Fred Mitchim has been playing music in many forms since the 60's, based in Texas and now in Arizona. Fred is currently playing his original psychedelic rock/bluesy originals and 13th Floor Elevator classics as the Fred Mitchim Band and playing meditative multi-instrument "sound scape music" as KAI. Fred is also one of the current guitarists with the legendary Austin psychedelic rock band from the 60's, The 13th Floor Elevators. Fred has worked with many of the original members of the 13th Floor Elevators for many years including the creation of a complete album with Powell St John from Mother Earth, (writer of several Elevator songs), the forming of the John Ike Walton Revival, in which he played guitar and sang lead vocals, and playing on several occasions with Ronnie Leatherman. Fred formed the Tommy Hall Schedule in 2002, essentially at that time a 13th Floor Elevator tribute band, and had been playing the classic Elevator songs for about 13 years when the Elevators asked Fred to join them on guitar. Fred made contact again with Tommy Hall (Elevator founder) and In 2015 Roky Erickson and the rest of the living Elevators decided to regroup for a reunion concert as the headline show at the 2015 LEVITATION Festival (Austin Psyche Fest) in Austin Texas with Fred on guitar with Eli Southard as replacement for the late Stacey Sutherland.
