Friday November 5th in Main Events
What do you do when all the panels are done for the day, the concerts are over, and you’re still itching for more? Check out the nightly dances, of course! Each night NekoCon brings you something unique to keep your body moving until the late hours.
In 2014 the Nekocon world experienced the first Spike lead Neko Dance Party event. Since that day, the Neko Dances have never been quite the same!
Spike brings his years of experience from the Los Angles to London to the 757 night club and theatre scene and has created one of the most popular events at Nekocon as well as one of the most talked about events on the East Coast Convention scene.

At an early age, Que was defiantly born to be different. Born and raised in Warner Robins, Georgia, Que was introduced to all different genres of music. From Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses, and Poison to Michael Jackson, David Bowie, and New Edition. Que loved music and so did his family. So you will not be surprised or disappointed when you hear a random mashup that you were not expecting. Aftertalking to and partying with several local DJ’s, Que decided to learn the Art of DJing. He has been an active DJ since May 2014 and Djing such conventions as Anime Mid-Atlantic, Ring of Fire, FursonaCon, and NekoCon.
DJ 401k aka Mikey V originally hails from New Jersey. Acquiring his love for music and learning to DJ in NYC, he found himself retiring from the military here in Virginia. Originally a mix show DJ for 100.5 FM, DJ 401k also played the local club circuit as well as internationally in Dubai, Bahrain, Greece, and Canada. Since partially retiring from the music scene he now owns his own cigar and coffee roaster company and occasionally dusts off his headphones for gigs like Neko or wherever Spike asks him to play!
