|Come November 14th, Andy Frasco will bring his enigmatic style of party blues to crowds of admirers at Moody’s Bistro, a lounge located in the Truckee Hotel, a historical building constructed in 1873. The twenty-three-year-old Frasco musician hails from the San Fernando Valley, a Southern California melting pot of sorts—much like his sphere of musical influence. Drawing from the sounds of Damien Rice, Same Cooke, and Tom Waits, there is plenty of rhyme but little of reason to his sound. But there is no denying its enduring rifts and melodic mood swings.Frasco has affectionately been referred to as the “Second Coming” of blues music for a generation seemingly unaware of the genre’s influence. The young musical vagabond has traveled many miles in his short years, trekking over 120,000 miles and performing at over 700 shows—some spent standing in dirt fields amidst strangers; others seated, projecting sounds to thousands of fans.
Frasco has long been in tune with the music business. At 16, he managed and promoted local bands, only to later book bands at famous venues at the Drive Thru and The Key Club in Hollywood. Andy’s voice wavers between soft and raspy, commanding attention from every crowd as it harmonizes with his fingers, which dance across the keys of Yamaha electric pianos, and Nord organs. Swing by Moody’s and witness a dynamic musician in his element, playing a venue that reflects his inventive, imaginative style.
