More information about the Funny Music Project’s own convention FuMPFest has gone up. So you can now start make plans.
First, they have figured out a date and a location for the weekend. It will be at the Westin Northshore in Wheeling, Illinois on June 20-22, 2014. The group rate for the hotel is $109 a night, mention “FuMPFest” for the rate.
Second the Guest of Honor for the event has been announced. It is the one and only Dr. Demento, hows of the Dr. Demento Show which has inspired many a comedy musician and helped to make the careers of several of them, including Weird Al Yankovic. His show has been around since 1970 broadcasting the funniest, weirdest, most demented music around, first as a radio DJ and now online. During the weekend he will be giving presentations, playing funny music, signing autograph, and any other silly things he can think of.
Register for the con is $35 for the entire weekend; registration at the door will be $45.
This will be a great chance to spend a weekend listening, learning about, talking about, and surrounding yourself with some of the best comedy musicians out there.
