Frog Squad is an outlet for creative expression and sound exploration based in Memphis, Tennessee. 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 Thelonious Monk, Erik Satie, and Horace Silver, and bandleader David Collins composes eclectic, original music. Overall, Frog Squad gently defies the standards of what defines “good music” by composing song templates with experimental elements. In autumn of 2019, Frog Squad released Solar System in Peabody, a full-length work funded by the UrbanArts Commission. The Memphis Flyer called it “one of the most incredible pieces of music that came across our threshold this year.”
