Jared Deck at Golden Light Cantina, May 25

Date: May 25, 2017

Time: 7:00 pm

Jared Deck takes life one fight at a time. “The battle has always been internal, overcoming my own failures and working to improve.” Raised on the dusty plains of an Oklahoma family farm, Jared worked in the fields as well as the town grocery, owned by his parents. “In a community of 1,200 people, big dreams seem impossible. We’re taught to manage expectations, put our nose down, and get to work.” He did exactly that. 

When the family business saw hard times, Deck turned to the oilfield to pay for school. “I was a roughneck – a worm hand, really – throwing back tongs on the drilling rig floor. Sure, it was tough, but so were we. I saw the sun set and rise each day; that kept me going.” The oilfield provided for a time, but every boom has its bust. 

After the oilfield, Jared worked at a local factory until the jobs were outsourced to other countries. He started a business, but was hit hard by the recession. He even ran for political office but lost by a couple percentage points. Through every challenge and change, music remained the one constant in Jared’s life.
