Dance Hall Crashers Bio

Dance Hall Crashers (often abbreviated to "DHC") is a ska punk band from Berkeley, California, that formed in 1987. The band was originally made up of the members of seminal ska-punk band Operation Ivy, minus their singer and drummer. Since both Matt Freeman and Tim "Lint" Armstrong were interested in playing in a purely ska outfit, they recruited original drummer and ska enthusiast Erik Larsen aka Erik Kolacek. The band's original logo and designs were created by Jacob "Kuba" Schwarz, the older brother of later singer Karina Deniké Schwarz.

The band experimented with various songs and styles until they played the very first purely ska show ever booked at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley. Although the band played ska, the feeling and the vibe was definitely punk rock.

Immediately following their debut, Matt and Tim decided to pursue other interests, mainly a new band called Downfall.
