  • Albino Frogs 2016 a

    The Albino Frogs

    • Time: 3:30pm
    • Info: The Albino Frogs biog says: "They are simply known as “The Frogs” to their ever growing number of followers supporting their smiling upbeat music, This five piece band from the South Wales Valleys appeals to all ages, as they deal out plenty of funky Latin rocky grooves, which get your foot tapping and the body swaying. It doesn’t end there, there's also some jazz and country thrown into the mix for good measure. The song writing is top draw; it gets you going with instantly hummable melodies and memorable hooks, so much so that by the second chorus you are easily singing along. Solid yet funky bass, drums, and percussion are provided by Daryl Cook, Dai Lewis, and Remo Lusardi, serving to underpin the slap and tickle guitar style, and powerful vocal of Ian Day, while Ric Lawton’s virtuoso saxophone, puts the icing on the cake.With 3 and 4 part vocal harmonies in abundance, The Frogs generate a very full tight and inspiring sound. Its Steely Dan meets Huw and Cry meets Little Feet, for those who like comparisons, but for this band, truly original and quirky is what they’re about."   “Album review. Artist : Albino Frogs Title : Big Dog (2016) Albino Frogs are not what you expect - 5 middle aged folkies they are not. Think instead, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, Was Not Was, Tom Scott or any of those smooth US jazz influenced bands - there's even a bit of Robbie Robertson in there ! 'Big Dog' is their third album and what an album it is ! Great songwriting and playing from Ian Day and the musicianship is superb too - solid grooves from Dai Lewis and Remo Lusardi with sublime bass playing from Daz Cook, but what puts these guys head and shoulders above their contemporaries is the addition of Ric Lawton on Sax & flute. If you get the chance to see these guys live grab it with both hands and get a hold of 'Big Dog' now ! Further suggested listening : The Loop / Dragon's Rock. www.reverbnation.com/albinofrogs” — Mike Kennedy, Welsh Connections

All performed with excellent musicianship, vocal harmonies and peppered with a great deal of fun, they are always well received by their audiences. The band likes to get the audience involved, singing and dancing, and are not a ‘finger in the ear’ type of band by any means!
