With roots in classical, contemporary, and alternative rock music, Frank Muffin and their versatile alt‑rock sound has been building a buzz in Lafayette since they formed in 2011.

Though initially intended as a onetime acoustic trio, their harmonies stirred up fans who requested more and the Muffins obliged. A few performances later, Frank Muffin introduced a drummer into their batch to expand to outdoor venues and larger events.

Often praised for their diverse catalog, Frank Muffin considers themselves the “we’ll try anything” band of Lafayette.  The fusion of musical interests among the members creates a unique collection of songs and styles for all to enjoy.

Frank Muffin takes every opportunity to freshen their set and add new sounds to the mix.  The talents of the vocalists and their instrumental flexibility enables Frank Muffin to continuously expand their resonance and performance.

​In Ricker Rocker’s music review of Frank Muffin, he states, “With nine different instruments played amongst the four members… they impressed me immediately with technical prowess and exceptional harmony, as well as stage presence… They cover so vast a range in genre that I was like a kid in a record store.  They had a pleasing little something for everyone.  Their repertoire landed somewhere among punk, alt‑rock, new wave, and of course classic covers.  And I loved every minute of it.”

Hans Rees, the mastermind behind the Muffin originals, has been writing and recording music as a solo artist and in multiple bands for more than thirty years.  With the upcoming release of the first Frank Muffin album, Hans is able to realize and reimagine his work in the age of streaming and digital distribution.

Although they love being a staple in the Lafayette music scene, Frank Muffin has their sights set on sharing their music with surrounding communities in Indiana and neighboring states.
