Campus Activities ProgrammingTM


National Convention Update Swing for the Fences It was just a year ago that the 2011 NACAÂŽ National Convention Program Committee started taking shape. We worked hard to find a talented team to best represent all the institutions and interests within NACA. As a team, we believe we met our goal by creating a Convention that will knock one out of the park. We hope you will join us in St. Louis!

The Line-up With amazing showcases, educational sessions, Campus Activities Marketplace sessions and special events planned, this Convention will keep you busy from the start to the final inning. By Showcases This October, two different Showcase Selection Committees convened to review hundreds of acts and Heather Larabee National Convention lectures. We had more than 630 submissions for more than 125 showcase and showcase alternate slots. Program Committee Chair These acts represent some of the best talent touring colleges and they will all be at the Convention to entertain and share their messages with you. Just as baseball has moved beyond being more than a domestic pastime, so, too, have our showcase offerings. We are excited to continue our international pursuits by including several international acts in our showcases. These showcases will provide a glimpse of the worldwide market and trends. Your school could make the world seem a bit smaller by sharing these international opportunities with your campus.

Educational Programs The educational programs being offered this year are extraordinary! You will have the opportunity to attend sessions on a variety of topics. There are sessions geared to new student programmers, experienced programmers, professionals and associates. We are confident there will be something in each educational session block to fit your needs. We will also continue with the Professional Educational Offerings this year to allow professional staff members a chance to network and explore programming ideas and issues while students are watching showcases. Several featured speakers will be presenting educational session, as well as special events. The speakers are on the cutting edge in their respective research areas and will be in St. Louis to share with you the most current trends in higher education. We are happy to have Dr. Ronald Mason Jr. as our Professional Development Luncheon speaker. Dr. Mason is the president of the nation’s only historically black university system. Professionals and graduate students may pay to attend the Professional Development Luncheon when they register for the Convention. The luncheon presentation will be held Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011. Our diversity activity offerings at the Convention will provide networking as well as educational and social opportunities. We will again welcome Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to the Convention with some special sessions and networking opportunities. Associate Mission Vice President for Intercultural Relations at Gonzaga University (WA), Dr. Raymond Reyes, is the featured speaker at the Diversity Dinner this year. Campus Activities Marketplace The Campus Activities Marketplace is going to feature more than 150 agencies, along with many booth demonstrations and novelty offerings. You will want to divide your delegation to conquer this large exhibit hall filled with awesome programming ideas for every holiday, special event possibility, lectures, family programs, orientation activities and daily programming offerings.

Our Bench All good teams need strong players on the bench ready to jump into the game and bring home a win. NACA volunteers are our players and our Convention needs you to make it a success. There are numerous ways for you to get involved with the National Convention. You can sign up to be a volunteer on site and work with various programs and sessions. We need assistance with welcoming delegates, checking name badges, guarding doors and much more. Stop by the volunteer booth when you arrive at the registration area. If you have not already noted on your registration form that you want to volunteer, sign up and be a part of the Convention!

Bottom of the Ninth As we begin to make the final touches on this Convention, I just want to convey to you how much I, and the National Convention Program Committee, are looking forward to seeing you in St. Louis. Everything we have done was with you in mind. This Convention is for you and we hope to see you there in February!

Fun St. Louis Fact: St. Louis was the first American city to host the Olympic Games (in 1904).

Campus Activities ProgrammingTM


A Pre-Convention Guide for Delegates

Plan Now for Success in St. Louis

As you prepare for the 2011 NACA® National Convention, it is important to keep in mind that your delegation represents your entire campus. With this responsibility, it is necessary to plan ahead in order to cover as many Convention events as possible. Before leaving campus, your delegation should accomplish important preparations that will help ensure your success to reach the following goals: • To become more informed and educated about the various aspects of programming; • To gather information about artists, performers, speakers and product vendors; and • To learn about various aspects of leadership and effective organizational functioning. Involve students who participated in a previous NACA® National Convention or regional conference and ask them to present helpful pointers at one of your delegation meetings.

