Musical Guests



Friday Night


Orckes & Trolles:

Orckes & Trolles (est.1992) is a high-energy vocal and instrumental music group that performs at Renaissance festivals. During the holiday season, they sing in Victorian garb as the Top Hat Carolers.


Venue D Open Mic

We're revamping what used to be Venue D into an open mic in the music room. Bring whatever talent you like for your time to shine.


Return of the Rocky Horror Picture Show Sing Along

Come participate in a filky sing along setting. At midnight of course.

This year it'll be even less of a "show" and more of a comunal experience. Note that the movie will not be shown, this is just a chance to get together and sing along with your friends to tunes many of us love.



Saturday Night


Beth Kinderman:

 Based in Minneapolis, Beth Kinderman & the Player Characters have been bringing their geeky, filk-influenced progressive rock music to sci-fi convention audiences across the Midwest since 2008. Beth's unique and complex original songs are inspired by everything from Star Wars to comic books to Battlestar Galactica to zombies to video games to fantasy novels and beyond. They have released three CDs so far, the most recent of which, "More Songs About Robots & Death," features a blend of original humorous material and cover songs. The band consists of Justin Hartley (percussion, accordion), Elizabeth Greenberg (vocals, keyboards, violin), Beth Kinderman (vocals, guitar), and Dave Stagner (guitar). They're thrilled to be back at DemiCon for the fourth year in a row to share their music. 

Cheshire Moon:

Cheshire Moon is the fanciful collaboration of trickster bird Lizzie Crowe and crazed magician Eric Coleman. What began as a simple joining of two talents in song circles, and occasionally during the mad-hatter antics of Eric Coleman on stage, whipped and frothed into the most likely of pairs. Eric’s love of punk, folk and prog rock gives them an eerie, otherworldly sound, while Lizzie brings the voice of that otherworld to life in chorus and verse.


Together they bring about a torrent that is as playful as it is lightly sinister, all wrapped up in a pretty little beribboned box. Do you dare to open it?


Bryan Baker:

Bryan Baker (aka Kaklick Martin in Second Life®) has been many kinds of geek in his life: Band and chorus geek, theatre geek, computer geek, D&D Geek, computer gamer geek, the list goes on. He’s published 4 solo albums and one single. The latest album “Yeah, I’m a Geek” makes use of all that geeky-ness and wraps most of his geekiest songs in one neat package. Zombies and werewolves and Second Life®, oh my!

Tre Critelli:

I have been playing and performing live music for more than thirty years. While my primary instrument is an acoustic guitar, depending upon the venue I may also perform on a kecapi (an Indonesian zither), a MillTone (a metal grove tongue drum) or harp guitar (guitar with 6 additional bass strings.) Over the years I have performed at various locations around the world, be it coffee shops in Japan, restaurants in Indonesia or the streets of London. Other than a couple of National Guitar Summer Workshops, however, I am essentially self-taught.

I have had the most musical success in live, online musical performance in the virtual world known as "Second Life." I have been the featured guest and musician on numerous podcasts, have been a musical guest on virtual world television shows such as "Tonite Live with Paisley Beebe," and was the first musical performer selected for the debut of's "Music and Arts on the Isle." In 2007, I was selected to be a live performer at the Second Live Community Convention in Chicago, Illinois, at which time I released my first collection of songs about live in a virtual world, "Tales from the Grid." A year later, my release party performance for my second collection of songs about Second Life, "The SL Man," was streamed to parcels of land located on more than 400 individual sims, or Second Life regions, making it the largest musical event ever held in a virtual world.

In 2010, I became the subject of a doctoral dissertation research study held by Dr. Deborah Wise at the University of Colorado at Denver. The study, “Life as Art: The Interplay of Identities Among Virtually Performing Musicians in Second Life,” focused on music performers who had successfully crafted virtual identities for live music performances.
