This year’s performers
Led by Carlos Ocasio, the Frydaddy band has been serving up a spicy gumbo of rockin’ soul in the Upper Valley for close to 30 years. A few members have changed throughout the years, but the attention to musical styles has not. With influences and covers ranging from James Brown to Carlos Santana, in addition to soulful originals, Ocasio and the band have enjoyed opening for national acts as well as playing for private venues across New England. Pegged sometimes as a crooner, Ocasio and the Frydaddy band can set the tone for romance as well as turn it up with a foot stompin’ good time!
Current members of the band have been performing music together for over 5 years.
Pete Henault- Lead Guitar
Bobby Sparadeo- Drums
Seth Barbiero- Bass
