Welcome to the 2010 NACA Mid America Regional Conference

Dear NACA Mid America Delegates, On behalf of the Mid America Regional Conference Program Committee, I welcome you to Grand Rapids, MI, for the 2010 Mid America Regional Conference! The RCPC has been working hard for a year now to prepare for your arrival and I trust you will see the results of their labor throughout the conference. With nearly 1,000 people in attendance, the energy should be palpable in the convention center and hotel. As you probably have noticed by now, this year’s theme is “Navigating the Rapids.” The world of campus activities is a lot like whitewater rafting: sometimes dangerous and always exciting! We hope you’ll take some time to navigate your way through the rapids of this conference. NAVIGATING SHOWCASES By being here, you recognize that there are just some things that you can’t get from YouTube. Take advantage of the great lineup of showcases all conference long. The Showcase Selection team did a great job of providing a wide array of some great and diverse showcases – don’t miss even one! NAVIGATING EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS There’s more to NACA than just fun and games. The outstanding lineup of educational sessions put together by the Educational and Professional Development team is just what the doctor ordered for programmers new and old alike. NAVIGATING NETWORKING Start simple: “Hi, my name is_______”…but at least START! The NACA conference is a great place to meet new people and obtain ideas. Do what we do at Maryville University; require each delegate to “steal” at least three ideas to bring back to your campus. To do that, though, you’ll have to meet some new people. You won’t want to miss the School Showcase either! NAVIGATING BLOCK BOOKING It’s not a secret any longer; our budgets are shrinking, not expanding. Take advantage of the Block Booking opportunities throughout the conference. Meet with associate members in the Campus Activities Marketplace and fill out Block Booking forms and start saving money one act at a time! This is just a preview of some of the great things you can navigate your way through this weekend. Please review the schedule and find the things that appeal most to you and plan on being an active participant. I hope you will enjoy your experience in Grand Rapids this weekend. If there is anything we can do for you, visit Conference Headquarters and a member of the RCPC will be happy to help. Have a great conference—mostly have F-U-N! Enjoy NAVIGATING THE RAPIDS!

NACA POLICIES

NACA’s Mission

Special Needs Policy

NACA links the higher education and entertainment communities in a business and learning partnership, creating educational and business opportunities for our student and professional members.

Although the Association strives to make all events accessible to all participants, including individuals with a disability or special need where reasonably possible, not all special needs may be accommodated at all sites. If you desire special services because of a disability, handicap or special need, please indicate the special service(s) on an attached sheet of paper and return it to the address indicated in these registration materials as early as possible and at least six weeks in advance of the first day of the conference. If the Association is unable to provide the special service(s) you requested and you do not attend the event, the Association will refund your registration fee.

NACA’s Definition of Diversity Diversity is an attribute and a goal. As an attribute, diversity is ethnic identification/race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion, economic status and the many other aspects of our lives which define the family of humanity. As a goal, diversity refers to the intentional valuing, respecting and inclusion of all peoples. NACA recognizes the diversity of all its members and supports the development and implementation of programs and services that achieve this goal.

Non-Discrimination, Diversity Advancement and Affirmative Action Principles NACA is committed to advancing diversity development and the principles of equal opportunity and affirmative action through its respective programs, services and volunteer involvement. To ensure compliance with these principles, the organization: • Will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, economic status, sexual orientation, national origin, age, ethnic background or disability in any of their policies, procedures or practices • Will promote vigorous efforts to enhance, develop and increase a diverse volunteer pool in all areas of the Association • Will actively promote diversity in their programs and services • Will expect all volunteers and NACA Office staff to consistently display a sensitivity to diversity and the principles of affirmative action • Will promote the importance of eliminating discriminatory and/or culturally insensitive language, behavior and content from NACA-sponsored activities and will urge all members and guests of the Association to cooperate in this effort. There is no intent to support censorship. The purpose is to induce thought and advance planning in an effort to ensure that showcase performances, Campus Activities Marketplace displays, educational sessions and other NACA-sponsored activities reflect appropriate diversity and sensitivity in their plans and actions.

