"Steppin' Out Magazine"

King Norris performed a well-meshed mix of covers and original tunes, most of wich could be described as upbeat, often bluesy, straight forward ronk n' roll. This is not, as some might choose to believe, a novelty band getting gigs and packing in crowds because of Fred's notoriety and Howard Stern's far-reaching connections. Sure, those factors add to it, but King Norris is a for-real band that combines ballistic bass and pounding drums with intricate guitar work and stong vocals. A fair amount of audience members made it obviuos that they already own King Norris' CD, as they were singing along to every song and shouting out request for particular tunes, and those who were hearing the band for the first time seemed to be having a great time. It doesn't really matter whether you hate the self-proclaimed King of All Media or you're a card carrying member of the Howard Stern cult; if you appreciate good music, you should see King Norris. - Leslie Gold


"Long Island Entertainment"

For a guy who got up that day at 4:30 in the morning, got to the club at 10pm, and rocked out 'til almost 2am... Much respect Fred. If you get a chance to see King Norris, you won't be disappointed. - Peter Kuperschmid


"Good Times"

Fred's guitar work is more than capable of grabbing you, shaking you and not letting go 'till you're on your knees bleeding! This man has technique and blistering style. Accompanied by Frank X.Fallon on drums and Robert Boyd on bass, they ran through much of their new CD, "Animal", savagely and competently. A few choice covers were thrown in to boot. No show biz theatrics here, folks... just hard-edged, guitar oriented, ronk and roll. An impressive set, lasting way longer than you'd expect, proved these guys to be more than just a night job for Fred and his cronies. If you have the chance, check these guys out live. - J. Bloomrosen
