BOOGIE AND THE YO-YOZ :

Welcome to the hottest party band in Wisconsin…and maybe Iowa.

Boogie & the Yo-Yoz started performing for the masses in 1995 under their original name, Yogi & the Boo Booz. They were named after their drummer’s (Brian Yogerst) nickname. (Not after that pesky bear who steals picnic baskets) Unfortunately, shortly after their inception, they had a little bit of a run in with Hanna-Barbera (Yogi & Boo Boo’s keepers). Thus, the name change. Boogie has played a variety of shows ranging from birthday parties, weddings, and local taverns to regional festivals, opening for national acts, and headlining county and state fairs.

WHAT MAKES THEM DIFFERENT:

Variety: They are not a Pop band, a Country band, or a Rock band. They are an Everything band. Or I guess you could say a “Pocktry” band?? It’s safe to say, whatever your musical taste, they will have something for you.

Horn Section: Not too many bands are able to boast a 3 piece horn section. This allows them to play a bigger variety of tunes without sacrificing quality. Throw in some choreography and the crowd goes wild.

Everyone Sings: Boogie & the Yo-Yoz prides itself in diversity. They have the ability to cater to all tastes in music due to their vocal and instrumental flexibility.

Production: Every event is different, and they have the resources to accommodate every situation. They travel with a seasoned sound company that has the ability to provide sound and lighting for crowds from 20 to 20,000.

Professionalism: Fun is the biggest perk of their job; however, they do view their performances as jobs and treat every event with the respect that it demands.

Energy: You know that phrase “give 110%”? Well, they invented it. They are always moving, singing, and entertaining. One 30 minute break is all they require for a full four hour show.

MISSION STATEMENT:
“No matter who you are or how your day was, you will have fun with us.”

BIG MOUTH & THE POWER TOOL HORNS

Big Mouth was originally formed by Jay Whitney in 1980 in and around Flint, MI. The bands focus at that time was to play an eclectic mix of blues, jazz, and original music. The band flourished for a number of years playing club dates and festivals throughout Michigan. The band stopped when a few of its members went on the road with other touring bands.

Jay Whitney moved to Door County in 1989 and formed a new Big Mouth with Pat Judy, Woody Mankowski, and Paul Sowinski in 1990. After reaching a level of success in Door County and Green Bay, the band decided to add a horn section, this being the birth of the Power Tool Horns. Over the years players have come and gone, but the band’s focus is still the same as it was originally in 1980. And everyone is still having a blast!