Alcohol and Other Substance Abuse Policy The National Association for Campus Activities and the NACA Foundation recognize the serious threats that alcohol and other substance abuse present to college populations, the entertainment industry, and to society as a whole. We realize that our Association is not immune to the problems associated with abuse. NACA is committed to addressing this issue through various activities, programs and educational efforts on regional and national levels. All NACA members and volunteers are encouraged to uphold the Association’s statement in spirit and action; however, NACA has no responsibility for the conduct or behavior of event attendees. Alcohol served outside of any official event (an official event is one endorsed or hosted by NACA) is not the responsibility of NACA, but is instead the responsibility of the individual/group/firm coordinating, hosting, promoting or holding the activity. All responsibility for determining whether participants at the activity are underage and for complying with applicable state and local laws rests solely with the individual/group/firm coordinating, hosting, promoting or holding the activity, and is not in any way the responsibility of NACA or any of its employees or representatives. In the event that NACA becomes the subject of a claim or loss arising from violation of this policy by any person, group or business entity, or service of alcohol at any non-official event, that person, group or business entity agrees that it shall indemnify and hold harmless NACA from and against all resulting claims and losses, including NACA’s costs and attorney’s fees, that arise from or relate to violation of this policy and/or service of alcohol at said non-official event.

NACA Statement Regarding Legal Drinking Age The legal drinking age is 21. The conference hotel and facilities will not tolerate alcoholic beverages carried in open containers by anyone on these properties. NACA will not allow alcohol to be carried into showcases or the Campus Activities Marketplace.

NACA Statement on Showcases Attendance at showcase events is voluntary, and it is the responsibility of the attendee to determine whether a particular event poses a risk to the attendee. Some element of risk may be associated with some showcase events. Some events may include hypnosis, and some individuals may be more susceptible to hypnosis than others. The attendee accepts all responsibility for all consequences associated with attending showcase events, and NACA is held harmless against all claims arising from any result of attending a showcase event.

2010 NACA MID AMERICA REGIONAL CONFERENCE

Special Dietary Needs Please indicate the need for special meals on the registration form. Special meals may not be available at all sites.

Videotaping/Photography Policies NACA photographs and videotapes events and attendees. These photographs and video images may be used in any NACA materials and publications, and on the NACA web site. By attending this event, you, your delegates and/or the acts you represent give NACA consent to use photographs and video images in which you, your delegates and/or your acts appear. NACA delegates or other persons may use photographic, videotape or other image and sound recording devices to record events and activities that take place during NACA events, as long as these activities do not interfere with the audience enjoyment of or participation in NACA events. Those photographing, videotaping or otherwise recording events cannot interfere with showcase technical crew, stagehands, etc. The following specific guidelines apply to any photography, videotaping or other recording at an NACA event: 1. Professional crews will not be allowed; 2. On-stage filming or placement will not be allowed. Recording must occur from the show floor; 3. Access to the soundboard will not be allowed; 4. Audience views cannot be obstructed; 5. Power must be self-contained (i.e., battery packs). Access to the event power supply will not be allowed; 6. Use of supplemental lighting will not be allowed; 7. Some forms of recording/taping may not be available at specific venues due to union or other facility regulations; 8. Recording/taping of some materials may require the permission of the owner of such materials, and it is the recorder’s responsibility to obtain such necessary permissions. If audience members, showcase crew or other technical, conference or facility staff complain about the position of a camera/operator, the camera/operator will be asked to move. If the camera/operator does not comply, they will not be allowed to continue taping. BY USING VIDEOGRAPHIC AND/OR OTHER RECORDING DEVICES TO RECORD NACA EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES, THE RECORDER REPRESENTS THAT HE/SHE HAS OBTAINED ALL NECESSARY PERMISSIONS FROM ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDERS OR OTHER ENTITIES WHOSE RIGHTS MAY BE AFFECTED. THE RECORDER AGREES TO INDEMNIFY NACA, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS AND INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY ARISING FROM THE RECORDER’S VIDEOTAPING OR RECORDING ACTIVITIES.

