Welcome to the MindWinder Universe

Let Dale Head and the MindWinder Orchestra take you on an magical musical journey

Dale brings his high energy and smooth vocals singing jazz, as well as great classic rock and pop songs orchestrated for big band in a high powered and innovative approach. With a natural command of the rock and big band swing genres, Dale sings, plays trumpet and leads his talented group of players through a dynamic ride.

Since Dale’s first album release “MindWinder” in 1995, Dale has delivered exciting live performances with new and innovative arrangements, encompassing musical genres ranging from big band swing music, to hard-hitting guitar riffs, which bring to mind the innovative horns of Blood Sweat and Tears, the vocal intensity of Janis Joplin, and the guitar gymnastics of Eddie Van Halen. Dale’s three-octave vocal range features his unique style of scat singing inspired by such greats as Ella Fitzgerald Mel Torme and Al Jarreau.
