Andy Frasco & the U.N. are more than a band. They are a force of nature. Over the last several years, their international stardom has been fueled by multiple factors; breathtaking live performances being at the top of the list. The perpetually barefoot pianist and frontman with the famous fro is incapable of holding anything back. Along with his band of killers who all have Spinal Tap type personalities of their own, they catapult audiences into the thralls of party rock, seductive soul and primal boogie. You might also get pinballed around the dancefloor with some classic hip hop and even some stuff heavy enough to mosh to. Amidst all the madness, there is no shortage of powerful lyrical messages. Frasco doesn’t just want you to have a good time. He cares deeply about people and doling out provocative lightning bolts of inspiration.
This will be Frasco’s fourth time here and frankly we can hardly believe he keeps coming back. They guy sells out Red Rocks yet feels strongly enough about the Crazy Horse to once again make it the most intimate stop on his tour. Experiencing Andy Frasco & the U.N. in a venue this small is a treat of immense proportions considering the way they continue to blow up. Their many festival appearances include Bonnaroo, Peach Music Festival, Summer Camp, High Sierra and Lock’n playing in front of thousands of ecstatic fans. They tour all over Europe and hold court at America’s finest clubs and theaters. The energy reciprocation between band and audience is truly remarkable, as each pushes the other further over the brink of ecstasy as the night progresses.
Frasco’s persona is intertwined with the music while also existing in a realm of its own. His World Saving Podcast, World Saving Shitshow on Facebook and infamous online dance parties continue to fan the flames of his lovable mystique. Need we say more?
Fusing elements of rock, pop, funk and improvisation, Big Something take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. It’s no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the Southeast. Huge rhythms paired with soaring guitars, E.W.I. (electronic wind instrument), synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has landed the band marquee appearances at Bonnaroo, Peach Music Festival, Lock’n, Summer Camp and Electric Forest. In the process, they have earned critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Guitar World, Glide Magazine and Jambase.
With six full-length studio albums produced by Grammy-nominess John Custer, and even their own summer music festival – The Big What?, the band has carved out its own unique niche in the live music community. The fact that we have them here at the Crazy Horse, let alone as a support act for Andy Frasco and The U.N. is nothing short of mindboggling.
