Performing: Saturday, July 9 at 12:00 pm on Nationwide Stage
Sometimes a stage name is just a given, like guitarist Harold Davis’s: FRO. One look at the Brooklyn native turned Iowa transplant makes it seem like an obvious choice. But obvious choices end there for FRO.

He's found his place locally playing with blues musicians like Scot Sutherland and pop singer Bonne Finken. He's performed with Dead Prez, Bazaar Royale, Mental Notes, Etro Anime, Toni Blackman and others, and opened shows for acts like Tower Of Power, Screaming Headless Torsos and Toots and the Maytals. He's also half of the rock/metal duo Ambiguity.

 So, how do you categorize an act like FRO, who is a little rock, a little metal, a little jazzy and a little funky? We’ll put him firmly in the column of “perfect for 80/35.”
