Still working on that hot first release.



Choogy was formed in the summer of 2006 by former members of two original hardcore Milwaukee bands, Kook, Sketchy and White Knuckle Trip. The concept behind the idea was fun, fun and more fun. With years of recording experience , and playing in original local Milwaukee bands, the foursome decided it was time to change things up a bit and put a cover band together. Being long-time friends, practical jokers, and having mutual respect for each other and their individual abilities, things started off with a bang. Realizing that they had good chemistry between them, and a variety of influences to draw from, the band soon had a plethora of options to work with. As the weeks passed, the band was learning songs from artists like: Seether, Nirvana, STP, and Foo Fighters. But before long, they decided to break the mold and venture into new territory, with songs from Primus, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Cake. The variety of music proved to be a good idea. Not limiting themselves to one style kept the interest of the band, and presented new challenges every week. Choogy’s first show was at Fox Run Lanes on Halloween in 2006, where a packed house fed off the energy of the band, and the music. Still sporting their Kook and WKT t-shirts, the fans have not forgotten what it’s all about… FUN… MUSIC…and Milwaukee’s finest product… BEER! In the fall of 2007 Choogy was blessed with a fifth member... a guitarist by the name of Doug Lohr, or as friends know him-"Dougy Fresh". Doug helped to complete the project by bringing a fun attitude and a plethora of guitar ability to the table. The now 5 piece project, hopes to capture the fun lovin', beer drinkin', Milwaukee party crowd with a mix of dancin' rock tunes and 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's rock hits. Choogy has enjoyed playing throughout the 2008 year at Rooters, Liquor Sweets, Waukesha County Fair, Taste of Summer and Blarney Island, and has had the pleasure of playing with such bands as: Bellevue Suite, Tattooed, Marishino and Footos.
