Based in Cincinnati, Frickin’ A was formed by lead singer Jason Phelps (Frickin' A) and guitarist Dave Harris (Frickin' B). The two had played together in other bands but were never quite satisfied with the energy and direction. A and B began experimenting as they played acoustic shows around the Midwest before adding the rhythm section anchored by bassist Jason Short and drummer Scott McCann. "We just want to do something fun," says J. "This isn't rocket science."
The band got their name while getting a feel for the new members during the recording process of their first demo. While struggling to come up with a sound and a name, Harris blurted out "FRICKIN' A man – do these songs suck". Well the name stuck and so did the new members.
Frickin' A released their first record in 2004 and it featured a rockin' cover of "Jessie's Girl." The song was featured on one of the Now! music mix CDs.
