John Freund – Lead Vocals, Hammond B3 and Keyboards
The band formed around Hammond organist John Freund. John’s Hammond playing gives the unBrothers their old-school authenticity, and he also performs lead and backing vocals with the band. John is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, and has two CD’s as a bandleader with ‘Bigger than a Breadbox’ (www.biggerthanabreadbox.com). He can work the Hammond into any setting and has done a ton of sideman work; recording and/or appearing with Paramore, Mike Jackson and the Soul Providers (later known as the Dap Kings), Rod Morgenstein, Deep Banana Blackout, and well-known NYC-based bands The Healers and Xmembers. You can also hear him performing music and “pulpiteering” in Unitarian Universalist congregations across the region.
