The Disco Committee
The most mild mannered of the group Tim is more of a behind the scenes kind of a guy and is the Disco’s go to guy for “Bus Maintenance”. Tims expertise came from his time as a stunt car driver on Smokey and the Bandit where he befriended Disco Member Frank Geier. When Tim isn’t dancing the night away he is practicing his Twister skills. Tim is part of a movement to get Twister added as an Olympic event. His dream is to get the first gold medal in Twister.
Alan burst onto the scene in 1976 while collaborating with Simon and Garfunkel in co-writing “50 ways to leave your lover”. Later attempts proved that he was not just a one hit wonder while ironically hitting again in a collaboration with Peaches and Herb titled “Reunited”. His connections in Hollywood landed him the role of the Scarecrow in the Wiz where he met co-creator of the Ugly Disco, Mike Donoghue. It would be years before they collaborated to start the disco but in the meantime Alan made ends meet by working as a Ziggy Stardust impersonator. Alan now makes his living as a Real Estate Broker and is easily recognized by his clever slogan “Got Wood?” Inside sources believe the slogan is a reference to a costume malfunction while playing the part of Stardust.
Chris has been with the Disco committee for over a decade now and he continues to dance the night away! Growing up in Fairport as a young boy he honed his musical talent at “Band Camp” his adventures were inspiration for a portion of the plotline in American Pie. His love of music drew him to the AV department in school which again served as comedic fodder for the movie “Revenge of the Nerds”, it is believed the character Booger is based on Chris’ real life. Being the subject matter of low budget films and expert in AV Chris took his BA in Education from Geneseo to Hollywood where he got his foot in the door as a fluffer on low budget adult films. Knowing the transition from adult to mainstream media was nearly impossible he abandoned his dream to be a boom operator and returned to Rochester and acquired The Stereo Shop which he expanded to a second store in the early 2000’s. It is believed that his motivation came from Vince Vaughns character, Bernard Campbell in the movie Old School. This movie not only motivated him in business but drove him to enter a fraternity. Lacking any of the social skills to join any reputable group he reluctantly joined the Disco where he is become a valuable member of the team. If your stereo is weak then call The Geek!
Not much is known about Logonegro other than the fact that he played the Part of Father Guido Sarducci on Saturday Night Live for several seasons. Many believe that his role is not just a character but he may actually have been a priest but left the priesthood to marry his wife Zena (no, not the warrior princess). “Little Al” as he is often called is a founding member of the Disco and a member of Ten Ugly Men for obvious reasons. Clearly the brains of Disco, Little Al keeps the rest of the members from getting into trouble.
Hailing from Syracuse NY and going by the nickname “Dago”, Dave started his show biz career as an exotic dancer, billed as “Mini Me” his career was “short” lived. unlike many members of the adult entertainment community he made the transition to mainstream in the made for TV movie the “Mary Kay Letourneau Story”. Dave played the part of Mary Kay’s love interest and the role left him typecast. As often happens life imitates art and Dave spends his free time as a wing man for other Ugly Disco member John Cook as a cougar hunter.
Like many of the members Frank has been successful in both music and screen. First with a successful solo song you may have heard called “Kung Foo Fighting”. Frank was unable to duplicate his musical success and turned to movies to quench his creative thirst. Frank wrote and directed Smokey and the Bandit which was the second highest grossing film of 1977, coming in second to Star Wars. When asked about the inspiration for the movie Frank hinted that it may be based on a true story but details are vague at best. His next move was to the small screen where he was a creative consultant for “The Dukes of Hazard”. In addition to creative consultant he had a small reoccurring role as Cooter Davenport. Frank returned to Rochester to start a family and has been spotted at Daisy Dukes dressed in “Cooter Davenport” wardrobe. While a connection to Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke) has never been made many sources close to her believe that he broke off a long courtship after discovering her with James Best (Roscoe P Coltrane).
Kevin was the creative consultant for McDonalds in the early seventies when he created the character the Hamburglar. A brief stint in the late 80’s had Kevin going to hollywood for a small role in the movie Office Space. Locked into protracted legal dispute with McDonalds he cut ties with the restaurant chain in favor of a career in the office support business. Kevin briefly returned to hollywood as a creative consultant for the movie Death to Smoochy. The movie was panned by critics and audiences alike and most likely ends Kevins theatrical career but his love of Hamburgers continues.
After a reoccurring role on The Partridge Family producers decided there was room for only one heartthrob and cut john in favor of Danny Bonaduce. It was widely rummorred that the departure of Cook was a result of love triangle between Shirley Jones (Shirley Partridge) and Dave Madden (Reuben Kincaid). John returned from Hollywood to Rochester NY where he divides his time between various charity causes and cougar hunting. He and Danny remain close to this day.
Mike worked briefly in Hollywood as a choreographer on Saturday Night Fever and The Wiz after tumultuous life as an inventor and entrepreneur. His rise and fall were later chronicled in full length feature film starring Steve Martin in 1979 titled The Jerk. Reluctant to return to the scrutiny of tinsel town Mike settled in Rochester and quenches his theatrical appetite by judging The Miss Gay Rochester Pageant. For work Mike is the President of Regional mortgage banking firm and given the current state of the current mortgage market Hollywood has come calling to do a sequel; The Jerk II