One to Three Months Before the Convention 1. Have potential delegates complete applications and participate in an interview process. This helps convey to them the importance of the position and the responsibilities it entails. 2. Select those who will be returning to campus for at least another year. A graduating senior will be gone in a few months. Instead, use the Convention as a training opportunity for future leaders. 3. Choose a Block Booker and determine the level of Block Booking in which you will be able to participate. Also decide the process you’ll use to discuss potential acts with other programming board members once you return to campus.

Campus Activities ProgrammingTM

Three Weeks Before the Convention Hold a meeting of the entire programming board or organization board. Board members who will be staying behind can give important direction and feedback that will help delegation members participate more productively in the Convention. 1. Discuss NACA, its history and purpose. Visit http://www.naca.org/aboutus/Pages/default.aspx for more information. 2. Discuss who attends the Convention: student programmers, student activities professionals/staff, student union professionals/staff, performing artists, entertainment booking agents and professional support companies. 3. Review and discuss goals, objectives and expectations of Convention participation. 4. Review the Convention schedule and make assignments to delegates for specific areas of coverage. a. Review the listing of educational sessions (see Page B14). Assign each member of your delegation to attend as many different sessions in each block as possible. Complete descriptions will appear in the National Convention Program, which you will receive at Convention registration. Map out with others in your delegation who will be participating in specific educational sessions. b. Review showcasing acts (see Page B31). c. Review the list of exhibitors in the Campus Activities Marketplace (see Page B84). d. Discuss the basics of Block Booking and the acts/performers that interest you. e. Review the World of Ideas (see Page B46). Assign World of Ideas responsibilities. f. Set times for daily on-site delegation meetings while at the Convention to ensure that everyone stays on track and completes the tasks assigned to them. 5. Complete any required travel paperwork. 6. Discuss departure time and make arrangements to let faculty know when you will be missing classes and coordinate making up missed assignments. (See sample letter online at http://www.naca.org/Events/NationalConvention/Pages/ default.aspx.) 7. Assign tasks for next meeting.

Two Weeks Before the Convention Hold a meeting with the delegation to finalize details of your trip. 1. Make room assignments. 2. Review departure time and travel arrangements. 3. Pick up travel advances. 4. Discuss appropriate behavior and attire while at the Convention. 5. Discuss what to bring: Comfortable clothes and shoes, money for meals, personal entertainment and miscellaneous expenses; programming calendar and available room/hall reservations; programming budget; notebook/legal pad; pens/ pencils. 6. Bring an extra campus event or programming board T-shirt/sweatshirt to trade with another delegate. 7. Bring items that reflect school spirit (T-shirts, sweatshirts, glasses, pennants, etc.) for the NACA Foundation Auction (see Page B73). 8. Check on status of World of Ideas materials. 9. Distribute copies of programming calendar and budget to delegates attending the Convention. 10. Identify open dates and facilities on your programming calendar. 11. Make a list of major programs and events that are of interest to your campus and be prepared to take advantage of Block Booking and Contract-on-Site pricing discounts. Discuss all this information with your Block Booker, who will be attending Block Booking meetings. 12. Contact other schools in your area beforehand to see if you have any common programming interests. You may be able to do legwork that will result in a cost-saving block on a particular artist. 13. Remind group of on-site delegation meetings. 14. Review expectations regarding Convention follow-up and evaluation. Discuss how you plan to evaluate and take notes on showcases and educational sessions.

1. Find the NACA Registration area to get your delegate bags. 2. Take time to make sure you have all essential materials. The head of your delegation should register for the entire delegation and then share materials with you. Your delegation head should verify that you have your nametags, meal tickets, schedule, promotional flyers and the National Convention Program. 3. VOLUNTEER! Visit the Volunteer Center to schedule a time when you can lend a hand. Not only will you help ensure the success of the Convention, you will meet many new and fun people.

www.naca.org

1. Remember to eat well, drink water and get plenty of sleep. 2. Be an active participant throughout your time at the Convention. 3. Introduce yourself to other school delegates. 4. Take good notes during educational sessions and get all handouts that are available. 5. Go to all showcases. 6. Visit each booth in the Campus Activities Marketplace and get to know the associate members who are there. Remember, however, to take only one sample of promotional materials for your delegation. 7. Always have your programming calendar and budget information handy when you are in CAMP. 8. Touch base regularly with other delegates in your group and with your advisor. 9. Attend all scheduled delegation meetings so you can share information and discuss the information you’ve gathered.

