Influenced by Damien Rice, Sam Cooke, Professor Longhair, Van Morrison and Tom Waits, Frascos style is as uninhibited as those artists who inspire him. Lets call it Party Blues.Within the past three years alone, Frasco has trekked over 120,000 miles, performed over 700 shows, with spanning over 6 countries. Frascos journey, however, is just beginning. This revolutionary is on a mission to alter the music business as we know it.Frascos a rarity in the music business: one who is an industry insider and a talented musician. This unparalleled insight is due, in part, to his days of managing and promoting bands when he was 16 years old. Hes booked bands like HelloGoodbye, and worked with labels and venues such as Drive Thru, Atlantic Records and The Key Club in Hollywood, Ca.Whats more, Frasco does not come from a musical background. His family played no instruments, and it wasnt until the age of 17 that Frasco met his soul mate: the piano. At 19 years old, Frasco traveled to New York to work with friend and colleague Jordan Stilwell, producing his first album Growth and Progress. From there, Frasco toured the country with VH1s Save the Music Foundation, raising money for Music Education in the Public Schools.Yet 220 shows in 360 days through 33 states that he personally booked on the Save the Music Tour wasnt enough for this young prodigy. Frasco headed back to Los Angeles to form his own band and produce his third and current album, Love, Youre Just Too Expensive. Frasco continues to prove that he is a dynamic force with which to be reckoned, as listeners marvel at his talent and soulful performances wherever he goes.Andy Frasco has jammed with artists such as Leon Russell, Galactic, Jakob Dylan, Pretty Lights, Butch Walker, The Flobots, Spill Canvas, Suburban Legends, Nural, Tyler Hilton, & John Mayer.In 2011 alone, Frasco received musician of the year at showcases such as Sundance Film Festival, HatchFest, Orions Music Festival and the European Independent Film Festival.Frasco may just be the Second Coming of blues music for this emerging generation, changing the course of mainstream music in a blazing path of glory that will someday take him home.Andy Plays:Yamaha CP 33 Electric PianoNord N2 OrganMotion Sound Kp 500 Power AmpMotion Sound Pro 3x Leslie Rotary

Thursday December 26th we have Eliot Lipp (Brooklyn, New York) with Pool Party (San Diego, CA) performing live at Whiskey Jacques! Doors at 9:00p.m. $8.00 presale tickets and $10.00 day of show/behind bar. For more info on Eliot Lipp go to: http://eliotlipp.com/ For more info on Pool Party go to: http://www.poolpartyband.com/Eliot Lipp BIO:After more than eight years of global touring, seven solo albums, countless collaborations, label-head tastemaking and vital artist-incubator in the USAs most critical beat-making cities (SF, Chicago, NYC), Eliot Lipps status as an electronic music pioneer is known to scene connoisseurs and weekend warriors alike. Lipps omnivorous tastes are apparent, from the obvious funk and myriad manifestations of hip-hop though less explicit reference points as jazz fusion, folk and techno. His well-earned reputation as a producers producer stems, in part, from his craftsmanship. Never content with well-worn breaks and effects, his work incorporates a fetishistic love of analogue gear with sampledelic flourishes, intricate rhythmic patterns and more than a few leftfield surprises. But his melodic instincts and tunefulness are what have earned him such wide appeal, his songwriterly connection to musics storytelling possibilities, even without words.When Eliot Lipp first arrived on the scene with his self-titled solo album in 2004 (Eastern Development), he seemed to have a fully formed aesthetic out of the gates. Lipp displayed an intuitive knack for teasing earwormy melodies out of rhythmic bangers, and drew from a remarkably mature sonic palette two qualities that immediately set the young instrumental producer apart from his oft-indistinguishable beatmaking brethren. Since that promising debut, Lipp has played to his strengths while creating an imposing body of work with a style uniquely his own.After spending formative, collegiate years in San Francisco, Lipp found his next home of Chicagoalong with label Hefty Records and the fertile, exploratory music scene that surrounded himto be an indisputable font of inspiration that resulted in two full-lengths in 2006. Lipps Tacoma Mockingbird recordnamed in homage to his boyhood home in Washington Stateis a study in contradictions, as back-to-basics hip-hop and electro breaks underpin a