ZERFAS, is a band that its founding member, David Zerfas, put together to produce its first album released in ’73 that is now an extremely rare collectible titled “Zerfas.” Appropriately named as the album tells the story about life and times through music as seen primarily through his eyes. Now, after 43 years, we are reviving ZERFAS to finish the story for which we currently have enough songs finished to complete 2 additional albums of all original music.
As part of the reintroduction of ZERFAS, we are currently preparing the first official CD release of the original album with a bonus CD of all alternate arrangements taken directly from the original masters. The CD release will then be followed by a second official release of the original LP on vinyl.
We’ve uploaded 3 of the songs from the first album to BandMix: “I Need it Higher” is the original recording from the album; however, “Stoney Wellitz” and “The Piper” are alternate arrangements to those that were included in the album.
We are looking for serious, committed, performers that we can produce and record for the next albums and to then perform at a touring level. If you like what you hear and would like to be a part of the next Zerfas chapters, please contact us at your first opportunity through BandMix or at the phone number provided below.
We will provide compensation for group rehearsals, recording/studio time, and performances; as well as additional compensation as performance royalties for participation in albums.

I Need it Higher
I Need it Higher Track number: 1 Year: 1973 Album: ZERFAS Genre: Other
Stoney Wellitz Track number: 2 Year: 1974 Album: Alternate Arrangement of version included on the Zerfas Album Genre: Classic Rock
This arrangement is not mixed – it’s right off the tape.
The Piper Track number: 3 Year: 1979 Album: Alternate Arrangement of version included in Zerfas Album Genre: Classic Rock
This version was more big band rock instead of the acoustic style used on the Zerfas album. It includes a modulated piped organ track followed by a polite applause that we pulled from the actual organ concert.
