In memoriam

Fred Giordano

November 29, 1964 - June 22, 2024

Fred Giordano passed suddenly on June 22, 2024. He was the man behind the scenes of everything American Beauty Band accomplished. In passing he is survived by his wife of 24 years Katie G, our vocalist, agent road manager etc as well as a huge number of friends and family.

He was our biggest fan and toughest critic, always giving us the wisdom of his expert ear and musical knowledge, pushing us to be the best band we could be. He was our sound man, personally transporting, configuring and running our live sound. He was also our recording guru, preserving every note in both audio and video. His energy and passion were limitless, always the first to arrive (and snag the best parking) and the last to leave. He was a full member of this band even though he never played or sang a note.

To say he will be missed is a huge understatement but we will keep his spirit alive every time we gather to make the music he lived and loved so passionately

We are all devastated by his passing but our love was real and will NOT FADE AWAY!
