NATIONAL HARBOR, MD - February 12, 2014

Katsucon Entertainment, Inc. is proud to welcome their latest musical guest/ band "Trifecta" Ft. DJ Jesse James Felice & Violinist Johnny Benson. With Pioneer DJ Paul Oakenfold as his inspiration for trying new things, Jesse James Felice has been carving out his niche as a DJ and artist by working with ACTORS and Writers to create elaborate theatrical musical experiences that go beyond normal electronic dance music events. For the past couple of years Jesse James has been working with various ACTORS for his "Cinema sets", including Director/Actor Richard Epcar for Anime Mid Atlantic's "elecTRONic Mayhem" series which pays tribute to TRON and the "Electric Mayhem Band" from the Muppets. Christopher Macdonald, CEO & Publisher for Anime News Network called it "really awesome", Actor Travis Willingham stated "It's a very impressive production quality being put forward."

His work has also been reviewed by Author Robert V. Aldrich and Suzie Del Vecchio, a singer signed and touring with world renowned DJ Paul Oakenfold, in short she had this to say "Jesse's work is beautiful." In his review Author Robert V. Aldrich wrote "You know that one song you leave the club thinking about, that one song that has you saying 'man, who did THAT mix?'; that's Jesse James Felice. Each of his mixes is a unique experience, a vibrant reminder of the beauty of music that settles somewhere between what you're use to and what you like, and something totally new.” Jesse's work is a dialogue and an exploration that DJ and audience take together, perfectly set so that the music becomes a modem for a larger, grander experience. Any fan of music, regardless of their preferred genres, owes it to themselves to check him out. If you learn he's DJing a party or dance near you, you should definitely make sure to go check him out. For music that is as innovative as it is entrancing, you will find no one better.”

To commemorate Katsucon's 20th anniversary Jesse James is collaborating with Actress/ Disney XD Director Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, set to reprise her role as "The Major" from Ghost in the Shell. As a first for Trifecta, International Violinist Johnny Benson will also be lending his talents to this "Cinema set." While studying the University of Austria Johnny Benson performed with world renowned musicians, and in the concert halls of Graz, Vienna, Salzburg, Munich, and Oberzeiring. He has also performed with several symphony orchestras here in The United States. Trifecta will kick off Katsucon 20's half time masquerade show with a music story telling aberration entitled "The Major Meets The Doctor."

The Script: written specifically for Mary Elizabeth McGlynn by Jesse James Felice & Rob Lantz. The story takes place shortly after Major Motoko Kusinagi's "Individual Eleven" case, she has been specifically requested for a mission by the European military outfit known as "Unit." Little does she know what working with the unofficial member of "Unit" known as "The Doctor" will entail. This will perhaps be her most difficult mission…against a new breed of "Cybermen"
