Biography
"Their music will take you out of this world with their eccentric style and unique beats. With jams ranging anywhere from spacey, funky, and jamtronica, they appeal to any ear in any kind of musical situation. Drums, two guitars, a bassist, keys, and some vocals these boys are bringing the heat and sending you to outer space with helmets and dancing shoes on. The Fat Catz (with a Z) might be a newer band on the rise, but they play as if they have been together for years. Look for them at upcoming shows and festivals within the new year. They are sure to show you a stellar time."- Elisha Gud, Appalachian Jamwich Magazine


"This is a band with drive and they aren't braking... They started up in Floyd, Virginia on New Years Eve 2014 and haven't looked back. Their new home is Burlington, North Carolina. They've got something to say here and we are willing to listen.
They describe themselves as having emotionally driven compositions, improvisation and progressive elements that bring forth lush layers of electric orgasm to create infectious and dance-frenzied atmospheres that are blissfully enigmatic. Seems legit, but they don't give themselves enough credit for simply being an incredibly tight group of musicians. Take your favorite modern pop from Brooklyn with a pinch of Canada and eighties Europe, stir in New Orleans funk to taste, and whip it all together with rave energy and you end up with a really amazing jam. They're extremely contagious." - Kirk, Owner and Talent Buyer for The Kraken

Biography
From the depths of rock n’ roll, funk and dance music Hell comes Disco Risqué. Formed in early 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia, guitarist Charlie Murchie, drummer Robert Prescott and bassist John Bruner have spent their time together taking pieces of their souls, personalities and life experiences and manifesting them into notes and lyrics with one goal: To take over the world one sweaty, borderline psychotic music lover at a time. Since adding vocalist and trumpet player, Ryan Calonder, in early 2015 their music has taken on a warmth and soulful body that completes the sound they set out to achieve and a viciously captivating element to their live performances.
In the Fall of 2015 Disco Risqué released their debut self-titled double album recorded at The Sound Recording Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia. This ambitious release marks a milestone for the band and is, “The most important album to come out of Virginia in decades,” according to band manager Steve Lanza. The record pulls from influences all over the musical spectrum ranging from heavy metal riffs to espionage surfer tunes, catchy lyrical hooks, funky breaks and everything in-between.
