Jazz@the CAM: FROG Project

Thursday, November 1, 2018, 6:30-8:30 PM

It’s been quite some time since the series last had a concert by the FROG Project, a dynamic collective of keyboardist Kevin Kolb, flutist/saxophonist Teddy Burgh, percussionist Troy Pierce, and bassist Ryan Woodall. In late 2009, through the brainstorm and probing of Kevin Kolb, the four came together in his FROG (Finished Room over the Garage) and began to create. The chemistry was immediate, and the FROG Project was born. With influences from numerous musical genres, including but not limited to jazz, pop, and world music, the group performs original compositions and fresh innovative arrangements of familiar items.
