Andy Frasco and his band spent the weekend pouring their hearts out all over Dickson Street in Fayetteville, AR. Three nights, three shows, and a whole lotta soul. I decided to attend the Saturday show at Rogue after catching his warm up session at The Smoke & Barrel Tavern the previous evening, and I”m so glad I did. I had so much fun even when the show was out in the patio and the night was cold due to a cold front that rolled into town along with Frasco and the band. His piano weaves new blues rhythms in a way it makes you comfortable. No matter how cold the night is, you”d be fine as long as the music lasts.
But in case you haven”t heard of Andy Frasco before, let me tell you a little about him. He”s a 22-year-old, independent artist from suburban L.A. who”s traveling to inspire others to follow their love of music and take charge of their career. He wants to share his passion, his knowledge of the business and his stage. He started working in the music industry at 16 and then started playing the piano four years ago. He collaborates with other artists he meets on the road. Like that night at Rogue, he had invited Adam Becker, of Groovement, to play the organ. Groovement is a Fayetteville funk band and they that night right after Frasco. Another guest performer at that show was rapper Rob Warner, who added a welcomed twist to the night. Check out the rest of the review and photos after the break.
