Biography

The Discordian Society, formed in Oct 2001 by bassist/ frontman Davz "Not Here" Annarelli, is an eclectic combination of funk, jazz and rock. With influences that range from Frank Zappa to John Zorn, Jaco Pastorius to Primus, The Discordian Society has awed crowds across the country.

The Discordian Society's ability to take crowds on a musical roller coaster has started to become talked about among followers of all genres. Taking the elements of their influences to the extreme, The Discordian Society will play a hardcore intro, and with a stop, fall into the smoothest of jazz runs, easily teasing into a hard driven funk rhythm, the song progresses until everybody is on their feet and the groove has been established. The Discordian Society will trade licks with each other, and then, in the blink of an eye, they fall into a waltz, which soon gives way to the strangest rock opera you have ever heard. Before you know it 10 minutes have passed and you have heard 7 different styles of music played in only 1 or 2 songs. Beyond The Discordian Society's ability to play with mind-blowing tightness. The bands ability to jam is also well known. When not riding scale runs that thrill and inspire, The Discordian Society likes to fall into a pounding thump of a groove, giving their fans ample time to shake it out and get down before the next wave of rhythmically ridiculous changes that will take the song back to it's front end.
