Gallery: Woggles and Company Rocked the Royal American
Georgia-based soul-rock quartet the Woggles delivered a mighty high-energy performance at the Royal American on Sept. 26. It was the veteran band’s first gig at the venue, and they had a blast.
Upon arrival, singer/tambourinist Manfred Jones, guitarist Jeff Walls, drummer Dan “Electro” Hall, and bassist Patrick “Buzz” Hagstrom weren’t so sure they’d fit on the cozy bar-side stage, but they squeezed together and did their twist ‘n’ jive rock show with no problem. They even pulled off many of their choreographed moves and high-kicks without knockin’ each other over.
Jones and company rendered plenty of material from their latest studio collection The Big Beat (Wicked Cool), and delighted a few old-school fans with classics from their early-’90s 45s and LPs as well.
Local rock duo the Frizz — singer/guitarist Rob Kampert and drummer Neil Thomas — hammered through a fuzzed-up set of originals early in the night, following Nashville-based openers Matt Butcher and the Schoolyard Band, who provided some impressively tight power-pop with vintage tones and youthful vigor.
