They will be interviewed through out the show and will play some tracks from their CD’s. This is a pre-recorded show as they were here for E3 only and had to get back to Austin. They will come back someday to do a live performance. Cross your fingers!!
Descendants of Erdrick is a rock band dedicated to recreating classic video game music on real, sweaty instruments; from the well-known, time-honored tunes of Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda, to the epic arrangements of Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger, with a few obscure tunes in between. Established in 2009 by musicians who grew up with controllers in their hands, later replaced with m…usical instruments, the band’s mission is to convey through performance the excitement they feel for these quality songs.The name of the group is an homage to one of the first console RPG’s, Dragon Warrior (Dragon Quest in Japan), wherein the player is a “descendant” of the legendary hero, Erdrick. Descendants of Erdrick seek to captivate audiences of all levels through energetic and engaging performances of a style of music often heard but rarely performed.
