Dakaboom will perform in Kenwood

For two nights only, on Dec. 27 and 28, Dakaboom returns to Kenwood for its 7th annual holiday show, featuring brand new material from the comedic duo.

Bringing joy to the North Bay and beyond for over a decade, these two Maria Carrillo High School alums – Kenwood-local Ben McLain and Cleveland transplant Paul Peglar – have been sharing music and comedy together for half their lives.

Dakaboom is a music/comedy duo from New York and Los Angeles. Described as postmodern vaudeville, their show must be experienced to be understood. Ben and Paul utilize a cappella, loop stations, stand-up, sketch, crowd interaction and several musical genres to create a world all their own. The duo are currently performing on college campuses around the country.

The annual show fills up the historic Kenwood Depot every year as a growing community brings their friends and family to experience this holiday tradition.

Shows start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available in advance by emailing, or calling 537-6685. You can also pick up tickets at the Kenwood Press office. Or send a check made out to “Dakaboom” and mail it to Sarah Phillips, 5500 Marit Dr., Santa Rosa, 95409.

Tickets will also be available at the door, if they don’t sell out first. CDs and DVDs will be available for purchase and drinks and refreshments will be available for a donation. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Kenwood Depot.
