Frog Holler – Electrifying Alternative Country Rock & Americana

March 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Event: fb://event/1069902070791932
Frog Holler is just back from headlining the 2024 Anchorage Folk Festival with its new EP, “For the Ages” in tow and primed for their annual visit to Bethlehem’s exclusive music listening experience, Godfrey Daniels.
Formed by Schlappich in 1996 in Shoemakersville, PA (one of the small towns in Berks County), Frog Holler started out as an acoustic bluegrass trio. But when Frog Holler became a sextet and went electric, the band shifted its focus to alternative country rock, No Depression, and Americana – and in doing so, brought a wide variety of influences (either direct or indirect) to the table. Frog Holler’s roots are not only Bill Monroe, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Buck Owens, and Bakersfield honky tonk; the band’s roots are also the Band, the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, the Byrds, Bob Dylan, John Cougar Mellencamp, and the Allman Brothers. Schlappich writes like someone who holds country, bluegrass, rock & roll, and folk in equally high regard.
The Pennsylvanians’ debut album, Couldn’t Get Along, was released on the ZoBird label in 1998. The following year, Frog Holler signed with Record Cellar (a small independent label based in the Philly suburb of Bala Cynwyd, PA) and recorded its second album, Adams Hotel Road. Record Cellar went on to release Idiots in 2001 and Railings (Frog Holler’s fourth album) in 2003. Since becoming a sextet, Frog Holler has had a few lineup changes; in 2003, the group’s lineup consisted of head honcho Schlappich (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), John Kilgore (electric and acoustic guitar, organ), Daniel Bower (drums, percussion), Mike Lavdanski (banjo, steel guitar, accordion, background vocals), Josh Sceurman (electric bass), and Todd Bartolo (steel guitar, electric guitar). Cory Heller joined in 2013 on Keyboards. Frog Holler has released three more full-length recordings and an EP, 2006’s Haywire, 2009’s Believe it or Not, 2016’s Souvenir, and 2023’s EP For the Ages.
