Bio

Aiken, South Carolina's Mike Frost Band - featuring the superb vocals and saxophone of Lauren Meccia – is energizing the local music scene by blending together all types of musical styles to create a sound that’s all their own. Anchored by the dynamic bass playing of Mike Frost - an artist with decades of worldwide touring and performing experience - they combine a crowd pleasing sense of fun with adventurous, turn-on-a- dime musicianship. As evidenced by three stellar CD releases, Riddle Me This? (2011), Get Frosted! Live at the Blue Horse (2012), and Frosty Christmas (2012), and their newest single Rapture (2013), their sound contains elements of danceable funk, classic rock, and R&B, while their approach to jazz standards and modern ballads is laced with undeniable verve, and performed with a soulful spirit.
