1980, Steve joined the Embers where he spent 26 years running sound and assisting in production and engineering on several of the Embers CDs. In 2007, Steve and his Uncle (Gerald Davis) along with other former Embers formed Legends of Beach, playing all over the Southeastern US including a week-long tour with the North Carolina Symphony in 2009. Steve has two daughters, Stephanie and Jessica, and a son, Adam. He and his wife Emily reside in Fremont, NC.
