Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: The Fringe Benefits

Recommended if you like: Aretha Franklin, Pat Benatar, Heart

Story behind your band/artist name: Obama care was coming in and I imagined no one could afford health insurance and that in order to attract good employees you would need to add some fringe benefits.

Band Members: Bruce Moore, "The President of Manassas", guitar synth& vocals; John Fichtner, guitar & vocals; Greg Sales, Bass & vocals; Greg Menke "G2", drums; Julianna Smith, vocals.

What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Northern Virginia. Our home clubs are Lion & Bull Haymarket and Uptown Alley Manassas. We live in Haymarket, Gainesville, Manassas, Woodbridge, Falls Church.

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1) We played the VIP Lounge at Jiffy Lube Live prior to Aerosmith.
2) We had a "rock star moment" when a fan took us on a private tour of his 1758 built home at 3am following a gig.
3) Valley FM 89.5 in Australia released the top 15 songs by indie artists. the #1 song was "You're On My Time Now" written and recorded by our band.

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: We are working on a new album that will have 3 covers and 3 original songs. It is our hope that we can use our recordings to promote attendance at our shows.
