Chouchoubasse: Basse Guitar, Vocal
A vingt ans Fred ouvrait pour son mentor BB King avant d'accompagner dans les années 90' les étoiles du Blues: Joe "Guitar" Hughes au Texas, Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials et Maurice John Vaughn à Chicago. Ces  personnalités d'exception vont influencer directement son style riche et orginal ainsi que son  approche ludique et sensuelle de la scène. Egalement danseur de Claquettes, Slameur, plasticien, ce touche-à-tout baroudeur est avant tout complètement immergé dans le BLUES, qu'il soit du Mississippi, de Chicago, du Texas, Zydeco, du Mali, de l'île de La Réunion, des Caraïbes ou des terrils de Saint-Etienne. Il a travaillé aux côtés de Donald Ray Johnson, Zora Young, Terry Bean, Tre & the BluesKnights, Shirley Johnson, Shanna Waterstown, Corey Harris, Boney Fields, Eddie Taylor Jr, True Praise (Gospel New-Yorkais), Sylvia Howard, ainsi qu'avec le roi du Mbalax sénégalais Sallam Diallo.
                Aussi à l'aise à la guitare qu'à l'harmonica, voix de crooner, excellent showman, il communique instantanément à son public un plaisir de jouer évident et vous fait (re)découvrir la magie du "Talkin' Blues", du "Whoopin'" à la Sonny Terry  et du Scat à la Georges Benson.
