Tonight’s Alive After Five will feature Andy Frasco and The U.N., a funky and energetic party blues band. Southern California native Andy Frasco, a quick-witted afro-clad 23-year-old, will get Boiseans moving with his jazz and blues style that was inspired by artists such as Damien Rice, Sam Cooke and Van Morrison.
Frasco began his love affair with music at the age of 17, when he met his soul mate—the piano. Shortly thereafter, he toured the United States with VH1’s Save the Music Foundation, playing 220 shows in 360 days to raise money for music education in the public school system.
Frasco heads up vocals for the band and plays multiple instruments, including the electric piano. Joining Frasco are saxophonist Ernie Chang, also known as “The Wiz” or “The Asian Tom Cruise,” and guitarist Shawn Eckels.
Opening for Andy Frasco and The U.N. is local narrative hip-hop group Dedicated Servers. Members MCMD and Peanut will showcase their lyrical skills to the compositions of Resident Genius.
