Group Disco Avaria was born in the "city of brides" Ivanovo. The team specializes in dance music with humorous lyrics. The founders of the group are Nikolay Timofeev and Alexey Ryzhov. Their creative career began with the organization of discos in clubs. After a while, the club "Avaria" was created, which later served as the source of the name. For several years, the cheerful duo hosted a program called "Disco Crash" on the radio "Europe plus Ivanovo". The program was devoted to the review of musical novelties. After that, former actor Oleg Zhukov joined Timofeev and Ryzhov, and then the fourth participant, Alexei Serov.
The group released their first album in 1997. Already in 1999 the songs "Disco Crash" were included in the collections "Soyuz". The group is becoming popular outside of its hometown.
