About Us

Pop music with a worldbeat attitude. Acoustic rock, pop and country emphasizing vocals and rhythm. All styles and eras: Elvis to Young the Giant, the Beatles to the Foo Fighters. (Check out the song list!) Gary McKinney (singer/songwriter and guitarist), Richard Roberts (bass and vocals), Jenny Roberts (keyboards, trumpet and vocals), Nathan Matson (drums and vocals), and John May (lead guitar and vocals). The Freeloaders can play your front room or a casino, a house concert or a concert in the park.

Who is Fritz? He was our original bass player's guide dog, the ever-lovable golden lab. When Dave left the name stuck, and Fritz evolved from a flesh-and-blood presence to logo and mythological presence.

Gary is also an author, editor, publisher, and owner of Kearney Street Books (Books that Rock!). His current novel is "Darkness Bids the Dead Goodbye." (“Great fun!” says the Seattle Times.)
