Believe it or not, Dang has been playing at DMSC for quite some time and playing here even kick-started his songwriting career. Once The Basement opened, Dang began playing shows there and eventually got more involved. He started his own songwriting workshop and is now teaching music and chess to the kids that attend the after school STEAM program.
Dang grew up in Des Moines with a somewhat musical family that helped spark his musical interests. With more musical talent in his pinky finger than I have in my entire body, Dang can play a total of 6 instruments and can sight read for violin, viola, and mandolin. He tends to gravitate toward piano and guitar, always searching for interesting patterns that he can finger pick on his trusty acoustic sidekick. One thing that you may be surprised to know is where the inspiration for his music actually comes from. For Dang, inspiration seems to find him when he hears music that he’s not really into.
