Hercules Dimitro - Tribute to Yanni
The exchange of energy when playing for crowds of over 20,000 people is without a doubt one of the abundant raptures encompassing Hercules Dimitroglou’s multi-faceted career. For over 15 years, his fervor for live performance has developed into an ubiquitous stage presence and a magnitude of musical versatility. Through mastering the piano, organ and synthesizer, Hercules has played and recorded pretty much every type of music one could think of in every type of venue one can think of. From creating his own innovative projects to contributing to the Metal milieu opening for iconic monsters of hard rock such as Whitesnake, Def Leppard and Scorpions among others, he is grateful for all of the pportunities he has had to express his musical ardor with like-minded talent.
His ensuing vision is to continue collaborating with more of the industry’s vanguard while inspiring the imagination of international audiences.
Well known in the Greek music scene for his participations in album recordings for 15-50, Pantelis Pantelidis, Stamatis Mesimeris, Hannibal and Spitifire, songs that have gained respected airplay time in top radio stations. In live performances he has appeared in Karaiskaki stadium with Hannibal two consecutive years for Scorpions and Joe Cocker in 2007 and in 2008 for Whitesnake and Def Leppard. The same year they appeared along with Roland Grapow (ex-Helloween, Masterplan) as support act of Nightwish, Edguy and Nevermore.
It should be noted that as a session player he has collaborated with famous Greek artists like Elena Paparizou (Eurovision contest winner in 2005), Antonis Mitzelos and Stamatis Mesimeris (famous Greek composers) and he has been a member in the orchestra of "No Shakespeare please" musical with a cast of top Greek actors.
In International level, Herc participated with Hannibal in Tarja Turunen's (ex-Nightwish) European tour 2012, receiving appraisals for his performances. In the same year he has been a member of Hannah and the Heartbreak contributing in the recordings of their first album.
In matter of character, he is adaptive in demanding situations, sociable and disciplined with ethos as partner and friend.
