Purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a seat.Andy Frasco,the 26-year old Los Angeles, CA native singer/songwriter/band maestro/entrepreneur/party starter/everyday hustler, and his band of gypsies The U.N. have been dubbed Party Blues with a touch of Barefoot Boogie. Frascos shows can be described as infectious, entertaining, and feel good. His performances are recognized as orchestrated chaos, inciting frenzied, undeniable good times, dancing, and perhaps even a good ole fashion freak out. Touring independently across the U.S. and Europe since he was 18 years old, Frasco first got his taste of the music industry managing and promoting bands when he was 16 years old -booking bands like Hello Goodbye, and working with labels such as Drive Thru and Atlantic Records, as well as venues like The Key Club in Hollywood, CA. Since his start, Frasco has embraced a DIY attitude and work ethic, making the road his home; averaging 200+ dates a year over the past seven years, trekking over 200,000 thousand miles spanning the country dozens of times over, blowing minds and building a loyal following everywhere he goes. In 2011, Frasco was named the "New Artist to Watch" at Hatch Fest European Independent Film Festival, Orion Music Festival and Sundance Film Festival. To date, Andy has shared the stage and jammed with artists such as Leon Russell, Galactic, Jackie Greene, Gary Clark Jr, Jakob Dylan, Butch Walker, The Flobots, Deer Tick, John Mayer, Karl Densons Tiny Universe, Fishbone, Luke Nelson, Corey Smith, and more. In 2013, Frasco graced some of the finest clubs and festivals in the U.S. & Europe including Yonder Mountain String Bands Harvest Festival, String Cheese Incidents Festival at Hornings Hideout, Hatch Festival, Seattles Fremont Fair, and Sundance Film Festival to name a few. 2014, Andy will be releasing his third, full-length studio album, produced by Grammy Award winning producer Charles Goodan (Santana Supernatural), who has also produced such artists/albums as Beck Odelay and Midnight Vultures, the Rolling Stones, Primus, and No Doubt to name a few, as well as composed the scores to Fight Club and Blow. Andy and his band the U.N. will also be performing on premiere festivals such as Wakarusa, Sundance, SXSW, and Electric Forest stateside as well as Paaspop Festival and Kings Night Festival (NL), as well as making a return trip to Macau, China.Groovement is a 7-piece funk-rock band that embodies the soul of Northwest Arkansas fun, unpredictable, and full of life. Currently the band is touring the U.S. in support of their highly anticipated second album, "Clouds."Groovement sounds like an Incubus crash landed a Led Zeppelin in a funky patch of Lettuce right next to the Saint Motel while listening to Umphrey's McGee; more easily described as: high-energy funk-rock. Their catchy melodies, big harmonies, tasteful solos, and funky grooves easily create songs you can dance to. Deitra Magazine describes Groovement's music as "a surprising find of funky original tunes that got the crowd boogying out of their seats, as well as some unique renditions of unexpected covers."The playful personality and strong, soulful voice of Groovement frontman, Alex Carr, helped him win a ticket to Hollywood as one of the 2011 American Idol contestants. In addition to their decorated singer, the band posseses many years of professional experience and over 30 local award show nominations. This all-star lineup includes Adam Becker (keyboards, organ, synth); Trey Burkett (guitar, vocals); Bryan Burkhart (drums, vocals); Jacob Johnson (sax, guitar, vocals); Tom Smith (trumpet, vocals); and Carlton Rinehart (bass).Groovement has a reputation for putting on one of the most high-energy and professional live performances around. Theyve been steadily building a following in the United States midwest by being featured at some of the regions premier festivals: Wakarusa, Yonder Mountain Harvest Festival,the Backwoods Bash,Tulsas Mayfest, Phunkberry, Highberry, Hullabaloo, and more.Groovements secondalbum, "Clouds," is slated for release on August 15, 2015. You will be able to purchase it through all major online retail outlets, this website, or at any Groovement live performance.Following the release of the album, they plan to keep touring, promoting their music, and putting smiles on the faces of movers and groovers worldwide!The Low Down is an instrumental ensemble exploring their love for funky music that makes people want to dance. With influences ranging from Wes Montgomery and Jimmy Smith to Jimmy Hendrix and Booker T., the music offers a jazz sensibility while staying true to groove funk. The band formed as a side project in 2012 with Eric Wilson on drums(Justin Morrisey and Friends and Gov't Peanut Butter), Randy Leasman on Bass(The Candymakers), Craig Heidgerken on Guitar(The Uniphonics), Josh Forbes on Sax(The Candymakers) and Nick Vasquez on Keyboards(The Candymakers).*Seating Disclaimer* The Redstone Room at River Music Experience is a standing room only concert venue.
