This is a great evening for those wanting a more relaxed experience with all our guests.
We are super excited and very pleased to announce, that returning to Capital Sci fi Con Meal with the Stars 2020 are Blues Harvest.
Blues Harvest have built up a most impressive reputation as the go-to party band for geek events, having played their blend of Star Wars parodies and other classic movie songs in comic-cons, space centres and cantinas across the galaxy.
They have recently enjoyed several career highlights such as a performance at Disneyland Paris, and a special show with Ray Parker Jr who joined the band to perform his hit ‘Ghostbusters’. In 2019 the band were invited to perform at ‘A Night at Canto Bight’ – a multi-club event in Chicago as part of Star Wars Celebration. Blues Harvest entertained 3,000 Star Wars fans at the event with their renditions of Star Wars themes and other popular sci-fi movie songs.
Mark Hamill became a fan of the band in 2017 and declared one of their songs, Tatooine Sunset, as “Magnificent! The lyrics, performance and John Williams’ theme fade-out: PERFECTION.”
Fronted by comic book illustrator Nick Brokenshire (Star Wars Adventures / Dark Horse / 2000AD / IDW), Blues Harvest have built up their cult following through a diverse song selection from the world of Sci-Fi and Superhero movies and TV with a few guilty pleasures along the way. With set highlights including music from Star Wars, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Guardians of the Galaxy and many more, Blues Harvest is the perfect cantina band to celebrate the sci-fi, comics and fantasy genres.
The band can't wait to return to Capital Sci Fi con with their special acoustic show.
