eleven eleven is an original/cover band comprised of musicians from the philadelphia area. ok, now that’s out of the way….all you have to do is ask anyone who has ever seen an eleven eleven show and they will tell you it is quite a personal experience. the 4 guys welcome their audience with a top notch set list that includes something for everyone. a broad play list combined with their ridiculously approachable nature makes for a killer time. it’s more often than not that people find themselves involved in an eleven eleven show rather than just watching one. from singing on stage with the band, to the many socials throughout the evening, this experience is not like watching just any other band.
the band is the love-child of singer/guitarist jeff giuliani and drummer/dj rich franchetta. these two have never played in a band without each other and have been rockin’ it for almost 20 years!!! it began as a strictly original outfit, and accomplishments include 6 national album releases. one of which, “the unlovable ep”, reached #17 on the national college cmj chart. with a tour of london england, several national tours opening for bands such as phantom planet, the thrills, echo and the bunnymen, dave gahan and even run dmc, eleven eleven have been “around”. savvy to the scene, and the business of the scene, jeff and rich know what they’re doing (at least most of the time) and love every minute of it.
when the two founders decided to direct the band’s effots to cover songs to fund future original projects, they set out to have a set list that was friendly to a variety of people. if you ask jeff, he’ll tell you that their song selection is geared toward “getting the girls up and dancing”. his theory is simple…”the toughest guy in the club is always going to want to be where the girls are!!!”
with the addition of mike D!!!! on lead guitar and stebs on bass, eleven eleven has a huge sound that is complimented with an awesome sound system and light show. they keep the fun rolling with dj sets in-betweens band sets by DJ Eleven, so don’t miss out, and make sure you see an eleven eleven show for yourself.
