Frank Frost & Sam Carr • The Last of the Jell Roll King

Frank Frost was born in 1936 in the heart of the Mississippi Delta near Helena,
 AR. He picked up guitar and harmonica as a boy around that rough and tumble port town.
Helena was considered ground zero by the Delta Blues community thanks to KFFA radio’s “King Biscuit Time”
program that aired daily and was hosted by “Sunshine” Sonny Payne. In the early 1950s
 Frank hooked up with drummer Sam Carr, who also happened to be the son of legendary guitarist Robert Nighthawk (AKA Robert Lee McCoy).
In 1962 they expanded to three pieces and added guitarist/bassist Jack Johnson.
 The three began performing as “Frank Frost & The Nighthawks”, and later as “The Jelly Roll Kings”.
They quickly became one of the most popular juke joint bands in the delta.
