Ardvark Felon is the anagram-derived alter ego of Frank Velardo, composer, lead singer, guitar-slinger, and man in front of the band.  The band is  spontaneous but polished, serious yet absurd.  They’re funky in all the right ways, love playing for dancers, and know just when to turn things up with explosions of group improvisation and jamming.
