Mighty Manfred and the rest of the Woggles will be hitting the West Coast in May.

The Woggles play the Regent Theater in Los Angeles on May 19; they play the Fillmore in San Francisco on May 20; the Woggles move on to The Neptune in Seattle on May 22, and play Dante’s in Portland, Ore., on May 23.

They’ve got that groovy sound and they’re just as familiar to people around the block or around the world.  The Woggles are Buzz Hagstrom, thumper; Flesh Hammer, picker; The Professor Mighty Manfred, wailer and Dan Eletxro, beater.

They may be from Atlanta, but The Woggles have a more than cool ultra Southern California vibe.  Especially when Mighty Manfred goes up into the rafters above the crowd or down onto the floor.

The Woggles have amassed a great inventory of product and they’ve played with everyone from Dick Dale to The Troggs.
