FROGLEG
FROGLEG
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!
Simpleton & Cityfolk
Simpleton & Cityfolk
Scattered across the West Town area of Chicago, Simpleton & Cityfolk appeal to the listener with a blend of roots rock, Americana and folk. The band's roots go back to Iowa when Geoff Glenn (guitar, vocals) and Chris Bennett (guitar, vocals) met as roommates at the University of Iowa. In 2010, college over, Bennett returned home to Chicago. Glenn soon followed. Chris “Foo” Williams (bass, vocals) and John Conlon, (guitar) filled out the rest of the Cityfolk with Mike “Sku” Skowronski joining on drums after Conlon’s move to Utah.
