(December 21, 2012) – On Saturday, January 12 at 2:00 p.m. the FrostKings will play at the Westfield Memorial Library. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.
The FrostKings are a Rhythm and Blues, swing band from the North Jersey area. They have played many festivals and venues over the last few years including J&R Cigars, Kristine’s Swing Dances and the Chester Jazz & Blues Festival.
The FrostKings are equally at home playing swinging shuffles, slow blues or full-tilt boogies. Their repertoire ranges from the West Coast swing stylings of Louis Jordan and T-Bone Walker, to the classic blues of Luther Johnson, B.B. King, Eddie 'Clean Head' Vinson and Muddy Waters, to the R&B of Wilson Pickett and Herbie Hancock. It may be chilly outside, but somehow the icy cold tones of the FrostKings warm up any afternoon.
The show is free and open to Westfield Memorial Library and MURAL cardholders. MURAL cardholders belong to libraries that are part of the Middlesex Union Reciprocal Agreement Libraries.
