We are The Fattenin' Frogs and we play Rock & Roll music in it's original spirit by turning up the intensity on traditional American music. With a style developed by mixing blues, country, folk, R&B, gospel, bluegrass, and rockabilly and adding in a 1960's influenced rock drummer, we aim to help bring rock music back to it's roots. Expect to hear a mix of original songs and interpretations of classic songs by artists such as Charley Patton, Leadbelly, Son House, Woody Guthrie and The Carter Family. We believe in the importance of using musical versatility and creative singing to bring out the full potential of every song. We also believe that the show is more than just the music. Come on out ready to sing, clap and dance along with us and celebrate the great tradition of American music.
JACK BRASS BAND
15 years of brass band adventures. 4 CDs, 3 Countries, and a whole ton of fun.
The Bitterroot Band was founded on the ideals of energetic simplicity. With this in mind, The Bitterroot Band strives to deliver an honest message in the clearest way possible.
Consisting of four members, The Bitterroot Band uses traditional folk-minded four part harmonies with honest and meaningful lyrics to deliver a passionate and soul stirring performance. On a backbone of rebellious rock attitude and raw traditional instrumentation, band members pride themselves on an unrelenting work ethic and a deep hunger to write, perform, and entertain.
The Bitterroot Band is known for crafting a rowdy live performance that inspires crowds to move to every tune. The Bitterroot Band honed their style at a weekly open mic night at a dive bar in Southern Minnesota. Their performance spread by word of mouth until the bar was at maximum capacity every Thursday. When the dance floor was full, folks danced on tables. The Bitterroot Band strives for such wild performances at every show.
With the release of their first official recordings entitled "The Mason Jar EP" in February of 2012, The Bitterroot Bands momentum is continuing to grow and The Band is poised to take their sound to anywhere that welcomes their own brand of lyric driven, foot moving, folk music
