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.
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!
Official Breakdown played the Rockstock 2013 benefit concert on Saturday, Oct 19. The band shared the stage with local youth band favorites: Stolen Thunder, Technical Difficulties, 50 Below, False Puppet, The Caverns and more – plus, the highly anticipated reggae bands Iration and Rebelution. It was an amazing day of music to benefit the Rockshop Academy, and the band was thrilled to be apart of it.
Join us for our second performance this summer at Skater’s Point on Saturday, July 20 at 2pm. Our friend Ben Congdon will be filling in as guitarist for this show. Bring your friends and come support youth music, enjoy the view and delicious food!
Please join us as Official Breakdown plays our third year at Mercado del Norte. We play the first night of Fiesta on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 6:00pm. This year our band ‘graduates’ and plays the main stage!
Also, we are excited to have our friend Jason Mally join us onstage and play with us again. We are rehearsing new music and looking forward to seeing family and friends. Please bring your friends and enjoy rides, churros and support youth music…Viva la Fiesta!
