Best Of Foo is a NY/NJ-based Tribute to the Foo Fighters,
that were formed in early 2017. Before the group’s formation, Dennis Kozar,
Juan Hernandez, Mike Ferreira, and Chris Kozar played in an original band
called Civic. When their singer departed the group, they had no luck finding
the right replacement. To fill the musical void, they jammed on cover tunes,
but mainly focused on the Foos. After learning a handful of songs, they
realized a tribute band was a possibility. When they discussed who could be a
candidate to act as the Dave Grohl of the group, Phil Barbetta of the band Corevalay immediately came to mind. His passion and aggressive vocals fit
best with the Foo Fighters' sound. After a few rehearsals, a new band was
officially formed under the name Best Of Foo.
Their debut was in October of 2017. Show offers and a
growing audience began to escalate quickly. Part of what makes this band
successful is that their sincere love for the Foo Fighters connects with
their audience. Their audience is an active participant, singing along to
all their favorite songs. Music is medicine for the soul, and that is what
this band brings for the crowd, as well as themselves. The goal is to play to
an ever-growing audience and to celebrate the music of the Foo Fighters!
