FOGGY MINDED BOYS AND FOGGETTES

The Foggy Minded Boys first got together at a coffeehouse at the Central Presbyterian Church in Montclair, New Jersey in 2003. There were four of them then, all vocalists: Bob Bockstiegel (banjo), Neal Day, Bill Weeks, Kirk Woodward (keyboards and musical direction). Their music included bluegrass, country, folk, popular, and a little rock music, with an emphasis on uptempo numbers and comedy, including some original songwriting. They quickly decided that the purpose of the group would be to provide free entertainment to not-for-profit organizations for fundraising events. Along the way they have added additional members, also vocalists: Larry Frick (guitar) and McPaul Smith (bass), plus frequent appearances by Bob Whiteley (bass) and Rick Van Horn (drums). In 2015 they also began working with Jane Alenbach, Martha Day, and Barbara Sabella, a vocal trio skilled in close harmonies and inevitably known as the Foggettes. In pursuit of their mission, they have given well over one hundred performances to date, for churches, hospitals, nursing homes, charitable fundraisers, and public performances of all kinds, including the Pomona (NY) Music Festival.
