Paradoxical Frog, they play music that is challenging, exciting, multi-directional and dynamically impressive (truly "a whisper to a scream.") They have 2 CDs, both issued on Clean Feed Recordings, but seem to thrive better in the "live" setting.
Paradoxical Frog plays 2 sets - 8:30 and 10 p.m. - and you can find out more by going to firehouse12.com or calling 203-785-0468. To get a taste of the trio's music, go to ingridlaubrock.com/paradoxical-frog-the-band.html.
Opening the show at 7:30 p.m. is guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and his Band - Shepherd burst onto the blues scene with a huge bang early in the 21st Century and continues to grow as both a player and composer. For ticket information, go to www.warnertheatre.com or call 860-489-7180.
