DSQ performs intimately as a quartet or with a full accompaniment of drums, guitar, and piano.  In addition to performing internationally, DSQ has played “at home” for Presidents Obama and Bush, the College Football Playoff, and the NBA and NFL organizations. DSQ has sold out concert venues like the House of Blues and symphony halls alike. They have played alongside Josh Groban, Chi- cago, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Now they have the pleasure of coming to Chickasha on Thursday, February 20th at the University of Science and Arts.  The City of Chickasha recently announced that for- mer resident Jim Cowan will lead the city in economic development.  “We are very excited to add Jim Cowan to our team,” said John Noblitt, Chickasha City Manager. “As a Chickasha native, Jim understands some of the challenges Chickasha has had. He will be a great asset in helping increase the quality of life for Chickasha citizens.”  In this role, Cowan will develop and lead strategies to attract new businesses and encourage expansion and retention of existing businesses, helping to promote a diversified local economy.  “When I come back to Chickasha and look at things here, I don’t like to look at things how they are, I like to think what it could look like in a couple of years,” Cowan said. “What excites me most so far is the commitment from people here locally. When you have a community that believes in itself and everyone is will- ing to work together, amazing things can happen.” We’ll Match your Refund up to $1000 *see dealer for details Drive Now Pay Later!
