DrFameus is an electronic music project created by the versatile drummer, Allen Aucoin. Allen explores many 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. This included instructing and writing for award winning percussion ensembles and teaching drum lessons. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts Allen was given the nickname DrFameus and it has stuck ever since. Like so many of us, college was not exactly a punctual time for Allen. He became known as the guy that was famously late all the time; so much that a friend gave him the honorary doctorate, DrFameus.
After moving back to the southeast from Boston, Allen continued to work as a teacher and percussion instructor while touring with the band “Skydog Gyspy." In 2005 Aucoin acquired his current role as the drummer for Philadelphia electronic act, 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.
Keep an eye out for not only live shows, but more studio work from the level headed, but talented drummer/producer.
Bang Bang!! **NYC Debut!**
Bang Bang!! is the BRAND NEW Electronic duo featuring Todd Stoops (RAQ & Kung Fu) & Scotty Zwang (Sonic Spank).
This is going to be quite the treat!
MUN is a quartet from Brooklyn, NY that evolved out of the need to experiment and expand the conventional limitations of music. They explore many genres ranging from free jazz, to hardcore techno, to trance Middle-Eastern vibes. The improvisational element of the band as well as their complete lack of fear of being in the moment is what gives MUN their unique raw sound. Mentioned in the Old Testament as the miraculous cloud following the wandering tribe through the desert, MUN descends from the heavens and can become anything you desire!
Bringing you the FRESHEST beats in the NORTHEAST
