This week I found a really interesting percussionist for you! Fred Stites has played multi-percussion with Doc Severinsen’s Touring Band: “Today’s Children & the Now Generation Brass” w/ Ed Shaughnessy, has drummed for Henry Mancini, Johnny Mathis & Shirley Bassey. Has taught percussion at, recorded with & attended North Texas State (1’o clock Lab 67 & 68 Bands), got his Masters from Manhattan School of Music, and has played with the Dallas, Fort Worth, Kalamazoo & American Symphony Orchestras!
Fred got into the production side of the music business too, working sound & lights for 70’s funk giants The Ohio Players. He now heads the production for Grand Performances, a beautiful state of the art out door theater in California Plaza, downtown L.A.
