Vocalist Sabrina de Boer was first drawn to music by the sense of connection that it fosters. Family jam sessions were a staple in her home growing up in Newport News, Va. Her music-loving dad and bluegrass-playing grandparents helped her see how sharing creative space was at the heart of making music. Though DysFUNKTion mostly performs covers, the artists are beginning to delve into original songwriting. The band currently consists of de Boer on vocals and bongos, DeMille on keys and harmonica, Matt Job on drums, Adam Barely on guitar and Will Davenport on bass.
