The Wobblers, going into their 10th year in 2022 are an eight piece, genre defying, roots band in the Upstate of South Carolina. Starting in 2012 with just 4 members, two horn players were added with 2 more to follow in the following years, forming the octet they are today.
The song list has continued to change over the years, with the spawning of new songs written by various members of the band. The theme usually goes back to a New Orleans soul sound with the brassy horns and second line rhythms played by Patrick Riley on the drums, with edgy, jazz elements mixed in that evoke the likes of Rhassan Roland Kirk, Sun Ra, and Thelonious Monk (you know…..in spirit). The band takes you on a genre trip around the spectrum while always delivering a high energy professional show.
In 2019 the Wobblers released their first full album, and in 2021 released a new EP, ASTRO III, of original songs recorded by the band themselves and released on 7” vinyl.
The Wobblers have enjoyed a good following in the Upstate and neighboring regions, playing shows regularly and entrancing crowds with their diversity, energy, and soulfulness.
At the moment the band is constructing a studio where future recording will be done. Additionally there’s an album set to be recorded in the spring of 2022.
Seeing the Wobblers live, gives the audience the feeling that they're at the best party to be at that night.
