Winner of the Best New Blues Band in 2019 from the IEBS, comes an electrifying new band staring
Diego Romero. He is bound to keep you at the edge of
your seat throughout the night with his explosive guitar work and booming vocals.
Born and raised in the Walla Walla Valley, Diego always found himself fascinated with the art of
music, and soon found himself fully engaged within his community. Growing up in a Hispanic household,
he was exposed to multiple genres of music which included Corridos, Cumbia, Rock, Hip Hop, Country,
Funk and much more. Though the love for diverse music began to grow, he realized the genre that
connected with him the most was none other than the Blues. The emotion, feel, and rawness of
the genre was more than enough to draw him in.
Diego taught himself multiple instruments and learned to play bass guitar in high school jazz band.
After playing bass for many years, he discovered that guitar was his true love.
With inspiration from Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Prince and most importantly,
his personal mentor Gary Winston, it became clear that music is what he was wanting to pursue.
The 25-year-old has now played numerous clubs and festivals across the Northwest for the last 4 years.
He opened for none other than Curtis Salgado, and is continuing to expand his musical
knowledge and network. As his obsession with music grows, so do his followers who
can see his passion for the music. ‘Dynamite Diego’ always puts on a fantastic show full of exhilarating high
energy and is absolutely guaranteed to rock your night away.
