7-7:40pm - Stemage
7:40-8:20pm - Ronin Op F
8:20-9pm - Nick Drexler

The alter ego of Cleveland-based pianist, Rob Kovacs, where he performs note-for-note piano arrangements of classic video game soundtracks from the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Kovacs' performances are unique in that they recreate early electronic music that was never intended to be performed by humans, stretching the limits of traditional piano playing. Kovacs has been performing as 88bit since 2018 and has played at events such as the Super MAGFest, PAX South, the Mensa National Gathering, NeoSonic Fest, Classic Game Fest, Confluence and others.

A composer and guitar guy based in Santa Cruz, CA. A lot of people know him as, "that Metroid Metal dude," but he also works on music for Steven Universe and the occasional Bubsy game. He has performed at MAGFest with Metroid Metal, Viking Guitar Live, LONELYROLLINGSTARS, Retro-Active Live, and Sam Mulligan & the Donut Slayers to name a few.

Ronin Op F
A multi-instrumentalist composer delving into various styles like chiptune, glitch hop, and funky breakbeat. His love of all things video game music (and other music!) has led to collaborations and shows with artists like Extent of the Jam, LEX the Lexicon Artist, B / I / R / T / H / D / A / Y, aivi and surasshu, Kirby's Dream Band, and several others. He returns to MAGWest, once again, but to play his own material.

Nick Drexler
4 Gameboys, some FX pedals, and a Nick Drexler. We are a party.
