Lefthand Freddy has by now become an institute in Holland but also abroad considering the many international praises in the foreign media. With a record contract in hand the 3 piece band was formed in 1992.Their first cd "Buried in blues" met with good reviews right from the start:
(blues magazine ) Block wrote: " top notch authentic blues that should make every Dutchman proud" .
Dagblad v.h. Noorden: "Fred Reining should be classified as being one of the most original blues artists, he is by far the most creative blues guitarist in the country".
Second cd "Blue Tonight " was applauded even more,
(leading music magazine) Oor dropped the following lines:
This much praised band does not rehash worn out classics but write their own intimate songs.
Songs in which they fuse, in a very personal style, the boogie spirit of John Lee Hooker with the lazy backbeat of Jimmy Reed .
With a growing live reputation a live cd was the next logical step;
by the end of 1995 Out on the road (recorded live in Germany) was released and again the press reviews were ecstatic :
by far the best bluesband in Holland -Oor magazine
A gem of a blues album -Rotterdams Dagblad
Blues subtlety and top skilled guitarwork -Zwolse Courant
More profound than all the macho blues
of the day -Alles op 10
Also in 1995 drummer Will Drenth is replaced by drum animal Hannes Langkamp (ex time bandits,fox the fox and Muskee)
Fourth cd "Urban blues adventures" sets a different mood and marks the end of a then classic lineup:
Bassplayer Cynthio Ooms leaves the band in 2005 and hammondman William Kooistra passes away in 2007.
Lefthand Freddy today is as the new cd title suggests "Back on track" in powertrio format and with a strong line-up.
Halfway 2009 renowned drummer Hans Waterman (ex Cuby + Blizzards, Solution, Jan Akkerman, The Pretty Things) is asked to sit in on a couple of gigs and quickly becomes the new sticksman.
From day one the band is a popular guest abroad (notably in Germany and Belgium). Some tour highlights were concert spots on the Leberkusener Jazzfestival (Germany), The Gloucester Bluesfestival (GB), the Nuit de Blues(France), the Sviget Festival (Hungary), Slovakian bluesfestival (sharing the bill with legendary Ten Years After) and a London debut in the legendary 100 club.
