Anyway, who are "The Ferocious Few"?
Americana rockers, the Ferocious Few, continue to prove that blue collar music with an honest message will always have a home in the middle class. "I make music that's true to me, I sing a message that is pure to myself, we perform a real show." A band that blends high paced rock 'n roll, folk lyrics, a punk edge and a rockabilly sensibility. They pull decades of the human experience directly into their sound and show.
Continuing to prove that good quality music with an influential message is still being sought after by the listening public, Francisco Fernandez (2002) and the Ferocious Few (2005) have spent the last sixteen years gaining ground with audiences around the world.
The Ferocious Few is made up of Francisco Fernandez as lead singer and spunky left handed guitarist, along with drummer Daniel Aguilar. European drummers include Jeremy Black and Felix Ritz (depending on location).
Francisco and The Ferocious Few started out busking (street performing) and playing small bars in 2005. Their rousing guitar riffs and drum kicks brought in good daily wages and the attention of larger California stage venues such as The Great American Music Hall, Saratoga Mountain Winery, Bottom of the Hill, and The Independent San Francisco. In 2007, The Ferocious Few broke into the rock scene when they opened for Steve Miller and Joe Cocker respectively. After releasing two CD's independently, the band released "Juices" under the Birdman Records label (2010) and returned to DIY with "The Ferocious Few" in 2015 followed by a re-release in 2018.
To date, Francisco and his bandmates have toured extensively performing at countless shows and festivals across America. Notable Festival venues include Coachella (2015), SXSW (Austin TX-10 yrs.), Lightning in a Bottle, Burning Man, Noise Pop and Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival to name a few. Acclaimed National Tours and Shows have consisted of opening for artists such as Cyndi Lauper's Memphis Blues Tour (US National Tour, 20 Dates), Lynyrd Skynrd (2 shows), Shooter Jennings (3 shows), Snoop Doggy Dog, Billy Idol, The Led Zeppelin Experience with Jason Bonham, Mumford and Sons, Moby, plus a surplus of noteworthy acts.
Francisco has also toured solo all across the USA with a stop at the Beatles 50th Anniversary concert in New York to co-host and perform at the iconic event.
Francisco Fernandez is currently calling Luxembourg home with ever broadening their reach across Europe and the US. Follow The Ferocious Few on Facebook to get an up to date tour schedule and learn more about this "rollicking, soulful, garage-rock" band.
Who is Kid Colling Cartel?
Kid Colling is a Colombian-Luxembourgish singer-songwriter and guitarist. From an early age he was drawn by the magical sounds of the Mississippi blues and the rhythm and swing of the big bands: the blues had touched his soul. At age 16, he got his first guitar and immediately knew that music will be his life. Colling is a graduate from the American School of Modern Music in Paris where he discovered jazz music and learned from such greats as Peter Giron, Rick Margitza, Manuel Rocheman or Christopher Culpo. Colling is constantly looking for collaborations and projects in order to broaden his musical horizons. After singing with Marly Marques in a rhythm & blues band and playing the guitar for the harmonica player Dave White, he works since 2014 with the American folkblues singer Ilene Barnes.
"I think being a musician is a life choice. It is a hard path to go! I don't do this for the glory, I chose this way because I think it's the most honest part of me, and because it makes me feel kind of free of this mad world."
