Dr. Fameus (of the Disco Biscuits)
Dr Fameus is an electronic/drum-based music project created by the incredible Disco Biscuits drummer Allen Aucoin. Aucoin explores many different musical realms with DrFameus, ranging from breakbeats to drum 'n' bass to dubstep to techno/house. It is his ability to survey the crowd and then improvise that has allowed Aucoin to play in such diverse projects over the years. Allen began his musical career not onstage, but instead in education and composition, included writing and teaching for award winning percussion ensembles. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Aucoin was given the nickname Dr. Fameus, for being late all the time, and it has stuck ever since. After moving back to the southeast, Aucoin continued teaching while touring with the band Skydog Gypsy. In 2005, after winning a drum-off competition led by the band, Aucoin officially joined up with the Philadelphia-based electronic jam band, the Disco Biscuits. Since winning the "drum off" held by the Biscuits in Atlantic City, Allen has played 450-500 shows with the quartet including shows at the Gorge Amphitheatre and Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The level headed, but talented drummer/producer features surprise guests on keyboards and bass, while taking care of DJing and drumming all on his own. If you love forward-thinking improvisational dance music, do not miss this show. Higher Organix
The power trio from the shire. A blend of house musique, funk, soul, glitch-hop, psychedelic rock, fusion, jazz, drum & bass, break-beat, dub, dubstep, reggae, trance-fusion, livetronic electro and trip hop. ShwizZ
ShwizZ is a unique cast of wild, extraordinary characters groovin' hard out of the Northeast. Best described as a massive melting pot of funkadelic rock and progressive jazz, this giant original sound will be sure to put a smile on your face. The band's variety and depth allows for lovely twists of improv and spontaneity. In addition to creating an undeniable energy and atmosphere, the band never throws the same show twice...and definitely like to shake it.
