CUBA BC - THE SONG THAT IS  FRED'S TRUE LIFE STORY

 

Fred "Fernando" Beato was born in 1952 and raised in Cuba where his father played violin for the Cuban Philharmonic.  Sadly his father passed away when Fred was young, then when Fidel Castro came to power and turned the idyllic Cuban island paradise into an oppressed Communist country, his widowed mother Cory selflessly sent Fred to Miami at age 10, alone, during Operation Pedro Pan (Peter Pan- sending kids to Neverland) to give him the chance for a better life.

1968 - FRED AND DAVID'S BAND WINS U.S. BATTLE OF THE BANDS

 

Read the Symbols of Tyme Story

 

It was 1967 and young high school sophomore, drummer Fred Beato, had a vision to put a band together. Not just any band, but “his own” hand-chosen band. He was an unstoppable force with that hot Cuban blood and eye-of-the-tiger hunger who followed his instincts and managed to corral a bunch of multi-ethnic local musicians to form what would become the hottest band in the South Bay of Los Angeles.
