Welcome to the official Noel Freidline website.  Our apologies if you were lured into one of the unofficial Noel Freidline websites.  I don't believe any of those actually exist, but if they do, please accept our apologies in advance for any confusion.

 

So lets address the ELEPHANT in the room. 

 

If you have visited us any time in the last several years you probably left discouraged and unimpressed.  Because NOTHING WAS UPDATED!!!!  I wish we had a good excuse.  I don't.  But we do have a sincere apology. 

 

Since we are almost 20% into the 21st Century, I thought it would be a good idea to maintain a working and useful website. 

 

 

I don't blame you if you are skeptical.....

 

 

But check out the CALENDAR

And check out the NFQ Audio Player

Or go to the AUDIO page. 

And the PHOTO GALLERY

 

In the meantime, THANK YOU SO MUCH for checking us out, or giving us another chance. 

 

ALSO, we have a new album out. Here is the super neato and ultra-hip retro album cover. 

 

 

We are really proud of this recording.  It features the unparalleled Maria Howell on vocals, the lovely and talented Juan Rollan on sax, the not-quite-as lovely but definitely as talented Billy Thornton on bass, and the lovely, talented and unparalleled Al Sergel on drums.

 

If you click on "AUDIO" you can stream the entire album right off of our site. 

 

We will have hard copy CDs available the beginning of July, but we are taking pre-orders now.  Pre-orders will ship AUTOGRAPHED at the beginning of July. You can pre-order a hard copy at our STORE.

 

It is available RIGHT NOW to purchase and download at Itunes or OldDevilMoonCD.com.

 

Or visit our SONGWHIP page, which lists everywhere "Old Devil Moon" is available to either purchase or stream.

 

 

Upcoming Performancs

Moonlight on Main: Noel Freidline & Maria Howell

Stowe Park, 24 S. Main St, Belmont, NC

You know actress Maria Howell from several Oscar-nominated feature films, The Color Purple, Hidden Figures, and the Academy Award Winning film, The Blind Side. Join us to watch as she and legendary musician, Noel Freidline, define chemistry. Musically they breath as one, communicating almost telepathically as they explore and re-interpret some of the best music of the last 80 years. Always approaching the music from “the left,” Noel and Maria have made a name for themselves as they offer listeners something they have heard, but that they have never heard before. Combine this fresh musical approach with a rapport and witty banter that harkens back to the days of the Rat Pack, and you have Noel and Maria in their element: on stage, thrilling an audience at every turn.

Tickets $25; see site for additional information
