Dimensional Riffs began as four geeks cracking jokes and cranking out tunes. After a while, they realized they were pretty good at it. Jenny, Kat, DJ, and Drew take their favorite sci-fi genres (Doctor Who, Firefly, etc.) and a bunch of other stuff from 21st-century geekdom and make them into songs. When they’re not rocking out in cons, they’re living, working, and laughing across southeastern Virginia—from Richmond to Suffolk.
