Jim "Hoolie" DeCaire
Singer, songwriter, occasional drummer and leader of the
band Da Yoopers.
Hoolie started his musical career with the famous yooper band Mutti
and the Martians. DeCaire believes that all musicians are aliens by
origin and that the band will eventually be picked up by an alien
space ship. He is preparing the band to spend the rest of their lives
playing music and spreading culture throughout the universe.
Singer, keyboard player, bookings.
Lynn was discovered while playing organ at the local movie house in
Ishpeming by Hoolie DeCaire. Hoolie was devastated when his old piano
player ran off with a woman from Green Bay because she had a new pick
up truck. Hoolie was so impressed by Lynn's fast hands he offered
her $5.00 a show - she went for it.
Singer, guitarist, songwriter.
Hoolie discovered "Schween" playing his blazing gaddar
licks in an 80's psychobilly group called "The Metabolic Beavers". Hoolie
was so intrigued by "Schween's" insistence that "all music died after
the 60's and any music released other than 8-track tape or vinyl is
crappola," that He hired him on the spot, not because "Schween"
was so hot on the guitar, but because he is still waiting
- with baited breath - for the next Hank Williams Sr. album to be released.
He believes that Hank is still alive and living in Eben. Hoolie
thought, 'this is dedication' and anyone who believes this belongs
with Da Yoopers group.
"No one calls me Bob" Symons
Body-man Bob came up with the concept of combining a fast-food restaurant
with a body shop. Bob thought it would be neat if the customer could
wait and eat while their cars were being fixed. He sunk his life savings
into this venture, but never could afford to buy a microwave to thaw
out the pasties and smelt. So, he went belly-up after the first week
and now plays drums (occasionally with his lips) for Da Yoopers.
Made famous playing bass for Elmo and the Gumps, which played all
over Yooperland and spread their new style of heavy metal polka called
Polka Metal. Sadly to say, the band broke up because of lack of jobs.
He now hunts and fishes, farts on stage and performs with Da Yoopers.
