Camp Freddy Returns

Friday, December 3, 2010
By: Brent X Mendoza

“It’s so much f*cking fun to play here at The Roxy!”, exclaimed lead vocalist Donovan Leitch Jr. as he hit the stage for opening night of Camp Freddy’s yearly residency. The all-star super cover group whose other core members consist of Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction, RHCP), Matt Sorum (GNR, Velvet Revolver), Billy Morrison (The Cult), and Chris Chaney, exploded right out of the gate with a nonstop barrage of anthemic covers that whipped the sold out house into a frenzy.

Mixing their set with the greatest hits from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, the rock n’ roll vets performed many of the songs even better than the original players, i.e., open a show with “We Will Rock You” and you better have the chops to back it up. CF set the bar high and delivered a 90 minute set worthy of an arena performance.

Known for their on stage celebrity pop-ins and surprise special guests, the show had no shortage of star power. With legends like Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Angelo Moore (Fishbone) and his saxophone, Nikka Costa, Richard Patrick (Filter), and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) accompanying the band, few in the “at capacity” crowd even left the room for a bathroom break, for fear of who/what they might miss.

The bad boys of rock burned through their set sounding more polished than ever, masterfully executing spot on renditions of mega hits like “Suffragette City”, “Whole Lotta Love”, “Rebel Yell”, and “Man In The Box”, all while making it look easy. The epic evening wrapped with a one-two punch when Sully Erna (Godsmack) took the mic on “Enter Sandman” and “Another Brick In The Wall”, before finally closing the night out with an “all musicians on deck” jam out of Iggy Pop’s “I Wanna Be Your Dog.”

Where else can you watch the legends of rock as you ring in the New Year for only $50 (GA ticket)?

Camp Freddy For The Holidays

Classic rock n roll super-group Camp Freddy is helping us close out the year right!! For 3 weeks, the boys bring us thru the decades of the 70’s (Dec 4), 80’s (Dec 11), and 90’s (Dec 18). The “Golden Ticket” has sold out – but tickets are still available for all three shows! Thru the years they have been one of our favorite shows – and we can’t wait to spend the holidays together!

A Very Ozzy Holiday

Yes yes yes. The rumors were true! The one and only Ozzy Osbourne took it to a whole other level last night and took the Camp Freddy Finale above and beyond! The man himself was in tip-top shape, and killed it!!
Straight from the horses mouth – check out Billy Morrison’s blog about the epic show last night!

Tired. Drained. Beat. Mentally Exhausted. Emotionally Bankrupt. Spiritually Enlightened. These words describe how I feel after five hours sleep and one of the best Camp Freddy shows in the bands seven years. The noise that the audience made when we brought the one and only Mr Ozzy Osbourne out to the stage was deafening. And Crazy Train, Iron Man and Paranoid brought the house down. I don’t care who you are – watching a true legend like Ozzy perform in a small club like that is a very special and very intense experience. Standing on the stage with him playing those iconic songs is beyond. Linda Perry, Steve Jones, Juliette Lewis, Naveen Andrews, Chris Vrenna, Mark McGrath and Royston Langdon were all part of the final show at The Roxy. And we closed the month long residency with Ozzy and huge smiles all around. The energy was electric, both from the completely sold out venue and the band onstage. Huge thank you’s go out to all the musicians and performers that took part in the shows with us. I hope everyone who played, came out, watched and experienced these gigs had as good a time as we did. I would imagine that pictures and video will be flowing freely as usual and when I get it all, I’ll put it up here. I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and thank each and every one of you for the love and support. 2009, baby. More of the same coming your way soon.

Camp Freddy Tuesdays in December

Camp Freddy Lives On

Camp Freddy Live at The Roxy
Our little residency that could continues to get some pretty great press and is still buzzing! We miss the Camp Freddy guys and couldn’t be happier with all the love they have received – they really killed it and we can’t wait to have them back! Check out this great article from The Sunset Strip site!

One of the most bizarre and interesting moments of the evening came when the Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock was joined by Tiffany (yes, “I Think We’re Alone Now” Tiffany) for a pretty rockin’ version of the Pistols’ “Pretty Vacant.” Never thought I’d be applauding Tiffany for a gritty performance of a Sex Pistols’ tune, but there is was, on stage at the Roxy.
Also in on the fun were Incubus’ Brandon Boyd, who guested on “Good Times, Bad Times,” and Fuel’s Brett Scallions. And offering up some of the highest octane star-power of the evening was Rage Against The Machine and Los Angeles’ own Tom Morello playing guitar on “Roadhouse Blues” and “Brown Sugar,” then sitting in on drums for a rousing finale of The Stooges’ “I Wanna Be Your Dog.”
Camp Freddy’s sold out May run may be done, but my ears are still ringing from all of that great rock and roll performed by so many of the world’s best. The show was such a success that I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some more dates in the near future. But those of us who were there to witness it in person have a little piece of rock and roll history, raw, unscripted, and loud, etched into our soul!
