DemiCon 17: July 28-30, 2006

In just a few years the Music Room has become a DemiCon tradition. This year we are proud to present, in his very first Iowa appearance, the great Luke Ski. You may know him from his dozens of other convention performances all over the US, or you may know him as the most requested artist of the 21st century on the Dr Demento Show. Either way this is not a show to be missed. See Luke Ski saturday night on the main stage. See below for a list of confirmed acts for the music room with more to be announced soon.

During the last 3 years attendees have been enjoying the music track in DemiCon's programming. This year we will, once again, feature a mix of performances, jamming, circles, and panels. The performers are musicians who are also fans, so things are certain to be interesting. Currently, we are still accepting musicians who wish to perform.


If you wish to perform, please email us at so that we can start working out where to fit you in in the schedule.

  Confirmed musicians:
The great Luke Ski (Parody / Filk)
Flatland Ramblers (Celtic)
Orckes and Trolls (Madcap Folk)
Eric Coleman (Original Rock)


We are still considering ideas for music related panels. If you wish to propose an idea, feel free to let us know by emailing us at

Music Circles

Last year's music circles were a lot of fun. This year, we're going to it all over again with a folk circle structured as a standard 'pick, pass, or play' music circle. There will be no set leader, instead the control of the circle will pass around the circle, and each participant may choose to play a song, request a song from another circle member, or pass the choice on to the next person. As before, anyone is welcome to join in on a song. The choice passes from person to person, not the performance. If you have an instrument to bring to a circle, please do so, the more the better.

Prior to the convention, this was a form allowing you to contact the appropriate department head.