more nuanced approach. He soon followed with Steele Street Scraps, a record that makes great use of some of his many collaborators. While it cant be said that his Chicago years resulted in the post-rock phase one might expect from his associates, it seems to have laid the groundwork for greater compositional maturity to come.After time immersed in Los Angeles vibrant community of producers, Lipp crossed the continent to set up shop in Brooklyn. His 2007 album, City Synthesis (Metatronix), is notable for its relaxed tempo, while the following years The Outside (Mush Records) proved to be a thorough artistic breakthrough, his most formally complex and emotionally engaging work yet. Lipps irrepressible creativity found another outlet in his Old Tacoma Records label, offering the opportunity for more diverse collaborations and a greater range of expressiveness. That freedom yielded 2009s Peace Love Weed 3D: a release that upped the electronic ante and supplemented his boom-bap instincts with futurefunk details. He followed this with collaboration from long-time friend and producer Jasia 10 for How We Do: Moves Made (2011).2012 has been a year of milestones for Eliot. He signed with internationally renowned Pretty Lights Music, through which he released his most recent album, Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake, digitally and on vinyl. Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake is a bubbling cauldron filled with anything and everythingfrom 80s synthpop jams through jazzy funk to hiphop, with underlying electro breakdowns throughout. As Urb magazine puts it, this album is for the listener whos as passionate about different music as he is. His savant-like creativity earned Eliot recognition by Jay-Z in his blog Life and Times, with a premier of Eliots latest track Wonderland. As Eliot continues to share his signature sound you can count on the unpredictability of what youll hear from him next. Pool Party BIO:Pool Party is an electronic infused hip hop band and production team from San Diego.

Saturday January 18th we have Murs (L.A.) performing live with Jabee, Marley B., and Cash Lansky opening!! Doors at 9p.m. $8.00 advance tickets for purchase online or $10.00 at the door/behind the bar. For more info on Murs go to: http://www.mursworld.com/blog/music/Murs BIO:A longtime friend of Definitive Jux leader El-P, rapper Murs first appeared as a solo artist in 2003, after nearly a decade of working with various groups in the underground. Based in Los Angeles, his first single was released in 1993, and came from a self-released album by his first group, 3 Melancholy Gypsies. The track barely made a dent, but it did catch the attention of indie hip-hop fans in the area. Over time, the group members became friends with Mystik Journeymen, who asked 3MG (their shortened name) to join them when they started the Living Legends collective in 1996. Between both 3MG and the Living Legends, Murs rapped on several influential indie rap albums, appearing on more than 20 records, EPs, and singles within a seven-year period. When El-P started to pull together his Def Jux label, Murs contacted the producer and told him he would release his solo record for the company once he had the opportunity. His commitments to both the Legends and 3MG often kept him from working on the album, but after a few years of slowly putting together tracks, Murs finally delivered The End of the Beginning in the spring of 2003. Featuring flashier production than his group projects, the album was more in tune with a mainstream hip-hop record, though projects with Anticon rapper Slug under the name Felt -- A Tribute to Christina Ricci and A Tribute to Lisa Bonet -- unveiled a more experimental side to his artistry. The rapper returned to solo work with Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition, a collaboration with producer 9th Wonder, in 2004. One of the tracks from that album, "Walk Like a Man," inspired a movie starring Murs himself, along with Damien Wigfall. The soundtrack, Walk Like a Man, also appeared in mid-2005. Murs teamed up again with 9th Wonder to release Murray's Revenge in 2006. Two years later, he jumped to the majors for a contract with Warner Bros., which yielded Murs for President, with appropriately major-label features for will.i.am and Snoop Dogg. Another two years later, Murs reunited with 9th Wonder to make Fornever. His 2011 effort Love + Rockets, Vol. 1: The Transformation was produced solely by Ski Beatz, while 2012's The Final Adventure found him partnering with 9th Wonder one last album.
