Artist's Biography


Tuned in concert 3 times in the Tampa Bay area 80s-90s

Dino is one of the premiere performers of our time. He is indeed  "America's Piano Showman" - a title aptly given to him by over 80 million people who are witnesses to his majestic piano styling each year. Dino is constantly using numerous creative vehicles to deliver his unique hybrid of piano music to the masses through television, live performances, videos, albums, and electronically.  "God gave me the talent and I endeavor to give it back to Him with each new idea." It is his skill at combining artistry, entertainment, and keen business skills in each of these outlets that make Dino such a  success.

For the last 12 years, Dino has entertained Branson, Missouri, audiences with his exceptional showmanship and talent  making his Christmas production one of the most critically acclaimed shows in the entertainment city. His quest to present the audience with not only top-quality music, but an elaborate eye show as well, led Dino to hire a Broadway set designer, Hollywood costume designer, and professional dancers, complete with a dynamic light show and Austrian crystal covered piano. But the show is not all talent and flash; at the end of each show Dino presents the audience with something very near to his heart - the Gospel. "Over 100,000 people attend my shows each season and no one can say they haven't heard  the Gospel." 

Taking time out from their seasonal show in Branson, Dino and his co-host and wife Cheryl make the trip to Nashville, Tennessee, to tape The Dino Show - a weekly music and interview formatted show on TBN (Trinity Broadcast Network), the top rated Christian television network. Recently, The Dino Show claimed the No. 2 Neilson rating for the entire network. It's no surprise considering the time and effort that Dino and Cheryl put into each show. Dino's own award winning music is featured as well as other national and international artists such as Glen Campbell, Mel Tillis, BB Winans, Bob Carlisle, along with newer artists such as Nicole Mullins, The Katinas, and Jill Paquette.  Each carefully  chosen to present the viewing audience with a glowing picture of today's best Christian, Gospel and Inspirational style music. TBN  takes The Dino Show into 200 countries where Dino's message is well received. "Being a pianist allows me to play in any  language."

With emotional and spontaneous piano styling and his ability to astound audiences with his showmanship, Dino moves "outside the bounds to keep things interesting" and fans wholeheartedly applaud. Dino strives to communicate the love of Christ through his music reflecting on the scripture, "In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path." (Proverbs 3:5-6) It's following this advice that Dino credits for delivering him to the point he is today: a servant of God who impacts people's live through beautiful music with a beautiful message.