Event Cancellation Policy NACA reserves the right to cancel any program. Causes for cancellation may include, but are not limited to, low participation by schools and/or associates, acts of God, etc. In the case of a program cancellation, NACA will only reimburse fees paid to NACA; any travel, lodging or other non-NACA fees will not be reimbursed.

NACA Civility Statement Prominent among the values that define the NACA community is civility, which includes mutual respect, fairness, and politeness. Membership in any community requires a concern for the common good for all who belong to that community. Each individual may possess different ideas, as well as different ways of communicating those ideas, particularly in a community as varied and diverse as an association. Because of these differences, respect and civility are integral to maintaining the quality of the association environment. Respect and civility should therefore be afforded to all individuals regardless of role within the association. This includes treating people with courtesy and consideration, acting and speaking judiciously and behaving professionally. All members of the association community are called upon to promote and value this ethic of common respect and civility. We will encourage discussion with a goal of instilling an appreciation for the importance of fair-mindedness, personal responsibility, and respect for differing opinions. At such occasions, members will always be strongly encouraged to observe common standards of decorum and to display a respectful tenor. We will also consider appropriate steps to be taken when members of our community do not respect these standards.

NACA STRATEGIC PLAN Here are some of the specific actions recognized as the top priorities for each goal: Goal 1: Professional Development

Goal 4: Inclusive Membership

Through the development of a comprehensive educational strategy, NACA will be the preeminent learning source for its members. Actions to be taken: Use the Steps to Individual Excellence as a Campus Activities Professional and the College Student Leader Competency Guide as the foundations for volunteer and curriculum development. Evaluate and modify the new Regional Conference Program Committee structure. The National Volunteer Development Team will examine and improve the various components of volunteer engagement.

NACA will develop and implement programs and services that support its diverse and inclusive membership culture. Actions to be taken: Collaborate with state and local campus activities organizations in an effort to provide educational opportunities to professionals and students. Explore the possibilities of international relationships to position the members of the Association for a global education and entertainment marketplace. Engage members and non-members through e-learning and social media to develop a stronger, more frequent connection to the Association.

Goal 2: Research Through NACA’s efforts, there will be a robust research agenda that advances campus activities in higher education. Actions to be taken: Continue to grow the year-old digital library. Review data from the Student Affairs Assessment & Knowledge Consortium. Refine the research agenda for the association and promote participation in research grant programs.

Goal 3: Knowledge Source NACA will be increasingly considered the most credible and trusted source of information about campus activities among our members, higher education and the entertainment industry. Actions to be taken: Serve as a resource for data about campus activities and the college market overall; Further develop the NACA brand by solidifying the message, developing concepts and ensuring consistency; Market the value of this information to all constituencies.

Goal 5: Business Networks All NACA members will see increased value in their participation and access to business opportunities. Actions to be taken: Explore non-dues revenue sources including new sponsorships. Improve the NACA website. Maximize opportunities to encourage and facilitate productive change, in part through reducing cultural and operational barriers within the Association which may impede change. Increase opportunities to preview talent via technology.

Goal 6: Advocacy Through proactive advocacy, NACA will increasingly influence the dialogue on campus activities issues. (This is a long-term goal.)

Adam Pate taught himself to draw caricatures while strolling around low-lit restaurants and nightclubs for tips in college. This would terrify most artists, but being a self-motivated, easygoing guy he began to draw very fast and have lots of fun. He is recognized by his peers for his ability to stroll and regularly draw faster than anyone else in the world. He can accurately draw 60-75 people per hour and as many as 200 at a 3-hour event (3 to 5 times more than average artists). A drawing takes about 45-60 seconds per person so time spent waiting in line is kept to a minimum. When appropriate, he strolls around events but most often he sits near a colorful sign with a timer on it. He encourages guests to watch over his shoulder, time him, ask questions, and joke around with him while he draws.

