June 23, 2011 – Whitewater Concerts In The Park

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.”

This show is free and open to all ages! Performance begins at 7:00pm
