frobeck = funk rock awesomeness

 

Hailing from the San Francisco bay area, Frobeck has been astonishing audiences with their unique blend of Pop, Funk, and Rock music since 2005. Their high-octane vocals, well crafted songs, and world-class musicianship has earned them two NORBAY music awards, grammy interest, and multiple appearances as openers to national and international acts. Boasting a full lineup of bass, drums, guitars, keys replete with sultry backing vocals and an earth-shaking horn section, Frobeck has crossed into the realm of their musical heroes: Tower of Power, The Sons of Champlin, and Stevie Wonder.

People say...

“This is about the best band I’ve heard in I don’t know....This Shit is good!...This shit is really really good! Spencer is one of the best singers I’ve ever heard...ever.”

Bill Champlin - Sons of Champlin and former singer for Chicago

"listened to a new CD recently by a north bay band called Frobeck. The CD is refreshingly good. The band really plays well together and they’re very musical with a good rhythm section and powerful vocals. The songwriting is also a real strong point. At times they brought back very fond memories of my time playing with Little Feat yet they seem to be finding their own unique voice.”

Emilio Castillo - Tower of Power

“Favorite CD of the Year! Not Just Locally, but maybe as good as it gets....and, Spencer Burrows is the most soulful singer I’ve heard in these parts, probably since Bill Champlin.”

Bob Brown - Manager: Pablo Cruise, former manager of Huey Lewis & the News, Owner: Rancho Nicasio

"The 'sea of truth' is this idea that the truth is a vast, huge thing, much bigger than us, and it can either be a beautiful thing or it can be tragic," says Burrows. Despite its heavy undertones, the album is anything but somber, as Frobeck bursts out of their past for a robust, upbeat and vivacious collection of songs."

CHARLIE SWANSON - Bohemian

"They remind me of Tower of Power with the Rhythmic Touch of Stevie Wonder."

Jerry Pompili - former V.P. of Bill Graham Presents

“ This is The best band in Sonoma County these Days.”

Steve Jackson - KSRO 1350 radio host
