Since forming in October of 2004, Disco Organica (or, DO for short) has gigged relentlessly at home in Eugene, Oregon and on the North and Southwest tour circuits.
DO plays positive music drawing from a range of influences - a fusion of trip-hop, jazz, funk, soul, blues, drum'n'bass, and R&B. Always up for exploring grooves and improvising, DO's tunes meld genres and span styles from mellow, down-tempo jazz numbers to energetic schizo-funk, that is sometimes aggressive and always danceable.
DO's "something for everyone" approach makes use of the smoky, alluring vocals of singer Erin Flood, and the soulful, sexy, falsetto of guitar-player Brad Erichsen, set to a backdrop of blues, jazz and R&B arrangements.
At the end of the night, sophisticated music lovers and dance-hungry partygoers have all found something to love about Disco Organica. We hope you will too.

"This is an album any party thrower, long distance driver or bathtub music listener should have in their collection. It starts off smooth and unassuming and builds into a coolly controlled explosion of funky drum and bass beats layered with improvisational guitar, flute and keyboards that push the boundaries without getting overly spacey or unstructured. The CD can provide transformitive personal listening moments or inelligent background jazz for your coolest friends. Live or recorded, Disco Organica exceeds the expectations of any audience craving a modern twist on the history of groove."
