Scruggs and the Steelbenders will take the stage in the Yew Wood Corral all three nights following the July 11-13 Philomath rodeos. One of the band’s members, Matthew Scruggs, had a memorable appearance last summer in the city’s Music in the Park series.
“After the band was all done, he just stood up there with his guitar and did some of his own numbers and so everybody just stuck around for another hour,” the Frolic’s Chris Workman said. “His uncle came up and played with him for a number and his niece or cousin or somebody played with him for a number, but he just kinda took over the show jamming for the last hour and everybody just sat around listening.”

The band is excited to be featured as the Frolic’s dance band this summer.
“It’s nice to not have to pull from the Portland market and have that kind of talent locally to be at the Frolic,” Workman said about the Alsea-based band. “If you talk to him (Matthew Scruggs), he’s super excited to play the Frolic. This is the big time for him. He’s just thrilled to play in front of his family and friends. He’s come to the Frolic his whole life and now he gets to play, so he’s pretty excited about it.”
