About the Band

Free and Easy is Minnesota's premiere stage band that went into the MN Music Hall of fame in 2008. Free and Easy (FnE) cuts their teeth on Santana, Tower of Power, Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder and all things funky. You’ll also love their takes on Pharrell Williams, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, John Legend and Justin Timberlake. If you want to take a walk on the retro side, you’ll love their Prince Medley and might see a little Michael Jackson break out!


Free and Easy has launched into a new generation by adding three dynamic front-line vocalists to the group. Vocalist Brent Rice, who competed on the first season of The Voice, Jeff Skidmore vocalist extraordinaire ,and local legend Melanie Anderson. They bring in the new school sounds of Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Whitney Houston, Beyonce to make killer vocals in the Twin Cities funkiest band!
