Thank You for a Wonderful Event!

FuMPFest 2017 was an amazing weekend. How amazing, you ask? It was so amazing that it happened a week and a half ago and I'm just now settling down enough to post this update! It was so amazing that Tim Cavanagh couldn't stay away and showed up just to say hi. In fact, it was so amazing that, if you can believe it, we made it through the entire weekend without anyone uttering the phrase "God hates comedy musicians!"

The concerts were fantastic, without exception. Newcomers Tom Tuerff and the Reformed Whores left with many new fans and Lauren Mayer completely blew the lid off the place during the FuMP Showcase. A personal highlight for me was getting to perform "Boot to the Head" live on stage with Peter Wildman. That was incredible.

This year we did something new and stupid, but it seemed to go over well so I guess we'll keep doing it: FuMPFest Bingo! We had free bingo cards for people to play along with all weekend, and as things happened players would cross them off the list. The squares included things like "Chris says 'TILE!'," "Luke plugs something," "Shoebox says 'nipples'," "Shut up, Ian!" and other things like that which are staples of our gatherings.

And here are the winners of this year's video contest:
First place: "USF'n A" by Baldbox; video by "Eclectic Lee" Seitz
Second place: "Four Things You Need to Know" by TV's Kyle; video by Mad Mike Beucler
Third place: "Smells Like Herb Alpbert" by Power Salad; video by Dr. Don

Congratulations, everyone!

We have already begun planning for 2018 so keep an eye on this web site for updates. In the mean time a big huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended, or helped plan or run FuMPFest. We couldn't have done it without you!
