Born in 2012, the Wobblers are gaining notoriety as one of the Upstate's most unique roots bands. With a heavy emphasis on New Orleans style rhythms and unique instrumentation, the band pulls from a wide variety of influences. Gospel blues,organ-heavy,hard-bop jazz, and old-school twangy country make for a well-rounded and high energy show.

The 4 piece band, originally formed to play just one show, stumbled on a sound reminiscent of the 60's Memphis soul/Stax records. They soon added horns to further enrich their sonic palette.

Lead by keyboardist/vocalist Evan Dehner, the band has been honing its sound over the past couple of years, arranging and rearranging "not so well-known" songs that feature the sound of the Hammond organ, horns, and vocal harmonies. Currently working on a number of jazz standards, the band continues to evolve, always adding new songs to the set to keep things fresh.
