Hey there, rock-n-rollers! My name is Chip.

You may know me as the voice behind Chip DiMonick, voted Pittsburgh’s Best Punk Band for five consecutive years. Or you may have heard my song “The Ol’ Two Niner” on the WDVE Morning Show when they bring on Phil Bourque as a guest. Or maybe you’re a music lover and a friend linked you to this page.

Regardless, HELLO! I’m glad you’re here!


I had taken a two-year hiatus from the rock scene to take care of some family matters. But I am excited to announce that I am back!

I have a new band called Chip & The Charge Ups. And we have a ton of new songs that I think you will love!

These songs will entertain you from every angle. Some will inspire you. Some will make you sing along at the top of your lungs. Some will make you think. Some will make you headbang. Some will make you laugh. Some will make you cry. Some will surprise you.

And will there be some mashup action? Heck yeah!

Now, for the rest of the world, these songs will be released on two EP’s, out in September 2018 and Spring 2019. When these are released, I’ll be pushing hard to get this music discovered by as many new people as possible.

But I have a special thing for those of you who have already been following my musical journey. You can start getting my new music before the rest of the world!

I started a membership program through Patreon.com because I want my fans – both long-time and brand new – to have the chance to get my new music FIRST!

If you’re not familiar with Patreon, it’s a new and very simple component of the new music economy. You pay a monthly amount to become a member of my program – called a patron - and you get content from me every single month. The content you get depends on the reward level you select.


There are five levels of rewards available. At the lowest level, for just $1 a month, you will get a new MP3 of a song every single month.

The higher the level, the more rewards you’ll get. The other levels include things like your name in the credits of my YouTube videos, handwritten and serial numbered lyrics mailed to you, and a custom song that I’ll personally write and professionally record just for you for every year that you’re a patron!


I am so excited to have this new music ready to penetrate your ears. To start accessing it immediately, just click the “Become A Patron” button on this Patreon page.  After you check out, return to the "Posts" section where you can download your first song today!

Thanks so much for checking out my Patreon program and I hope you love the music Chip & The Charge Ups have for you! Rock!
