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.
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 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.
Mikey Likes iT
Mikey Likes iT is the musical identity of Michael Robinson, a NJ based EDM producer whose music is a blend of intricate bass-lines and atmospheric soundscapes. Mikey began his courtship with music at the age of 13 when he picked up a pair of Technics 1200's and began experimenting with gabber and techno. His skills progressed quickly and soon he was playing raves and warehouse parties with some of
the biggest DJ's on the east coast. After entering college, Mikey felt the urge to delve deeper into the creative side of music and began producing with Ableton. His early beats were infused with both Hip-Hop and Electronic rhythms, often blurring the line between the two. He soon discovered that bass was his weapon of choice, and his tracks started to take on more of a dubstep feel. During this time, Mikey was a member of the DJ group The Future Kids with Jasha Tull aka Space Jesus and Bart Tyrpien aka Bartlomein. The dance friendly blends and remixes which made The Future Kids a household name in the central Jersey party scene taught Mikey the methods to hype a crowd. In 2011, these three came together to form the Planet Cognac collective, often collaborating on productions and sharing the stage at shows. These days, Mikey's music can best be described as a bass-fueled deep space adventure sprinkled with hints of glitch-hop, lazerbass, breaks, drum n' bass, and dubstep. His energetic sets have left crowds in a frenzy across the Northeast, playing alongside acts such as Conspirator, Phutureprimitive, Bluetech, KJ Sawka, Wobblesauce, Damn Right, Space Jesus, and many others. One thing that's been proven: if Mikey likes it, your friends will too.
