On Friday, October 1st from 6-8pm the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts invites guests to the Downtown Concert Series, presented by Blue Ridge Mountain Sports, *The Provident Bank, Madison Honda and Whole Foods*, featuring the R&B/swing/blues band The FrostKings.

The FrostKings are a R&B, swing and blues band originating from the North Jersey area. The FrostKings have played many festivals and venues throughout the state over the last few years. Some of their recent performances include: The Restaurant, Kristine's Swing Dances, the Chester Jazz & Blues Festival, the Morris and Somerset County 4H Fairs, Morristown Festival in the Green, Attilio's Tavern, and the Westfield and Montville Libraries.

The band features Jim Davis (Saxophone/Clarinet), Big Al Krotoff (Guitar/Vocals), Brad Vickers (Bass) and Harry "Hurricane" Fiorilli (drums). Together for over eight years, they have blended their diverse musical stylings and backgrounds to form one tight-knit band. 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. If you're not already a swing-blues fan, you will be after hearing the Icey-Cold tones of the FrostKings!

Come out and enjoy the final concert of the season!