Serendipity is defined as the accidental discovery of something very desirable. When Mikal moved from his hometown of Detroit to work with a famous singer in Boston, he had no idea that less than a year later he’d be a successful musician based completely on his own work, rather than that of another artist. It seems that this serendipitous event occurred because Mikal picked the right location, rather than the right band. Since Mikal’s first solo show, he’s been touring schools and clubs from Los Angeles to London, while recording 2 debut albums— one acoustic EP, and one modern rock/pop record. In the process, Mikal has been nominated for 24 music awards, has been chosen to showcase in 6 NACA regions, has become sponsored by Taylor Guitars, captured the attention of the show Scrubs by writing a song for them, and has been named a “top artist under $2,500” by Campus Activities Magazine.

With his distinctive instrumentation and soulful vocals, singer-songwriter Brett Hite emerges onto the college music scene. Growing up in the suburbs of Spokane, WA, Hite began listening to a vast array of music; anything from Tracy Chapman to Michael Jackson. While playing soccer for the University of Washington, Hite suffered a severe injury that forced him to put his aspirations of becoming a professional athlete aside. While recovering, music became an outlet for Hite to escape the frustrations of dealing with his injury. While Hite eventually did return to the soccer field, he found it harder and harder to stay away from music. After college, Hite chose to pursue his dream of playing music and now can be heard touring coffee shops and colleges all over the U.S. His heart-rendering vocals and melodies suggest a pop sensibility—with true passion beneath—that is bound to find a worldwide audience.

Raised by hippies in the woods of northern California, Mo Mandel used to lie awake at night listening to his mother’s samba band practicing in the room next door. This is when Mo first considered performing himself, more specifically, performing matricide...flash forward to 2010, Mo Mandel has established himself as one of the most talented and entertaining entertainers in entertainment. Though not good at writing bios, Mandel first gained national attention by winning Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight in 2007, and has since made numerous appearances on Comedy Central, VH1, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and is a regular on the E! Network’s hit show, Chelsea Lately. Most recently Mandel was chosen to play one of the leads in a new sitcom pilot for FOX by the creators of Will and Grace, opposite Emmy award-winning actress Laurie Metcalf. He also likes pizza.

Shwa Losben writes catchy, yet sophisticated rock songs. Losben brings a light perspective to his playful brand of indie pop. The approach has also earned Shwa an immensely loyal fan base and quickly established him as an up-and-coming singer/songwriter. Now, others are starting to notice. In 2008, he released his debut solo album Chop Chop to wide critical acclaim. Rebel Spirit Music described the record as having “truly outstanding melodies crafted to perfection,” while DCist proclaimed “the search for the next worthwhile troubadour is over.” The title track earned Losben the prestigious ASCAP Robert Allen Songwriting Award, for which he was honored at Lincoln Center. By combining addictive melodies with a distinctive, fun-loving sensibility, it’s easy to see why USA Today praised, “[Shwa Losben] deserves to be heard by more people.” Now armed with Good Times, Good Times, it’s only a matter of time until he is.

Born in Youngstown, Ohio, and raised Italian American and Catholic. My father was involved in a family business and my mother was/is an elementary school teacher. Moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1995 with my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. Began work counseling adjudicated teens and children with mental health issues. Started teaching special education in the Philadelphia School District in 1998. Received my Master’s in Special Education in 2001 from Cabrini College and continued to teach in both public school and residential school settings. Started stand up comedy in 2000 and moved to New York City in 2003. I’ve performed on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and Live at the El Ray and you’ve seen me on IFC’s hit show Z-Rock.  In 2009, I won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Comic at the NY Comedy Festival. Most importantly, I was the 1983 and 1984 Spelling Bee runner up at Pine Grove Elementary School. I failed to advance to the national bee in Washington D.C. because of the complexity of the word “roothless,” which I still spell with two os.

In 2010, podcast fans voted him “Best New Guest” from among a pool of other amazing comedians like Marc Maron and Ted Alexandro. From a diversity standpoint, he’s great in the college setting. Without becoming a onedimensional stereotype, Ben writes from his personal experiences, touching upon universal truths, and broadening a college students ideas about what gay people are like. He’s down-toearth and approachable, accessible to gay and straight audiences alike. His affable nature and playful wit have made his live show a perennial hit in Chicago. After praising his music and comedy, Time Out Chicago raved, “Lerman’s stage presence is his best asset.”

