Welcome to Fred Campbell Entertainment

BIOGRAPHY

Raised in Princeton, NJ, I got my start in music while serving in the U.S. Navy. Then in 1972 while attending Rider College in Lawrenceville, NJ. I joined the Bob-Shoo-Bops, a theatrical oldies revue who were similar to Sha Na Na, singing, dancing and acting out the great songs from the 1950's & 60's. By graduation time in 1973, I found myself hooked on performing and toured the USA and Canada for over 4 years with the Bob Shoo Bops. For more information about the Bob Shoo Bops, search on Goggle and Facebook. 
The Bob Shoo Bops entertained over 4 million people and were on the billing with over 100 oldies acts, such as Johnny Maestro and the Crests and Brooklyn Bridge, Little Richard, Chubby Checker, Tommy James and the Shondells, and actually sang back up for Dion on Runaround Sue at the Philadelphia Civic Center. I eventually formed a cover band, First Class Act, who performed for over 20 years playing at weddings, parties, reunions and oldies concerts, sometimes with over 10,000 in attendance.
The Bob Shoo Bops had another reunion in January 2012 celebrating a surprise birthday party for Steve "Earl Scooter" Scheier at John and Peters in New Hope, PA.  If you would like to hear and see us sing a couple of songs click on the following link to YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hs7cfWs3tJ4

Since moving to Brooksville, Florida in late 2003, I  appear quite often at On Top Of The World in Ocala, FL, which is rated as one on the best retirement communities in the USA. I sing and DJ for several events in The Villages, Lady Lake, Florida. I have also performed twice at the Brooksville Bandshell Bash! concerts, Doo-Wop and Beach Party Themes. At the Doo-Wop Concert, I was on the billing with the Crests again, this time with lead singer, Tommy Mara. Both concerts were estimated at over 1000 in attendance. I have sung at many of the retirement communities in Central Florida, such as Heritage Pines Country Club in Hudson, Wellington Country Club and Timber Pines Country Club in Spring Hill, Glen Lakes in Weeki Wachee, Tampa Bay Golf and Country Club, Silverthorn Golf and Country Club, Sun City Center, Brookridge and Clover Leaf as well as the FMCA at the Hernando County Airport. I have also donated my services to the Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce, Relay for Life and other great causes. Let me give your event a special touch by singing some of the more than 1,000 songs in my personal catalog of music from the 1950's to the 1980's. Many of the songs that I sing are included in the TOP 200 as compiled by online requests made by thousands of clients.
