Dan Coglan, a.k.a. “Samurai Dan” and his wife, Jillian are the acknowledged masters of marital… er, MARTIAL mayhem.  This dynamic duo travels the civilized portions of the U.S., bringing their unique show to curious and horrified audiences alike.

In addition to their high-energy, mostly safe stage shows (where razor sharp blades and barbs fly) the couple teaches historical and hysterical panels on the way of the warrior.  Offering a wide range of lectures and interactive workshops, Dan and his lethal love Jillian are guaranteed to provide con attendees fun and fulfillment.
Due to a supreme lack of filter, Dan also performs standup comedy, and lives to embarrass his wife onstage, in censored and uncensored settings.
A storyteller at heart, Dan is finishing his third horror novel, and offers insights into the creative process with panels for the aspiring writer as well.

2UNE (Tune) is an American-Japanese Jpop Idol Group based in New York.
Uno w​​as known in the Akihabara scene in Japan as one of @home Maid Cafe's top members during her time in the cafe. With her sweet voice, and cute personality, she embodies what it means to be a Japanese idol.


Sneko, started off as a Youtube coverist at 12 where she became known for her versatile voice and singing impersonations of Japanese anime characters. She began performing at live venues when she was 14, singing and dancing to her favorite Jpop songs. Eventually, her passion for J-pop led to a performance in Japan where the fateful meeting between Uno and Sneko took place.


Fueled by a mutual interest to bring Japanese pop music to the US, 2une combines traditional Japanese pop music and idol aesthetics with electronic and dance music. Similarly, Uno's sweet vocals and Sneko's characteristic voice merge to create a wonderful harmony and a 2une that you'll never forget!
