Wizards, prepare to rock once again.
This week, The Fandom Files is joined by Joe and Paul DeGeorge, the brother duo behind the wizard rock band Harry and the Potters. They began the group in 2004, while waiting for new Harry Potter books from J.K. Rowling, and 15 years later they are still making music. In fact, over a decade of playing their rotation Hogwarts-inspired hits, the duo has just released Lumos, their first album in 13 years.
The DeGeorge brothers spoke with us about the heady early days of couch surfing and waiting for new Potter books, how they built the genre, and why they decided to finally record and release a new album of originals. Plus, they discuss what they do when they're not wearing their robes and how their lives have changed since they were teenagers playing kids' birthday parties.
