French Horn Rebellion are Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, two brothers born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. In 2007, younger brother Robert was playing French horn in orchestra, and decided to make hot beats instead. After telling the conductor that Mahler isn’t fun anymore he asked his bassoon-toting brother, David to join with him. And so it was, a French Horn Rebellion began. 

Since then, they boys have travelled the world with French horn slung over their back, playing with MGMT, Yelle, Cut Copy, and others along the way. 

Their debut album “The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion” is available now and can be bought from the band’s own On-line store here.

Hey Champ's roots can be traced outside of Chicago in nearby Rockford, where band members Saam Hagshenas (Vocals, Guitar) and Jonathan Marks (Vocals & Drums) discovered their love of music at a young age.  After schooling, the two reunite in Chicago under the Hey Champ moniker.  Incorporating influences from disco, house and indie rock, they made synth-heavy pop music, and were eventually discovered by Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco, who took them on tour and launched their careers as international artists.
