Dan Dinnen’s SOLO performances showcase his talents as a singer/songwriter and blues musician: a tasty mix of songwriting, soulful vocals, finger-picking guitar and blues harp.

DAN DINNEN & SHORTY is Dan’s other main musical focus and features one of the Australian blues scene’s most exciting, unique and best loved drummer/percussionists Anthony “Shorty” Shortte. DAN DINNEN & SHORTY dish out a bluesy gumbo of rootsy goodness. A little bit delta swamp, a little bit hill country, and a lot its own unique flavor. Shorty is best known for his work with ARIA award winning Australian blues legends Collard Greens & Gravy.
