Diablo Dimes is Blues, Americana, Ragtime, Boogie Woogie, Dixieland, Calypso, Hokum, Roots...
Self described as 'Honkytonk, hooked, hop, lushhead heebies, and a full orchestration at a barrelhouse!'
It's no wonder one raves about his unique sound, and memorable performances, like few others.
Dimes has played extensively from coast to coast, like butter and toast for all types of audiences. From CBGB's in New York, to Slim's in San Francisco, to Le Bon Temps Roule in New Orleans, to The Viper Room in Los Angeles... He's warmed up stages, and dives, for the likes of Chuck E. Weiss & The G-Damn Liars, The Radiators, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Iguanas, Royal Crown Revue, Cashed Out, The Sonics, Lady Dottie & The Diamonds, Mad Juana, Yard Dogs Road Show, Janes Addiction, Detroit Cobras, Mike Ness, Chris Whitley, David Poe, The Toledo Show, Bingo, Nervous Cabaret, Pine Hill Haints, G Love, Jake LaBotz, Reverend Billy C. Wirts, Andre Williams, Leon Russell, Dwight Yoakam, and Wayne "The Train" Hancock, just to name a few memorable nights.
This is a sincere, primitive, and nostalgic approach most songwriters only dream of. With a smoky freight train for a voice box, Dimes complements it well as an authentic, and seasoned multi- instrumentalist.
In the last few years, Dimes has managed to have his music featured in a myriad of expression, from HBO, to The Discovery Channel. Sixteen months airplay on national college radio charts. And a featured performance on long time friend and collaborator Chuck E. Weiss' latest album, "23rd & Stout" on Cooking Vinyl Records. Not to mention numerous independent films, play productions, and musicals.
Recently, Dimes has released his follow up album to The Balladeer Volumes simply titled, "Villains" on Reltone Records. Currently in production, the hokum blues deluxe "Joybox Jubilee"... He always thrills his company, weather it's a ragtime holler on the resonator, the carnival like one man band Medicine Show, or with The Bloodhounds. A true original, raw and passionate, with enough charisma to fill a concert hall or, a dirty juke joint brawl!
