summer 2022

back in new mexico!!

Well, I've been spending the entire summer in my hometown of Alamogordo, and it's been quite a whirlwind of events, parties, funerals, motorcycle rides, a few gigs here and there, and mostly working on the family property, renovating what I can, with the help of good friends, thanks to God.  My cancer is under control and my bone metastasis is stable, again gracias a Dios. 

I will be here until Labor Day, and then return to Phoenix to continue performing at various venues there from Sept - May.  I swore I'd never spend another scorching summer in Phoenix again and I kept my word.  It's been cooler, though still warm here in southern New Mexico, but ohhhh the nights. Soooo nice... Thank you for your continued prayers and support.  I have a wheelbarrow full of gratitude for all of you, and a bunch of dirt and scrap wood and old nails.  Hasta la proxima, amigos....

Oh, here's a tribute to Olivia Newton-John that I did on the night of the day she died.  She had the voice and face of an angel... RIP

Roadrunner Emporium, 928 New York Ave., Alamogordo, NM

Freddie performs in front of a 100 year old bank safe door, inside this wonderland of gifts, art, and other amazing objects and clothing. It's hard to possibly describe all the articles they have for sale in this place. You pretty much have to see it to believe it. Come in and browse while Freddie's music floats throughout the store.

The Pub at Lowe's Signature Market, 675 E. 10th St., Alamogordo, NM

That's right... Freddie performs solo acoustic at this beer and wine pub INSIDE a grocery store!! It's his favorite place to play in his hometown due to the intimacy and close proximity of the audience who is all ears and so supportive of his music and his condition. A must attend since this is the last time he plays here before heading back to Phoenix for the season. Have an ice cold regional beer and pick up some milk and eggs on your way out. Ha Ha!!
