‘Super Hero’ His Story of Public lands 

Music in the Mountains is the nonprofit’s largest fundraiser.  DSB, Next Best Thing to Journey, has performed for seven seasons as friend and advocate for raising funds to help protect and conserve the San Bernardino National Forest’s natural resources and forest land.  DSB headlines Music in the Mountains next concert on Saturday August 5th, with special guest, Live from Earth, Tribute to Pat Benatar.

“We love Big Bear Valley and its people; it’s one of our favorite stops on our world tour’, shared Juan Del Castillo, DSB spokesperson.  “Our musical journey has afforded us the opportunity to become the voice, or advocate, for many wonderful causes. The privilege to perform annually at Music in the Mountains, presented by the Southern California Mountains Foundation, has DSB committed to doing our part to protect our mountain paradise."   


Actor and avid outdoor enthusiast, Dean Cain, recently got involved in telling his story on the value of how his Big Bear experiences as a youth and young adult helped shape his support and appreciation for our local mountains and his mountain home.  As the brother of DSB band member, Roger Cain, he lends his support to the nonprofit Southern California Mountains Foundation for their work in inspiring and engaging his Southern California fans and friends to help make a difference.

Don’t Stop Believin’ in how you can make a difference; you can; show us your acts of love for our wonderful mountains, put on social media using hashtags  #ThinkNature  and #MusicintheMountains,” shared Dean Cain, “I’m a huge fan and supporter of our natural resources, love Big Bear Lake.”

Dean Cain known for his role as Superman in the TV series Lois & Clark; The New Adventures of Superman, host of Ripley’s Believe It or Not.  More recently, Cain appeared as Scott Peterson in the made-for-TV movie. 

 “Our thanks to Dean Cain for sharing his heartfelt story and love for our mountains,” said Stacy Gorin, Southern California Mountains Executive Officer.  “Unfortunately he’s working in Spain and will not be able to cheer DSB on for rockin’ the mountains this Saturday and raising funds.  He’s a ‘super hero’ for our mountains and will be with us in spirit through the band and all of our Journey and Pat Benatar fans attending.”
