Orchard Lounge
Orchard Lounge
If you can move, Orchard Lounge will back you up.

Formed in Chicago in 2001, OL began as the triad of Spencer Lokken, Bethany Lokken and Ben Silver. Currently the collective operates as a duo, of solely Spencer & Bethany Lokken. This highly versatile couple has enlightened dance floors from Mexico to Maine with their eclectic mixes, from sunset chill-out to bass-dropping e-funk, and an array of other futuristic sounds. Theirs is a democratic mission: to expose as many people as possible to the artists they admire and respect. What sets Orchard Lounge apart from other club DJs is that you won't always find them in the club. In recent years they've built a reputation as a relentless festival and touring act, often performing live shows with visual artists. Not to dismiss their roots, they've played alongside heavyweights like John Talabot, Matthew Dear, Gigamesh, Aeroplane, Bonobo, DJ Krush, Lindstrom, DJ T, Jamie Jones, Booka Shade, Metro Area, and Maya Jane Coles. They've also had the rare pleasure of performing for thousands at world famous venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheater, The Hammerstein Ballroom, and Pritzger Pavillion at Millennium Park.

When they're not in the DJ booth, you'll find this musically obsessed tried in the studio. Putting decades worth of musical training and education to good use, OL's first EP will be dropping in late 2013. Always looking to experiment with different sounds and studio techniques, what the fans can expect is a unique amalgamation of sounds, from heady ambient sleepers to four on the floor dance floor destroyers. Despite their affinity for live music, OL's focus hasn't shifted since the group's inception over a decade ago: to provide sophisticated and stylish DJ sets that are appropriate in a variety of settings…

From the dance floor to the couch.
Dr. Fameus
Dr. Fameus
Dr Fameus is an electronic/drum-based music project created by the incredible Disco Biscuits drummer Allen Aucoin. Aucoin explores many different musical 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, included writing and teaching for award winning percussion ensembles. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Aucoin was given the nickname Dr. Fameus, for being late all the time, and it has stuck ever since. After moving back to the southeast, Aucoin continued teaching while touring with the band Skydog Gypsy. In 2005, after winning a drum-off competition led by the band, Aucoin officially joined up with the Philadelphia-based electronic jam band, 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.

The level headed, but talented drummer/producer features surprise guests on keyboards and bass, while taking care of DJing and drumming all on his own. If you love forward-thinking improvisational dance music, do not miss this show.
