Devo Spice
Devo Spice is a comedy-rapper from New Jersey who has been called "the red-headed stepson of Weird Al Yankovic and Eminem." His demented brand of hip hop has made him one of the most popular artists on the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show. Devo Spice founded the comedy rap group Sudden Death whose songs "Cellular Degeneration", "Getting Old Sucks" and "Pillagers" were the numbers 1, 2, and 4 most requested songs on Dr. Demento in 2007, and Devo has had several hit songs since.

Devo Spice performs regularly across the country at music clubs, comedy clubs, and science fiction conventions. He has shared the stage with Dr. Demento, MC Lars, MC Frontalot, Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm, and many others. The live show features videos and animations synchronized with the music resulting in a hilarious show that goes over very well with a variety of audiences.

Devo Spice has released several albums including "Gnome Sane," (2011), "Herp Derp Ya Don't Sterp" (2014), and a Doctor Who concept album titled "I Am The Doctor" (2014) which features cameos by several actors from the original run of Doctor Who.

Devo Spice is a Core member of The Funny Music Project, or The FuMP (http://www.thefump.com) which releases 2 new comedy songs every week. He continues to release new songs there as they are completed.

News, streaming music, and tour dates can be found at Devo Spice's web site http://www.devospice.com. His releases are also available at http://devospice.bandcamp.com.

A Heavy Metal Fun-House ride through a Comic Book Hell.
Created to put the Spectacle back in Rock, Demon Boy and his Band have quickly become a crowd pleasing favorite at any and all shows and events around the World. Demon Boy himself has been described as Alice Cooper with a David Lee Roth attitude. Their defining music has set them far apart from the mainstream genre's that seem to all sound alike, in Demon Boy's case this isn't so.. their indescribable High Energy brand of Rock-Metal-Horror-Goth and yes even some hip hop has been winning over audiences around the world. The Live show is something of Fantasy, Fun and Metal Mayhem with theatrics defining each story to the songs they perform as their show takes you on a Halloween Trick r Treat ride seamlessly blending Metal Headbanging, Broadway Theater acting and comedy all in one Amazing live performance that does not falter from start to epic finish. With Rocking Songs Like "Ravenous" and "I Kissed a Dead Girl" along with with fan favorite hit songs like "Little Red Riding Bitch" and "This Halloween" this is a show you cant miss and will never forget once you have experienced it.

Charity Auction
Every year, I-CON holds a charity auction and other fundraising endeavors to help support a local charity in line with a cause I-CON holds dear. In the last few years, we have lost a number of members, programming participants, and guests to Cancer, so this year we are proud to be donating the proceeds from the charity auction to “Hope & Heroes,” a charity that funds the life-saving work on childhood cancer and blood disorders at Columbia University Medical Center. We hope that the proceeds help these real life heroes continue their important work.
