City : Dino Jag "Stripped Back" (Sydney)
Venue : Leadbelly
Address : 42 King St, Newtown, New South Wales 2042
International award-winning singer songwriter Dino Jag is back on the road with his “Stripped Back” performances showcasing his latest songs, along with some classic covers, with captivating soulful arrangements that also feature Virgil Reality on trumpet and Nick Romano on drums.
“These shows are highly charged with generous servings of soulful funk/rock” says Dino Jag. “I’ll be wielding an acoustic guitar and joining me on stage will be the highly engaging Virgil Reality on trumpet and Nick Romano on drums. It’s a very cool sound that exposes the heart and soul of the music in a way that’s intensely intimate, yet very dynamic and upbeat. It’s a great vibe.”
Dino Jag is a South Australian treasure with an unmistakable voice and performance energy. Nominated for the People’s Choice Pop Award at 2017 SA Music Awards, Dino is quickly gaining international recognition following the release of his critically acclaimed ‘Breakthrough’ EP in November 2016. Recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood with Grammy Award Winning Producer Jeff Bova at the helm and featuring some of the best in the business, Aaron Sterling (Drums – John Mayer), Corey Britz (Bass – Bush), Tim Pierce (Guitar – Bruce Springsteen), Jeff Bova (Keyboards – Michael Jackson), Carroll Hatchet (Backing Vocals – Bette Midler) and Bernard Fowler (Backing Vocals – The Rolling Stones) becoming another major milestone in Dino’s career.
