Frankie McQueen is a Calgary based power blues trio. Taking the “balls out” approach when it comes to their live show, Frankie McQueen likes to leave the stage and their audience whisky and beer soaked. Encompassing the attitude of Seattle grunge and the swagger of ZZ-Top, these guys are not afraid to take risks and are more likely to have a beer with a fan than sign an autograph. The stage is where this trio feels most at home and their onstage chemistry shows true brotherhood.
Formed in 2007 by vocalist Scotty Charles and drummer Connor Muth, this bluesy three piece has worked hard to get their music across the country. The addition of bassist Corey Adams was a huge stepping stone in creating the sound that they now posses. It was the catalyst to turn this rock group into a band of brothers playing groove based rock n’ roll with soulful melodies, tight drums, and groovy bass lines with the odd screaming solo peppered in.
Since the release of their self titled EP in the spring of 2012 Frankie McQueen has had the opportunity to open for the likes of Sam Roberts Band, Flash Lightnin’, Bedouin Soundclash, and Daniel Wesley (to name a few) and have also teamed up with Art Szabo of Sfear Management. Having the philosophy that they have to get out and cut their teeth on the road, FMQ is not afraid to work day and night.
Recently in June 2014, the band released their second EP “Nightride”, recorded and produced by Kirill Telichev. They will spend the next year touring throughout Canada including shows from Vancouver all the way to Toronto.
