At age 18, he became the youngest member of the United States Marine Band (“The President’s Own”) in Washington D.C., performing regularly for numerous administrations of seven presidents.
In Florida, he performed with the Walt Disney World Band and for many years led the Goodtimes Dixieland Jazz Band based in Winter Garden.  Fred and the band entertained at the Jazz Festival four times, 2008, 2012, 2013 and 2016.
