"With more riffs than a grunge album has any right to have and an eclectic music palette to draw from 'Femme Fatale' is a banger through and through, equal parts metal and grunge, with a hard rock swagger and some great songwriting choices...We have a star in the making here, and if you dig fearless rock music, you will need to ascribe to Church Trosino, killer stuff."
Bruce Turnbull - Journalist PowerPlay Magazine 11/01/21
"Fluffer are the most innovative songwriters of the 21st Century, and I'd fight you to the death to defend that opinion"
Kieran Maguire "K-Dawg" DJ ISX Radio 03/13/21
"I have had the pleasure of listening to this awesome band evolve. What attracted me to them initially was the raw garage sound, reminiscent of the Ramones and The Misfits. 10 seconds later I was a life long Fluffer fan, and once you check them out, so will you."
Dan Montgomery aka The Cremator - DJ The Graveyard Shift 02/06/19
Welcome to the Evolution & Revolution of Fluff n Roll !!!
Seattle based Fluffer plays original hard rockin' music with influences ranging from Metal to Motown with a huge pinch of retro garage rock. One recent reviewer said "Fluffer is an intriguing mix of Black Sabbath darkness,and Ramones Melody delivered by a drunken mid 70's era Alice Cooper".
The name of the band stirs up quite a naughty visual, and the fact that one band members' brother actually worked as a "Fluffer" makes this more than just your typical tongue in cheek band. (Not to say you are safe from them actually trying to put their tongues in your cheek). Fluffer is a dangerous band live especially to themselves. Singer/Guitarist Rob Trosino even played through an electrocution at the Skylark Club in Seattle caused by ungrounded equipment which everyone thought was a theatrical trick.
Signed to ULM Media out of California, Fluffer has been very busy with five full length albums released since July 2016. Their most current release (July 2021) is "Femme Fatale", What makes the band unique is that all profits from album and merchandise sales go towards charities which include Toys for Tots, VH1 Save the Music Foundation, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the Cystic Fibrosis Treatment Society, Domestic Abuse Women's Network, and their local King and Pacific County Food Banks.
Fluffer fans and friends have started a social media trend called Fluffer Fridays and often post the music and merchandise that they have gathered over the course of three albums. Maybe not quite as yummy as Taco Tuesdays, with Fluffer Fridays the band is overwhelmed with the support and sense of community that this has created.
A prime example of the Fluffer Friday Movement!!
