CAMP FREDDY is not just a band, but it is also way more than a jam session. CAMP FREDDY is an Occasional Happening, a freak of (Hollywood) nature. What happens when we get together and play is anyone's guess. Surprise guests, lounge singers turned heavy rock superstars, some of the world's greatest guitarists playing three chord punk tunes. I mean, who knows what will happen at the next show? It'
CAMP FREDDY, headed up by Billy Morrison (The Cult), Dave Navarro (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane's Addiction, The Panic Channel), Matt Sorum (Guns N Roses, Velvet Revolver, The Cult), Donovan Leitch (son of legendary folk singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (Jane's Addiction, The Panic Channel), was created for the sole purpose have having a good time. They have, in the six years they have been together, played an ever-growing list of shows, from the bizarre to the fabulous. Opening the world's biggest strip club, through shows for Blender magazine, Sony Playstation, Vanity Fair, Grey Goose Vodka and many others, and on to charity shows to help Tsunami and Hurricane Victims, and low key, secret shows in their Los Angeles hometown, the band continue to play the greatest rock and roll songs in their own beautifully chaotic way.
The list of guests that have joined CAMP FREDDY onstage grows longer and more outrageous with each concert.

CAMP FREDDY, whose name was derived from a character in the classic Michael Caine movie, 'The Italian Job' formerly hosted a radio show on L.A.'s hottest new radio station INDIE 103.1FM. The radio show was nominated for Best Radio Show by the LA Weekly in 2005, and Camp Freddy Radio was an extension of the bands live performances with drop-in guests, live on-air calls to the 'ladies of the night' and a great selection of music. Jam band, covers band, party band, or just a great night out. Camp Freddy continued the madness in 2008 at the Roxy with a five show residency every Thursday in May and a four show residency Tuesdays in December, as well as performing for the Hilfiger Sessions in NYC, Galpin Auto Sports, another X-Games gig, John Varvatos, and many other shows. 2009 will be just as amazing!
