The Fav EP- 2009- is a short run 5 track EP recorded with our former drummer. We haven't had any airplay and currently aren't streaming but would like to soon! Currently recording our full length album!



The Fav is the multi-talented trio that hails from Boise, Idaho.
Formed in 2008, best friends since high school, Matt Fabbi (bass and vocals) and Aaron Connolly (guitar) began collaborating and defining their style.
They started writing music steeped in a unique fusion of rock, funk and country. After all, they have grown up listening to and being influenced by artists such as Dave Matthews, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Police.
Matt is also the grandson of local music great, Monte Lee Saxton (original member of the Fabulous Chancellors and accomplished solo recording artist).
Aaron was raised in a family that was also very artistically inclined. He and his sister (another accomplished local musician), Audra Connolly, grew up playing music together.

In 2009 they added Matt’s uncle, Steve Saxton on drums. Steve, a Boise native, lived in Nashville for several years and spent his time honing his skills playing with pop punk band, Teen Idols.

Over the last 2 years, this trio has been playing the local scene and in the process has become a well oiled machine that cranks out tight, melodic grooves that gets every crowd on their feet!

Their new CD is slated for release in the Spring of 2011 and is actually their sophomore project but features new song arrangements, as well as new material. The compilation is musically diverse and the band promises that no two songs sound alike. This new album features a cameo appearance by Boise music icon, Marcus Eaton.
The Fav is planning on promoting their new release this summer with a Northwest tour.
