"...a huge hit. The Dang-Its is a group you don't want to miss for your concert programming."
Lori Page, Waupun Fine Arts, Inc.
"We could not have made a better choice than The Dang-Its for our “kick-off” event. We hope you will come back in 2013."
Nancy Lust, Cambridge Arts Council
The Dang-Its’ approach is roots oriented, emphasizing tight arrangements with clear, soaring vocal harmonies. The band shifts effortlessly from spare and gritty alt-country stories, to jazzy, western swing jump tunes, to whisper-quiet ballads—a stylistic and dynamic sweep that one Madison writer/musician simply described as “Atmospheric.” Their repertoire is definitely off the beaten track and features songs that span a wide range, from the quirky and humorous to powerful portraits of love and loss. Add a few classics and standards along with expertly crafted original music, and The Dang-Its offer a mix that will connect with any audience.
“Thanks for a wonderful performance. It was our best attendance for some time!!! The music was great and the performers were top-shelf!”
Evonne Koeppen, City of Beaver Dam
