Freddy Trujillo is a singer/songwriter/bassist who hails from Simi Valley, CA. He grew up in a highly musical family. His father, Fred Sr., sang and played guitar in various groups, including The Beethovens, an all-chicano beat combo who gigged all over the southland during the great garage-rock boom of the mid-1960′s.
His sister A’me Loraine scored two top-ten dance hits in the early ‘90s. Freddy himself played with Pat Smear (Nirvana, Germs) and many other local L.A. acts during the explosion of punk/alternative music that hit L.A. in the ’80s and ’90s. Freddy soon re-located to Portland, Oregon and released his acclaimed debut solo record Hawks & Highways, which dealt with the intertwining of Native American and Chicano experiences in rock & roll form. He has since been a sought-after player in the ever-burgeoning Portland scene, having formed the well-respected (yet short-lived) Chicano-rock ensemble Caguama, and, most recently, joined established and internationally touring Portland acts Richmond Fontaine and Fernando.
As a special tribute to the great George Clinton, the band will play a second set that consists of Funkadelic’s “Maggot Brain” in its entirety!