Armed with classical sounds of the violin—yes, violins—retrofitted with Hip-Hop and Rock beats, the South Jamaica, Queens natives bring a sophisticated twist to the musical landscape. With their music leading the way, the Escobar brothers are simultaneously seeing their brand become a global phenomenon—already Nuttin’ But Stringz (NBS) has won a pair of Emmy Awards, scored feature films, released a platinum album; and they’re only just getting started. NBS was asked to audition for the third season of NBC’s reality/talent series America’s Got Talent. NBS would settle in for a long run on the show, eventually placing third. With even more national visibility from the show, NBS would perform for the 2008 Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama and for the Prince of Dubai, appear on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and is prepping an advertising deal with McDonald’s. While NBS has displayed impeccable savvy in marketing themselves, it’s the duo’s music that is still paramount. NBS’s new album is called Themes from a Musical. Plans for the album include a tour with a coinciding Broadway play. Ambitious, but NBS is capable of pulling it off. After all, the Escobar brothers are not just musicians but are well-established producers too, having scored episodes of TV’s Law & Order and The Black Donnellys, films including Step Up (which they also appeared in) and Robert DeNiro’s What Just Happened? But one of their biggest accomplishments to date is beating out Timbaland to score a piece on Michael Phelps for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Not bad for a pair of African American and Puerto Rican brothers raised by a single parent mother in Queens, New York. With their violins firmly in hand, Nuttin’ But Stringz’s new age symphonies are sure to rope in more listeners and fans.

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS BLOCK 1 | 1:30–3:00 PM A Road Map to Supervision Success Student affairs professionals rarely get time to spend on preparing for the challenges and opportunities that supervision presents.

This session, geared toward emerging supervision of professional staff, will help the participant to clarify his or her own belief about what strong supervision actually means and confront potential areas of focus or development before the supervision role even begins. In addition, we will spend time crafting the challenge of how to start a supervision relationship to help each participant be more confident and competent in their roles of supervision from the start.

Comic, Magician, Smart@$$ Michael Kent spent his younger years learning magic to make friends and meet girls. After graduating from college, it became his job. Audiences quickly learned that Michael’s laidback comedy style is very different from the magicians on TV. He now spends over 150 days a year touring with his comedy and magic show, and recently returned from a tour in South Korea entertaining our troops. In a style reminiscent of a late-night talk show, Michael invites the audience to laugh with him at the absurdity of a modern-day magician. He combines his sarcastic and irreverent sense of humor with mind-blowing magic in a way that seems to let the audience “in on the joke.” As he tours college campuses all over the country, Michael’s audiences are experiencing what it’s like when a stand-up comic performs (and occasionally pokes fun at) the art of magic.

What?! A white guy from Ohio, singing soul music and beatboxing to cheering crowds night after night? It seems hard to believe, but that is exactly what Jared Mahone consistently makes audiences do—believe. His authenticity comes through loud and clear, and by that first chorus you will find yourself grooving along to Jared’s decidedly soulful acoustic funk. Jared approached his 2010 release The Mixtape Project in a unique way. Instead of choosing his favorite 10 songs and releasing a traditional album, he decided to write one new song every week and release them for fans digitally. “I thought, instead of me deciding what album I wanted people to hear, what if I just released a bunch of material and let people decide which songs were their favorite,” Jared says. “The best part is that the subscribers are the ones who are helping to shape the album as it happens.”

