Frog Squad is an outlet for creative expression and sound exploration based in Memphis, TN. Their songs pull heavily on improvisation within loose structures, creating a psychedelic, avant-garde, jazz sound.
The group curates and arranges songs from artists such as Theloious Monk, Erik Satie, and Horace Silver, and bandleader David Collins composes eclectic, orginial music. Overall, Frog Squad gently defies the standards of what defines “good music” by composing song templates with experimental elements. In Fall of 2019, Frog Squad released “Solar System in Peabody,” a full length work funded by the Urban Arts Commission. The Memphis Flyer called it “one of the most incredible pieces of music that came across our threshold this year.”
