GRAPEFRUIT FRED originated in 2003 and there is no end to our electrical madness in sight! Originally started as solely a Grateful Dead Tribute band, over the years our library and originality has grown exponentially. Incorporating Phish and even some of our own tunes, along with many other popular artists we have branched out and traveled much further in our journey than ever expected. Our love for The Grateful Dead and our passion for recreating our favorite songs is still very much a part of what makes The Fred tick and why we do what we do--JAM!!
