about

The Fred Roth Revue is here to save you from the musical blahs. The band is known for shooting off skittering, erratic sparks that jolt the music into unexpected directions without forsaking their cheerful dedication to uplifting melodies and playful lyrics that reveal deep insight with repeated listening. Jim Knodle's trumpet, the outside guitar excursions of Merch DeGrasse and the elaborate rhythmic exchanges between drummer Scott Griggs and the band's singer, songwriter, bass player and namesake Fred Roth, have been keeping Seattle audiences on their toes since the band's debut ten years ago. Fred Not Amused preserves the band's propulsive on-stage sound, a blend of lively garage band soul, sharp pop melodies and engaging, nursery rhyme-like lyrics.