While You Are in St. Louis

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2011

1. Immediately share educational information and promotional materials from the National Convention with board members who were not able to attend. 2. Move quickly to make programming decisions on attractions for which your delegation completed Block Booking forms. Prices are valid for only 45 days after the Convention. 3. Contact other schools in your area who may also want to take advantage of the Block Booking price breaks (if you didn’t do this before the Convention). This will help increase your Block Booking cost savings even more.

Campus Activities ProgrammingTM


How to Plan Your Delegation 1. Use the National Convention as a training opportunity for future leaders rather than a reward for long-time leaders. 2. Invite students who will be at your institution for at least one more full academic year. 3. Disperse members of the delegation to cover as many sessions as possible. Don’t have two or more members of your delegation attending the same session. 4. Balance the interests of the institution, the student organization and the individual when considering sessions to attend. 5. Hold a group debriefing after attending a group of sessions or after the Convention as a whole so everyone receives the benefits of as many sessions as possible. A debriefing held after your delegation returns to campus could also include student and staff members at your institution who could not attend. Delegates enter CAMP at the 2010 National Convention.

Fees, Deadlines & Other Information (Note: NACA policies are subject to change without notice.)

The NACA National Convention provides an excellent opportunity for colleges and universities around the country to meet one-on-one with artists, performers and agents in the Campus Activities Marketplace, preview live showcases, network with other campus activities professionals and obtain training for both professional staff and students. The Convention is the ideal location for NACA associate members, artists, performers, speakers and self-represented artists to find out more about the needs of NACA-member schools, meet campus activities buyers and showcase their acts.

Any member who has an outstanding debt with NACA of more than 60 days must clear that debt before registering. NACA reserves the right to apply any funds held for or received by NACA from a debtor to any outstanding debt, as well as any accumulated service or related charges where applicable, regardless of the purpose for which such funds were received or held by NACA.

Let’s Talk about It: Two-Year Institution Roundtable. Hot Topics, Cool Discussions and Awesome Ideas!

Assessment in Student Activities: Making Assessment a Part of Your Daily Work

Professionals at two-year institutions will have the opportunity to come together to discuss hot topics and walk away with new ideas and initiatives during a roundtable discussion. Bring your topic, bring your ideas, bring yourself and enjoy some time with fellow colleagues. Presenter(s): Crissy Fabiszak, Campus Coordinator of Student Life, The Community College of Baltimore County (MD) Audience: Staff Room: 265

When asked why they chose the field of education, many student activities professionals will say that they did so to “make a difference” or “change lives.” Tracking this difference is at the heart of assessment activity. This session will provide suggestions for integrating assessment in our daily work in student activities in ways that cause and improve student learning, produce direct evidence of this learning and reduce anxiety about conducting effective assessments. Presenter(s): Adam Peck, PhD, Dean of Student Affairs, Stephen F. Austin State University (TX); Amanda Horne, Assistant Director of Student Activities, Stephen F. Austin State University Audience: Staff Room: 266

To Be Young, Gifted, and SINGLE... and Working on a College Campus As student affairs practitioners, we focus on the holistic development of students. As young professionals, we still function under many of the same constraints. So how are we impacted when our social development is limited by the very environment we work in? Join us to discuss ways to have and keep a life outside of work.

Working in a State of Possibility: Compelling Questions for Student Affairs Using techniques inspired by “The World Café: Shaping Our Futures Through Conversations” and “Change Your Questions Change Your Life,” we’ll spend time discussing questions that have us thinking in terms of the possibilities that exist in higher education. In the spirit of learning rather than judging, we’ll start off by asking, “If you could have it any way you wanted it, how would student affairs work?” We’ll continue to drill down, getting more specific in the discussion questions while working to think boldly. Ideas, tools, techniques and new ways to ask questions will be the takeaways from this session. Presenter(s): Kristen Hyman, Associate Director, The LeaderShape Institute, LeaderShape, Inc.

