Twin Cities jam band Frogleg crammed all seven of its members onto a tiny Java House stage for this episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," so it's no wonder why their music sounds so tight.
Join Java Blend host Ben Kieffer and listen in to the free podcast below to hear the group's stellar musicianship, infectious grooves, and dazzling chemistry.
Frogleg is a fresh young band out of Minneapolis. Since their first show in late 2012, a major buzz about the band Frogleg has been spreading throughout the Twin Cities music scene stemming from their ever-growing weekly tradition, “Frogleg Thursdays @ Bunkers Music Bar & Grill” in downtown Minneapolis. Outside of Bunker’s, the band has now headlined shows at most of the major venues in Minneapolis from the Cabooze to the Skyway Theatre downtown. Frogleg has shared the stage with the Jeff Austin Band, New Orleans Suspects, Devon Allman, Orgone, Raw Oyster Cult, Samantha Fish, to name a few.
Known for their songwriting and improvisational live performances, this seven piece would be best described as a soul band, as their influences are not drawn from one specific genre. A typical Frogleg show will usually features a unique blend of Funk, Reggae, Rock, Jazz and Bluegrass.
Frogleg’s debut, self-titled album was met with much excitement last year, selling out their first pressing in under six months. Despite being a 7 piece band, they have not shied away from taking this show on the road. With regional dates filling out their year, tours being planned for 2016, and talks of going back into the studio, Frogleg is showing no signs of slowing down. Do yourself a favor and go see a Frogleg show!
