On lead female vocals, Dez Petersen is the newest member of B&B. After seeing her perform in a popular spot in Melville, we just knew we had to nab her and make her part of the B&B family!
It was an effortless and instant integration and has since impressed us all even more with every performance! Dez developed a passion for the music industry at an early age. Singing in different choirs as a child and teen would eventually prepare her for a career in music. With a strong, unique voice and amazing ear for harmonies, it will set her apart from all other female singers in the industry. After being discovered by a local entertainment Diva, Dez clinched her first overseas contract in the UAE and performs there for the next two years before hitting Dar es Salaam and other UAE countries with the famous East African band The Tanzanites. Back at home, Dez is part of many freelance outfits. With 17 years of experience, Dez is considered one of the biggest gems in the SA Music industry.

that they wanted to work together again. B&B has been the perfect opportunity to take it to the hilt!
