Formed in 1996 as a bluegrass trio, Frog Holler has since evolved into its current six piece line-up. Led by left-handed acoustic guitar playing Darren Schlappich, the band also features electric guitar, bass, drums, fiddle and banjo. Home base is Shoemakersville, PA where 'the song is king' and four hour live shows are commonplace. Their influences are many and without getting past the B's they claim to like Bill Monroe, Brian Wilson, Norman Blake, and the Beatles. Here with fourteen originals, "Adams Hotel Road" is the band's second full length release. Whether they're launching big pop missiles or sneaking out spare subtle gems, their lyrical songs reveal images and scenes that tell stories, expose feelings, and make connections.

Priority tracks are #1 'Least Most Wanted', #3 'Couldn't Get Along' ,and #5 'Two Things'.
