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.....

Keith David's Jazz Cabaret with the Noel Freidline Quartet

 —  —

The Jazz Corner, 1000 William HIlton Parkway, Hilton Head Is., SC


Keith David is a classically trained, multiple Emmy award winning actor.

In addition to his versatile acting and voiceover work, Keith is also a remarkable singer. He has presented “Too Marvelous for Words”, in which he portrays the legendary singer Nat King Cole, at venues around the country. He is developing a show about the legendary Blues singer Joe Williams, “Here’s to Life.”

He is currently on hiatus from shooting a new series for producer JJ Abrams and HBO Max entitled “Duster.” He recently shot “The Gray House,” a drama series produced by Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman, in Romania. Previously Keith starred alongside Zoe Saldana in the Netflix limited series “From Scratch,” for which he won the NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series. Keith was featured in Jordan Peele’s latest film “Nope.” He starred in the TV series "Greenleaf" for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network for 5 seasons. He also recently starred in “Black As Night” for Blumhouse / Amazon.

In “Greenleaf” Keith portrayed ‘Bishop James Greenleaf’, the charismatic and God-fearing leader of the Calvary Fellowship and the patriarch of the family. The series followed the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family, their scandalous secrets and lies, and their sprawling Memphis megachurch. The series was praised for its push and pull dynamic, its hypocrisy, and its compelling characters. Keith's stellar performance was best stated by The Hollywood Reporter, “... Keith David ...is perfectly cast as Bishop Greenleaf. Whether he's playing to the congregation at the altar or getting conspiratorial in a smaller venue, this is an unusually great and meaty role for David.”

Other big screen credits include Keith co-starring in Chadwick Boseman’s last film "21 Bridges". Prior appearances include “Night School” with Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish and “Tales from the Hood 2”. Other highlights from Keith’s movie career include the Academy award-winning films “Crash” and “Platoon.” He is widely recognized for appearing in Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog”, “Requiem for a Dream”, “Men at Work”, “They Live”, “There’s Something About Mary”, and “The Thing.”

Other recent TV credits include "Leverage: Redemption," “Creepshow,” “NCIS: New Orleans,” “Blackish,” and “MacGyver”. Earlier credits include “Community”, “Enlisted”, “ER”, and “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”. On Broadway, Keith starred in August Wilson’s “Seven Guitars” and “Jelly’s Last Jam” for which he garnered a Tony Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical.

Keith’s work as a voice actor has made him a household name. His rich and powerful voice has been featured in national commercials, award shows, documentaries, video games, and animation. By virtue of his long collaboration with award winning documentarian Ken Burns, Keith has earned three Emmys for narrating “Jackie Robinson”, “The War”, and “Unforgivable Blackness – The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson”. His most recent narration was for “Muhammad Ali: A Documentary by Ken Burns.” Other voice acting credits include countless fan favorites such as “Adventure Time”, “Bojack Horseman,” “Rick & Morty”, “Spawn”, and “Gargoyles”. Keith has lent his voice to many videogame titles. Recently he portrayed the character “Spawn” in the reboot of “Mortal Kombat”. Other appearances include the “Halo” series (games 2, 3, and 5), the “Saint’s Row” series (games 1, 2, and 4), as well as the “Mass Effect” series (games 1,2, and 3).

Born and raised in New York by his parents Lester and Dolores, Keith became interested in the arts at a very young age. After appearing in his school’s production of “The Wizard of Oz”, he knew this was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. He enrolled in New York's High School of the Performing Arts and continued his studies at The Juilliard School. After graduation, he was immediately hired by Joseph Papp as an understudy for the role of Tullus Aufidius in William Shakespeare's "Coriolanus." His work with Mr. Papp and the New York Shakespeare Festival launched his incredible career.
