Frogleg brings Busy Checking In for three epic shows, 1/16-17 at the Hi Ho Lounge and 1/19 at the Maple Leaf Bar

The Minneapolis-based psychedelic rock band Frogleg will be making their first appearances in New Orleans after quickly becoming sensations in the Midwest since their formation five years ago. The shows are scheduled in conjunction with the Radiators’ now-annual reunion performances at Tipitina’s.

Wednesday’s gig at the Hi Ho Lounge begins at 10 PM and will feature two full sets. Thursday’s performance is an early one beginning at 8 PM to allow fans to make the trek uptown to Tipitina’s. Frogleg is also scheduled to play Saturday night at the Maple Leaf Bar.

Though often pigeonholed in the “rock” genre, Frogleg is known for compelling and soulful songwriting and their improvisational live performances. Frogleg takes their cues from the greats of psychedelic rock. The band never plays the same set twice and mixes up their song selections with a range of musical influences including funk, reggae, and jazz.

The two shows at the Hi Ho Lounge will be Frogleg’s first appearances in New Orleans capping a span that has seen them expand their touring circuit throughout the Midwest and Mountain states. They have a deep connection with New Orleans music including appearances with members of the Radiators, the New Orleans Suspects, and Samantha Fish among others.

Their latest album, Busy Checking In, was released in 2017. The official release party featured New Orleans stalwarts George Porter, Jr. and Jon Cleary. It followed Frogleg’s self-titled debut album, which was released in April 2015.
