About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

2013 Country/Bluegrass Performer of the Year: Madison Area Music Awards. 2014 Country/Bluegrass Album of the Year: Madison Area Music Awards. The Dang-Its is a four piece band whose tag line, "Western Swing, Honky Tonk, & Americana," barely begins to describe the range of styles that comprise their repertoire: folk, country blues, Cajun, bluegrass, classic country, rockabilly, country swing, and more. Weddings? The Dang-Its deliver a variety of 100% danceable tunes, and not just country music: The band members come from diverse backgrounds and can deliver spot-on renditions of classics from Motown, 50s & 60s R&R, and even jazz and swing standards from the "Great American Songbook." Your aunt and uncle want to polka...or jitterbug? You're covered! Grandpa and Grandma love to waltz? Done! Just ask. Corporate events? It doesn't matter if your event is "county" themed or not. The Dang-Its have entertained at hundreds of concerts, festivals, and performing arts centers all over the mid-west. They are seasoned entertainers and can adapt to any requirements of your event. For all weddings, parties and corporate shows, the Band's goal is the success of YOUR event. That means they'll learn your special songs, work with your scheduling and logistical needs, and go with the flow. The band is fronted by vocalist Tom Waselchuk. Drummer Mark Luhring and bassist Matt Rodgers also sing. Rick Nass plays pedal steel guitar with a unique "synth" setup that allows him to faithfully mimic dozens of other instruments, from viola and French horn to accordion and saxophone. We frequently include talented guest artists according to musical preferences of our clients. For example, we'll include a violinist/vocalist for folks who want us to, say, feature a little more bluegrass or swing music. The Dang-Its have four independently released recordings. They are professional, veteran performers and entertainers. Their programs feature top-notch musicianship, expert vocals, and a wide range material.

Review by Matt D.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 13, 2012From Mount Horeb, WI

The Dang-Its put on a great show at our wedding. First, they are very talented musicians and have a great sound. Their repertoire is diverse, which helped get almost everyone out on the dance floor at one point or another. They also learned two new songs that we requested, which was really going above and beyond. Tom was great to work with as we planned the event; he was both accommodating and professional.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 25, 2012From Carroll, IA

We had the most wonderful wedding reception and the Dang-Its were a big part of this. They are a great band! Not only is the music great but they are the nicest people! I think everyone at my wedding commented on how excellent they were! (and that is saying a lot because there were 550 to 600 people. I even had people tell me that they don't listen to country music and they LOVED them. They are a truly talented band in every way! Also, Tom the band leader communicated with me by phone and email and was probably more on top of the situation than I was. I would recommend them to anyone! I want to have another party just to get them back here! Thanks Dang-Its!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 7, 2012From Spirit Lake, IA

The Dang-Its were phenomenal! They were very talented (just listen to their sample tracks) and very accommodating (e.g. scheduling set breaks around cake cutting, bouquet tossing, etc). They learned and performed new songs at our request in addition to playing their established repertoire including their original compositions. They kept the dancers moving and kept those who preferred just to listen entertained as well. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how great the Dang-Its were! They were everything we had hoped for, and we are very glad we selected the Dang-Its to play at our wedding.
