SCRATCH & BANG
SHOWCASING: JUN 12 – 8:30PM (Mainstage)
Introducing, Scratch & Bang; a dynamic and energetic live concept rocking venues, festivals and college campuses. Formed with the aim of creating a new type of act the duo have developed and refined their show into an explosive and energetic live experience.
On the Technics 1210’s is DJ Corleone, a renowned and respected turntablist in his own right. Playing opposite is Mike Bowers, a hard working and talented drummer with years of live experience
Together they de-construct, re-edit and remix massive dancefloor fillers live and on the fly in an uproarious stage show. While Corleone chops-up and scratches tracks the audience know and love Mike loops some insane live drum breaks over the top creating a wholly interactive show that not only sounds amazing but is visually stunning too.
A campus favorite, Scratch & Bang form the bridge between ‘live act’ and ‘dance party’ making them an excellent showcase choice.

Launched in the UK in 2007, Headphone Disco are the inventors and originators of the ‘silent dance party’ format and have been touring their show around the world for the past 7 years. In 2011 the company set up a US office and since then have performed 256 college shows leading to them being voted ‘Best Novelty Act’ 2013 by the readers of Campus Activities Magazine in March 2013.
Several notable North American festival performances have also solidified their reputation as one of the most unique acts around. Appearances at Firefly Festival, Insomniac’s ‘Escape From Wonderland’, Washington State Fair, the World Electronic Music Festival and the Rombello Festival at sea have been particular recent highlights.
So how does it work?
- We arrive at a venue with our 2 resident DJs and our 2 channel wireless headphones
- Our DJs spin 2 different styles of music side by side over 2 different wireless channels.
- Guests take a pair of our headphones, select which DJ they want to listen to using the switch on their headphones then get busy on the dancefloor.
Imagine a dancefloor where one half of the crowd are singing along to a Top 40 jam while the other half are raving to Skrillex! To a soundtrack that only they can hear! Bizarre, mind-blowing but most of all a huge amount of fun.
