THE FRITZ IS LIVE ROCK.
THE FRITZ IS LIVE FUNK.
THE FRITZ IS LIVE MUSIC.
After five years of traveling the East Coast and steadily building a reputation as a live act not to be missed, Asheville music ambassadors, The Fritz, played a strong year of sets showing thousands of new fans what throngs of Southeastern music lovers have known for years: The Fritz likes to get funky. As much as they take their funk seriously, the band takes it’s rock-honed songwriting just as seriously, but the well crafted song is not the only final product in the live forum. Individually, the members of The Fritz are masters of improvisation, carefully weaving their personality into each performance.
While the music may range from hard driving soul to progressive rock, a common thread of The Fritz’s passionate energy reigns true in each show. Whether live or in the studio, the band creates an energetic dance party every time. Their 2013 release, Bootstrap, released positive acclaim around the region. The Fritz brought several unforgettable performances to festivals all over the East Coast. As 2016 rounds to a close, the boys are preparing to enter the studio to record a new album with the help of Dave Brandwein (Turkuaz, The London Souls, Zongo Junction). The Fritz looks forward to a great year in 2017, as they continue to spread the good Fritz gospel of intoxicating live music.
THE FRITZ is:
Jamar Woods – Keyboards, Vocals
Jamie Hendrickson – Guitar, Backup Vocals

Twin brothers Eric and Kyle Travers have been making music and stunning audiences since they first began performing together at 13 years old.
In 2012 the twin brothers formed their latest project, Travers Brothership, an Alternative, Soul, and Funk ensemble based out of Asheville, NC.
It is safe to say The Brothership stands out amongst most acts climbing the charts in the U.S. today. Why do they stand out so boldly amongst the others? They care to make each concert a unique and unforgettable experience. Utilizing the band's unmatched live energy and superior songwriting, they create a live atmosphere that transforms an audience into a community. A Travers Brothership concert is best described as a wild block party, and this is a party you don't wanna miss.
Following the success of the "I Don't Mind EP" the band began touring nationally in 2013 and has since performed 400+ concerts across the United States. The band has shared the stage with many accomplished acts such as: Charles Bradley, Taj Mahal, String Cheese Incident, Blues Traveler, The Marcus King Band, Robert Randolph, Leftover Salmon, Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, Dr. John, and many more.
Over the course of two national tours the band began work with Grammy award winning producer, Juan "Pericles" Covaz, and Grammy nominated engineer, Matt Williams. Following recording sessions at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL and The Eagle Room in Asheville, NC the band's first album "A Way To Survive" was complete.
"A Way To Survive" was released in 2016 to critical acclaim and outstanding reviews. The album has won numerous awards including "Best Studio Album of 2016" at Homegrown Music Network, and has received airplay on radio stations throughout the U.S. and beyond.
Following the success of their first record, the band was voted "Best Alternative Band of 2016" by the readers of Asheville's Mountain Xpress, confirming the bands status as a staple of the Southeast music scene.
