The Dynamics were recognized nationally in 1990 as winners of the National W.C. Handy Blues contest held annually in Memphis, Tennessee, after winning local and state talent contest. That same year, they also were the recipients of the B. B. King Lucille award as "Best New Talent" for their showcase performance at the National Blues Award concert. In 1992 they won a spot on the annual "Live From Bloomington" CD release with their tune 'Make That Change' competing with dozens of other bands, and were voted "Most Popular Local Band" in the Bloomington Herald-Telephone readers poll. One thing's for sure: be it a college fraternity or sorority, private party, or club, when The Dynamics take the stage, dancers hit the floor!
Based in Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University and the "Hurryin' Hoosiers", The Dynamics are favorites at many college parties, not only at I.U., but many schools in and out of the state. The Dynamics also play night clubs, festivals, and more than a few private affairs. The Dynamics cover a very large area of the Midwest, going as far the Quad Cites area, Chicago, and St. Louis in Illinois, to Toledo and Oxford Ohio, to Lexington and Louisville in Kentucky, and lots of places in between. Chances are, they will soon be playing at a party near you. Check out our online calendar to see where the PAR-TAY is!
