Press


Friction is not your usual cover band. They cover anywhere from classic rock, 80's, 90's and more current songs that capture their imaginations; something that most cover bands will not do.
Overall, this group is a fun, lively bunch of guys that only want to please their audience, make them happy and have a great time. Their passion for music and love to play shows in their performances and you can see each personality on stage through the instruments they play. This is a one of a kind cover band that shouldn't be missed! - Wassup Magazine

Bio

Since 2003 Friction has been filling bars and festivals gig after gig, quickly becoming one of Chicago’s hottest acts. A cover band with a sound all their own, Friction offers a crowd-friendly playlist, professional performance and unparalleled energy at venues throughout the city.

From classic Motown to Billboard’s latest hits, Friction hits all the right notes with Jeff Schwartz defying the drummer stereotype, often stepping up for lead vocals. Len Gorka assures faithful cover arrangements on keyboard and vocals while Tom Wolski works his magic on the bass guitar. With a wide range of ability, extensive experience and creative ideas, lead vocalist Mike Dermont delivers a powerful voice that’s truly one of a kind. Lead guitarist Barry Goldufsky rounds out the band adding style, technique and energy, making Friction a true force on the music scene.

Playing everywhere from The Park West and House of Blues, to smaller bars and venues, festivals of all sizes and some of Chicago’s top recording studios, Friction has made a name for themselves as unparalleled talent, always bringing professionalism and a huge following wherever they play.

With a killer lineup and knock-out performance presence, Friction keeps crowds moving all night and leaves them screaming for more. For further information, or to schedule a booking, visit www.frictionchicago.com or www.myspace.com/frictionchicago for a current show calendar.
