Fayetteville adores Andy Frasco. And as he told me right before he rocked the lounge at George’s Majestic, the feeling is mutual. Andy has been busy traveling around the nation, playing relentlessly and working on his new album. Gathering inspiration along the way, he’s learned to give his all in every show he plays. That night at George’s was no exception.
He was only traveling with R Bizzy (drums) this time, but he was supported by three Fayetteville musicians. If you didn’t know they had never played together, you wouldn’t know it. They did a great job that night and the music came together so naturally, that the mood was easy and fun. Everything started with one of Andy’s favorite covers, “Hit The Road Jack.” And from there, it went into a super jam party Frasco-style. His “Ramble Baby Ramble” brought the room alive and got him a lot of love from the crowd.
The party went on until a little before 2 A.M. when the lights at George’s came on. He sure left everyone ready for the week ahead. And him? He was ready to do it all over again the following night at another bar in town.
Check out the photos from that night after the break.
