Formed in the Spring of 2010 “John Fries & The Heat” has quickly become one of New London’s most popular acts.
The trio has been hard at work over the past year playing throughout New England from NYC to Boston.
Fronting the band is John Fries, who seamlessly blends a combination of singer-songwriter compositions & deeply rooted Blues guitar. His voice is rich and deep, with a bluesy rasp and a true rock & roll tone.
“The Heat” featuring Ron Lewis on drums and Pat Perry on bass make up one of the strongest rhythm sections in the area, laying down grooves reminiscent of the Motown era.
Don’t let the size of this band fool you. Despite being a trio, “John Fries & The Heat” has been known to light up the stage night after night!
**Also on stage for this Theodores’ show will be special guest Matt Zeiner on the B3; ex keys player for Dickey Betts and Great Southern, toured with Matt “Guitar” Murphy of Blues Brothers fame and has collaborated with other veteran artists such as Melvin Sparks, Jeff Pevar (CS&N) and Greg Vasso (Max Creek)**
