Not your typical tango! Medusa's Disco is a very peculiar, high energy, psychedelic rock band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania that has been captivating audiences for 6 years. Within this time, the band has released three full length albums and two EPs. They have performed at multiple music festivals across the east coast ranging from Beardfest (NJ) to Warped Tour, and toured across the United States, all while leaving deep and memorable impressions in their wake. The band exists to cross over to the underworld with Rock n’ Roll; fusing together elements of psychedelic, surf, stoner, indie, progressive, punk rock and even some jazz nuances, Medusa's Disco merges classic and newer rock influences; everything from Led Zeppelin to Primus to Queens of the Stone Age.

Their live performances are a spectacle for the eyes and ears. In the forefront are the twin lead guitars and vocals of Hunter Root and Wynton Huddle, whose harmonies have an almost enchanting quality that hearkens back to the likes of Alice in Chains and Led Zeppelin. The band is known for their high energy

onstage antics, donning assortments of lipstick and devil horns, and intimate crowd interactions like entering the crowd to sing along and roll around on the turf while belting lyrics to their faces. The rhythm section is at full force with Justin Wohlfeil on Bass and Alex Aument on drums, passionately pounding out every note. The Medusa boys are expecting a new album with their current set up soon (Spring 2019).



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.
