Rock/Soul/Prog, Spring 2008

STL

February 23rd, 2008 by imnore · No Comments

I have finally recuperated from my trip to St. Louis! However, I am definitely not unpacked nor caught up on all my work. I have a feeling neither of those will happen till I leave for Spring Break. ; ) The five days I spent in St. Louis were some of the best experiences of my life. By attending this conference called NACA (National Association for Campus Activities), I had the opportunity to meet so many people and engage in so many forms of entertainment. As a member of the GIANT entertainment group on campus, I (along with the other four members who attended the conference) had the responsibility of seeking out bands, comedians, magicians, etc. to bring to our campus next year. It was insane how many of the acts there were to perform and then furthermore, how many we enjoyed and want to bring here at Mary Wash.

This conference was, quoted from someone in my group, a “surreal” experience. Not only did I get to see DMC (stayed three rooms down from our group’s room…met him in the hallway!), Lance Bass, Caroline Rhea, Mr. Belding (from “Saved by the Bell”), Finesse Mitchell, Howie Day, Alex Thomas, etc., I had the opportunity to engage in all different kinds of music with all different kinds of people. Music was just beaming from every direction at this conference and it truly had an effect on all of the attendees and performers. I recommend the experience…especially since next year it will be in Nashville…The Music City.

Here are couple clips of music from two musicians that performed at NACA…my favorites:

Jessica Sonner “Rescue Me”
