Adam Frishman began playing guitar and bass guitar in his home town of Jericho, Long Island. While still in high school he played in a series of bands, culminating in the group Bandfolk, cutting his teeth at iconic Long Island and New York City bars and rock clubs, including The Village Pub, Fadeley’s Deli Pub, and Chicago B.L.U.E.S. Adam’s band throughout college, Slow Children, developed a following in the Oswego/Syracuse, NY area, filling bars and parties, and opening for jamband favorite “The Breakfast” (formerly “Psychedelic Breakfast”). Adam has since played in a number of bands throughout Colorado, New York, and Florida. He was the lead guitarist in Omar and Universal Love, a reggae/afrobeat band out of Boulder, in which he had the pleasure of opening up for reggae legends “The Melodians.” This was followed by a stint taking care of lead guitar duties in Lord Byron, a rock band based in Brooklyn with a penchant for playing rooftop parties in Bushwick.
In 2011, Adam recorded his first solo album, the self-released “Uncle Frish’s Whiskey” . The short-lived group Uncle Frish’s Whiskey, taking its name from the record, was an outlaw country/Americana band, which saw Adam taking over all songwriting and lead guitar duties as well as fronting the group. Adam has since played guitar in several Denver based Grateful Dead cover bands including Mindbender, Dick’s Picks, and Uncle John’s Band. While in Denver, Adam had the opportunity to share the stage with musicians like Dave Hebert, and Paul Murin, as well as opening for the likes of Stephen Perkins, Willie Waldman, Rob Barraco, Robin Sylvester, and Rob Eaton. Adam has also played bass guitar throughout Colorado and Arizona in groups including Nolan McCinnis Band and Juke Joint Jubilee.
In 2013 Adam founded country/folk/rock band Them Raggedy Bones. The band released one album, 2015’s “Redheads and Indians” which featured all original songs. Them Raggedy Bones played original music and cover tunes at bars, rock clubs, and ballrooms throughout Colorado for three years, finally calling it quits in the summer of 2016.
Currently Adam is the bass guitar player for the Micah Scott Project. Playing original music and covers throughout South Florida and the Treasure Coast, The Micah Scott Project plays down home Americana music with some rock and roll thrown in for good measure.
Adam also performs solo acoustic shows featuring his original songs along with some choice country, folk, blues, and rock covers, so check your local listings!