SAVE MONEY BUILD RELATIONSHIPS DEVELOP SKILLS Just as in 1960, when a group of school representatives formalized a simple and practical idea to increase the buying power of their campus programming dollars, BLOCK BOOKING continues to be a cornerstone of NACA. Whether you approach the process from a money-saving standpoint or a student development perspective, the advantages to school members, associate members and artists/performers are many.

Benefits: • Saving money • Bring in more diverse talent by partnering with surrounding schools • Develop long-lasting partnerships with agencies and artists • Support green environmental efforts by eliminating excessive travel • Educate students in the art of negotiation, organizational skills and contracting • Create avenues for students to pursue future careers

Does Block Booking really work? Yes! A student affairs professional who uses Block Booking had this to say: Through utilizing the NACA Conferences and working collaboratively with other institutions, our programming board receives discounts from performers and artists that would otherwise not be available. The goals of programming boards around the country are to bring diverse, inspiring and unique acts that fit within a budget. At the NACA West Conference Fort Lewis College saved about $9,000 (discounted prices, shared travel, etc.) through Block Booking/Sessions and during the NACA National Conference Fort Lewis College saved about $10,000 and immeasurable time in developing one-on-one relationships with other institutions, agents and performers. Money spent at NACA is directly spent by student on events that they choose. NACA has helped students establish nationwide contacts and has opened numerous negotiating opportunities beyond what would be possible for a small and remote institution like Fort Lewis College.

Engaging Students in Values-Based Event Planning and Risk Management Many scholars have asserted that college should contribute to the moral development of students, developing them into people who can think and act morally (Chickering, 1969; Evans, Forney, & GuidoDiBrito, 1998; Mathaisen, 2005). This responsibility applies not only the classroom, but to the co-curricular experience as well. The incorporation of moral development into risk management practices on college campuses cannot only further reduce liability, but also educate students on value and moral based decision-making. Although based in liability, a trend in student-centered risk management education is for students to consider and use a moral and value-based decision-making process for event planning, understanding how their behaviors and choices impact others and themselves. The understanding of how, or if, students use moral behaviors and considerations as they plan events using risk management is unknown. There has been little to no research conducted in this area. This study shed light on this issue through exploring the considerations of students as they plan events and activities. It sought to understand whether or not those considerations are values-based and whether or not students take into account the impact of their decisions and behaviors on others. Another aspect of this study was to further define the education provided to students around risk management. Administrators approach this aspect of student activities in various ways from a hands-off approach to making all the decisions themselves. Risk management is not traditionally defined in moral terms but through legality. Through the exploration of students’ moral understandings of the event planning process, this study reframes the teaching and learning around risk management and the approach of administrators with students.

Carlos Robson

Cindy Santini

Bass/Schuler Entertainment

On that Note Entertainment

Carlos Robson never thought he would be a writer, much less a poet. But as long as he can remember, he’s always wanted to be a storyteller. And, since touching his first spoken word stage in late 2005, he has done exactly that, competing in everything from local, regional and international poetry slams. He represented Charlotte, NC, in the 2006 individual world poetry slam, and again in 2007. He has a dynamic ability to blend soul-shaking stories of love, loss and redemption with his stylistic re-interpretations of spiritual hymns and children’s songs. His real-life stories of both family and fate have been sending shockwaves through audiences’ worldwide. Most recently, his team, SlamCharlotte, won the 2007 national poetry slam. Since arriving on the college circuit, he has showcased at multiple NACA and APCA conferences and has quickly become a college favorite.

The title of “Hello My Love,” singer/songwriter Cindy Santini’s instantly infectious first single from Making Sound, her highly anticipated debut on Orlando-based Bonded Records, may inspire the first-time listener to think it’s yet another romantic guy-girl song—but the popular San Diego-based performer has another kind of love in mind. It’s the reawakening of her musical spirit, her newfound desire to write, sing and play live again after spending a few postcollege years away from her true passion. At last fulfilling her desire to share her heartfelt songs with the world, Santini—working with famed producers Stuart Brawley (Michael Jackson, Don Henley, Celine Dion) and Joe Corcoran— captures the high-spirited, life-affirming vibe of the 10-track collection on a grooving, reggae-influenced song that fills us in on the “Big Plans” she has for her future. The first of them was the release of Making Sound on Nov. 10, 2010.

