The Andy Frasco Band will be at The Marketplace Cafe in the outlets mall in the Village of Oak Creek on Sunday.

The Marketplace Cafe announces the third Sedona performance by the "Andy Frasco Band" Sunday April 15, 6-9 p.m. Andy Frasco, a 23-year-old blues/jazz musician hailing from the San Fernando Valley in Southern California, is nothing short of an enigma. Influenced by Damien Rice, Sam Cooke, Professor Longhair, Van Morrison and Tom Waits, Frasco's style is as uninhibited as those artists who inspire him. Let's 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. Frasco's journey, however, is just beginning. This revolutionary is on a mission to alter the music business as we know it.  He has performed twice in Sedona while traveling the Southwest and has started to get a local following.

Frasco does not come from a musical background. His family played no instruments, and it wasn't 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 VH1's 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 wasn't enough for this young prodigy. Frasco headed back to Los Angeles to form his own band and produce his third and current album, Love, You're 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 and John Mayer.

In 2011 alone, Frasco received musician of the year at showcases such as Sundance Film Festival, HatchFest, Orion's 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.  For more details go to www.andyfrasco.com or call the Marketplace Cafe at (928) 284-5478.  Andy's performance will get you dancing, laughing and letting go. This New Orleans style blues band suggests you make reservations.
