**NEXUS GAMING ALLIANCE**
These are the guys who will be fueling your video game urges for the weekend! Our tournament schedule should be online shortly!
Initially launched into the gaming scene in 2010, Nexus Gaming Alliance (NGA) evolved themselves into a national gaming phenomenon in 2012. They attend more than 30 shows a year, and debuted a whole new focus in 2013, which is when they incorporated into a non-profit organization. The focus of the non-profit is to bring education through video gaming and social events around the country. Since then, Nexus Gaming Alliance (NGA) has put together more than 20 hours of programming and continues to create exciting content. In 2014 the group continued to tour nationwide, acquiring fans from all across the globe, while starting reviews of games, movies and restaurants.
Omega AV is a Central Florida-based production company specializing in event lighting & sound, as well as mobile DJ solutions (wedding receptions, company parties, school dances, etc.). New to the market but backed by professionals with over 30 years combined experience, they intend to blow the roof off of ShadoCon’s shows and raves.
**ARTIX VON KRIEGER**
World’s friendliest & craziest video game creator, Adam Bohn is the often silly and crazy CEO/Paladin of Artix Entertainment, LLC. Better known by his character name, “Artix,” he is also the creator of the popular Adventure Quest Worlds, DragonFable, MechQuest, AdventureQuest, BattleGems and many other Artix Entertainment Video Games. Adam is currently working on many new and exciting projects that he can’t wait to unleash onto the world. He lives by the motto “There are only two types of people in the world. Strive to be the third.” BATTLE ON!!!
By day he works in the INFOSEC field, by night he’s a mild mannered musically minded mad scientist bent on fusing the sounds of video game nostalgia back into the modern psyche! He has always had a history of performing and producing music – his DJ specialties lie in spinning everything from Industrial/EBM to Trance and all in between! Not only is DJ Neofaust a hard-hitting and talented performer, he will be working with OMEGA AV in being responsible for the loud noises, shiny lights, and epic effects in the main events room all weekend!
**DJ SHCRUFFY and DJ J. GUEVARA**
James Pullen and Jose Casalan
With a mix of EDM, old school hip hop, bass-heavy tracks, and more, these two DJs will create a party atmosphere that will leave you begging for more. Shcruffy got involved in music at a young age, playing in many local bands of all styles. His long-time love of bass quickly drew him to EDM, where he quickly established a catalog of subtle, bass-heavy tracks with the chilled vibe of an upscale lounge, meshed with the electronic aesthetics of modern dance-floors. J. Guevara started as a producer by trade but worked his way into the DJ world over the past couple of years. By taking the approach of changing the speed of golden age hip hop tracks, and mixing them with modern electronic dance music, J. Guevara makes the best of both worlds collide and compound in a chemical reaction of sound. Shcruffy and J. Guevara have been DJing together across the Bay Area for over two years.
