The FrostKings are an R&B, swing, and blues band originating from the North Jersey area. Familiar to music fans in Northern New Jersey, and Southern New York State, the FrostKings have played many festivals and venues over the years. 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 their Icey-Cold tones. So chill out with the FrostKings!
