Harry and the Potters are an indie rock band and pioneers of Wizard rock formed in Norwood, Massachusetts in 2002 by brothers Joe and Paul DeGeorge. The band was inspired by the J. K. Rowling book series Harry Potter. Harry and the Potters music is simple unpolished indie rock with the Harry Potter books inspiring the lyrics, usually from the point of view of the fictional protagonist, Harry Potter.
After Harry and the Potters founded the wizard rock genre, many similar bands that also took on the persona, or dressed as a Harry Potter-themed character — began to appear at Harry Potter fan conventions. The band prefers to play in libraries. Though most fans of the music are previous fans of Harry Potter, some bands have attracted listeners outside of the Harry Potter fanbase.
Since the band's formation in 2002, they have released three full-length studio albums, three major extended plays, one compilation album and appeared in a further three compilation albums. The Boston Phoenix has called Harry and the Potters the "Pink Floyd of Potterdom."
