Creatively blending theatre arts with the wonders of scientific exploration, Doktor Kaboom keeps his crowds riveted with interest and rolling with laughter. Join him for a sidesplitting journey of increasingly spectacular, and often successful, experiments and demonstrations. Using masterful improvisational skills, the artist takes his audience on a sidesplitting tour of the modern scientific method while demonstrating spectacular applications of the physical sciences.
Doktor Kaboom is the creation of actor/comedian David Epley. David has been fortunate enough to discover two passions in his life. His first, science, took him to studies at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. His second, performing, became his career, and for 20 years David has made his living writing, performing, and directing original interactive comedy across the US and Canada. He now brings his passions together with an explosive style that refuses to allow his audiences time to catch a breath.

Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle, and Alan Bartram on bass with featured guests on guitar and vocals, is the latest incarnation of the most awarded band in the history of bluegrass – The Del McCoury Band. No other band today has the same credentials for playing traditional and progressive acoustic music. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie and Rob continue their father’s work – a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into people’s lives. Based in tradition the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful but they also bring something fresh and rejuvenating to the stage.
The band has a confidence that comes with having paid their dues with twenty years on the bluegrass road. They are known not only for their individual prowess on their instruments but also the tight rhythm, the soulful material and the confidence in taking bluegrass from the safety of the shore into uncharted waters. The Travelin’ McCourys are quickly becoming known amongst fans and musical icons alike collaborating with the likes of Vince Gill, The Allman Brothers, Phish, and Warren Haynes, Steve Earle, Dierks Bentley, Yonder Mountain String Band and MANY more!
“These guys are solidly grounded in bluegrass but not afraid to jump into the deep end and try something risky.” -Bluegrass Today
