Established in earnest: 2012
Disco, Metal, House. The 3 words most commonly used to describe the aggressive and highly-energized audio/visual experience that is Bad Dagger. Since first coming on to the scene as a group in early 2012, these 2 dynamic and talented artists have impressed and entertained audiences with their creative and unique presentation of audio production and musical performance. Bad Dagger has appropriately been called less of a band, and more closely resembling “one instrument that takes multiple people to play.”
Based in Indianapolis, IN, Bad Dagger is currently comprised of 2 members. Cameron Reel provides live audio production (synths, basses, pads, leads via Ableton/ MacBook Pro) as well playing bass guitar. On drum set and sample pad, Eddie Roodvoets provides an intense and nonstop energy to the music. Extremely danceable and cinematic, this act has a tendency to switch gears without warning, making it possible to touch on a wide array of genres in each set. They make use of this versatility with relentless passion and vigor.
Their blend of musical genres is indeed unique. Nothing sounds like Bad Dagger. Monumental and sublime at times, then hard, dark and anchored at others. A typical Bad Dagger set is certainly wide in scope, touching on elements of Electro, House, Metal, Prog, Funk, Disco, and Big Beat. These elements and more combine in such a way that Bad Dagger leaves each audience member with a sense of having an experience rather than just having seen a concert.
Chachuba is a four piece electronic/trance-fusion jam band that does not let the notion of “genre” limit the styles and influences found in their live shows. Chachuba has been able to transcend boundaries and have had the honor to play alongside talented jam bands and electronic producers.
The band is influenced by electronic dance music, with improvisation as a key component. Their jams are fueled by heavy and melodic guitar riffs, synths, and funky beats. No matter the show or festival, headlining or supporting gig, Chachuba’s music is infectious–and their fanbase continues to grow day by day.
The band consists of Nate Beitz (bass), Sean DiCosola (keyboard/synth), Gary Goodheart (drums) and Jimmy Klimek (guitar).
From the House of Blues in Chicago to State Bridge Amphitheater in Colorado, Chachuba has begun to spread their music and message all across the United States.
Chachuba is a grassroots band that has been touring for only 2 years and has hit major music festivals such as SummerSet, Summer Camp (Grassroots stage), Backwoods Music (x2), Great North, Hyperion Music and Arts Festival (x2) and many more . With two EPs and two singles featured on theUntz, and their first full length album coming soon expect to see Chachuba in a city near you.

“Finally came Sunday, the day most folks were anticipating. Kicking it off was relatively new Jamtronica group Chachuba. They layed down some funky riffs and tantalizing synths. Look out for this band in years to come, I have a feeling this is only the beginning for Chachuba.” Ray John Summer Set Music Festival
