The Dameans were a group of Catholic musicians who rose to prominence in the folk music era of the 1970s. They began as seminarians at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans, Louisiana; formed in 1968, the group comprised Darryl Ducote, Mike Balhoff, Dave Baker, Buddy Ceaser, and Gary Ault. By the early 1980s, along with such groups as the St. Louis Jesuits, their music "dominate[d] the publications scene" in contemporary Catholic liturgical music. As part of the "second phase" of post-Conciliar Catholic folk music, the Dameans' songs reflected attention to liturgical and Biblical texts, and several were represented in the original Glory and Praise hymnal of 1977. Their most popular songs included Look Beyond and All That We Have.
