From press release
Charlotte’s Web for the Performing Arts will present The Dang-Its in concert at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 19, at Katie’s Cup, 502 Seventh St., Rockford.
The Dang-Its have become synonymous with excellence in Honky Tonk, Western swing and American music. With expert musicianship and stagecraft, they move effortlessly from crowded dance halls to performing arts concert halls.
For The Dang-Its, it’s all about respect for American roots music, excellent musicianship and performance skills, and choosing just the right songs. The Dang-Its’ approach is roots oriented, emphasizing tight arrangements with clear, soaring vocal harmonies.
The band shifts effortlessly from spare and gritty all-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.
