In a typical show he will use up to 6 different guitars and weave a dazzling web of ambiance, using a variety of effects and loopers. Within the same hour Freddy can go from acoustic soft folk ballads to heavy rock psychedelia. He also plays new age, blues, funk, country, Americana and nearly everything in between. He does this all with a sense of humor and wants his audiences to have as much fun as he does!

In 2012, she was rushed to the hospital for emergency brain surgery! She was told she might never see or talk again, or worse, lose all memories.  It was during her recovery that she found a new lease on life and began to sing again.  She throws passion and soul into all her performances.  Her main goal is to touch people’s emotions through singing and to have a positive impact on those around her.

Bella
Bella has the voice of an angel! She is truly an amazing musician who will blow you away with her angelic voice and harmonic guitar playing! She plays a variety of tunes and hits which some may surprise you!  Many of her influences range from Classical to Heavy Metal and especially from the late 70’s to 90’s

About Breast Cancer:
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.
The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is about 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36. Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
The American Cancer Society estimates for breast cancer in men in the United States for 2016 are:

About 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed
About 440 men will die from breast cancer

Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. The number of breast cancer cases in men relative to the population has been fairly stable over the last 30 years.
