Miss Freddye’s Blues Band – Friday Main Dance (and Late Night!!)
Miss Freddye’s Blues Band has that traditional Chicago style blues that gets a hold of a crowd and leaves them wanting more! Founded by their sassy and belting vocalist, Miss Freddye, the band was formed in the fall of 2002. Over the years, they have played in western and central Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and eastern Ohio. Miss Freddye’s Band has also recently won a blues competition in West Virginia, and last year, Miss Freddye and Greg “G-man” Casile won the duo blues competition for western PA. Both of these victories advanced them to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. They have opened for Kelly Richie, Eden Brent, Gina Scillia, Janiva Magness and Bettye LaVette. They perform in regional blues festivals and dances, as well as playing benefit concerts for cancer awareness and homeless veterans.
Miss Freddye will be sticking around until 2am this year!