Asia’s gripping words have never been less than an honest and genuine testimonial to his life. Performing for crowds from 40 to 1,000, he delivers all of himself each time, in what many have testified as one of the most jaw-dropping shows they’ve been fortunate enough to witness; but it wasn’t always this way. In the early months of 2006, Asia faced a battle with cancer. With his poetry at a standstill around that time, Asia considered retiring from poetry. He didn’t know it then...but it would be cancer that would save his life. While recuperating from surgery, Asia made a vow to God that if he became healed, he would no longer take life for granted—that there is an insurmountable amount of truth in the cliché, “Get busy living or get busy dying.” Now, in the post-cancer years, Asia has been featured on HBO’s Russell Simmons Def Poetry and Black Family Channel’s Spoken, was named 2006 Performer of the Year by the Association of the Promotion of Campus Activities, took First Place at the 2008 Southern Fried Poetry Slam Championships with his team MinoriTEAM and many more accomplishments. Asia has had the privilege to perform with great musical artists such as Mos Def, Jill Scott, DMX, KRS-One and Dead Prez and currently hosts Mello Mondays, an open mic venue, whenever he’s in town. Continuing to elevate his craft, he now tours with his guitarist and brother-in-law Jollan Aurelio and, together, they bring poetry to an experience that is both inspirational and moving. Okay, so maybe he never became the ninja he wanted to be, but come to their show and they’ll guarantee you will have never seen them coming.

Oregon-raised and Brooklyn-based, Libbie Schrader is a singer/songwriter with a passionate alt-pop/rock style. Libbie was the first winner of the Pantene Pro-Voice competition, beating out over 1,200 other female-fronted acts when she opened for Jewel at SummerStage in New York’s Central Park. Libbie has since had a nationwide club tour at venues including the House of Blues in New Orleans and the Roxy in Los Angeles, as well as a deal with Atlantic Records. Libbie appeared on the Gilmore Girls season finale performing her song “Sweet When You Wanna Be” just a few years ago and other songs are featured regularly in a wide variety of MTV shows including The Hills, True Life, and Parental Control, to name a few.

The band left college (don’t try that at home) to pursue an “upper-classman’s” education in rock and roll. For most of the past year, Lynhurst has been in-residence in Los Angeles writing, recording, and performing. Returning to Minneapolis, the band has finished its newest album Field Day (Anatomic/DKE Records). The band will be touring the US this summer and will perform at major festivals and venues including Summerfest (Milwaukee, WI) D-Fest (Tulsa, OK) Taste of Minnesota (St. Paul, MN) and others.

Hailing from Bangor, ME, and now calling New York City home, singer-songwirter Howie Day has had an amazing few years. With a multi-platinum hit single “Collide” selling over 3 million downloads, and being licensed on shows from Grey’s Anatomy and Scrubs to Glee and American Idol to a very successful touring career bringing his amazing live performances to audiences all over the world with acts like Tori Amos, Dave Matthews, Gavin DeGraw and David Gray. Howie returns to his solo touring roots in 2010, as he works on a new record for release later in 2011.

The Day That Everything Changed It’s every administrator’s nightmare — your campus (primarily white, small/large, public/ private) on the nightly news for a racist party, hazing report, or other shocking incident. Suddenly, you’re in crisis mode, searching for a sense of perspective. Whether you’re in such a mode or trying to prevent an episode, there are things you can do to examine the gap between social responsibility and your campus code of conduct. Jess Pettitt shares take away tools she has developed across her 10+ years in student affairs, 5+ years as a consultant, and 2+ years as a comedian. By clearly identifying both the worse case scenarios with the many ideals it is easier to identify real obstacles. Once these obstacles can be clearly named, we will set realistic expectations , goals, policies, and bias response procedures to cultivate an inclusive campus culture steeped in community responsibility.

After winning the 2005 California’s Funniest Female Contest, she went on to appear in the Vancouver Comedy Fest (2007) and HBO’s Andy Kauffman Awards (2007).

Anything—and everything—about SafetySuit can be summed up by the band’s name. The four members, who have been friends forever, simply feel safe and comfortable around each other. “We’re in a safe environment...and that makes us feel free to be who we are. The key word is safety,” says singer-guitarist Doug Brown. It wasn’t long before this budding Tulsa, OK, band began drawing over 1,000 people a night around their home region. So, the touring began—at nice places, at crappy places, at dives, theatres, clubs, colleges, or wherever anyone would take them. They moved to a music hotbed, Nashville, eventually signed a worldwide recording deal with Universal Motown Records, and have recently toured the world with Seether, Secondhand Serenade, Puddle of Mudd, 3 Doors Down, and many more. VH1 has been a huge supporter, with two of the band’s videos now spinning regularly on the music channel.

