Freddy, originally from New York City is a musician, artist, producer, writer and all around creative.
He does chalk art at the Volume One sponsored Chalk Fest in Eau Claire gaining recognition as Volume One's staff favorite in 2010 and the judges honorable mention in 2011 and again in 2012.
He has played jazz for many years in small venues around New York City, New Jersey, Long Island and Connecticut, carried the Clarence "Big Man" Clemons parts for a Springsteen cover band in the late 1990's and is playing Tenor & Soprano saxophones as well as piano since he moved to the MidWest from New York City in 2007.
Seeking to get back out to play music after a 5-year hiatus, he gathered his group with a passion for straight ahead jazz and a desire to play similar gigs like he did back in New York. Now with residence in St. Paul MN, Freddy and his group are playing gigs in the Twin Cities and throughout the MidWest.
Freddy's group enjoys a lot of the post bebop to cool jazz influences as well as the jazz scene from the 1970’s. Add in Blues and the vocal stylings of Lindsay Herda, Freddy's music and groups are sure to entertain!
In the summer of 2015 Equinox Jazz Group released their first CD with many original tunes as well as some great standards.
Freddy is arranging for a new jazz project including string quartet as well as working on developing his new blues band in St. Paul.
