Random Encounter

Orlando, Florida, USA

High energy video game inspired rock with an accordion.

Yes, you read that right.



Random Encounter. Video game rock with an accordion lead. What does that mean? That means you're going to get punched in the face by nostalgia. Random Encounter plays music from, about, and inspired by video games and general nerd culture.

Drawing from their love of video games, Random Encounter writes and performs a diverse array of original music with strong tie ins to games like The Legend of Zelda, Demons Souls, Dead Space, Final Fantasy, and Metroid. In addition to video game covers, inspired originals, and originals based on Russian folklore they are known to mash seemingly unlike songs together like the Ballad of the Three Doctors (Doctor Who, Back to the future, Jurassic Park), and Purple Angel (Purple Haze, One Winged Angel).

Random Encounter has been featured on Badassoftheweek.com, TED: Ideas Worth Sharing, won Best Rock & Indie Band in Orlando as voted by readers of the Orlando Weekly, performed in practically every major city on the East Coast, led the March of a Thousand Zombies, and fought rival bands with instruments, boxing gloves, holy water, and longsword!
