Vocalist Fred Ferrese, who hails from The Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland, arrived in Florida in late 1989. The “Acoustic Scene” is where his style of music lives. A 20+ show veteran at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach, Fred has covered shows in the VIP Room for bands including Dave Mathews, Journey, Creed and The Who.
Fred is known for his clear, precise and mellow voice as well as his ability to reproduce the lead vocals of the many popular hits he covers. Performing solo in local clubs remains a passion for Fred - mostly due to the intimate connection with his audience.
"CELEBRATE – a Tribute to Three Dog Night,” has opened a new “harmony vocal door” for Fred who says, “I am truly looking forward to the challenge of going from lead vocals to harmony vocalist throughout the show.”

At a very young age, “Funky Phred" started singing and playing bass guitar in shows and nightclubs in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio.

Fred is known for his versatility, singing everything from R&B and Motown to Rock 'n Roll hits. He continues to sign as the lead vocalist in Solid Brass, another popular Florida band.
"Strong vocal harmonies have always been my passion, and performing a tribute to Three Dog Night is something I have always wanted to do,” says Fred. Dreams do come true.

Since moving to Florida, he has played over 750 gigs in an array of bands and continues to play with SOLID BRASS, a popular South Florida rock band.

"Combining those with some of the fan favorite "deeper cuts" from their 12 consecutive gold albums gives CELEBRATE a choice of songs that range from pop hits to psychedelic to gospel influenced. Playing these Three Dog Night songs along with a few surprises we might throw in, is as much fun for the band as it is for the audience!"
