The Blibbering Humdingers

blibbering humdingers Let us wizard-rock the tea-towel right off of your house elf! Our brand of neo-retro, post-nihilst, comedic nerdmuisk will serve you up a rollicking good time (what-what) and leave you hungry for more.

The Blibbering Humdingers consist primarily of Scott & Kirsten Vaughan in Cary, NC. We draw our inspiration from the Harry Potter series and the wizarding world created by J. K. Rowling. We're also into all kinds of other nerdy stuff like Dungeons & Dragons, Doctor Who, medieval history, steampunk, Star Wars, Lego, Ren Faires, SCA, etc.

We play everything from old-timey, to 50s do-wop, to 80s new-wave, to straight rock. We try to keep our music pretty light-hearted and fun, poking fun at characters or situations in he HP books and movies, or turning seemingly innocent situations into lewd ones.

Though we've been singing together since 1992, we got our start doing wizard rock in 2007. Whilst searching the web for Potter-filks, we discovered Draco & the Malfoys online and shortly thereafter attended a Harry & the Potters show at a local library. After the Deathly Hallows book release that summer, we decided to try our hands at writing some of our own songs. With the online release of "Voldemort Made Me Crap My Pants" the Humdingers were born.

We mostly perform at at various HP and SciFi/Fantasy conventions including Portus, ConCarolinas, LeakyCon, Infinitus, RavenCon, Dragon*Con

We regularly host wizard rock, filk, and nerdmusik shows in central North Carolina, often in their home in Cary and are heavily involved in the local fandom scene.

Performance Schedule:

Want to book us for a show? We mostly travel around the mid Atlantic (200-300 mile radius around Raleigh, NC). The best way to entice us to play your convention is to cover our travel & lodging, and offer a merch table for the weekend. We also do private events and parties. Email Scott directly for rates and availability.
