"Fryed Brothers Band 41st Annual Bash in the Redwoods"

Event held on 9/10 - 9/12/2021 at Dean Creek Resort in Redway, California. - Thunder Roads Magazine

"Fryed Brothers Band Annual Bash in the Redwoods 2019"

Terri and I were super excited because for the first time in several years our hectic schedule finally worked out, so that we were able to once again attend the annual Fryed Brothers Band Bash! This is a one of a kind biker event that is so laid back that you really get a chance to relax and unwind. So if you have never been but have had thoughts about it, start planning to go next year, you will be very glad you did! - Thunder Roads Magazine by Stan and Terri Hill

"I Ride The Movie by Daron Ker"

"I Ride" is a new feature film which has opened a window onto the wide yet close knit world of biker culture. Sounds like a contradiction, but once you see this film, you will understand. A story about a laid back, all American style rock 'n roll band and the reason for their family focus on bikes and music; a real family story no a music story, but then again, it's a motorcycle-biker culture story; actually, it's all of these. - Quick Throttle Magazine by Randy Twells

"Fryed Brothers Band 25th Anniversary Party"

Party in the Enchanted Forest. Leggett, CA. 9/11.

If the national slogan for Americanism is "baseball, apple pie, and mom", then surely the biker anthem goes something along the lines of "Harley's freedom, and Fryed," The Fryed Brothers Band has been entertaining the biker population for some 25+ years and their contribution to the lifestyle is as indelibly etched in our hearts as are the very motorcycles we love. So, if you were invited to their little soiree in the redwoods (and everybody was, it was right there in the Thunder Press Calendar, folks) then you were among the lucky. For those of us who actually made the pilgrimage to the sacred forest, and many came a great distance, we all know it was an experience of the rarest kind. A program handed out at the event read "The dust ain't settle, the smoke ain't cleared; 25 years and the Fryed's are still here". - Thunder Press Magazine by Felicia Morgan

"Camp Fryed"

There's three runs during the year that i consider "Must attend" events. Sturgis Bike Week, Rip's Bad Ride and the Fryed Brothers Band Anniversary party in the Redwoods. - Biker Magazine by Steve "Beatnik" Werner

"The Fryed Brothers Band - The Love Ride Concert"

It's that earthy energetic mix of country, bluegrass, western swing, rhythm and blues, and rock that's earned The Fryed Brothers the title of the best biker band in the world. Harry and Tommy Fryed formed The Fryed Brothers Band in 1980 after their older brother, mark, was killed on his Harley. They've headlined virtually every major motorcycle rally in the U.S. and toured throughout Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Thailand. Brother Harry's lyrics say it all: "The Party Ain't Over 'til the Fryeds Go Home" - Love Ride Foundation

"The Fryed Brothers Anniversary Party"

The Fryed's have established a loyal following as they've touched the hearts of faithful fans with not just their ability to capture the biker lifestyle in their music, but with the honest sharing of their personal lives as well. - Easyriders Magazine

The Fryed Brothers Band

The Party Ain't over 'til the Fryeds go home,_ goes the song written by legendary biker-bandleader Harry Fryed. He ain't kidding either. And after 44 years the party is still going strong, while the award winning Fryed Brothers Band has been on the road carving out a reputation as the best biker band in the world. Their energetic brand of American roots music is an irresistible stew of country, blues, swing, boogie-woogie and good old roadhouse rock and roll. Sure, many plow these musical fields but few reap the success that the Fryeds have. Why? Because they simply are the best. Their incredible musicianship, entertaining performances and reliable professionalism have elevated them head and shoulders above the pack.

Ask anyone. From George _Rip_ Rose, of Easyriders Magazine, who called them _the epitome of biker bands_ to Willie Nelson who released their CD, _the Roar of Dirty Thunder_ on his Pedernales Records label, singing the title duet with Harry Fryed.

Harry and Tommy Fryed started the Fryed Brothers Band in 1980 in memory of their older brother Mark. For 37 years they have toured relentlessly, not only in the USA, but also Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand. They currently have 4 CD’s with a  DVD “Live at the Doghouse” and "I Ride" the movie. They have headlined every major Motorcycle rally in the country, as well as being regular performers at Willie Nelson's annual Fourth of July picnic.

The laundry list of people they have shared stages and played with, is a wide-ranging who's-who of American music: Willie Nelson, Marshall Tucker Band, Johnny Paycheck, Waylon Jennings, Charlie Daniels, the Doobie Brothers, Jefferson Starship, Nazareth,Steppenwolf, Tower of Power, John Mayal, Commander Cody, Asleep at the Wheel, Edgar Winter, Freddie Powers, Eric Burton, Elvin Bishop, Eddie Money, John McKeon, David Allen Coe, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Canned Heat, Gary Morris, Leon Russell, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Billy Idol, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Pink and many, many more.

Those who might pigeonhole them as _just_ a biker band would be sorely missing the point. With their wide-ranging blend of good-time American music, they've successfully crossed over those narrow boundaries. They've rocked crowds at numerous biker events. They've appeared at rodeos and county fairs all over California. They have been fortunate to have headlined at the Love Ride, Castaic Lake, CA. Every year they play the Redwood Run in Piercy CA. And, were at one time the west-coast back-up band for the late, great, country music legend Johnny Paycheck. They regularly perform at the Knuckle Saloon, Broken Spoke Saloon and Iron Horse Saloon during Sturgis Bike Week. Recently played the Broken Spoke Saloon and Iron Horse Saloon during Daytona Bike Week 2016. Just completed the Easyriders Bike Show Tour on the West and East Coast and also are headlining the Easyriders Bike Rodeo in Fowlerville, MI and Chillicothe, Ohio 2016. Easyriders Bike Tour 2017 and the Easyriders Bike Rodeo 2017

Wherever they've appeared, whatever the venue, for 37 years the Fryed Brothers have proven time and again, that they are a great American band, period.

Check out their movie, I Ride and the I Ride soundtrack - the very best of the Fryed Brothers.