Kyshona Armstrong Diversity Talent Agency Growing up in the suburbs of Irmo, South Carolina, Kyshona discovered her love of music sitting in the back pew getting chill bumps during the choir selections. Not really thinking she was one born with a voice, Kyshona picked up the piano as a means to express herself. Along the way, oboe and percussion came into play, but it was hearing her father’s guitar day in and day out that planted a seed. She fell in love with the raw sound of guitar and voice listening to her grandfather, aunts and uncles gather in the name of music during the holidays. Their honest voices and harmonies gave her a deep sense of her roots. It was through her profession that Kyshona discovered her voice.

Club Alternates (In Priority Order) 1. He Is We

2. Levi Stephens

Agency for the Performing Arts

Degy Booking International, Inc.

Rachel Taylor and Trevor Kelly both worked at Ted Brown Music together in Tacoma, WA. Aside from the Tacoma aroma (local joke!), there was something else in the air. Trevor thinks it was destiny. Rachel still thinks it was the aroma. After countless days of passing each other at work, they eventually started to jam together in the back room. While Rachel was influenced by her past years growing up and Trevor continued to listen to hardcore music, something interesting, creative and original came out. This was the start of He Is We; the idea that someone you pass by every day can influence the rest of your life—and you would never know. It’s the thought and power one person can have over their surroundings. You are listening to Rachel’s words and Trevor’s music. He Is We wants to go on a date with you; the signs are just too obvious.

Discovering Levi Stephens’ music is like enjoying a surprisingly great meal at the local cafe you’ve passed a thousand times before finally deciding to stop in. His debut album, This Way, goes far beyond the confines of R&B and seamlessly melds a variety of genres, from soul to rock to gospel to folk, while always remaining honest, clever and conversational. Levi was exposed to artists like Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers and Donny Hathaway. In addition to those soul legends, The Beatles, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix and Prince all made their mark on Levi’s musical style and led him to the guitar, which was the final piece needed to create his sound. With each song he writes, Levi’s goal is timelessness, musicianship, strong lyrics and shared experiences. This line of thought is even reflected in the cover songs that Levi chooses to perform.

When Andrew Jenks was 19, he moved into a nursing home for over a month and documented what life was like when you are near the end. What began as a low-budget summer project turned into a feature documentary that went on to premiere on HBO and play in theaters around the world. As he received e-mails and letters from viewers who profoundly related to the seniors in the film, he couldn’t help but think, “I want to tell the stories of my generation. I want to be a filmmaker that is able to capture what my generation thinks, how they act and what they ultimately stand for.” Now, the star of MTV’s hit show World of Jenks speaks about his experiences and perspectives of having lived with an MMA cage fighter, a young man with autism, an animal rescuer, a rapper, a poker player, an NFL cheerleader and more!

His opponent, David Burnett, is the president and director of public relations for Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. David got his start with SCCC during the first empty holster protest in October 2007. He has written multiple articles, appeared on numerous radio shows, addressed the Second Amendment March in Washington, DC, and appeared on Stossel (John Stossel’s show) to represent Students for Concealed Carry on Campus.

Charlene Strong

Jamie Tworkowski

The Agency Group

Keppler Speakers

Charlene Strong didn’t start out as a gay rights activist. But, after the tragic death of her partner and suffering the injustice of discrimination against same-sex domestic partners in the eyes of the law, Charlene was on a new path. Now a tireless advocate for equality, Charlene has been instrumental in passing Washington State’s landmark laws on domestic partnerships, the first in US history to be upheld. Her journey has been followed by Newsweek, The Advocate, the Associated Press, The Washington Post and CBS News. Her film, For My Wife, won Best Documentary and Audience Favorite at the Seattle Film Festival. A spokesperson for GLAAD and Equal Rights Washington, Charlene maintains her story is an American story anyone can understand. As an American who believes strongly in the rights that all citizens are created equal, Charlene’s passion makes her an excellent communicator who inspires others to add their voices as advocates for change.

