Video game rock with an accordian 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, Out of This World, and Metroid. In addition to video game covers and inspired originals, 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) to make unique, fun experiences from familiar sounds.
Random Encounter has been featured on Badassoftheweek.com, TED: Ideas Worth Sharing, as well as being voted the Best Rock & Indie Band in Orlando by readers of the Orlando Weekly in 2012 and 2013. They've performed in practically every major city on the East Coast and Midwest, led the March of a Thousand Zombies, and fought rival bands with instruments, boxing gloves, holy water, and longsword! Random Encounter is surely not an act you'd want to miss.
