Rising from the forests and rivers of central Wisconsin, Armchair Boogie's high-energy take on the Jamgrassgenre fuses intricate arrangements of acoustic guitar and banjo with the funky back beats of electric bass anddrums.Augie Dougherty (banjo, vocals) and Ben Majeska (guitar, vocals) started playing together in the fall of 2014while attending the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and within a year their musical collaborations led tothe formation of Armchair Boogie. Eager to expand their sound for a bigger stage, Augie and Ben recruitedbassist Eli Frieders and drummer Dan Waterman to fill out the band's four-piece configuration.Armchair Boogie solidified their current line-up in the spring of 2017 when Denzel Connor took over for adeparting Dan Waterman on drums. In conjunction with the release of their debut, self-titled album, the bandmoved to Madison, WI, a jumping off point from where Armchair Boogie has become a regular on the upperMidwest festival circuit while also sowing roots in theRocky Mountains
