Lead: Rick LaRosa. Tenor: Jared Carlson. Baritone: Clay Hine. Bass: Joe Clay.

Born in 1908 in Kankakee, Illinois, Fred was named after his father, Fred. Despite his early love of music, he would soon become internationally adored as a star of both the small and silver screens as well as the visual inspiration for one of America's most cherished comic book icons. In fact... oops. Wrong Fred. Sorry.

Fred (the barbershop quartet, not that other guy) was formed in 1991 when four members of Marietta, Georgia's Big Chicken Chorus decided that they were better without all the extra dead weight. Many audiences and professional coaches would argue that were probably wrong.

Fred : FreDinci Code : 1 CD

Fred : FreDinci Code    Out of Print

Barbershop Comedy specialists and 1999 SPEBSQSA International Quartet champs Fred have 3 excellent CDs and one DVD under their belts, and "The FreDinci Code" is another winner! Cool graphics on the liner notes include the boys as "Claytino," "Joseppi," "Regetonni" and "Stupido" Fredinci, and have them performing in togas before an amazed, heavily Photoshopped version of DaVinci's "Last Supper." The "FreDinci Code," or songlist, includes 11 straight, or altered, tunes, "Zippitty DooDah," "Me and My Shadow," "What a Wonderful World," "Little Brown Jug," the totally silly Italian lesson "Amore," and "I Gotta Be E," the manic "Can Can," "Sweet Embraceable You," the crazed impersonations of "Fred Vegas Medley" and "Where Did the Time Go." Where indeed? The FreDinci Code needs to be listened to carefully again and again to pick up the jokes, or clues as the case may be. Good, funny stuff.

Songlist: Zippitty DooDah, Me And My Shadow, What A Wonderful World, Little Brown Jug, Amazing Grace, Amore, I Gotta Be E, Can Can, Sweet Embraceable You, Fred Vegas Medley, Where Did The Time Go

Fred : Get Happy : 1 CD

Fred : Get Happy

They're Back! Get the wimmin and chillun off the streets. Gather them by the old CD player and enjoy! They alternate between simply beautiful songs and humor which frequently takes one by surprise because the singing is so good just before they go off the deep end. There are a couple of updated old Smothers Brothers gags, "Streets of Laredo" and "I Never Will Marry." There are a couple of wacky intros to otherwise wonderful songs. They spooflicate Steven Foster unmercifully in an verbal introduction and then sing a beautiful "Old Folks At Home." A melodic "I Don't Know Why" starts so beautifully and then...the vocal horns...

Songlist: I've Got Rhythm, Just the Way YouLook Tonight, The Streets of Laredo, Muskrat Ramble, Ya Gotta Know How to Dance Medley, Love's Old Sweet Song, I Never Will Marry, I Can't GiveYou Anything But Love/ LOVE Medley, I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm, Old Folks at Home, Please Kind Sir, I Don't Know Why, Jungle Book Medley, Get Happy

Fred : Simply Fred : 1 CD

Fred : Simply Fred    Out of Print

Just how good do you have to be before you can be a barbershop comedy group? Really, really, good! Winning medalists at the International Finals in 1996 (fourth place), 1997 (second place) and 1998 (fourth place again) are some of their triumphs but their greatest triumph will be the pure enjoyment you will have each time you hear this cross between wonderful singers and class clowns! For pure goofiness try "Herman and Sally," Harmony Lanes/Bowling Shoes," "Big Time Gutter Ball" or the atrocious "Hindustan," a live recording. Then there is "This Little Light of Mine" with its ballistic ending or the beautiful "Someone's Rockin' My Dreamboat." Where does it all end? the last song, of course!

Songlist: Hello, Hello, Hello, Church Bells, Fit As A Fiddle, When I Fall In Love, Let's Get Away From It All, Herman And Sally, This Little Light Of Mine, The Song Has Ended, Blue Skies, Write Myself A Letter, Ballin' The Jack, Harmony Lanes/ Bowling Shoes, Big Time Gutter Ball, Hindustan, Someone's Rockin' My Dreamboat, Tiger Rag
