KALAMAZOO—Music-driven comedy duo Dakaboom will perform on Western Michigan University's campus at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, in the Bernhard Center's North Ballroom.

The event is sponsored by the Campus Activities Board. Admission is $1 with a valid student Bronco Card, and $2 without.


Dakaboom, featuring Ben McClain and Paul Peglar, combines the musical genres of pop, hip-hop, opera, jazz, musical theatre, electronica and a cappella to modernize and reinvent the vaudeville art form.

Ben McLain was featured on the final season of NBC's "The Sing Off," and Paul Peglar was the original piano player on the first season of Fox’s "Glee." The duo is embarking on a six-month tour throughout the U.S., hosting the Los Angeles A Cappella Festival at USC and releasing their DVD "Live in Los Angeles."
