Hendersonville Theatre presents soul-driven psychedelic funk band The Fritz as April’s intimate Hometown Sound Music Series concert. Hailing from Asheville, the group’s aggressive approach to funk, soul, and rock creates a sound that is uniquely their own. Their high-energy, danceable songs provide a platform for each member to shine. With powerful vocals, climactic solos, and tight grooves, The Fritz has built a devoted following and is captivating audiences everywhere.
The Fritz loves to get funky, and they take their funk seriously. The band also takes its rock-honed songwriting just as seriously. Individually, the members of The Fritz are masters of improvisation, carefully weaving their personalities into each performance. While the music may range from hard-driving soul to progressive rock, a common thread of The Fritz’s passionate energy reigns true in each show. This show is sure to leave you dancing in your aisles, the seats, and the hallway!
The newest lineup features Datrian Johnson on lead vocals, who has propelled the group to new heights. Many may know Datrian from his work with legendary organist John Medeski’s Saint Disruption. Datrian is a force, and the immediate chemistry with songwriter/music director/guitarist Jamie Hendrickson and drummer Michael Tillis is clear. The group also welcomes funk machine Thomson Knowles, as well as long-time Fritz collaborator, Matt Schueler.
The band just released their 3rd full-length album entitled Take Your Time, out now on all streaming platforms.
