About the Band

Fredy Boy The Band

Fred Beato recognized his appreciation for rock and roll from the day he landed in America in 1962, from Havana, Cuba.  It was an immediate fascination and adoration for American pop music and Elvis Presley, (the King of Rock of Roll), that only a few months later was magnified 1,000 X’s  by the arrival of the Beatles, (the greatest band, ever!), and the British Invasion.  Fred Beato became hooked on drumming and was an active player for many years.  Later, he channeled his knowledge of drumming to become the founder and CEO of Beato Bags, never totally abandoning his first love, music.  Beato had the good fortune of teaming up again with his former band-mate from his teenage years and recording artist, Tom Croucier, along with his dear friend, Grammy wining drummer, Raul Pineda.  True to their classic rock roots, Beato & Croucier began writing and producing original music. Their unique combination of rock, pop and Latin sounds was enhanced by the skills and instincts of the renowned Raul Pineda.  Together they formed the band, Fredy Boy.  The result is their debut album, Tail Of The Shark  (now on ITunes).

 

Tom Croucier’s destiny as a lead singer and performer began in his high school years with the band, The Symbols of Tyme, where he met Fred Beato.  He went on to sing professionally, performing for a while with Carlos Santana after their “amigos” record. Tom played bass on the Vic Vergat project on Capitol records which then led him to Europe where he was invited by Dieter Dierks to play bass on the Scorpions “Blackout” record. Tom’s bass is featured on the Scorpions hit “No One Like You” and other tracks on that record.  Back in the US, he and his band, Life By Night were signed to Manhattan Records a subsidiary of EMI records. His song and video “Phone to Phone,” were on moderate rotation on MTV for the entire summer of 1986.  Tom played bass with The Turtles featuring Flow and Eddy while also recording  two records for a Japanese band, Air Pavilion and other recording projects.  Tom continues writing his own music and records in his home studio, playing bass and singing with Fredy Boy as well as other artists in the Los Angeles Area.

 

Grammy award-winner and 4-time Grammy-nominated, Raul Pineda, has been named one of today’s best and most innovative drummers in the world.  Raul’s unique style of playing -- a blend of Afro Cuban, contemporary jazz and pop influences applied to the modern drum set -- have catapulted him into being recognized as one of the most prolific and versatile drummers to emerge from Cuba.  Besides bringing his vibrant sound to Fredy Boy and their debut album, Tail of the Shark, Raul has shared the stage and/or recorded with, Chucho Valdes, Juan Gabriel, Michel Camilo, Mike Stern, Eric Marienthal, Arturo Sandoval, Bob Mintzer, Kazumi Watanabe, Roy Hargrove, Claudio Roditi, Pablo Milanes, Jimmy Haslip, Tata Guines, Giovanni Hidalgo, Miguel Anga Diaz, David Sanchez, Janet Bunnet, Baaba Maal, Laura Pausini, Alvaro Torres,  Nestor Torres,  La India,  David Bisbal,  Prince Royce, Andy Garcia, and the list goes on...
