For better or worse, Andy Frasco has been married to the music industry since before he could grow facial hair. He’s been on road since he was 19, played over 250 shows per year for more than decade, lived on bad bar food, and slept in vans, and now, after more than a decade on the musical grind, he’s finally finding himself. Frasco collected musicians on the road to form his appropriately named band, Andy Frasco & the U.N. The current lineup includes Shawn Eckels (guitar), Andee “Beats” Avila (drums, vocals), Floyd Kellogg (bass guitar), and Ernie Chang (Saxophone). The group’s sound ping-ponged between punk, disco, and everything in between until two years into their tour of every bar in the U.S. they happened upon an old joint in Mississippi, where Frasco fell in love with the blues. Last year, they collaborated with scores of musicians to create Wash, Rinse, Repeat, which drops April 8th via Frasco’s own label, Fun Machine Records.
