This month’s Small Studio Session performers are known as Unicorn Derby — a whimsical name that reflects both the music and the unusual way this band got together. They became a band by luck, after their names were literally drawn out of a hat at an event called the Random Band Challenge.

This piece includes samples from the studio session. Afterward, WFYI’s Jill Ditmire interviewed members Joe O'Brien, Caleb Spicer, Grant McClintock and Kevin Hood about their origin and their music. 

You can find the entire Small Studio Session from Unicorn Derby on our Small Studio page. And the band is looking forward to their summer shows, including halftime at Naptown Roller Derby in June.

Small Studio is made possible by a grant from The Herbert Simon Family Foundation, and with support from Neat O Art Shop and Sun King Brewery.
