The Disco Biscuits
As progenitors of trance-fusion, the Disco Biscuits fearlessly navigate a unique blend of electronica infused with the improvisational dexterity of a rock 'n' roll four-piece. Having met as undergrads at the University of Pennsylvania in the '90s, the Biscuits built a loyal following on the East Coast with their lengthy concerts, featuring inverted, dyslexic and dub versions of their songs -- with the occasional rock opera thrown in. This innovative group has managed to successfully translate their spiraling song compositions into sonically pleasing studio albums, with 2002's Senor Boombox being a sterling example. The departure of drummer Sammy Altman to medical school in 2005 led to the Atlantic City Drum-Off: two nights in front of outspoken fans to test the live chops of potential replacements. Allen Aucoin survived and joined John Gutwillig (guitar), Marc Brownstein (bass) and Aron Magner (keys) for Disco Biscuits 2.0. This touring force continues to traverse mountains, beaches and Europe to satiate the needs of an ever-growing fan base as they play larger venues and festivals.
