Jeff Bates Coming to FrogFest – Tad Pole’s Preview [VIDEOS]

Jeff Bates has been described as a cross between “Conway Twitty and Trace Adkins,” by some Big Frog 104 staffers, and he’s been added to the line-up at this weekend’s Frogfest!  Maybe it’s the growl in his voice, or his ability to sing many styles of music including; gospel, cajun, country and even Elvis. Polly Wogg and I saw Jeff perform on a side stage at one of those 4 day outdoor camping and concert events. We both left show thinking, “How could this guy not be headlining a night.” And while lots of writers claim to write from life experiences, you can follow Jeff’s life through every song. From his first album, “Rainbow Man,” you hear his story of being adopted at three months old and trying to find out who he was.

Jeff’s debut “Love Song” was a top ten hit, that describes finding the meaning of love, first as a child then that first special girl in a man’s life.

Jeff’s career continued with some minor hits featuring that low gravely voice developing a near cult following, “as the best kept secret. ”

I always thought his song, “Good People” was one of the most misunderstood songs of all time. If you have ever knew someone who, perhaps ran a little on the “wrong side of the law” this song makes perfect sense.

I can assure you of one thing if you see Jeff Bates live at Wild West Frogfest and Rodeo, he’ll sing “the he**” out of every song he sings and you’ll feel it too.

Frog Fest and Rodeo:  Saturday June 18, 12pm at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds, 135 Cemetery Road, Frankfort.  Tickets $18, purchase at the gate, any area Price Chopper, at the Townsquare Media studios at 9418 River Road in Marcy and online here.
