He has performed at various night clubs around Malta since the 1970s, including Nigret Nightclub in Rabat, Whisper Nightclub in Mosta, and BJ's in Paceville.

Giordimaina had his national debut in the rock opera Ġensna in 1980. Following this, he was in constant demand as a singer for the popular Festival Internazzjonali tal-Kanzunetta Maltija.

In 1991 he won the first edition of the Malta Song for Europe festival, which returned Malta to the Eurovision Song Contest after a sixteen-year hiatus.

He has also performed a number of times at the Malta Jazz Festival.
