DrFameus (Allen Aucoin of the Disco Biscuits)
DrFameus (Allen Aucoin of the Disco Biscuits)
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.
Thrice Baked
The story goes a little like this: three local improv musicians got together to perform weekly gigs at a steak and seafood restaurant in hopes of pumping out fresh new jamz. Fueled by steak and twice baked potatoes, the trio began to hit its stride. As the weeks went by the word began to spread around town and a new project was born, Thrice Baked.

This group is a jazz-funk power trio focusing strongly on improvisation. Musically traveling to many diverse places while remaining locked into the strong groove driving them. Their strength is making music that is as enjoyable to listen to as it is to dance to. Truly a band you must experience for yourself.
