Dina Blade offers a rich variety of themed shows to delight all types of audiences.
“I frequently perform vintage music the old fashioned way: as a vocalist with piano accompaniment (tap dancing optional) or just singing and playing guitar. Other instruments can be added (up to seven pieces) for a bigger sound. I have many references, so feel free to ask me.”

Pointer, Ilwaco Library

“This show is fabulous. Ray’s stories, Dina’s vocals along with Han’s piano virtuoso invoke a living history. You really feel what people experienced during WWII…. made me laugh and cry.
