Fred Vierra has a wealth of experience, playing with more than 50 different bands over the years, including a variety of tribute bands commemorating the Doors, Credence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison, and Steppenwolf, to name a few. He has played with Quicksilver Messenger and Missing Persons, participated in the San Francisco’s Summer of Love concert, and has been on tour to Japan.
Fred specializes in and favors the big, psychedelic sound from the 60s and synth pop from the 80s. He uses a variety of tricks and tools on his keyboard rig to accomplish all the various piano sounds, strings, horns and other unique noises, including a Korg CX3, a midi trigger board, wav files and a laptop. He provides a curtain of chords to back up the band and produces a rich, full sound.
Glory has given Fred the opportunity to play a great selection of women’s music. Glory is grateful to have Fred as our go-to keyboard sub! We always are confident when we know Fred will be playing with us!
