One of the country's best boogie-woogie bar bands in their heyday in the early to mid '70s, Commander Cody specializes in a revved-up, full tilt assortment of Western swing, country and rockabilly music. The Commander (a.k.a. George Frayne) formed the first incarnation in the Midwest (while teaching art at Wisconsin's State University). Late '60s success in the San Francisco Bay area saw the band recording, touring and producing hits like "Hot Rod Lincoln," "Smoke, Smoke Smoke," and "Beat Me Daddy Eight to The Bar," through "Don't Let Go" in 1975. After a 1976 European tour, the band split up, though the Commander re-formed several other line-ups through the early '80s. The Commander today continues to balance his arts among painting, music and mastery of the good-time, get-down-and-boogy school of live performance. Come on in and watch our roof get raised, as Commander Cody lands here once again!