Notes:

A comedian and former high-risk drinker, Wendi Fox is committed to changing the drug and alcohol climate on college campuses through the power of humor. Wendi takes a hysterical and mind-bending look at the lives of the drunk and dangerous on our college campuses. Her mission is to inspire students to “Find The Buzz Without The Booze.” Wendi has been educating and entertaining college students for over 20 years.  A trailblazer in her field, she was the first speaker in the college market to combine education, inspiration and stand-up comedy, while still sending a strong alcohol awareness message. Wendi is best known for being the “anti-lecture artist.”  Why? Because she prescribes what some call a radical, but simple, approach to alcohol awareness. “Stop telling them not to drink and start inspiring them to find something in life they love more than getting drunk,” says Wendi.

As a teenager, he started appearing on a famous Peruvian TV show and by the age of 15, modeling, singing and surfing were his charms. At 16, singing in both English and Spanish, he made it official that his passion was music by getting second place on American Idol Latin America.

Nothing More combines an eclectic stage performance with explosive music, creating a legion of die-hard fans across the nation.

The band’s intelligent yet organic feel has given them the opportunity to perform with Amos Lee, Matt Nathanson, OKGO, Chrissie Hynde and Andrew Bird, in addition to selection at the One Movement For Music Festival (OMFM) in Perth, Australia. The band’s latest album The Moon Is Down has received acclaim from some of the music industry’s brightest tastemakers. Erin Gellert of Q Prime Music (The Black Keys, Nickelcreek, Joshua Radin) said, “In the era of auto-tune and single-based artists, the Speedbumps give you a reason to believe in the album again. Organic, brilliant, emotive music.” The band is excited to share their inventive groove with colleges across the country and with students who are seeking more than the “same old college band.”

Singer/songwriter Jeff Ting invokes the activism of musicians from the ‘60s and ‘70s by tackling issues such as capitalism, inequality, religion and mortality. Their latest record, Radius of Action, has been licensed by MTV and Oxygen and has been played on over 100 radio stations across the U.S., while the band itself has gigged in clubs from coast to coast. Influenced by groups like U2, Coldplay and Kings of Leon, their music blazes its way through doubt, fear, love, desperation and inspiration. Fueled by pop rhythms and grunge hooks, the songs are an electrical rainstorm of sound. Indie-Music.com says, “Most of the time, music just wants to have something meaningful to say. With Mayday Radio, the music actually does, and there’s no reason we shouldn’t listen.”

Jackie Tohn, or “Miss Personality,” as Ryan Seacrest dubbed her in the Top 24 of American Idol Season 8, is not your ordinary girl with a guitar. Best Week Ever said, “Some Idol contestants are superheroes. This one sang the walls off!” B.I. (or Before Idol), the guitar and ukulele-toting singer-songwriter was born and raised in New York, and relocated to Los Angeles to musicate. Jackie took a break from touring to record her third album 2.YO (2010), accompanied by her usual zany lyrics and out-there sonic decisions. An actress as well, Jackie has guest-starred on numerous TV Shows: Memphis Beat, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Sopranos, and The Closer, to name a few. “Smart, insightful, and in your face, Jackie’s acoustic rock material is utterly compelling. She totally captivates the crowd. Summary: This young artist is a star in the making. Jackie Tohn has a special gift and there are not many like her.” —Music Connection Magazine

Chris Hudgins sets out to bring songs to life and add further resolve to the words and melodies that ring true to any music lover’s heart. His is the new voice that listeners will identify and connect with immediately. Hudgins’ approach and sound make him stand apart from his contemporaries, as well as the typical Texas music scene. As a child, Chris spent hours on end listening to the radio, gleaning an education of expression and melody. His initial connection to song as a form of expression was so intense that he can only explain it by simply stating “I just wanted to be music.” That passion eventually drove Hudgins to become a songwriter, relying heavily on melodic structures to guide him in constructing his lyrics. This attention to melody and word selection makes Hudgins’ songs grab listeners’ attention, and rattle around in their heads for days on end.
