Boogie & the Yo-Yoz - Presented by Jim & Jan Docksey and Aaron & Rachel Widiker

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.


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.

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