Fred Bredfry spent the better part of the 1990’s performing with the original acoustic duo “Damaged Goods.” Together with singer guitarist Tom Darkside he recorded two albums, “Beyond Repair” and “Roads.” Damaged Goods performed over 500 gigs through out the New York area and played colleges, coffee houses and bars. .It was during this time that Fred developed his unique guitar style and began writing many of the songs that he currently records and performs.

Fred’s songs are strongly lyrical with styles and melodies that draw from many aspects of American music. Sometimes folky, sometimes country, and some times blues and rock and roll, they create musical snapshots of life in 21st century America. Often using a third person voice and strong visual images his songs tell the stories of men and women wrestling with relationships, children trying to understand their place in the world, and people just trying to get by.

The Circuit Breakers

The Circuit Breakers share a common vision, working together to create music that is at once familiar and original. We don't view our repetoire as "cover songs" or original songs, we choose material because we have a passion for the songs. Tom' Linden's covers of Jimi Hendrix's Red House, the classic House of the Rsing Son or Summetime are both emotional and unique. Fred Bredfry provides guitar backing, while adding the orginal songs Mona, Loving Tree and Gypsy Queen. George Bechtus anchors the band with his thumping base lines, while Hondo brings his cosmic zen drumming that allows the band to move in directions that help us define our original sound.

The Circuit Breakers are:
"Too Calm " Tom Linden-Guitars and Vocals
George Bechtus-Bass
Fred Bredfry- Guitar and Vocals
John "Hondo" Weisbrod
John Risotto-Guitars, Vocals, Harmonica, Mandolin
