Review for FrazierBand: 
John Frazier has been steaming up country/rock venues throughout the south and now heading back home to Tennessee.  He was recently awarded one of the "Best Instrumentalist” by the "Nashville Scene”.

He’s no stranger to stardom as he was Steve Martin’s protégé, and well-recognized as an A-Session musician’s musician, known for his brilliant mastery of the mandolin, guitar and the fiddle, and his Frazier Band, has audiences screaming for more during his 2017 tour for their CD Some People Change.  

The CD was produced at the famous Destiny Studios in East Nashville with some VIP performers making appearances on it; Frazier also features five of his original songs; The Rod & The Cane, Tell Me (Moving Along On The Water), Pie In The Sky, Flesh & Bone and Fall Down/Rise Up.  

John Frazier is by no means a “newbie” to the music scene.  He has toured and played with film and comedy legend Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. During the tour, Frazier, Martin, and the Rangers co-wrote the song “Go Away, Stop, Turn Around, Come Back,” that Martin recorded on Rare Bird Alert; and also with John Cowan, Jim Lauderdale and bands, such as, Yonder Mountain String Band and Hit & Run. He brings a powerful, eclectic history as an acoustic and bluegrass performer into his leadership of Frazier Band.  Forever on the move to share his passion for music, John has performed at venues all across the U.S. and overseas from the Grande Ole Opry to The Kennedy Center, and at the Royal Festival Hall in London. He has also appeared on countless TV shows.

In an opinion piece, 5/18/18, Rev. Josh Woodrow referred to me and my fellow School Board member, Joe Smith, as racists and white supremacists because we spoke out against busing. I have never met or spoken with Rev. Woodrow so he knows nothing about me. The reverend obviously knows nothing about Joe Smith either. Seems one of the reverend’s hobbies is “brewing beer”. Maybe, ... (click for more)
