Why hire The FROG Project?
The FROG Project is a dynamic jazz collective consisting of keyboardist Kevin Kolb, flutist/saxophonist Teddy Burgh, percussionist Troy Pierce, and bassist Ryan Woodall. With influences from numerous musical genres, the groups performs contemporary original compositions and fresh, innovative arrangements of familiar items.
In late 2009 these four heavily experienced musicians joined hands to produce a laboratory to nurture and develop a unique approach to creating music. Kevin's FROG (Finished Room Over the Garage) became home to this endeavor. The chemistry was immediate and the FROG Project was born. Hip, fresh compositions that can feel immediately familiar, yet carry the listener down many roads on the journey. The FROG Project performs at local and regional jazz festivals and other artistic venues. Sets can also be tailored for special events.
