“Fred Green is the next musical step in party monster rock. Music biz folks, I hereby endorse Fred Green and predict a great musical future for them.” — Kim Fowley

“Their music is a mix between the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Primus with the vocals suggestive of Alice in Chains.” — Link Music

“…funk that leaps and drifts from deep, blessed-out grooves to incendiary instrumental breaks.” — Phoenix New Times

“Valley trio Fred Green loves to get you grooving to good-time vibes and bouncing to reggae beats. The band’s fusion of ska, rock, and funk is a glorious mix, particularly on their latest album, Still Burnin’, which features some guest percussion by Primus drummer Tim Alexander.” — Niki D’Andrea–Phoenix New Times

FRED GREEN – Still Burnin’
(Self released)

Fred Green is not one man but rather a well-seasoned power-trio consisting of guitarist and singer Todd Minnix, bassist Sam Lersch and drummer and singer Chris Peeler. The band plays a heavy version of stoner rock but they can take it in any number of directions and sound good. “Brand New Shoe” taps into a funky rock sound virtually trademarked these days by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Every Little Thing” and “Habit” both recall Sublime but “In a Minute” finds Fred Green rocking like Primus-meets-King Crimson as Minnix heads for the stratosphere with Zappa-esque licks. “Lose the Attitude” backs down a little with its bouncy and beachy melody; kind of like Jack Johnson with bigger cojones. These guys are a little bit grunge and a little bit Hendrix but they’re also fans of reggae and Steve Miller, a fact that they flawlessly demonstrate with “Today.”…antimusic.com
