On Sept. 20, three live bands performed for the campus community and visiting relatives during the family weekend event. They played in a tent outside the campus center.

The first band that performed was “The Storm,” which is a local rock cover band and consists of high school freshmen.

They played to a relatively small crowd at first, mainly because most people had not shown up yet. Nevertheless, everyone who saw the young band perform was impressed with the skill of such young musicians.

“They are very impressive for being so young,” said Whitney Diedrich, student success and engagement coach.

The next band in the lineup was “The Inventors,” which is another young local band. They did several alternative rock covers but also played some of their original pieces, which the crowd found to be enjoyable. By this time, the crowd had increased.

The final band was the “Bluetones,” who differed from the other acts in performing Motown and contemporary R&B songs.
