A fixture on the Baltimore and Washington music scenes for almost thirty years Freddie has constantly and consistently been recruited by bands and artists of note to grace live and studio projects in a wide variety of styles. Some of these include alternative band The Loft/Plugged; nationally charting new age artist, Jeff Order; internationally acclaimed women�s Jewish ensemble, Ayelet HaShachar; Naked Blue; Kim Hall/Kimberly Praay; EMI composer/singer Shaunna Bolton; Warner-published AA artists Cubic Feet; One by One (feat. Stanley Whitaker and David Bach of Happy the Man) and his current ensemble, the critically acclaimed purveyors of �Phat Blues�, the Kelly Bell Band.
Freddie has also shared the stage with such well known Baltimore based legends as Dennis Chambers and jazz fusion innovator Carl Filipiak. His stock has risen steadily in the region and after winning honorable mention and placing near the top of its reader�s poll several times, the Baltimore-based Music Monthly, covering the Mid-Atlantic, finally certified him as the area�s favorite bassist. Freddie currently uses Groove Tools GTBD-7 and GT-7 basses during his high energy performances with the Kelly Bell Band on some two hundred shows annually from coast to coast.
