Some fun First State events to dive into this weekend.
1. Mind-boggling show
Mentalist The Amazing Kreskin has remained a noteworthy figure for minding other people’s business, and doing it well.
Kreskin has, for six decades, dramatized the many facets of the human mind. His name has become an integral part of pop culture throughout the world.
Actor/producer Tom Hanks released the feature film ‘The Great Buck Howard” in 2009. It was announced at the end of the dramedy that the inspiration for the main character is The Amazing Kreskin. That character is played by the star of the movie, John Malkovich.
The Amazing Kreskin will bring his cerebral talents to Milton at 2 p.m., Saturday. Tickets are $20 to $30; guests will also receive a free wristband to the Milton Zombie Fest event on Saturday, from noon to 10 p.m.

2. Fantastic voyage with funk
When your band gets compared to the iconic funk outfit Jamiroquai, you’re doing something right.
New Jersey’s Dapp has drawn such comparisons and more. The group is named after the lead singer, who multitasks as songwriter and bassist for the outfit.
Dapp will hit the stage at 10 p.m., Friday. Admission is free.

3. Two musicians attack one piano
One piano plus 20 fingers equals amazement.
The duo Zofo - comprised of internationally acclaimed solo pianists Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi – perform on one piano simultaneously.
Not only is that impressive, but what’s more is their fingers move at lightning speeds.
Zofo has electrified audiences from Carnegie Hall to Tokyo, with their dazzling artistry and outside-the-box thematic programming.
This Grammy-nominated duo will get their hands on Lewes at 7 p.m., Saturday. Tickets are $35.
