The Fritz is a soul-driven psychedelic funk band hailing from Asheville, NC.
The group’s aggressive approach to funk, soul, and rock creates a sound that is uniquely their own. Their high-energy, danceable songs provide a platform for each member to shine. With powerful vocals, climactic solos, and tight grooves, The Fritz has built a devoted following and is captivating audiences everywhere.
The newest lineup features Datrian Johnson on lead vocals, who has propelled the group to new heights. Many may know Datrian from his work with legendary organist John Medeski’s Saint Disruption. Datrian is a force, and the immediate chemistry with songwriter/music director/guitarist Jamie Hendrickson and drummer Michael Tillis is clear.
