Bio

“It’s not a band, it’s not a show, it’s an Experience, that’s why we call it that.”—Dash Kizer

Dash Kizer was born in Houston and then raised along the Calcasieu River in Topsy, Louisiana. Musically he combines his Texicajun upbringing with Austin Guitar Rock and Gulf Coast Soul to yield something that’s best tasted with a spoon.

“I’ve always been the guy who walks both sides of any line,” Dash says. “I’ve got my Louisiana side and my Texas side; my wild side and my reverent side; a little country, a little soul; I like nothing better than a funky good time, but I need some poetry with my wine.”

“A night out—it’s not about a performer and an audience; it’s about a group of people having a good time. People are there to party. I’m there to help.”

The Dash Kizer Experience is powered by a seasoned group of Austin pros, including Adrian Peritore (The Motels) and Kevin Carroll (Charlie Robison) on guitar; Bob Mitchell (Pacers) on bass; Omar Lopez (The Brew) on fiddle; Catfish Jack (Los Lobos) on harmonica; and Dave Robinson (Bob Schneider) on drums. The Experience plays favorites from every genre: Country, Soul, Funk, Blues, Pop, Disco-Jazz, Hard Rock, Punk Rock, and Silly Songs; plus an assortment of Dash Kizer original classics.

For special occasions, Dash and The Experience are happy to learn your requests. For Very Special Occasions, Dash will write you your Very Own Song —funny, sad, touching, any sentiment—you name the subject and the style, Mr. Kizer will bring you a song.

Dash has released two CDs: "Rise of the White-Trash Superhero" (Hackberry, 2003) and "The Experience" (Reliance, 2004). Austin Chronicle music critic Chris Gray named "White-Trash Superhero" a Best First Record in 2003. Dash is currently working on "I Don't Believe in Angels," for a 2005 release.
