Who

Frim Fram Four

The Frim Fram 4, based in Boise, Idaho, specializes in the classic tunes of the 30’s through the early 60’s. Their original instrumentation reflected that of the Nat King Cole trio, relying on vocals, piano, stand up bass, and the exciting new sound of the electric guitar.  Dr. Andrew Cortens on piano, Jonah Shue on electric guitar and violin, Greg Belzeski on drums and congas, Cody Ramey on standup bass, and everyone joining in on vocals. (Old-school Gang Singing lives!) Their dedication to the musical style of the period has made them the most universally beloved musical group in Boise. 

While the band’s first motivation was to rejuvenate the hit records from the Nat King Cole trio, other icons of jazz have influenced their direction and repertoire. 

 Over the years the fabled and super-secret Frim Fram Book of Swing has grown to include arrangements from Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Hot Club de France, Sinatra, Louis (Armstrong, Jordan, Prima… pick a Louis – the era was full of greats), Bobby Darrin, Tony Bennett, and many others.  The Frim Fram 4’s unflagging devotion to the initial conditions of the music they play has made them Champions of Swing in the eyes, and ears, of many of the region’s people.
