The man behind Dance Monkey Dance! is a genre-bending, trash-smackin’ noise creator. Doug Dicharry spent years honing his chops in a successful international touring band, but felt the pull to get back to his roots and rediscover his love for playing music. Even while becoming a talented multi-instrumentalist (drums, trombone, trumpet, mandolin, washboard, and spoons just to name a few), Doug decided to pick up the guitar and has been obsessively writing songs ever since.
The guitar has laid the foundation for what would become the core of DMD, but Doug craved a driving beat… so he built the STOMPSTAGE. It’s an amplified traveling stage, which creates two unique percussive sounds: *boom – crack!* With soulful vocals, percussive guitar, loop rigs, and the steady stompstage backbeat, he has penned an evolving repertoire of songs.
