DrFameus is an electronic music project created by the versatile drummer, Allen Aucoin. Allen explores many realms with DrFameus ranging from breakbeats to drum ‘n’ bass to dubstep to techno/house. It is his ability to survey the crowd and then improvise that has allowed Aucoin to play in such diverse projects over the years.
Allen began his musical career not onstage, but instead in education and composition. This included instructing and writing for award winning percussion ensembles and teaching drum lessons. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts Allen was given the nickname DrFameus and it has stuck ever since. Like so many of us, college was not exactly a punctual time for Allen. He became known as the guy that was famously late all the time; so much that a friend gave him the honorary doctorate, DrFameus.
After moving back to the southeast from Boston, Allen continued to work as a teacher and percussion instructor while touring with the band “Skydog Gyspy.” In 2005 Aucoin acquired his current role as the drummer for Philadelphia electronic act, the Disco Biscuits. Since winning the “drum off” held by the Biscuits in Atlantic City, Allen has played 450-500 shows with the quartet including shows at the Gorge Amphitheatre and Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Birthed from the loins of a St. Michael’s residence hall, four piece livetronica ensemble Cosmosis Jones has evolved from raging all improv house party sets to establishing a tangible presence in the Burlington jam community with a growing catalogue of original music to match. What has served to set the band apart from the seemingly never ending onslaught of up and coming jambands is their willingness to truly break free from formulaic live structure and draw real-time inspiration from feel and emotion alone. This spontaneous motive leads to textured musical peaks and valleys that would impossible to plan for, making for a unique and exciting live set time in and time out.
