House of Blues - Jam Night

DAN DINNEN & SHORTYTuesday 24th May 2022

Feature act: DAN DINNEN & SHORTY

 DAN DINNEN & SHORTY sees one of the Australian Blues Scene’s most dynamic performing artists team up with one its most exciting and original drummer/percussionists. The result is a bluesy gumbo of rootsy goodness. A little bit delta swamp, a little bit hill country, and a lot its own unique flavor.

Dan Dinnen is a singer/songwriter, harmonica player and guitar finger-picker who delivers a swag of original tunes that run the gamut from smoking ballads to juke-joint boogies and grooves. He’s an energetic performer who combines originality with an old-time blues feel and style.

Dan was the 2016 MBAS Blues Performer Of The Year (Solo/Duo Category), 2017 MBAS Artist Of The Year, a Semi-Finalist in the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN, and a Chain Award recipient (Group Of The Year 2016) for his work as lead vocalist and harp player with The Hoodoo Men.

Drummer/percussionist Anthony “Shorty” Shortte is best known for his work with ARIA award winning blues act Collard Greens and Gravy. Shorty’s unique approach to the drum-kit helped to create a rolling, rollicking, juke-joint sound that captivated audiences at gigs and festivals around the country for 20 years.

Dan Dinnen & Shorty released their self-titled album debut in 2020, which topped the Australian Blues And Roots Airplay Charts, stayed in the top 20 for 11 months and won the duo the title of Best Blues Act 2021 at the Music Victoria Awards.
