Fred Barreto Group
The Brazilian guitarist, Fred Barreto is one of a kind!
He is one of those musicians who are recognizable from the first notes played! Barreto means serious when it comes to playing solid Rock or raw Blues and there’s no need to try finding similarities with other guitar players: Fred Barreto is an accomplished guitarist and does his own “thing” with great talent,virtuosity and soul.
When teaming up with Nadja Prange (organ), Daniel Fastro (bass) and Michael Stein (drums), theyform Fred Barreto Group, or just, FBG.
This passionate Luxembourg-based Blues-Rock Quartet combines the timeless energy of Rock music and the soulful vibes of Blues with a new-fashioned, distinctive character and vibrant drive, which can be felt and heard especially during their live performances.
FBG has played over 150 concerts in the last years, with highlights such as opening for Ian Paice (Deep Purple) and Ana Popovic, playing the main stage at Blues & Jazz Rallye, sharing the stage with Canned Heat, Roben Ford, Kirk Fletcher at Blues Express Festival and travelling to Reunion Island to play Dekatali Festival.
Fred Barreto Group's first single, "So Many Things” wasreleased in 2016. In 2019, followed the second single, "Time To Escape", and the "For So Long" EP.
Now, in 2021, after releasing three singles over the year, “Living and Loving”, “Dream Again” and “Moving On”, they finally released their first full-length album, “Moving On”.
Founded in 2011 by the common desire of five friends to do blues covers, the group ends up quickly composing its own songs. Numerous concerts follow, allowing Heavy Petrol to gain a certain notoriety. The band's sound is strongly influenced by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter and Joe Bonamassa. Today, Heavy Petrol consists of Woody Lunari on vocals and harmonica, Chris Moiny and Steve Richer on guitars, Dan Kries on bass, Konni Troost on drums and Elise Nunes on vocals.
