Club Phred is a group of musicians who on average have over thirty years of professional experience.

We all share a love of classic 60’s and 70’s music and have deep roots in the Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey tri-state area. Club Phred formed in 2002 and has performed with the likes of Mark Farner Formerly of Grand Funk Railroad and opened up for Pete Best the original drummer of “The Beatles” and The Marshall Tucker Band. Club Phred has won numerous awards from the Delaware media.

Member Fred Dawson says “The members of Club Phred think that there is an audience out there for classic rock ‘n’ roll. Club Phred wants to play a regular venue, as our followers want to see repeat performances of that genre of music. CP also wants to do fund raisers for worthy causes. This is a simple way for many folks to support their favorite charity, have a great time, and an easy way for the charity to make money.”

“Jamming with Club Phred is really fun. They play all of my favorite tunes. They are all really nice people that collectively have a “vibe.” All great players on their instruments. Playing with Club Phred is like having dinner at someone’s house.” ~ Late Show with David Letterman Musician Tom “Bones” Malone

“Playin w/Club Phred was a gas – certainly not some amateur band… all you guys (& gal) sounded really great.”    ~ Bruce Kapler, Saxophonist/Late Show with David Letterman Musician

“Just watched Club Phred’s video! You guy’s rock! Can’t wait to sit in!”   ~ Micky Dolenz

“Bravo! Bravo!! Bravo!!! What a FABULOUS EVENING!!! Everyone who attended your performance at the conclusion of our dance-a-thon has been raving and already asking for an encore. Old, middleaged, and young couldn’t help but dance to your music. You have enchanted us and we are adoring fans! Thank you so very much for helping our young people to organize a fund raiser and to rally the older members of our congregation to join them in an evening of fun. It was a great blending of ages and it was inspiring to see how they supported each other and shared the common love of music and Club Phred. I think that our young people saw that older folk are really just older kids. Thank you very, very much!!”  ~ Annette Mehan/The young and old people of First Presbyterian Church

“Just returned from our class reunion where your band was a real hit! We enjoyed your Motown Medley, Lady Marmalade and the saxophone is the best. Thank you all for providing so many memories through your music.”    ~ Linda L. Gerace

“WOW – what a way to ring in the new year! Thanks so much for another great New Year’s Eve! Last year we attended your party and had a rockin good time! We were invited back for year #2 and we are hooked! Club Phred – you rock!”  ~ Pam Chambers

“I recently had Club Phred play at my graduation party. With over 80 people at the party, not one person had a complaint. The band sounded great and they were a delight to be around. I am just trying to come up with another excuse for a party so I can have them play again. I could not have asked for a better graduation party and Club Phred was one of the main reasons it was so great. Thank again guys!”   ~ Nick DeCaire

“You guys made the Boeing V-22 Office Party simply the Event of the Year around here! Spectacular music, great time, but most important – wonderful people who know how to have fun the old fashioned way…!! Keep it up and we want you back..!!”    ~ Chuck Yerspo
