Dino Jag has had a long career in pop and enjoys affectionate notoriety in his native South Australia. In the wake of the Haitian earthquake in 2010, Dino recorded Calling All The Saints (S.O.S. Haiti) to help the cause. The single was recently re-released. Dino’s career began at the young age of 13 when he debuted in a caberet band as a singer and guitarist, his brother Val played drums. By age 19, Dino was touring with the band The Fraud Squad. A diverse performer, Dino’s career has spanned the roles of a tenor with the 20-piece Adelaide Connection Jazz Choir and a vocalist with the funk/rock band Stolen Waters.
As a solo artist, Dino Jag found chart success in Denmark and Australia with his remarkable cover of the 70’s anthem, Play that Funky Music. Dino describes his involvement with the Haiti Earthquake relief as a real calling in his life: “It was shocking to see the extent of what had happened [in Haiti]. As more details began to be released, along with many of the graphic images that followed, it became clear that this was a natural disaster like nothing we’d seen before in our lifetime.”
