The band that would soon become known as the Dandelion Stompers first gathered in Chris Clark’s rehearsal-studio/genius-incubator/basement in April, 2014. They knocked out a few songs and quickly realized two things:

  1. “This is a lot of fun, will make us happy, and hopefully will make a lot of other people happy, too.”
  2. “We’d better learn a bunch more songs. We’ve got a show coming up in a few weeks!”

They played their first official show at MC Ginsberg’s in downtown Iowa City on June 13th, 2014, followed quickly by the Clinton Street Social Club, and then the Iowa City Jazz Fest in July.
