Apocalyptica

Rock, Classical, Metal
Since 1996 and the release of their debut album, "Apocalyptica Plays Metallica by Four Cellos," Apocalyptica -- graduates of the prestigious Sibelius Academy in Finland -- have been developing a style that is tough to put a name to... 'Heavy Cello Mayhem'? 'Rock'n' Resin'?! ... The possibilities are vast, but whatever the latest tag, the fact remains that never before had a group of classically-trained cellists, metal fans to a man, attempted to fuse together the seemingly disparate worlds of classical music & hard rock ...of Prokofiev & Pantera ... Shostakovich & Slayer ... to seek out the middle ground between the mosh pit & the orchestra pit, the dinner jacket & the denim jacket, whilst being 100 percent respectful to both camps.

Chris D'Elia

Stand Up Comedy
D'Elia was 16 the first time he performed stand-up comedy. He would act up in church, so the pastor told him he could do some time on stage afterwards if he behaved himself. Well, he didn't behave, but he was allowed on stage anyway. D’Elia often sells out on tour. He went on to spend three seasons as Danny on one NBC comedy series ("Undateable") and star opposite Whitney Cummings on another ("Whitney"). He's also had his own Netflix special ("Incorrigible") and been seen quite a bit on Comedy Central: the 2015 celebrity roast of Justin Bieber, his special "White Male, Black Comic," and "Workaholics."