In 2006, Jamie Tworkowski founded To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA), a non-profit group dedicated to helping those who suffer from depression, addiction, self-injury and suicidal tendencies find hope, support and love. In order to fund a friend’s recovery, Jamie posted a blog on MySpace and began selling T-shirts. Stutman (left) & Hager Supported by the bands Switchfoot, Anberlin and Paramore, the TWLOHA message soon spread all over the world. TWLOHA now has the largest online audience of any non-profit on MySpace and Facebook, and has responded to nearly 100,000 messages from more than 40 countries and donated nearly $500,000 to treatment and recovery organizations. TWLOHA became Jamie’s life’s work after learning the sobering fact that the third leading cause of death among 18- to 24-year-olds is suicide. Each night, he shares his vision of hope, reminding students that, “You are not alone and this is not the end of your story.”

The governor granted her clemency in 2009 and Stacey is now sharing her story, including: how to spot sexual and emotional abuse and what to do about it; the importance of speaking up, telling the truth and never being ashamed of who you are; the power of hope, forgiveness and helping others; and the legal system that can still be antiquated in how it deals with sexual abuse and women.

Lecture Alternates (In Priority Order) 1. Solving Immigration

3. The Black Jew Dialogues

The Contemporary Issues Agency

Bass Schuler Entertainment

How much do you know about illegal immigration? There are more than 11 million people living in the US illegally today. What is being done about this important issue? Political activists on both sides make the problem worse by their own fear, radical ideas and intimidation. Neither side is actively working together to find a common solution. Mike Shiley will appear in person to deliver a pre-film introduction followed by a screening of the film Solving Immigration and an extended audience discussion that includes a solution to the immigration issue. This solution will be non-partisan and will include all sides of the debate. In addition to being an award-winning filmmaker, Mike Shiley is a freelance photographer and journalist, developing exclusive stories for ABC World News Tonight, Nightline and Good Morning America, as well as ABC affiliates KATU-Portland, OR, KMGH-Denver and WFTS-Tampa.

This fast-paced comedy was written by and stars Emmy Award-winning veteran performer and educator Ron Jones and Larry Jay Tish. The Black Jew Dialogues combines sketch comedy, improv, puppets, interactive video, a game show and a post-show discussion. Ron and Larry play myriad characters with numerous costume changes as they take the audience on a hysterical and poignant journey through many of our closest held beliefs (and misbeliefs). This innovative approach to opening up the discussion on difficult issues like race, diversity, sexism and religion has earned the comedic duo praise from the likes of CNN, The Washington Post, Boston Globe and Campus Activities Magazine, as well as students and educators from coast to coast. With cutbacks in budgets, the one-two-punch of entertainment and lecture make it easier on your programming buck and, because of its comedic edge, it draws huge audiences at colleges around the country.

2. Dr. John Corvino— The Gay Moralist Kirkland Productions How does the issue of sexual orientation fit into the general theme of diversity? And how can we talk about these issues without stepping on one another’s toes? For nearly two decades, Dr. John Corvino, aka “The Gay Moralist,” has answered such questions with rigor, warmth and humor. Corvino believes that moral claims should be a conversation starter, not a conversation stopper, and so he creates a space where real dialogue on difficult subjects can begin with an eye to creating a safer and more welcoming environment for ALL people on campus. Corvino is a philosophy professor at Wayne State University in Detroit and a weekly columnist for 365gay.com. His writing has appeared in regional and national print media, at the online Independent Gay Forum, and in dozens of scholarly journals and anthologies, including Do We Need Minority Rights? and The Philosophy of Sex.

