Gump Fiction - 90's Variety - 9:15pm

Gump Fiction is a high-octane, nostalgia-fueled time-machine with one totally radical destination: the 1990s. Known as the Ultimate 90s Experience, they will take you back to the days of dial-up internet, slap bracelets, Tamagotchi pets, and the music you forgot you loved. Gump Fiction is your chance to go back in time and rock out to your favorite A-side tracks, from Nirvana to Britney Spears, and everywhere in between. You think Gump Fiction is just your everyday cover band?  As if! These four guys and one girl bring a premium, customizable entertainment package that can include extra options, such as 90s dance music between sets, 90s trivia, and an authentic, old-school 90s arcade with all of the classic games to really bring the decade alive. Since 2012, the band has performed hundreds of shows across the world, including small, corporate events and high-profile, city-wide festivals for crowds of over 25,000. No matter the size of the show, the members of Gump Fiction pride themselves in tailoring each performance to the unique requirements of the event. Client satisfaction is their number one goal. Aside from being obsessed with all things 1990s, these five individuals have a passion for developing each show specifically to the needs of the client and the desires of the audience. Gump Fiction is professional, experienced, and committed to take your event to the next level through quality music, entertaining showmanship, and of course, your favorite hits of the 90s!
