When the Disco Biscuits formed at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia in 1995, they incorporated a distinctive blend of music, quickly attracting attention on a national level by supporting established musicians in the jam genre. In 2007, the band co-headlined the D.U.M.B. (Disco-Umphrey’s McGee-Biscuits) tour with Umphrey’s McGee. Band members have also collaborated in The Brain Damaged Eggmen, a Pink Floyd and Beatles cover band.
Since then, they’ve steadily cultivated a large fan base by bridging the gap between electronic music and jam bands. Today the band is selling over a quarter of a million tickets annually and has founded a successful summer music festival, Camp Bisco. Notable performances have included Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre and New York City's Nokia Theatre, where they have held five night residencies leading up and into New Year's Eve in both 2008 and 2009.
