Blibbering Humdingers - (Set time: 7:15 PM)
Blibbering Humdingers
These magical masters of musical hi-jinx and mayhem will wizard rock the tea towel right off your house elf! Their unique blend of 80s new wave, 50s do-wop, straight up pop rock and old-timey sing-songy comedy will leave you laughing and crying for more. They draw inspiration from the Harry Potter series, Dr Who, the SCA, medieval fantasy, science fiction and all kinds of delightfully, geeky fandomness.

Scott & Kirsten Vaughan began performing together in 1992 in the SCA, where they are known as Master Efenwealt Wystle and Maîtresse Aénor d’Anjou. With the release of ‘Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows’ in 2007, and upon encountering bands like Draco & the Malfoys, The Mudbloods, and The Moaning Myrtles they decided to form their own wizard rock act. They live in Cary, NC (under the name Sanderz) with two kids and a cat named Rosemerta. (That’s the cat’s name. It would just be silly to give both our kids the same name as the cat!)

They mostly perform at at Harry Potter, Filk and SciFi/Fantasy conventions along the east coast but also do libraries, bars and private parties. Some of the bigger shows they’ve played include Portus, ConCarolinas, LeakyCon, Infinitus, MarsCon, Ohio Valley Filk Festival, GA-Filk, Dragon*Con the Quidditch World Cup, the NYC Wizard Rock Festival, Wrockstock and LeakyCon London in 2013 (what a thrill!). Anybody want to bring them to Seattle? San Diego? LA? Germany perhaps?

When not out conquering the galaxy with her army of robotic wallabies, Kirsten creates steampunk/medieval/fantasy accessories for her online store, And in order to protect his secret past as a renegade architect, Scott pretends to manage communications campaigns for clinical research studies at a small advertising/creative services agency (Merge, LLC). Their pal Chuck who often plays bass with them claims to be a mild-mannered government IT contracts coordinator, but we suspect he’s really a super spy.
Muggle Snuggle - (Set time: 6:00 PM)
Muggle Snuggle
#MuggleSnuggle has Gryffindor courage and chivalry and Ravenclaw wit. This duo explains the wizard world through muggle eyes.
Hawthorn and Holly
Hawthorn and Holly
Hawthorn and Holly are a pop punk band that plays songs about Harry Potter. Started in 2007, these wizards hail from Charlotte, North Carolina. Leah Schroeder and Christie Mowery weave gorgeous harmonies with Eddie Mowery on guitars, while Dave Beaucar of Bristol, Connecticut slaps his amazing bass.

They have established themselves as a fixture in the wizard rock community, performing as featured artists at Misti-Con, Wrockstock, New York Wrock Festival, and Camp 9 3/4. More recently they have expanded their reach to other fandom conventions on the east coast such as Dragon Con, Stellar Con, ConCarolinas, Illogicon, and the Charlotte Geek Gala.

Their albums include “Jinxed in the Head”, “Our Friends Are Wizards,” and “Christmas Magic”, which are available for purchase on iTunes and Bandcamp. You can also hear their sweet tunes on Spotify! You might catch them playing songs about Doctor Who and The Hunger Games, in addition to other fandom songs. Don’t be surprised to find yourself dancing and singing along to their fun and infectious music, and falling in love with their ballads as well.

Hawthorn & Holly are the wands of Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter in the book, but in this band stands for the joining of light and dark to create music that appeals to the Slytherin in us all, but also shows that nothing is greater than the power of friendship!
