Andy Frasco & the U.N.

When: Thursdays, Fridays, 8 p.m. Continues through Jan. 23 2015

The Afro-ed Andy Frasco didn't become acquainted with his instrument of choice, the piano, until he was 17, but as soon as he set his fingers to the keys, the world recognized that the two were simply meant for each other. Frasco's deft but playful piano-tickling is bluesy, jazzy and party-friendly, and his voice blends gravelly grit and soulful croon, all backed by his full band, The U.N. In the past year, they've been hitting the festival circuit hard here at home and overseas, all in support of their latest album, 2014's brassy and bold Half a Man, which continues Andy Frasco & the U.N.'s mission to have a blast with whatever they do, as well as inspire listeners to do the same. If you've had a hard week, you'll find some healing musical medicine at this show, where you can let loose and shake those hips to the U.N.'s big, sexy, in-your-face sound. After this two-night stint at The State Room, Andy Frasco & the U.N. are bringing the party to The Spur Bar & Grill on Sunday. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
