THE DANCE PARTY is a party rock band from Washington, DC. The Dance Party is dangerous. The Dance Party is a motherfucker. You love The Dance Party.
The Dance Party’s material is characterized by a manic frenzy of electric guitar, fast-powered drums, boppy synthesizer and Coogan’s coasting vocals that venture easily into falsetto territory every third note or so. Coogan dances around the stage like a caged sex beast, flailing limbs and hair following in the wake of every hip thrust, while his bassist and guitarist, donned in hi-tops and headband, respectively, trade riffs. It’s obvious these guys are just here to party, and will continue to do so as they tour the US.

The group deftly balances synth-pop keyboards and pop-metal guitars… Add triumphant “heys!” and arena-filling choruses, and such funk-rock romps as “Hush” sound like guaranteed hits.
