Dingo Factory

a little something something about us

dingo banner
Step One: Locate Dingo
Step Two: Observe Dingo
Step Three: Rock and roll. Neat!

Their first recording, a seven-song EP entitled I Don't Know Yet, was recorded in 2013 with Evan Middlesworth at Pine Hollow Studios.  Somehow, Evan was convinced to work with the band again, and they recorded the twelve-song LP Koala Me Crazy in the spring of 2015. You can hear it on 96.3 WHYS, Blugold Radio 99.9 FM, and in a few bars in Eau Claire that are still rockin' the cd player jukeboxes. 

Dingo Factory is:

Chris Hale--guitars/lead vocals

Chris Kuter--keyboards/lead vocals

Matt Brenner (2013-2015) --bass/vocals

Patrick Bedard--drums/vocals
