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.

Arthur “L.A.” Buckner‘s deep infatuation with music began at an early age. At age 3 he would practically go an entire church service without looking away from the drums. His father took notice and shortly thereafter purchased his first drum kit. L.A. Buckner is a performing musician, teaching artist, and producer from the Northside of Minneapolis. He holds a Master’s degree in Percussion Performance from McNally Smith College of Music, and is an instructor for the MacPhail Center for Music, and the St.Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists. Currently, LA serves as co-host for the PBS music education YouTube series “Sound Field”. In August of 2020, LA took iTunes by storm with the release of his project BiG HOMiE, which reached the #1 Jazz position within 24 hours of its release. His artistry is full of energy, excitement, culture and excellence.
