The first show ever took place at a local showcase. The entire band was watching The Apers when Kevin Aper asked them on stage.

The reactions were overwhelming, and lead to the first real show. Discovery Shows kept on coming in and at a showcase they where approached by Scal Langelaan of Mojo (the leading booking agency in The Netherlands) with the question if they'd like to play at the Lowlands 2003 festival. This got them a lot of publicity. Interviews took place with 3FM, Oor and other big names.

A documentary was shot and broadcasted throughout the entire Netherlands by the VPRO. This documentary showed the preparations prior to the biggest show they've ever played for more than 4000 people. Then... Two major labels; Universal Music and Dino/EMI got in touch with The Freckles. Because of the bad overall sales of CD's, Dino/EMI decided not to sign The Freckles.

September 2005: The Freckles release their first album entitled: Taking chances, making changes. Recorded in Rotterdam's # 1 studio. Interviews were taken by the Algemeen Dagblad and many local newspapers. 2006/2007 March 2006 The Freckles got airplay on the national radio station; 3FM, with the song Taking Chances, Making Changes.

A live show was given too. The same month The Freckles appeared on a CD with big dutch bands like The Heideroosjes and Peter Pan Speedrock. The idea was to cover and record a song from The Apers. This to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
