Brooklyn, NY Rock/Metal Band FEFF To Open for Alter Bridge, Sevendust in CT
Webster Theater hosts riveting 3-band rock show on July 30th


     Brooklyn, NY - High profile Brooklyn, NY rock/metal band FEFF is slated to open for two major acts - Alter Bridge and Sevendust - on Wednesday, July 30th at the Webster Theater, 31 Webster Street, Hartford, CT 06114. Doors open at 7PM. $25 general admission - all ages show. FEFF has won numerous awards including one of the Top 12 Unsigned Bands on XM Radio, has toured cross-country with Jagermeister-sponsored band SiX in 2007 and also toured the Southeast early in 2008.

     Imagine this - in a business dominated by plastic pop stars, ready-made radio hits and American idols, there's still a hard rock band doing it all by themselves the old fashioned way - taking the music to the people, winning fans face to face, and in the process, earning the title "The future of Hard Rock" (WRHU 88.7FM). Not too bad for four boys from Brooklyn... The story begins in late 2003, when the New York born and raised Pfeffer brothers Rob (Vocals, Guitar) and Dan (Guitar) set out to create an original hard-hitting sound that would incorporate aggressive melodies, in your face guitars and ear grabbing, radio-ready hooks, while still staying true to the band's old school metal influences. FEFF's lineup solidified with the additions of Pat Crotty (Drums), and Adam James (Bass). The band hit the New York club circuit and beyond with an incredibly powerful, high energy show that won them a loyal following of hard rock fans all over the country.

     The band's early demos began receiving airplay on NYC’s 92.3 K-ROCK. Due to the overwhelming amount of requests, K-ROCK invited FEFF to their studios for an on-air interview with DJ Matt Pinfield. After K-ROCK began playing FEFF, Q104.3 and 102.3 WBAB followed suit, putting FEFF among the few unsigned bands to be played on all three of NYC’s major rock radio stations. In just a few months the band sold every copy of their self titled demo, so FEFF decided it was time to head into the studio to finally record their full length debut album “Question The Motive”. Released on Oct. 20th, 2006 to anxiously awaiting fans all across the world, the new LP further proves that FEFF is a force to be reckoned with in the hard rock world. Necessity being the mother of invention, the label-less band has consistently thought up cutting edge ways to utilize the internet to get the CD into the hands of fans worldwide. Astonishing sales of “Question The Motive”, and tens of thousands of hits to their website every day has made FEFF one of the most successful unsigned hard rock bands in the United States. Needless to say, this sort of commotion did not go unnoticed. Sirius satellite radio’s The Howard Stern Show took a liking to the band and has consistently plugged FEFF on the air while also using tracks from the bands brand new album as bumpers and intros’ to the show. XM Satellite Radio also jumped on the FEFF bandwagon, labeling them as one of the top twelve unsigned bands in the country following a long run as one of the most played and requested bands on XM channel 52.

     Even with all this, it’s the live show where FEFF really shines. The band embarked on their first tour in the fall of 2006, a three week escapade which brought their raw, energetic live show to the entire east coast, and to a sold out New Year's Eve show for 3500 people at Philadelphia's Tower Theatre with Artie Lange of the Howard Stern show. FEFF, always looking to blaze a new trail, performed a 30 date excursion in 2007 which took them from New York to California and everywhere in between. Amidst a mob of apathetic, passionless competitors, FEFF has proven themselves as a band with the attitude and the brains to get what they want. Editor Mike G from Metal Maniacs, said it best; "They’re smart, they're talented. Those are the ones who make it, those are the ones who last."
