Dino Vera

The unique Monterey duo consists of David Kempton on keyboards and Dino Vera on drums and vocals. While they may only be a pair, they sound like a sextet. With the help of a synthesizer, which produces sounds similar to Herbie Hancock’s neo-funk-jazz LP The Headhunters, Kempton could emulate any instrument he wants with the push of button. The duo has played Newport, Paris and the Monterey Jazz and Blues Festivals.