Amy Schumer

The Asia Project

United Talent Agency

Jus’ Wiggin Entertainment

Amy Schumer’s Comedy Central Presents special premiered in April and was one of the highest-rated specials in recent years. She also recently performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show. On the acting front, Amy just finished a guest-starring role opposite Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm. She made her network debut on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and appears regularly on MTV and VH1 shows. Ellen DeGeneres was quoted as saying, “Amy is one of my favorites; I expect to see big things from this girl.” Amy was selected for the 2007 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival in the “New Faces” category. She’s appeared on NBC’s 30 Rock, Comedy Central’s Live At Gotham and co-starred in their series Reality Bites Back. She can now be seen co-hosting the show A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 on Fuse.

As an aspiring novelist/astronaut/oil painter/ brain surgeon/ninja, Asia never thought spokenword poetry would be his calling. But, as with everything else we encounter in life while dealing with the illusive astrological joke we’ve come to know as destiny, here Asia stands: a cancer survivor who was won audiences throughout the country with a spoken-word show that has been nothing less than an honest and genuine testimony of his life—a spoken-word show that is always inspiring, sometimes gut-wrenching, and most often comical buffoonery. He has been featured on HBO’s Def Poetry and BETJ’s Lyric Café, has won the APCA Performer of Year award, and uses his poetry as an activist tool to help fight poverty in the Philippines. Taking his poetry to the next level, he is now touring with his brother-in-law Jollan, who adds dramatic guitar to make the poems come alive on stage. So, maybe Asia never became the ninja he always hoped to be as a child, but come to his show and he’ll guarantee you will have never seen him coming.

Anis Mojgani is one of only two poets in the 24-year history of Poetry Slam Competition to ever win backto-back National Poetry Slam Titles. After being crowned National Slam Champion in 2005 and 2006, the fire-tongued wordsmith of Iranian and African American heritage capped off his historical run with a second-place finish at the 2007 Individual World Poetry Slam Championship, and a rousing performance on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam Season 6.

These historical accomplishments, along with an extensive international performance résumé, have garnered Anis the distinction of being arguably the most accomplished slam poet of our generation.

Bobby Brackins

Camaromance Degy Entertainment

Agency for the Performing Arts Bobby Brackins makes hip-hop fun again. His first single, “143” (Featuring Ray J), immediately lit up dance floors and airwaves when it dropped in the spring of 2010. Universal Republic signed Brackins on the strength of the song and “143” became a veritable radio sensation as it dominated Rhythmic, Urban and Top 40 charts. Born in Oakland, CA, Brackins wields the style, substance and swagger NorCal rap has always been known for, mixed with a distinct flare. Brackins isn’t new to the game, though. When he was only 17, he formed a successful group with “143” producer Nic Nac called Go Dav. They became a hometown favorite, establishing the duo’s presence on the scene. Brackins followed up his Go Dav success with the independent single “Skinny Jeans.” Now, “143” has proudly solidified his place in pop and hip-hop, with the heat-seeking single “I’m Ready” hot on its heels. Brackins will keep the party going with his full-length debut, due out in 2011.

The subjects of love, life and death are all dealt with in an elegant fashion in Martine Groulx’s compositions, as they reach out and grab listeners. She released her first album, Empty Picture Frames, when Camaromance was a duo with Gabriel Rousseau (Chinatown/Citizen Ships). Continuing as a solo artist, Martine released Different Paths in 2006. From that album, “28 Balloons” was nominated for Best Song to Listen to in the Fetal Position at the 2007 CBC Radio 3 Bucky Awards. Camaromance’s third album, The Parade, released in March 2010 on Lazy at Work, shows a new musical direction, more grounded in Americana, with a hint of shoegaze and less in the folk/pop universe that she originally came from. Tired of following the parade, she is now leading it, more confident and ready to face life’s obstacles. Camaromance is for fans of pretty girls that rip your heart out, guitar in hand.

