Disco Risqué is Charlie Murchie (Lead Guitar), Robert “Slim” Prescott (Drums/Vocals), Ryan “Swimsuit” Calonder (Vocals/Trumpet/Rhythm Guitar, Andrew “The Champ” Hollifield (Bass), and Sean Hodge (Keys/Vocals).  Founded in 2014 in Charlottesville, Va the band’s early intentions involved writing music that was both brutal and catchy, aggressive but melodic, heavy yet danceable.  With the addition of Sean on keys in the Fall of 2020 the band’s sound inherited a new fullness and warmth that allowed for bigger arrangements.



In February of 2021 the band released an EP titled D3P that brings forth a new engagement with fans of pop music.  Recorded in Charlottesville at The Sound, mixed in Richmond, VA by Ricky Olson, and mastered by Fred Kevorkian, the EP has three songs (Drawing Blood pt. 2, The Scene, Pre Fluff Party Fyfe) that highlight the rock, funk, and pop side of the band’s songwriting.  “You can just hear the band has matured every time we come out of the studio,” says lead guitar player Charlie Murchie.


Looking forward, fans can anticipate more new music coming from the band before the summer that takes a more progressive and heavy route.  Expect to see Disco Risqué back out playing live regularly as the world reopens for business.
