2018 Best Performer

The Faithful Sidekicks are the acoustic geek/filk comedy musical duo of Eric and Jen Distad. They started making music together in 2004 but it wasn't until they combined Eric's love of songwriting with Jen's skills in Improv Comedy that they found their musical passion and started having enormous fun in the process. Now, they write and perform catchy original (mostly) comedic songs about the geeky/fannish things that they love, with topics ranging from Star Trek to SQL Code and everything in between. Based in Andover MN, they have been delighting audiences together at coffee shops, SF Conventions and small venues around the US, Canada, and even Germany since 2014.

They have released 2 CDs - *.* And Other Star Things and Achievement Unlocked.

One With the Force

Through all the ups and downs, we are still Star Wars fans.

When I was a kid
Going to a grocery store
I always waved my hand
To open the door

I would turn off my targeting
When I shot a basketball
Knowing that the Force
Would surely guide its fall

I believed the Force could get me
Out of every tight spot
And if I only had a saber
I could deflect every shot

With the Force I could jump so high
I'd leave the earth behind
I could simply wave my fingers
to change someone's mind

And I still want to believe

I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one
With the force

I'd have a little green guy
Who'd ride around on my back
He'd teach me knowledge and defense,
But not a word about attack

I'd peer into the future,
See visions of my fate
But somehow I'd always get there
Just a bit too late

And I still want to believe

I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one
With the force

Maybe there's no mystical field
That guides my destiny
They say it's all
Simple tricks and nonsense
But I still believe
That something connects us all
And I know
It's not Midichlorians

I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one with the force
And the force is with me
I am one
With the force
