A Bit About Us

Dakaboom is a postmodern vaudeville duo from New York and Los Angeles. Long time best friends Ben McLain and Paul Peglar utilize a cappella, looping, stand-up, sketch, crowd interaction and multiple musical genres to create a world all their own.

With over 400 performances to date, Dakaboom has spent the last six years on a national college tour, hosting/headlining several a cappella festivals, sailing as guest performers aboard Princess Cruises, and lending their talents to several special events in Los Angeles including the Television Academy's 70th Anniversary Gala, the LA Made Series, and annual S.T.A.G.E. AIDS benefit shows.

Separately, Ben is a music producer and member of LA-based vocal-electronic project ARORA, featured as “Sonos” on NBC's The Sing Off; Paul is a Brooklyn-based musician/performer who was featured as the original pianist in Fox's Glee and currently performs with funk/R&B band The Dons.
