    The Functionals

    Indie Rock

    OUR HEROES days in music started young; Jeff grew up in rural Vermont playing guitar and singing in his band 'Skanky Green', while Jeremy, Kevin, and Ben were rocking out together in upstate NY as 'Echoes'. Many great times were had. College came along, and before freshman year was even halfway done, Jeff and Ben had already met at the University of Rochester and formed a group called 'The Radium Girls' (while Jeremy and Kevin headed off to Boston). Many more shows, stories, and albums slipped by, and soon enough, four years had passed. Ben and Jeff moved east to Boston, and suddenly both Echoes and The Radium Girls coexisted in the same city and practice space. It took two years, but sure enough, the bands collided and 'The Functionals' was born.

     

    Their DEBUT ALBUM, recorded at the Glens Falls Music Academy by Chris Reed, Jr. and mastered by Larry DeVivo of Silvertone Mastering is the net sum of the past two years of writing and recording as The Functionals. With five songs of hard-hitting rock and roll, The Functionals blend influences including Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, Jack White, Foo Fighters, Hendrix, and beyond.
