Fred Spek

After hearing Boots Randolph and Louis Jordan on the cab radio, this ex 18-wheel truck driver ditches the stress of the road and picks up a saxophone. Lack of formal musical training can't stop a good guy from succeeding by being "bad". If Tiny Tim could do it, why not him and so Fred Spek trades the gear-shift for the wood-wind. He now leads and writes for his zany bachelor-pad lounge quartet CaMp CoMbO. Sax/singin', organ, guitar and drums.
