Dynamite Pleasure Chair is a four piece band with original songs that have: energy, fun, chaotic feelings, and music that you’ll remember and think “Well that was different”. Dynamite Pleasure Chair started in 2004 or 2005 (one of those) with JP JASON POWER ON VOCALS, BRETT PETERSEN ON DRUMS, AND NICK O’BRIEN ON GUITAR. Shortly after coming up with the name for the band (Which was just the three of us saying one word and going around a circle) we added DAN CRANSTON ON BASS GUITAR. After a while of being young and having what life’s little problems would arise we disbanded for 4 years.
In the summer of 2010 Dynamite Pleasure Chair three founding members meet back up and thought it would be fun to jam again. After two meets the songs we wrote 4 years ago were still stuck in the memories and they started the restructure and rebuild the band. This time instead of doing just songs about heartbreak and life’s little problems the members decided to just have fun. With songs like “Fight!” & “Cyanide Sugar Bear” the band started with an idea that JP came up with. “Let’s take Dr. Seuss Books and make songs out of them!” The other agreed in the sure idea of it and began working on a song called “Marvin K. Mooney, Will You Please Go NOW!” based after the book with the same name. After that the band started with another song that would just be fun “I Was Once A Power Ranger” after that “Dr. Mario” Based after the popular retro video game, many more songs would follow after that.
By September 2010 Dynamite Pleasure Chair took the stage for the first time as a band and to our surprise Dan Cranston read a paper and came out to see his old band mates. After that chance meeting the band had Dan back in “The Basement” (no really it’s a basement) Performing getting him caught up and writing newer songs. After a Couple of great shows a year later Nick O Brien decided to leave the band.
After a couple of months searching in the summer of 2012 the three members found NICK “BRUTAL” (A Heavy Paced Guitarist Rock God) working at a Subway (the sub place not a real subway). After a month or two Nick was able to take the rifts that the other Nick rewrote and revamps the guitar riffs into a Heavier Version.
