Andy Frasco of Andy Frasco & The U.N. and Andy Fraso’s World Saving Podcast joins the No Simple Road Crew on The Porch for a morning filled with laughs, unexpected therapy, and creating connection. We talk candidly about addiction & getting it together, making choices based on what we think we’re supposed to do rather than what we want, Andy’s new album ‘Change Of Pace’, and why we are only just now finding out we should have been friends a long time ago.
Andy Frasco & the U.N.’s performances have been described as a “boisterous blend of harmonic funk and jazzy influences, all topped with boundless energy”. Frasco frequently calls additional guest musicians to join his band on stage during sets, as well as fans. Shows are highly improvisational featuring impromptu “battles” between band members, who graciously hop off stage into the crowd to contest their instrumental fortitude against one another in a sporting display of individual musicianship. Frasco’s shows are also highly interactive, often stopping the show to speak directly to audience members, as well as invite people in the audience up on stage.
