Project: Leviathan

Project: Leviathan is a post-apocalyptic, electronic rock act started in Nashville, TN.
by Cody Joe Bottoms in 2011. Drawing from such musical influences as Nine Inch

Nails, AFI, and 30 Second to Mars, Project: Leviathan creates a story of a dark,
and exciting, post-apocalyptic world. This story is based on a group of resistance
fighters fighting to save humanity from a group of Cybernetic Angels sent to
destroy The Earth.

Project: Leviathan’s live band is an ever changing line-up of skilled musicians with
close to 60 years of combined professional musical experience.

Bottoms has been creating, and producing music for close to 20 years. Bottoms
is also the drummer for the rock power-house, The Man Power and has been the
singer for such bands as Sacaea, and Little Plastic Ghost.

Greggo’s Game Shows

Greg Wicker (or “Greggo” as he’s fondly known) has been producing and hosting
game shows at anime conventions since 1999, when he premiered Anime Match
Game at Project A-Kon in Dallas. Since then, Greggo has done anime-themed
versions of several classic game shows, created a few games of his own, and even
had an original project that very nearly turned into an actual television show on
Anime Network. These days Greggo is concentrating on perfecting his craft and
making game shows available for conventions everywhere, bringing his rapier wit
and friendly personality with him wherever he goes. You can see some of Greggo’s
