The Dang-Its

Tue July 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

“Americana” is the core of the roots-oriented repertoire of The Dang-Its. The band was founded in 1998 playing “Honky Tonk, Western Swing, and Americana,” and now embraces bluegrass, country swing and country blues, folk, classic and alternative country, and singer-songwriter material, including original songs.

In addition to garnering recognition from listeners’ polls in their hometown of Madison WI, The Dang-Its have earned seven nominations from the Madison Area Music Association’s annual awards, winning two: 2013 Country/Bluegrass Performer of the Year, and 2014 Country/Bluegrass Album of the Year, for their album A Lick of Sense.

Tom Waselchuk, founder, is the band’s featured singer and songwriter. A multi-instrumentalist whose background includes playing guitar, bass, and pedal steel guitar in bands ranging from country and bluegrass to jazz ensembles, big bands, and his own sextet, Full Count Jazz Band. Tom is a teacher, songwriter, free-lancer, and soloist, and has toured the U.S. and the Far East with the gypsy swing ensemble Harmonious Wail.

The other band members are all veteran players. Rick Nass (pedal steel guitar), co-founder, has performed with many popular country bands including Lickety Split, Rosebud, and Crossfire. Mark Luhring (drums and vocals) owns a Bachelor of Arts degree in music and has considerable experience in a wide array of musical genres. Matt Rodgers (bass and vocals) also has a Bachelor of Arts (music) degree and a similarly extensive playing résumé. Matt was a member of Harmonious Wail with Tom from 2009 through 2011 and joined The Dang-Its in 2015.

The Dang-Its have released five albums and performed in seven mid-west states in their 18-year history. The current quartet also forms the core of a separate musical venture, a classic country music revue titled Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks: The Music and Lives of Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash. The revue is presented exclusively in concert halls and performing arts centers across the Midwest, and co-stars vocalist Lindsey Juarez and multi-instrumentalist Doug Brown.
