2017 Geek Gala Special Guests Announced!

We are so excited to announce our special guests for the 2017 Geek Gala: Geekzilla, The King of the Carolinas!

Rich Sigfrit will be serving as this year’s Master of Ceremonies. This will be Rich’s third year at the Geek Gala – for the past two years he’s helped us with the mini-auction and been the host of our after hours burlesque show.  This year, Rich has graciously agreed to emcee the entire Gala for us, and we are thrilled to have him take on that role.

Mikey Mason is returning as our Musical Guest of Honor. Mikey has been with us for six Galas now and last year had his son Jack join him on stage.  In addition to being an amazing musical showman, Mikey is a talented artist and will be featuring his work again this year at the Artist Wallway.

Madison Metricula is excited to be our Musical Special Guest for the first time.  Madison joined us last year as part of the after-hours burlesque show, and after seeing her musical skills on display, we immediately invited her to return this year as a featured performer.

Davey Beauchamp attended his first Geek Gala as one of our Geeks Got Talent! Contest judges. He returned last year to run our Trivia Contest and curate our Artist Wallway, and we are so happy to have him return again.
