Harry and the Potters
What would happen if Harry Potter quit the quidditch team, stole a time turner, and started a punk rock band with himself from an earlier point in the space-time continuum? The answer is Harry and the Potters.
Since 2002, brothers Paul and Joe DeGeorge (Harry Potter, Year 7 and Year 4 respectively) have released 3 full length albums and played over 800 shows in libraries, rock clubs, art spaces, bookstores, basements, backyards and pizza places all over the world. Their high-energy live show has been legend for over a decade since Pitchfork placed the band in their Best Live Shows of 2005 list noting, "the greatest rock and roll tour of the year took place this past summer in public libraries across America… The Decemberists wish they could lit-rock like this.”
They are hailed as the founders of the wizard rock, a sub-genre of music boasting nearly 1000 bands playing songs about the Harry Potter books. In 2005, they co-founded the Harry Potter Alliance, a non-profit organization that has pioneered fan activism, and the band was profiled in the 2008 documentary, We Are Wizards. They also appear on a Trivial Pursuit card in Sweden.
The Moaning Myrtles
Wizard Rock songs from the perspective of everyone's favorite Hogwarts bathroom ghost by Lauren Fairweather and Nina Jankowicz.
Lauren Fairweather is a cofounder of the wizard rock group the Moaning Myrtles as well as the YouTube collaborative channel FiveAwesomeGirls. Lauren’s songs feature catchy melodies over acoustic guitar and ukulele and cover everything from Harry Potter to Firefly to real-life experiences.
The Potter Puppet Pals
The Potter Puppet Pals are a popular puppeteering group that make absurdist Harry Potter parody videos featuring an egomaniacal Harry Potter, a completely oblivious Ron, an overly morose Professor Snape and an occasionally naked Dumbledore. Their "Mysterious Ticking Noise" video is one of YouTube's most popular comedy videos of all time with nearly 150 million views and Daniel Radcliffe as a proclaimed fan.
Draco and the Malfoys
Kwikspell is a indie wizard rock band hailing from Austin, TX. Kwikspell began in 2008 is the solo project of Bethany Parker.
I like to play pretend and what better to transform yourself into than a guitar slinging superhero that sings songs about Harry Potter while stomping out world-suck.
