Phil Fritschle


Band to Join, Vocalist, Vocalist - Soprano, Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Piano, Background Singer, Other, Vocalist - Alto.


I have been the guitarist, vocalist and contributing composer for an originals rock band. At one time, we were known as SlapDaddy; then we re-tooled to a power trio and renamed ourselves Redgate. Our primary focus was progressive rock, with an edge - kind of in between Rush and Dream Theater (our two favorite bands). We were not trying to be those bands; but were certainly influenced by them. We are now back to being Slap Daddy. We would really like to get a dedicated vocalist who can handle vocals and crowd interaction. I am okay at singing; but we really need a true vocalist.

Effects: Manypedals - I have a lot of pedals; but I've been going kind of minimal; I no longer use distortion pedals of any kind; because the drive/lead channels on my amps are fantastic. The only pedals I use now modulate the sound - i.e., delay, chorus, wah; etc....
