Fred Bogert

Fred Bogert has spent the last 45 years as composer, producer and performer of every style of music. Fourteen years ago he moved to Louisville from Nashville, where he recorded over three thousand songs as proprietor of Historic RCA Studio B and neighboring Studio C. Three of the CD’s he produced were nominated for Grammies.

Fred has performed on many of America’s finest stages, including the Ryman Auditorium and the Fillmore West. He has written for and performed with the Austin Symphony and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. He is known throughout the American music industry as a powerful multi-instrumentalist and singer.

As director of Friday Church Fred shapes the content and context of each service through music that fosters the energy Friday Church is known for. The attractive variety of styles and sources of Friday Church’s music comes from Fred’s passion and expertise in bringing out the best of each musician and singer he works with. He also serves as Minister of Music at Ridgewood Baptist, where he was ordained in 2013.

One of the things that Fred loves most about serving at HBC is meeting and working with so many “doers of the word” in both the staff and congregation. “It’s humbling and intriguing to be on a path full of such wonderful adventurers.”
