The Fritz (Soul-Driven Dance Rock) https://www.thefritzmusic.com/
THE FRITZ IS LIVE ROCK. THE FRITZ IS LIVE FUNK. THE FRITZ IS LIVE MUSIC.
After five years of traveling the East Coast and steadily building a reputation as a live act not to be missed, Asheville music ambassadors, The Fritz, played a strong year of sets showing thousands of new fans what throngs of Southeastern music lovers have known for years: The Fritz likes to get funky. As much as they take their funk seriously, the band takes it’s rock-honed songwriting just as seriously, but the well crafted song is not the only final product in the live forum. Individually, the members of The Fritz are masters of improvisation, carefully weaving their personality into each performance.
While the music may range from hard driving soul to progressive rock, a common thread of The Fritz’s passionate energy reigns true in each show. Whether live or in the studio, the band creates an energetic dance party every time. Their 2013 release, Bootstrap, released positive acclaim around the region. The Fritz brought several unforgettable performances to festivals all over the East Coast. As 2016 rounds to a close, the boys are preparing to enter the studio to record a new album with the help of Dave Brandwein (Turkuaz, The London Souls, Zongo Junction). The Fritz looks forward to a great year in 2017, as they continue to spread the good Fritz gospel of intoxicating live music.

HARD SOUL = SOUL with a ROCK interpretation.This group represents fiery lyrics that tell the tales of self reflection and humility, paired with Paul Fournier’s unmistakable rock soul vocal presence, and musical sounds that call you to dance, love and be you, earnestly and honestly. WildRoot will get you on your feet with a blend of rock and gospel beats, rock soul guitar rhythms and funky bass lines.
