About Deborah Del Mastro

Back to Mixed Nuts About Us Page


Deborah Del Mastro is thrilled to be the newest member of the Mixed Nuts Band!  She has been singing, dancing, playing trumpet and acting onstage, full time,  since she was 18 yrs old, back in the 1900’s.  Deborah is a US Navy Band veteran – first coming to the Bay Area when she was stationed at Treasure Island as part of the West Coast Showband Ocean Express, along with various other bands in the service.  After leaving the USN, she stayed in the area, studied for a Music degree at SF State and played & sang in quite a few venues, performing many styles of music from Motown and Rock to Punk and Salsa – which is why she’s excited to work in a band that covers such a wide variety of music.  Being a Gemini,  Deborah needs variety! She’s opened for Al Greene, Bob Newhart, Neil Sedaka and Helen Reddy, worked with Tony Sandler of Sandler and Young but lately she’s been onstage doing musical comedy as a Nun in the Nunsense Convent.  If you’ve been to the Campbell Theatre or the Willows Theatre lately, you may have seen her Sr. Robert Anne character.  She’s traveled extensively, filmed, recorded, toured with stars (Kaye Ballard, Lee Meriwether, Georgia Engel, Dawn Wells, Rue McClanahan, Sally Struthers, and Vicki Lawrence to name a few!) and has had a ball doing all of it!  Deborah is happy to get back to her roots, although they’re greyer now – by singing and playing her favorite tunes that she was performing way back when the music was new.  Only now as a Sailor/Nun/singing trumpet player with a lifetime of performing experience.  Hallelujah!

When she’s not doing all the above, she’s Mom to a couple of wonderful and talented kids and teaches voice and drama both privately and in summer camp / classroom settings.
