The Dingalings are a Quartet specializing in Rhythm & Blues/rock & roll from the 50’s and 60’s, as well as Jazz of a similar era. They have over 10 years professional experience in performing with one another in various ensembles as well as collaborating with other well known artists in significant shows and events across the country. 

Early in the evening, they can play Instrumental Jazz (backround/quiet) from the swinging ‘post 1930’s’ & ‘pre 1969’ era. They then fire up for a couple of dance sets, launching into vocal driven tunes from the 50’s & 60’s that are predominantly by the rock & roll legend Chuck Berry. The Dingalings also play tunes by Fats Domino, Bo Diddley, Hank Williams and other artists.

Collectively, members of this band have played and recorded with great artists including Claire Bowditch, Jimmy Barnes, Joss Stone, The Bamboos, Paul Kelly, Kate Ceberano, Ella & Jesse Hooper, TZU, Tim Rodgers, Davey Lane, The Black Armband, Paul Gabrowsky, Julian Wilson, Andrea Keller and more. The Dingalings style of music, dapper suits & shiny leather shoes are suitable for Festivals, Weddings, Corporate Functions and Parties. They are an affordable 4 piece featuring an Electric guitarist, Double bassist/Vocalist, Drummer, and Pianist; but they can add 1 or 2 extra horn players (being tenor and/or baritone Saxophone)
