Froggy Fresh, Those Lavender Whales, TBA
122 State St.
West Columbia, SC, 29169
The Internet tells a legend of a kid named Froggy Fresh who fought a great white shark and mastered Youtube. These are but a few of his vast accomplishments, which include being endorsed by John Cena and featured on Tosh.0 but also being a good best friend and recovering neighborhood kid’s stolen bikes. Formerly known as Krispy Kreme, a cease and desist rendered a fan-voted name change and the name 'Froggy Fresh' was chosen over 'Jelly Bean Jack'. Enduring a naming, branding, and content change, Money Maker (Re-Loaded) still debuted and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Comedy Album chart. After 5 years of being shrouded in mystery, Froggy Fresh has decided to transition to being a comedic actor and move to LA, but not without teaming up with DJ Justin Aswell doing a live tour first. This summer catch the “Baddest of them All” while you can.
Those Lavender Whales
Aaron Graves started making patch-work pop songs under the name Those Lavender Whales in his dorm room in 2003. These occasional songs were sent to friends and family and then compiled onto handmade CD-r’s every couple of seasons. In 2011, Graves moved from Nashville, TN back to his hometown of Columbia, SC with his wife, and baby daughter. 2012 saw the release of Those Lavender Whales’ first full length “Tomahawk of Praise” which was filled with off-kilter pop melodies and lush arrangements of folksy instruments.
Those Lavender Whales most recent output is a 5-song EP titled “Parts & Pieces/Goose & Geeses.” Recorded at home over the summer months of 2013 with the help of his now consistent live band (including Jessica Bornick, Chris Gardner, and Patrick Wall), the songs play out much like a conversation with a new friend: starting casually and easing into matters closer to the heart and the spirit.
