Dr3amLand has been scouring the nerdy music scene for almost two years. Since 2011 they have evolved in style and stage presence. Tyler “Dr. 3am” Yount and Zach “ZaKK” Cobble bring comedy and intensity to the stage. They have shared the stage with acts such as My Parents Favorite Music, Professor Shyguy, and Sci-Fried. They blend blues, rap, and chiptunes to create a combination all their own. They are currently working on their first full length album.
Trixie J. Valentine is a Cosplayer and Gamer. She has been an Anime and Gaming fan since she was 8 years old and has been attending Conventions as Cosplayer for 7 years. Like many Cosplay guests, she began as an attendee and everything grew from there. Her cosplay got her noticed by Anime Company Gaijin USA, Inc and she was hired to head the Gaijin USA STAR GIRLS, booth girls that do photoshoot and promo advertisements for Anime merchandise. She has gone on to run panels as a Cosplay guest at various Anime Conventions. As a certified stylist and avid gamer, she provides a variety of panels from cosplay panels like wig styling, and make-up to her gamer favorite Resident Evil panels. She has been a cosplay guest judge for conventions like Animeland & Anime Karnival. She recently scored the honor of being Convention Chairman for Sukoshi Con in her home state of Alabama. She also operates her own wig styling and accessories business Lovely Lockpicks Couture. Trixie plans on attending more conventions as a guest to operate panels and judge contests and also loves to provide panels via webcam for smaller conventions.
My Parents Favorite Music has created music since 2000 and has released 4 albums independently, with topics that span the spectrum of nerd and hip-hop culture. With subjects ranging from Kool-Aid and coffee, to robots and Otaku, all backed by familiar video game soundtracks, MPFM strives to deliver a unique experience in which the audience will never forget. MC and Steffo bring a spectacular amount of energy with live drumming, clever wordplay, and a stage presence ensuring every audience member will feel like part of the show.
MPFM has performed shows with nerdy and video-game-music based acts such as: mc chris, The OneUps, Peelander-Z, MC Frontalot, Random aka Mega Ran, MC Lars, The Protomen, ANAMANAGUCHI, brentalfloss, as well as appeared in the 2008 Nerdcore hip hop documentary “Nerdcore For Life” directed by Dan Lamoureux.
Professor Shyguy’s music can be best described as; high energy, chiptune-electro-rocking, 8-bit, epically vocalized, highly danceable, theatrical nerd-pop. Singing 50% about video games and the other 50% is anything from Space/Time to English Language gymnastics. His performance consists of singing, playing guitar, keyboards, and drums, sometimes three of those things at the same time. Since the first album he has shared the stage with The Protomen, Peelander Z, Ellen McLain (aka the voice of GLaDOS), Samantha Newark (The voice of Jem of ‘and the Holograms’), and more. Just recently released second album with guest stars such as Kyle Hebert (The Narrator of Dragon Ball Z), Amanda Lepre (of Descendants of Erdrick), and Duane & BrandO he is back to touring the U.S.!
