Alt. Blues On Stage Logo

The Boogiemen are a five piece rockin’ blues band from the Twin Cities. Playing an energetic blend of rock, blues, R&B and rockabilly, the band blends strong vocal interpretations backed by an array of exciting soloists (guitar, piano, and harmonica) and a tight, solid, no-nonsense rhythm section. Over the past 11 years, the Boogiemen have won the hearts of music fans wherever they play.

The members of the band include Paul Bergen on guitar and vocals, Chuck Edwards on vocals and harmonica, Glenn Manske on keyboards and vocals, Paul Manske on bass and vocals, and Joel Richmond on drums. The band’s first CD, "Scream ‘n’ Howl," received widespread acclaim by both critics and fans across the country. 1997 saw the release of their second Blue Loon album, "Boogie Time," which was nominated by the Minnesota Music Awards for best blues recording of the year.

More than just a bar band, the Boogiemen have appeared on concert stages with such diverse acts as Koko Taylor, N.R.B.Q., The Band, Jimmie Vaughan, Sonny Landreth, Mitch Ryder, Lonnie Brooks, Canned Heat, Johnny Winter, Lazy Lester and George Thorogood. Whether you see the Boogiemen in a smoky bar or on a festival stage, you can expect a unique musical experience that begins at the roots of American music and winds its way through streets and back alleys paved with rock ‘n’ roll, blues, R&B and rockabilly. The Boogiemen bring it all home with exciting energy and style that won’t let you stand still.

The Boogiemen will be playing at Kegler's Incline Station after the festival on Friday night.
