Emerging from the Philly suburbs, Faux Paul is a rock band that is currently making its mark on the local music scene. Whether it’s their latest originals or dusting off some guilty pleasure, old skool cover tunes, Faux Paul is sure to please any lover of rock & roll and live music.
Formed in 2011, the members of Faux Paul come from diverse musical backgrounds. AJ Petrolati (vocals, guitars) is heavily influenced by singer songwriters of all generations and is the back-bone of Faux Paul original material. JR DeFrancisco (guitars, vocals) is attracted by loud guitars and banging drums and transforms the simplest riffs into powerful rock anthems. Mike McLatchy (drums) has a deep love for 70’s & 80’s punk rock and is best known for his work with mid-90’s touring band, Krackamack and more recently LD-50, a popular cover band that’s been a local favorite since 1998.
In the short time Faux Paul has been together, they have been focused on creating original music that incorporates, embellishes, and rounds out a mixed bag of musical influences and backgrounds.
