Dino Jag is a South Australian treasure. His unmistakable voice and performance energy first received national recognition as lead vocalist for funk/rock band Stolen Waters when they entered the national charts in 1997 with their reworking of the Stevie Wonder classic "Superstition."
Dino Jag was then launched into the international music arena in 2005 with his unique cover of the 70’s classic, “Play that Funky Music.” The song burned up the dance charts worldwide, reaching number 8 in Australia and number 34 in Denmark and became a radio favorite on many playlists.
In 2013 Dino Jag re-emerged onto the international spotlight with the release of his song “Calling All The Saints” breaking all records to become the #1 most purchased song on the “Music For Good” program for Oxfam America. With over 3,500 artists from around the world represented on the chart this was quite an achievement and a great testament to his songwriting ability.
Dino Jag has shared the stage with a wide range of artists including Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Sammy Hagar (Van Halen), Adelaide & Queensland Symphony Orchestras, James Morrison, Steve Vai (David Lee Roth/ Whitesnake), Daryl Braithwaite and Ian Moss.
His vocal ability and songwriting flare have also given Dino the opportunity to be featured on recordings with Rusty Anderson (Paul McCartney Band), Ray Columbus (NZ), Alan Gorrie (Average White Band), Mark King (Level 42), Carmen Grillo (Tower Of Power) and even Australian icon Barry Crocker!
Recent years have also seen Dino shed his electronic equipment and digital gadgetry for an acoustic guitar & hit the local venues to deliver some truly captivating live performances with some of Australia’s finest musicians adding another dimension to the Dino Jag experience.
Now armed with an acoustic guitar and a great selection of songs, audiences are in for a real treat!
