Dingo was born in Southern California. As the Grandson of the late, great Dixieland Drummer Elmer “Hap” Ruggles, Dingo was destined to play drums.
Growing up in Chino, he would make the drive to Hollywood to see the up and coming bands and to see where his grandfather played in the 50’s and 60’s. Years later he played the same stage as his grandfather did at the Whisky a Go Go.
Playing metal for the last 20 years he has recorded several CDs and toured Europe and the US, sharing the stage with some incredibly talented musicians.
Fast forward to today he is the back beat of Shower Me Blue, bringing his heavy metal influence to the songs that make you want to tap your feet and get your boogie on.
