The Farfisas - Surf Far, Surf Good: Now Available iTunes & CDBaby

The Farfisas - Surf Far, Surf GoodThe Farfisas Are:
Frankie Farfisa: Guitar, yells
Freddie Farfisa: Bass
Philip Farfisa: Farfisa
"Big" Fredo "Daddy" Farfisa: Drums

The Farfisas formed in early 2011 on Long Island, NY by Frankie who was at that time performing with a rockabilly band named 'Hey Hey, Why Why?' and living out of a Winibago. He ran in to Freddie who worked at a local bait and tackle shop. The two hit it off and decided to form their own band.

After seeing Fredo and Philip performing as the duo 'Rude Dude', Frankie coaxed them to join what would eventually become the Farfisas. Everyone took the surname 'Farfisas' as a tip of the hat to The Ramones.

Their debut CD 'Surf, Far - Surf Good' is available on iTunes, CDBaby and other popular non brick and mortar locations.

Conceived, Produced and Performed by Rick Horvath
