Loda Dimes

The members of Loda Dimes originally played together at jams centered around metroplex guitar shows. They later formed slightly less than half (judged by weight and volume) of a blues/rock ensemble known as Big Cookie and the Crumbs. After the dissolution of the Crumbs, the three began jamming and writing material in Rush’s house, to the bemusement of Rush’s dog(s). They’ve since played venues ranging from bars to benefits to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and recorded various tracks, including a rock version of the theme from the TV show Dallas and their full-length CD release “Ten Cent Instant Rebate.”

Rush Olson : Bass Guitar, Vocals
From Fort Worth, Olson sang and played bass with local groups 20 West and The Queue in the late 80s and early 90s before taking a hiatus from music to concentrate on a media and sports career. He returned to music making with the Crumbs in the early 2000s and also recently played in the Fort Worth based rock ensemble Rosedale.

Olson took some guitar lessons in the seventh grade, but discovered singing in high school theatre classes and realized it could get him into a band. He has bachelors degrees in communications and history from Trinity University in San Antonio. He currently produces video and audio projects for the Texas Rangers Baseball Club.

Dean “Deano” Pauley : 6- and 12-String Guitars
Born in Beaumont, Pauley played bass, guitar, and trumpet in various bluegrass and rock outfits in Dallas-Fort Worth. Pauley graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in photography. He is the longtime art director at KTVT-TV, the Dallas-Fort Worth CBS affiliate and also plays in the band Back Pages..

Kevin Rothstein : Percussion, keyboards

Kevin graduated with a degree in accounting from San Diego State and later nearly earned his CPA. He currently crunches numbers in Fort Worth for KTVT-TV and also plays in the station band, Eleven21.
