 Did you know Avril Lavigne was releasing a new album in 2017? Probably not, but Fred did. Andrew Fredrick, is a true ray of sunshine.  Somehow, in between being a Chemical Engineer and Co-President of OTB, Fred finds the time to brighten everyone’s day with his unique blend of genuine kindness and unconventional humor.  But don’t let this sunshine fool you, beneath the occasional Nantucket apparel and the frequent Jimmy Johns orders is a true angel of rock waiting to flap its fiery wings and take off into the darkness.  As a killer soloist, our beatboxer extraordinaire and the flesh vessel for Nigel Thornberry, Fred’s vocal range will make you go “OOOooooOOoOoOOO” and “BLAAARGH.” If after the show you just haven't seen enough of his unique talents, find Fred and ask him to do a “pig call” worthy of the Illinois 2010 State Fair… you won’t be disappointed. 


Fun Fact: I am currently watching poker highlights on a Tuesday night so there’s that.
My favorite artists are Jon Bellion, Avril Lavigne, and Ripe.
When I’m not singing I like playing backyard sports.
