Mikey Mason (a nationally touring standup comedian by trade) made a splash on YouTube with the video for his song, “She Don't Like Firefly,” which spurred the recording of his crowd-funded geek rock/comedy albums, “Impotent Nerd Rage” and “Barbarian Jetpack,” his third geek album, “Dangerous Gifts,” and an EP of non-comedic songs inspired by Neil Gaiman's novel American Gods. His fourth album, “dodecahedron,” includes songs featured in the live-action Knights of the Dinner Table web series. His fifth album, "Red Letters" was recently released. Mikey's work has been featured on DrDemento.com, Nerdist.com, MTV Geek News, SyFy's Blastr.com, and in Time Magazine's Techland, and he is a member of The Funny Music Project (theFuMP.com). He has made multiple appearances both on NBC and at the legendary House Of Blues, headlined on all four coasts and performed at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, Geek Media Expo, Browncoat Ball, and RPG conventions across the US. He is also a proud media sponsor of Can't Stop The Serenity, a fundraiser for Equality Now, and performs at at least one CSTS each year. Learn more at mikeymason.com.

Cats. Irish music. Drinking songs. Nowhere else but from the bright imagination of Marc Gunn would those three elements be so neatly integrated. Yet Gunn, sometimes called “the hardest working man in Celtic music” around his hometown in Austin, is an accomplished musician and entrepreneur who not long ago headlined at the Oscar party for Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. For Gunn, it started small, though not inauspiciously, wearing a kilt on campus at the University of Texas. As the autoharp-playing half of the Brobdingnagian Bards, Gunn and partner Andrew McKee developed a loyal following with weekly performances on campus. This quickly led to gigs at renaissance fairs, science fiction conventions, and Celtic music festivals as well as parties and weddings for the pair. With the Bards’ calendar busy, Gunn began producing the duo’s recordings. Their first effort in 1999 was Marked By Great Size followed by Gullible's Travels in 2000. The third release was 2001’s instrumental Songs of the Muse, then two theme CDs A Faire To Remember and A Celtic Renaissance Wedding. 2002 saw the release of Songs of Ireland and in 2003, Memories of Middle Earth. A long-awaited solo album, Soul of a Harper, brought Gunn accolades in 2004; he then embarked on work for Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers.
