Dino Vera, Vocalist / Drummer, and now Keyboards has played with pop icons Jimi Hendrix and James Taylor. In his own words, he “got his Master’s in Music Playing on Bourbon Street in New Orleans,” playing with such notables as Ellis Marsalis (father of Wynton and Branford Marsalis), the Meters and Fats Domino. He played music at The Lodge at Pebble Beach for 14 years, and more recently The Palazzo, The Venetian, and The Trump Towers, in Las Vegas. He also went on the road to exotic locales such as St. Martin in the Caribbean, and Europe. His Vocal skills are as multi-faceted as his experience. This allows him to Sing and Play Rhythm and Blues hits in a definitely Ray Charles-tinged Soulful Groove, and also Jazz Standards, and New Orleans Style Blues.
Dino’s Vocal styling is Soulful and Personal; filled with Warmth and Power. These credentials have paved the way for a recently completed highly successful and acclaimed series of Jazz Concerts in France.
The 2007 Monterey Blues Festival Main Stage featured Dino Vera in a Tribute to Ray Charles.
