Eclepto Funk Americana consists of Sarah Elle (vocals), Tom Luongo (bass, drums, vocals), and Andy Rojas (guitar, vocals). other musicians come and go as though ruled by the stars, but have included Mike Lunapieana (cello) and Shana Norton (harp).
in December of 2006, Andy started writing with the purpose of putting a collection of songs online to share. in January, 2007, the name Eclepto Funk Americana got attached to that project. in 2011, Tom, a long-time friend from college, came on board. through Twitter, Sarah met up with us. the rest is history.
pretty much anything Andy listens to is open to being ripped off: Bob Dylan and Neil Young ... also Tom Petty ... Bruce Springsteen, of course ... Kurt Cobain. the Beatles, the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, REM. the Smiths, the Cure, New Order. Elvis Costello, the Pixies, Tracy Chapman, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Ani DiFranco, Tom Waits, Cat Powers.
