I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Plakatak - Dino Haak Collective

The Dino Haak Collective came together to create music that transcends the usual and predictable. Frontman Megatar player Dino Haak shares the stage with an assemblage of talented individuals including: Chris Squires, drums; Artis the Spoonman, spoons & wisdom (Soundgarden, Zappa); Alex Westcoat, drums (David Bazan, Say Hi!); and Taiwanese scratch prodigy DJ James Ho, turntables. Former members of The Collective include Troy Glessner (guitar), Todd Gray (drums), and Sean Siner (drums). The band is also known for their unique duo performances.

German artist Dino Haak is best known for his work on the Mobius Megatar, a twelve-string touch-style instrument. The sound of the Megatar adds a powerful and eerily symphonic element to the band’s sound. Haak’s legal move to the US from Germany was supported by American musicians Trey Gunn (King Crimson), Don Schiff (Pat Benatar, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow), Greg Howard (Dave Matthews Band), Emmett Chapman (Inventor of the Chapman Stick) and others, who helped him to be awarded an Exceptional Artist Visa in 1999 and choose the United States as his full-time place of residence since 2000.
