Upon arriving in the US in 1988, Dinny was pleased to find that his fellow-musicians in the NYC music scene were drawn to his raw talent. By the early 90’s, he settled in as the front-man, lead-singer and co-songwriter of The Racket. The band played hard-rocking shows during the smoldering-hot NYC music scene of the 90's at legendary venues including The Limelight, China Club, CBGB’s and The Bitter End.
Over time, band members changed and The Racket went through a few iterations and name changes - before Dinny teamed up with musicians, singers & songwriters Glen Muñoz and Peter Farrell in 2000 to form Keague•Farrell•Muñoz. KFM released their first full-length album ("Coming Clean") later that year - as well as three subsequent EP's. . .culminating with "Percolated" (2004).
