An Evening With Fred Ross

This past Saturday night, while visiting the SF Bay Area, I had the opportunity to catch the one and only "Cornerstone of Soul" Mr. Fred Ross. Fred heads up "The Fred Ross Project" and is a featured artist at Harry Denton's Starlight Room at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco. The band plays a mix of Jazz, Standards, Soul, R&B, and just about every style immagined. The atmosphere at the Starlight Room is both elegant and casual. Great views of "The City" as well. The room has a large dance floor, with the band situated on the outer area, so your right there with them, as if you were in the band yourself. These guys hit it on all cylanders, from Fred's excellent vocals (Fred could sing the Phone book and nail it) to the outstanding musicianship of the rest of the cats in the band. If your in San Francisco you must check out the "Fred Ross Project". The Fred Ross Project can be found on the Internet at or Fred is also the musical director of the FamilyStoneXperience so check them out as they travel Nationally.
