We are incredibly disappointed to announce that we must postpone our show Friday at The Stanhope House. The COVID monster struck again, and this time he got Ryan. But fortunately the wonderful people at The Stanhope House have found another spot in their schedule for us — Friday, March 3rd. We can't wait. 

If you purchased tickets, they will be honored on the new date. 

We're so sorry for the inconvenience, and we hope to see you March 3rd!


The Dust-Ups are an original four-piece alt.country/Americana band from north/central New Jersey. Influenced by alt.country pioneers such as Old 97’s and Whiskeytown and country legends like Johnny Cash, their sound blends a down-home country sound with punk rock energy.

While they all call New Jersey home today, The Dust-Ups’ origins span from New Orleans (lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Ryan Chatelain) to Quebec (bassist Stephen Swalsky). Aside from their collection of mostly lively, catchy songs, perhaps the most intriguing aspect of their live show is watching multi-instrumentalist Joe Palmisano shift back and forth from lead guitar to pedal steel to mandolin, ensuring the band’s sound never gets stale. The Dust-Ups also include drummer Alek Speck, who toured the world with the indie rock band Run Run Run.

The Dust-Ups, who formed in 2022, plan to begin work this summer on their debut album.
