LeakyCon Welcomes Four New Musical Guests!

It’s time for a little cross-fandom special guestery at LeakyCon! In addition to expanding the rock lineup and general programming, LeakyCon will be bringing in some people you know from other fandoms – starting with one that is just as beloved as our boy Harry.

Please welcome four faces you may know from a certain musical hit show: Dominic BarnesRiker LynchTitus Makin Jr., and Curt Mega!

Dominic, Riker, Titus and Curt will appear in the Opening Ceremony as well as surprise areas around the conference. They will have a signing session as well!

Welcome, guys!

Dominic Barnes has been gracing your living rooms for only a mere 2 years but has loved every single second of it and is so honored that you (the fans) have brought him to where he is today! He has been on such shows as “Greek”, and had an extremely brief stint on ABC’s “Suburgatory”. You probably know him best as that sassy dancin’ fool, Warbler Trent on FOX’s hit TV show “Glee”! He is so grateful that LeakyCon has invited him and his Warblin’ brothers to join you all this weekend, and he can’t wait to meet all of you! Have a great time and don’t be afraid to come up and say a quick “hello!”
