Billed as 'COUNTRY MUSIC WITH DRIVE' these professional musicians have broad appeal, bringing enthusiastic devotees of all ages to their venues, as well as to the dance floor. The DAKOTAS smoothly blends traditional country, rock-a-billy and early rock music. Their sets include crowd requests, all your favorites and an original song or two. Based in Mesa, AZ the DAKOTAS! band has been playing all over the Valley for over 15 years. They've been the Saturday house band at AJ's Hitching Post for several years.



Senger is a nationally recognized, award winning singer, song writer, and recording artist. Angie is a member of the AZ Country Music Hall of Fame, the National Traditional Country Music Hall of Fame and has been regularly featured on Nashville's RFD-TV for over 17 years.



Soon after WEST joined the Desert Wind Band, they landed the job as full-time HOUSE BAND at Bullocks Cocktail Lounge in Phoenix for many years.  He also was the Lead Guitar player at the Prescott Opry.  He was inducted into the prestigious Arizona Country Music Hall of Fame and took his band all over Arizona. Now the Jim West guitar stylings can be enjoyed wherever the DAKOTAS are performing.



When you GOOGLE “Wayne Holland” you will instantly discover that he is known far and wide as a talented musician, singer/songwriter.  When you see and hear him play LIVE, you will see him as a highly skilled and gifted performer as well.  Every band is elevated to the next level when they are fortunate enough to have Wayne Holland spend time adding his gift to their sound.  Every venue will be thankful the DAKOTAS showed up with Wayne Holland!



Todd Leichtman played in with numerous “A”-list bands at all the venues in and around Phoenix, and Nashville.  Keeping his day job kept him grounded, and he found he loved playing locally with all the talented musicians who kept him busy.  He finally has found his HOME with Angie and the DAKOTAS!



Angie Senger's strength is surrounding herself with exceptional musicians. Whether on a TV show, in a concert hall or with her band, the LIVE MUSIC will be handled by professional musicians!
