The Returners are a five-piece VGM (video game music) band based in Austin, Texas. Among their claims to fame are a flute-playing front-woman and a singing drummer. They breathe new life into songs from retro and modern video games in a live rock band setting, along with a few non-gaming favorites from cartoons, musical theater and more. They’re a little metal, a little symphonic, and a lot nerdy.
The Returners have rocked out with us on our main stage for #ONF2014 and they’re always performing at your other favorite large scale nerd music events around the country such as MAGfest, PAX Prime, and Classic Game Fest! The Returners are one of our favorite bands and we guarantee if you give them a listen you’ll soon be saying the same!
As for us we’ll be releasing more information as it becomes available with Chozo usually leaking it on our event or facebook pages, or if FUZE is feeling sneaky he’ll hide previously unreleased information on our FAQ page. We’re really excited to be coming back in any capacity as you folks have been asking us for an #ONF2017 for quite a while now. The wonderful people that have been donating to ONF on our Patreon have given us a new spark in terms of giving the shows a jump start, and the more that help us there the better the events we can pull off become. #TeamONF has always done these shows out of pocket or with whatever sponsorship and special deals we can make, so attendance and donations are the lifeblood of keeping these things happening. If you want to help support the Orlando Nerd Fest you can do so either directly here, or through our Patreon here.
The “likes” on our Facebook Page keep climbing towards that 5,000 milestone and we still have more announcements to make! Make sure that you RSVP on the ONF Mystery Event 2017 so you don’t miss any of them!
