A graduate of Texas A&M University, Terry is currently employed by HP Enterprise Services as a web developer.

Kerry has been part of the DCJB trumpet section since 2015. In addition to DCJB Kerry also plays with Grace Bible Brass at Grace Bible Church where he and his family are members. Kerry’s love for music also expresses itself through the Latin jazz band he leads, Clave Con Alma, as well as his work with Dallas Jazz Orchestra and Alan Glasscock Orchestra. Although Kerry’s education at the University of North Texas resulted in degrees in Real Estate (he works in the Real Estate Advisory industry and has been in Real Estate since 1988) he says he really went to UNT for the music! Of his membership in DCJB Kerry says, “I enjoy the DCJB as it is another way to present God's word to the world and do so by making lots of joyful noise”.

Mike inherited his love of music from his musical family and he has been a member of DCJB since 1996. Mike’s involvement in musical performance also includes membership in the Heritage Brass Band, a military ceremonial band. When he’s not keeping count musically Mike keeps accounts in his professional gig as a CPA, which might also have something to do with Mike’s responsibilities as DCJB’s Business Manager. Mike is a member of 1st Baptist Church of Dallas where he is a long-time volunteer in the media department. When asked why he enjoys being part of DCJB Mike likes to quote a song title by Christian rocker Larry Norman: “Why should the devil have all the good music?”
