DISCO RISQUÉ IS ENERGY! SCREAMING GUITARS, POUNDING DRUMS, THUMPING BASS, BLARING HORNS AND RAW VOCALS COME TOGETHER IN A CONTROLLED CHAOS THAT LEAVES LISTENERS ASTOUNDED AND HUNGRY FOR MORE. FORMED IN 2014 AND PERFORMING WITH THE CURRENT LINEUP SINCE MID 2015. DISCO RISQUÉ HAILS FROM CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA AND HAVE SPENT THE LAST YEAR DEVELOPING A SIGNATURE SOUND ATTRACTING A FIERCELY LOYAL FOLLOWING OF DEDICATED FANS. WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OF PLAYING LIVE THE GROUP DELIVERED THEIR EPONYMOUS DEBUT DOUBLE-ALBUM (AVAILABLE ON ITUNES, SPOTIFY, BANDCAMP, ETC.), PERFORMED WITH UP AND COMING GREATS SUCH AS TAUK, PIGEONS PLAYING PING PONG AND PEOPLES BLUES OF RICHMOND AND WERE CHOSEN TO BE 1 OF 4 VIRGINIA BANDS TO PERFORM AT LOCKN 2018. COMBINING ELEMENTS OF ROCK, FUNK, HIP-HOP, HARDCORE AND POP DISCO RISQUÉ TAKE THEIR LISTENERS TO PREVIOUSLY UNTRODDEN SONIC REALMS. WITH A GRUELING PRACTICE SCHEDULE AND A SEEMINGLY LIMITLESS DESIRE TO TAKE THEIR MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL DISCO RISQUÉ HAVE QUICKLY PROVEN THEMSELVES AS A FAST-RISING POWERHOUSE.

The Sweet Life is like a big, funky bowl of soup. They blend genres – mixing together different ingredients like Electronic-Rock with a little jammy salt and pepper, and a hint of spicy psychedelic, topped with a little dance party garnish (because it’s all about presentation) to serve to you, the perfect combination for the best ear pleasing, rump shaking, head banging, foot stomping bowl of soup that you’ve ever had.
