Freeman Dre is a storyteller, rolling with an expert band, The Kitchen Party bungee jump across genres without losing a beat, tipping their hat to tradition, while giving the finger to convention. At the core of their musical showmanship are Dre's captivating songs that really need no extra theatrics beyond the authenticity in his lyrics.
The band's 2011 demo 'Red Door Second Floor' won accolades from critics and fans in their home Toronto, as well as Montreal, New York, and as far afield as Eastern Europe, and the UK. Encouraged by the success, their 2012 follow up 'Old Town' is a self-produced, more refined effort, with a storyline inspired by Dre's family history.
Their most recent offering 2015's 'Vodka/Pickle EP' is a six-song collection that comes as a download. Currently, the boys are campaigning for their forth record, 2016 'Reckless Good Intentions' to be produced by Kitchen Party Drummer Neil MacIntosh. Visit to the RocketHub page for more details.
