Fred Berman began playing drums at the age of five, inspired by Ringo Starr, and his neighbor's older sibling's Motown collection. This started a lifelong journey down a musical path that took Fred from the streets of West Philly to the prestigious Philadelphia college of performing arts. There, he studied classical percussion with Anthony Orlando of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and took lessons with R&B and studio legend Bernard Purdie. Having played with too many bands to list, Fred has kept one thing in the front of his musical mind. That being, "Make it feel good!"
