  • Price: Free

Are Friends Electric (AFE) is a rock n’ roll band formed in Central Florida 2012. With their backbone rooted in rock n’ roll, chances they take on the outskirts of traditional R&R is what seems to set AFE apart from the pack. Fronted by husband/wife duo Jeremy and Andrea Mix, they seem to have a certain sumthin’ sumthin’ that makes the music tick and their live show tock.

In an age of somewhat over-produced, self-indulgent music, Are Friends Electric bring a fresh Mix to the table, and yet not afraid to take full advantage of any scraps and utensils that may be hanging around. Are Friends Electric.
