Dina Preston Band Wall of Sound

Dina Preston Band Rating:5 Stars The Dina Preston Band delivered a great show as the headliner of the disabled veterans benefit Saturday night at the Mesa Convention Center, Mesa, Arizona. From "R-O-C-K in the USA" to their own penned song about PTSD entitled "So Blue" to 5 Grammy winner and keyboard player Michael Terry playing and singing "God Bless the USA" this might have been the best show in the western states on Saturday night.

No, he could not play harmonica and sing at the same time, although it seemed this blues rock country performer reminiscent of Hoyt Axton could harmonica-vocalize if he wished. Rock Slide Jones was the middle act entertaining us with their own brand of electric blues rock. These two acts already had us feeling like we had gotten our money's worth but the very best was yet to come. After about 60 seconds of the Dina Preston Band performance two factors in their incredible wall of sound had us in absolute amazement: Dina Preston's center note pitch and powerful delivery reminiscent of Pat Benatar and the smokin' hot electric lead fill playing of Don Ortiz, Dina's husband. Throughout the Dina Preston Band show the groove never faltered. Drummer Henry Lara was solid as a rock during every song, playing just enough transition fill to make each song better in a way only a top notch drummer can do. The bass player and the drummer should be so tight they are sleeping together (musically speaking). Bass player Mark Newberry was every bit as solid as Drummer Henry Lara and together they cut a groove for each song in their own smooth energetic lay-back over-the-top way. Bassist Mark Newberry sang lead on two songs also. This Mesa Arizona Disabled American Veterans (DAV) chapter had been trying to book the Dina Preston Band for a benefit concert for 16 years when their busy travel schedule finally allowed them to say yes. Word has it the Dina Preston Band will be performing next weekend in Tucson at the classic Mustangs convention. https://youtu.be/TbWogsobzS0 You can copy this link into a browser address bar and type Enter to see the four minute pre concert interview with Dina Preston and Don Ortiz.http://www.examiner.com/review/dina-preston-band-delivers-a-great-show
