Fredfest originated in the mid-90’s as housewarming party. It turned into an annual event, still going strong 18 years later. The emcee announced at the beginning of the party, ‘If you can hear my voice, then you’re invited over! Bring a dish to share and come join us!’
Gwennie was taking her ACT the day of the event…so the OBD boys played the set as ‘East Valley Road’ and performed covers of Led Zepplin, Hendrix and The Who.
In addition to East Valley Road, the other Fredfest bands were The David Loeppke Band, Sonic Chaos, Nicole Ferrel, Pacific Coast Blues, Lucky Ducks, Undercover, and the Alastair Greene Band.
The boys play Voodoo Chile by Jimi Hendrix, and then Gwennie joins them back onstage for their final song of the set, Real Me by The Who. April 26, 2014
We were thrilled to be invited back to the fair for our second year! 2014 was even better than our first time two years earlier with a better time slot and better set. We want to thank our family for coming out and supporting us and for all the great feedback and positive response from the audience!
We are excited to play the fair for our second time this Saturday, April 26 at 2:45pm. Join us at the Abracadabra stage…See you there!
Recently, the band played a private birthday party at Rancho Dos Pueblos with three other acts: Jesse Rhoads, Floodwood and Alastair Greene. It was an incredible night of music.
Two highlights during the band’s set: Vinnie Amico (drummer for moe. and Floodwood) joined the band as a second drummer for their cover of Velvet Revolver’s Slither, and the finale was George Pendergast (drummer for Dishwalla) came onstage and joined our drummer for the Dishwalla cover, Counting Blue Cars.
We are thrilled to announce that Cameron Nichoson has joined the band. The chemistry at Rockstock was evident, and Cameron brings big talent on guitar as well as strong vocals. This opens up so many possibilities for the band. We are stoked to play together!
