Armchair Boogie is a four-piece Bluegrass Folk band formed in the heart of Central Wisconsin. Conceived and brought to life by Fond du Lac’s own Ben Majeska (guitar/vocals) and Augie Dougherty (banjo/vocals) in the Fall of 2014.
Armchair Boogie formed in the heart of Wisconsin in 2014 as a bluegrass duo featuring Augie Dougherty (banjo) and Ben Majeska (guitar). After a handful of shows, they recruited a well-versed rhythm section (bassist Eli Frieders and drummer Denzel Connor) to hold down the upbeat tempos and provide an extra oomph that’ll bring even the saddest uncle to the dance floor. The sound has a new-grass feel that’s not afraid to delve into the realms of funk or country. Keep an eye out for Armchair Boogie’s debut album set to be released spring 2018, and don’t miss them on the road year round!
From bluegrass to funk to folk, Armchair Boogie delivers dynamic original performances nationwide.
