The award winning singer/songwriter, Fremont John, is making a return to this very popular Manistee venue. He is joined by percussionist extraordinaire, Michael Carden, on congas and hand percussion. Watch for additional future dates at Fremont John usually performs solo but, his friend, Michael Carden is often and added treat. You can expect to hear from them, an unusual mix of original songs and cover tunes. The original music will come from Fremont’s 4 indie releases. The CD’s are respectively titled “Acoustic Thunder”, “Timeline”, the instrumental CD, “Guitar Songs” and the more recent “Contrarian”. Covers are likely to include Blues and Classic Rock of the 60’s, 70,s, 80’s and beyond. You may also expect an occasional venture in the F.J. “way-back machine”, into the 1920’s-30’s. And then, there are the guitar instrumentals mostly from previously mentioned instrumental CD, “Guitar Songs”. Fremont John is a guitarist with a very melodic and readily identifiable guitar sound. Think of the sounds and styles of Craig Chaquico or an acoustic Carlos Santana. As a singer, Fremont John is often compared, in style and vocal quality, to John Fogerty, Rob Thomas and Roy Orbison. This duo act often sounds like a trio or even a 4-piece, as he loops multiple guitar tracks. He utilizes a vocal harmonizer to fill out the sound with 3-part vocal harmony with arrangements that are all is own even if the song is not. Carden is a well-schooled and disciplined drummer and percussionist bringing the sound of congas and other small percussion to the mix. He plays with the confidence and assurance of a life of experience. Fremont John and Michael Carden present a very polished and poised act. It’s an act that evolved over years of playing a very heavy schedule of live gigs in Key West, FL and in the gulf coast towns of Florida and along the western shoreline of Michigan and many points in between.
