Fabian Jack are a rock band from London. Their sound echoes from a rich past, mixing new wave, disco, dance, dub and a heavy dose of eighties pop. Think The 1975 married to Queens of the Stone Age, having a fling with Vampire weekend and you can start to build a picture of a band bursting with energy, catchy tunes and a commanding stage presence.
The band love performing. It’s a completely live set, so they can engage with their audience and gigs can often veer off course at any given moment. Expect the unexpected, and get ready to join the party.
The band is fronted by Beni (Champion Vocals), garrisoned with tough love from his big sister, Piera (Supreme keys & sassy backing vocals). Eager to gain your attention, whether it’s the slightest head bob or joining them up on stage, they don’t give up until they get it. Add to this, silky guitar licks (JP), radioactive bass (Chris), and drums of thunder (John) and drench yourself in loud, sweaty reward. The band share a silly sense of humour which is evident in their shows. However, don’t be fooled by their lust for inflatables and glow sticks. This band know when to cut away, pare down, sit back when necessary, and then turn it up for maximum impact at the right moment.
They’ve collectively featured on the BBC, Radio X, Amazing Radio, countless local radio stations and have made appearances on Balcony TV, supported big artists such as Echo and the Bunnymen, Roger Daltrey, Razorlight, Noisettes, Erasure, and toured all over the UK and Europe.
Today, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a venue, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the FJ-Team…
