Baytown

Baytown delivered a spirited performance for their fans and our customers on Saturday, March 29th.

The boys performed virtually their entire new album “Island” (available by clicking here) in a free, all ages event in our store, much to the delight of those smiling, groovin’ folks in attendance.

Our thanks to Baytown for dropping by, presenting a great show and hanging out to sign copies of “Island” post performance. All our best to you on our east coast tour.

And as always, thank you to all the folks who came by to support the band. We are bursting with talent in our province and privileged to showcase our shared musical pride and joy.

Cheers,
Tony & The Fred’s Staff

Sherman Downey and Band Live at Fred’s

Check out the great crowd we had for Sherman’s in-store:

Sherman Downey and the Ambiguous case performed their entire new album “The Sun in your Eyes” to a packed room at Fred’s this past Saturday, November 23rd.
It was a major treat for the fans who added hand claps and sang along with their favourite numbers.
An engaging and intimate event thoroughly enjoyed by the lucky ones who ventured in. Lovely to see Andrew Dale (Once), Andrew James O’Brien, and Catherine Allan (Amelia Curran’s Band) amongst the cheerful crowd.
Fred’s would like to thank Sherman and the boys for all the kind words of support and a most fantastic and memorable performance.
And of course we thank the fans and our customers for sharing the event.
