Trocadero was made popular by making the soundtrack for Red Vs. Blue, an internet machinima comedy.
Trocadero is a band based in Cambridge, Massachusetts that consists of Nico Audy-Rowland, Martha Williams, Jeff Williams and Brandon Erdos. Other guest musicians include Philadelphia Telepants, Sandy Casey, Susan Hsia, and Karen Langlie. They are most famous for creating the theme to the popular machinima series Red vs Blue, "Blood Gulch Blues," as well as other music for the series such as "A Girl Named Tex". Music for one of Rooster Teeth's other series, The Strangerhood, including the theme song "Crazy Zoo," is being provided by Trocadero's Audy-Rowland in collaboration with Jeff Williams, forming a band called The Uggos.
The band is known for its diverse styles of music. Its signature element is the polyphonic blending of the voices of Nico and Wendy (now Nico and Martha). Instruments used by the band include drums, several kinds of keyboards, vocals, piano, violin, viola, guitars, and banjos. The song genres are even more diverse; the band's first CD includes tracks that are strongly influenced by the blues, disco, spirituals, western narrative, and many types of rock. In addition, one of the songs, "Oh Five!", is a brief Hawaiian intermission piece.
A second CD is currently in works and is set to be released in 2007. The song "Alien Champion", which plays during the end credits of the Red vs Blue season 3 DVD, will be included on the CD.
