Wandering Hands is a time travelling family band that, after an extensive tour of the middle ages, has branched out to perform pieces less than a century old, including thematically appropriate vintage jazz and classic rock numbers along with a few originals. Leith and Kaeli have been playing for SCA, pagan, and Folklife audiences since 1990. Shayla and Tully are the result of procreation for musical purposes, and have been making music since they were five. Leith has led the vocal technique workshops at Norwescon for the last two years.
Celt Check! is a dynamic Celtic quartet providing ‘full frontal harmonies.’ Regular performers at the Seattle Scottish Highland Games, Gareth Davis (6/12-string guitars and vocals), Darcy Davis (recorder and vocals), Ari Stolar (bodhran), and Finn McFaire (12-string guitar, whistles, and vocals) combine their extensive talents to give you more than just music. Sweet and gentle to rollickin’ and raucous, Celt Check! does it all!
Jackson’s Oddities is the dark, but humorous brainchild of singer/songwriter Seth Jackson. Despite the creepy topics, Seth is focused on positivity and creativity. In his constantly updated YouTube vlog, Seth not only shares music, but the challenges of becoming a full-time creative person. If you like black comedy, sit back and let Jackson’s Oddities take you on an adventure. Afterwards, chat with him and get on his vlog!
Rapper, producer, and trombonist Ryan “Kadesh Flow” Davis has been performing since his early teens, sharing the stage with artists such as B.o.B, Caroline Shines, The Revivalists, Mega Ran, and MC Frontalot. While Desh rocked sets at events like PAX Prime, Anime Los Angeles, Norwescon, and Fan Expo Dallas in 2015, he has also continued to grow his grassroots base by performing at numerous music venues throughout the Midwest, West Coast, and Southeast. His music has been lauded by journalism outlets Kotaku, IGN, and Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes, among others, and he’s scored and engineered sounds for Toonami Asia and various independent film and documentary projects. Kadesh Flow lives for impacting audiences at both an aesthetic and personal level with his honest, heartfelt lyrics, gripping instrumentals, and engaging live performances.
Jonny Nero Action Hero
Jonny has been performing music for close to 15 years now, writing for near a decade of that. But it wasn’t until recently that he discovered the chiptunes movement. After a chance encounter with the Protomen, introduction to Anamanaguchi, and a lucky catch of a street performance of Lo-Tek Resistance, he was reintroduced to the sounds that the old gaming machines that he grew up with.
With that faithful year, he picked up his fist copy of LSDJ and began to experiment. Crafting songs whenever he could and integrating the sounds of his childhood into the music of his manhood.
