“The EJ1250 is brilliant. It is the center of my tone. The warmth and control offered by the EJ1250 is something I have never experienced with any other product. People underestimate the importance of quality speakers, and Eminence delivers time after time.”
Dre DiMura is a dynamic guitarist from New Jersey. Raised in a musical home and introduced to the music of John Coltrane and Beethoven at an early age, DiMura, inspired by the music of Deep Purple and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, picked up a guitar at the age of 13 & began frequenting blues jam sessions.
Garnering an appreciation for Cream and Led Zeppelin, DiMura began studying at the Princeton School of Rock Music in Hamilton, NJ, under Jason Mather, a GIT top of class graduate and Pancho Garza, a jazz guitarist who introduced him to Django Reinhardt, John McLaughlin and Al Di Meola. In 2009 DiMura became a member of the school’s touring outfit, appearing in a documentary for VH1, “Woodstock, Then and Now”. As a part of the program, DiMura had the opportunity of sharing the stage with Earl Slick of David Bowie/John Lennon fame, Steve Howe of YES, Joe Lynn Turner of Rainbow, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider and the legendary Miss Gloria Gaynor at venues across the country from NYC’s B.B. Kings & Waldorf Astoria, to Philadelphia’s Electric Factory and the NAMM show in Anaheim California.
In November 2011 DiMura appeared in Guitar World Magazine. In a culmination of his efforts in composition and production, DiMura formed two piece heavy blues band, Resin Gypsy, as guitarist/vocalist/engineer & producer with drummer Kaleen Reading (Misstallica, Low Fat Getting High) in January of 2012. After less than six months, the group released a full length record, met with praise from media and peers, opened for the legendary heavy metal band, ANVIL, were featured on the front page of major press outlets and received heavy airplay on 89.5 WSOU (named the countries #1 College Radio station by Playboy Magazine in 2010). WSOU DJ Type-A (MIDEM award winner, Best College DJ) described the band as “perfect”. Tim Bogert, of the premier 60’s psychedelic rock band, Vanilla Fudge, praised the guitarist saying, “Good rock band. Nice, nice guitar work”. Don Jamison, of VH1’s, “That Metal Show”, said, “Resin Gypsy is terrific! It made me happy to hear something so well done, original and creative but with a real old school Cream type of vibe.”
DiMura travelled to Gulf Shores Alabama to perform at Hangout Music Fest on a bill with Jack White, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dave Matthews band in May 2012. Following a North American tour in July 2012 the guitarist played on a session in Pasadena, CA with drummer Jimmy Ford(Lionel Hampton), bassist Ernie Nunez(Brian Setzer) and vocalist Laura Dickinson(Phineas & Ferb, Florence and the Machine). Shortly after, Philadelphia rock trio, Satellite Hearts, enlisted his talents and the group began performing across the East Coast, earning a feature in the UK’s Fireworks Magazine, airplay on premier college radio stations and interest from press and industry professionals. XPN’s Julie Miller described the band as, “…a Lou Reed-fronted Steppenwolf”.
Dre DiMura continues to perform nationally with the band, record and produce records at his home studio.
