Tommy Tallarico to Appear at MAGFest

MAGFest loves to bring out the best, brightest, and most colorful composers from the video game music scene, and Tommy Tallarico certainly fits that bill. It’s been five years since Tommy has attended a MAGFest event, so it’s a real treat to bring him back into the fray of the annual video game music mecca at MAGFest 12, coming January 2-5, 2014, in National Harbor, MD.

MAGFest is a four day long festival dedicated to the appreciation of video game music, gaming of all types, and the gaming community. The festival runs 24 hours a day, and offers consoles, arcades, tabletop, LAN, live video game cover bands, chiptunes, vendors, guest speakers, and much much more. MAGFest is run by MAGFest, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering the appreciation of games and video game music. MAGFest Inc.’s main method of achieving this goal is to create events which provide a means for people to enjoy games, as well as musical concerts.

Tommy Tallarico’s career spans over 20 years of hits including Earthworm Jim, Metroid Prime, Advent Rising, and many more. Tallarico is also the creator and producer of Video Games Live, the world’s premiere touring orchestral video game concert event. Since 2005, Video Games Live has toured in countries all over the world, boasting a repertoire of over 60 different games in a wide variety of styles.

The third album from Video Games Live is currently in its planning phases, but needs OUR HELP to make it a reality. Show your support by chipping in to the “Video Games Live: Level 3” Kickstarter. The Kickstarter ends on September 13th, so move quickly before it’s over!

Tallarico joins a host of other guests and bands at MAGFest 12, including Bastion composer Darren Korb, Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe, Swedish SID Metal group Machinae Supremacy, and Brazilian Video Game cover rockers MegaDriver.

That’s just a small sample of the dozens of guests, and almost 40 musical acts that’ll be performing at MAGFest. Be there, or be some form of polygonal shape that indicates that you are not there!
