This September, in collaboration with some of Minneapolis’s most prominent artists, activists, and community support organizations, we present Frogleg Thursdays: #UNITY Edition. This series is about joy, love, and camaraderie with friends, family, and fellow humans. Just as importantly, this series is about sharing, lifting, giving, and advocating to and for people in need within our city. Each week, a portion of proceeds will go directly to local orgs such as Families Supporting Families Against Police Violence, TruArt Speaks, and The D.I.V.I.N.E. Institute. Major drives for food, clothing, and health items will also be held on-site for donation to local homeless camps, shelters, and pantries. Here’s an opportunity to do good, y’all. Let’s show everyone what Frogleg Family is all about. In September, we boogie for a purpose! #UNITY!

Frogleg is an island breeze, a highway cruise with the windows down, a mountainside ramble, a New Orleans night out. Their music is steeped in sounds and lyricism of improvisational rock and roll, reggae, soul, carribean jazz, bluegrass, americana, and folk, among others – if it has to be contained to a category, World music suits it best. Chock-full of impressive songwriting ability and instrumental virtuosity, and with two released full-length studio albums, a live album and a third studio album in the chute, this 6-piece ensemble of artistry has nowhere to go but up.
