A quintet hailing from north Jersey, Function For Fiction is headed by singer/songwriter Brendan "Herb" Campbell, whose intricate compositions and exceptional lyrical stylings are the backbone of the group. On the drums is Ian Francia, providing high energy, punch-to-the-chest beats that drive this five piece. The other half of the rhythm section is Trev Campbell, whose thumping bass riffs are only rivaled by his insane dance moves. With a pedal board that looks like the inside of the Millennium Falcon, coupled with an exuberant stage presence, guitarist Alban Murati brings a fresher-than-thou feel to the band both sonically and visually. Lastly (but surely not least) is Nick "The Cheese" Romano, whose silky-smooth horn lines can only be described as "sexy."
With a set list of over 20 originals, Function For Fiction brings a unique array of dynamically complex and hard hitting tracks that are only rivaled by their explosive energy on the stage. Amidst the feel-good covers of artists such as Johnny Cash, The Doors, Sublime, and Elvis, Function For Fiction's material is like a salad bar of musical genres and styles - just a little bit of everything.
