London has Fallen

London has Fallen is an Alternative Duo from Central Illinois comprised only of founding members Alecia Gates and Cameron Gorham. The duo is known for their uncanny ability to change the atmosphere in a room to match the intensity and raw emotion behind their music. With their latest release (Fracture) the band offered a 12 song tour-de-force featuring 10 songs and two remixes to give fans a taste of what’s to come. Formed in 2013 by a chance meeting, London has Fallen will be around as long as they have something to say.

Greg "Greggo" Wicker

Greg Wicker (or “Greggo” as he’s fondly known) has been producing and hosting game shows at anime conventions since 1999, when he premiered Anime Match Game at Project A-Kon in Dallas. Since then, Greggo has done anime-themed versions of several classic game shows, created a few games of his own, and even had an original project that very nearly turned into an actual television show on Anime Network. These days Greggo is concentrating on perfecting his craft and making game shows available for conventions everywhere, bringing his rapier wit and friendly personality with him wherever he goes. You can see some of Greggo’s past game show efforts on his YouTube page at http://www.youtube.com/gregdasgo or visit his website at http://www.facebook.com/greggosgameshows.

For over 4 decades, John Stocker has been a recognized force in the acting industry. He began his career as an on-camera performer, working with the likes of John Candy, Dan Aykroyd, Rick Moranis, Gilda Radner, William Shatner and Mark Wahlberg, before settling solely, but comfortably into the off-camera world, where he has voiced many thousands of commercials and hundreds of animated characters.

Over the years, John diversified his career to include voice casting, voice coaching, (both commercial & animation), demo production, and the discipline that keeps him busiest, voice directing. He’s been at the helm for many dozens of productions, including Totally Spies, Caillou, Fugget About It, Redakai, Mike the Knight, (the original) Beyblade, Medabots, Ella the Elephant and of course, the one that started his voice directing career, the one and only ‘Sailor Moon’.
