About this Artist
Woolworthy was a dynamic alternative/indie rock band hailing from the vibrant 90’s music scene of Chicago that launched the likes of Veruca Salt, Local H, The Smoking Popes, Triple Fast Action, and many more. Formed by members Rudy Gonzalez (vocals/guitar) and Rick Uncapher (bass), they burst onto the local scene in 1995, playing raw and energetic songs influenced by bands like The Replacements, early Goo Goo Dolls, Soul Asylum, and Green Day.
Woolworthy toured the Midwest, the UK, and Europe, sharing the stage with notable acts of the time such as Plain White T’s, Unwritten Law, Sugarcult, Lucky Boys Confusion, and Local H, but after numerous lineup changes, the band came to an end in 2005. Members went on to play in or were involved with numerous Chicago bands such as The Dead On, Noise By Numbers, Textbook, Caviar, Loud Lucy, Muchacha, Dan Vapid and the Cheats, and The Cells.
The band has recently reformed and are gearing up to release a new LP in November of 2023 via Boss Tuneage Records.
