The Fritz winds down its MoDaddy’s residency

Although the band’s show last week was cancelled abruptly, this Wednesday’s show will go on, says the band’s management.

Here are details on the band, which has been building a local buzz of late:

“Infectious grooves, intoxicating guitar lines and a relentless drive of soul and passion describes one of the Southeast’s newest sensations, The Fritz.

Fueled by a variety of musical traditions and techniques, The Fritz embodies a collection of influences based in progressive funk, while using elements of rock, jazz and electronic to take their sound to the next level.


In their young career, the band has performed at popular music festivals (Bear Creek, Blackwater, Swamptown), been featured in RELIX magazine and has received accolades from a multitude of media outlets.

This eccentric 5-piece features a versatile guitar sound by Jamie Hendrickson. His innate sense of melody creates a canvas that blends perfectly with Jake O’Connor’s funk-laden bass lines. Percussionist Mike Evans and drummer Michael Tillis bring a strong, driven energy to the group, deepening the pocket for Hendrickson and O’Connor. Leading the way with his progressive funk-filled solos is Jamar Woods. His powerful vocals are dripping with soul and excitement, which propels the band into thick grooves and electrifying improvisational journeys.”

The show starts at 10 p.m. and it’s free. For more on the band, check out the web site.
