Fred reunited with old friends and family -- and fellow musicians old and new when he appeared Sunday, Aug. 14, as a special guest in the Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Downtown Mobile. The event was organized by Fred's "brother" Karl Hill of HearMobile.net, and featured a band led by saxophonist Roland Cobb.
Among those in attendance were saxophonist Theodore Arthur, a friend and musical cohort of Fred's from way back in the day, and a former member of Fred's New JBs; Jabo Starks, Mobile native and famed drummer from the the original JBs; and Gertie Wesley, Fred's first wife and mother of his three lovely daughters.
Here are photos from the event. Enjoy.