Considered by many to be the fastest rising vocal band on the planet, The Cat’s Pajamas pride themselves on their explosive singing talents and ability to engage each audience member during their dynamic, high-energy, humorous and interactive performances. Their blend of classic hits and current songs, spun together with a modern a cappella twist, showcases their unique style. The Cat’s Pajamas have participated in Fox’s The Next Great American Band, where they advanced to the top 30 out of a field of 14,000. They also finished in the top 10 for the national Oreo Cookie Jingle Competition, hosted by American Idol’s Randy Jackson, and were New York finalists on America’s Got Talent. The Cat’s Pajamas were the top guest act on Norwegian Cruise Lines and sang for Oprah Winfrey’s 2009 birthday party. They headline five days a week at the Dutton Family Theater in Branson, MO, but are always up for traveling. The Cat’s Pajamas are the barbershop group your mother forgot to warn you about.

Although born in South Carolina, singer/songwriter Dave Barnes spent most of his childhood in Mississippi, where he formed an early attachment to hip-hop, but was also exposed to classic soul, blues, and R&B by his parents. He later enrolled at Middle Tennessee State University and began writing songs for other artists. Barnes also played solo shows on campus, and by the time he graduated with a degree in recording industry management, he’d decided to pursue his own music career. Barnes moved to Nashville, TN, and gravitated toward the city’s acoustic folk scene. Barnes’ soulful pop songs won him the support of artists like John Mayer, while the spiritual tone of his lyrics earned some support from the Christian music scene. He recorded two independent albums—2004’s Brother, Bring the Sun and 2006’s Chasing Mississippi, both produced by Ed Cash—before moving to Razor & Tie for 2008’s Me and You and the World and 2010’s What We Want, What We Get. The latter album became a Top 5 hit on the Christian charts upon its April release.

Feelgood

Golden Dragon Acrobats from China

NUDE Feelgood is a generational combination of music into one pop, rock and soul melting pot. This melting pot has birthed comparisons to everyone from Maroon 5 to Prince. Backed by precision instrumentation and fronted by soul, Feelgood’s music transcends timelines and stereotypes. The heart and soul of the band is multitalented musician, singer/songwriter Stefan Di Maria. While his vision didn’t connect overnight, Stefan was drawn to the performances of artists like Michael Jackson (whom he channeled for a rearing rendition of “Beat It” in front of his classmates in first grade) and the musicality of his father’s generation of classic rock bands. Stefan has recently taken his vocal talent to Italy, where he has been added to the hit Italian TV show Amici, which is a combination of American Idol and Big Brother. Collectively, the band cites the genius of Jamiroquai and Cee Lo Green as strong influences that allow them to bring conscious musical intelligence into the equation of Feelgood.

Love and Theft

Margaret Durante

Creative Artists Agency

Conway Entertainment Group

For all the milestones—and there have been many—the magic that is Love and Theft has been most impressive on stage, in front of increasingly enthusiastic country audiences. Eric Gunderson and Stephen Liles first bonded through their songwriting and harmonizing abilities, and have been on the road ever since, first with Taylor Swift—who wrote “Hey Stephen” about Liles after touring with the trio—then with Jason Aldean, as their hit “Runaway” became the highest charting debut single of 2009. Tim McGraw soon took notice, who honored Love and Theft with the opening slot of his 2010 Southern Voice Tour, featuring Lady Antebellum. Underpinning it all is an authenticity that resonates with audiences everywhere. “Nothing beats country songwriting,” says Stephen, summing it up for his brother-in-song. “That’s as real as it gets and that’s why we’re here. We love what it represents and we want to carry it forward.”

Twenty-two-year-old Margaret Durante is one of the new talked-about singersongwriters to hit the famed Music Row in Nashville. A native of Potomac, MD, Margaret was raised in a household steeped in music, but it was her mother’s love of Mary Chapin Carpenter and Bonnie Raitt that she credits as the reason for her love of soulful, story-telling music. No stranger to the road, Margaret has toured since she was 16. More recently, she has opened shows for country stars Joe Nichols, Jason Aldean and Gretchen Wilson. Her versatile vocal styling is evident as her voice is also heard in songs on the Disney Channel’s new show, Shake It Up. “Mississippi’s Crying” is her new single currently making its way up the charts. The song is the first from her debut album scheduled for release in 2011 on Emrose/Stroudavarious Records. www.margaretdurante.com

Michael C. Anthony

Nappy Roots

Auburn Moon Agency

Buddy Lee Attractions

Michael C. Anthony is recognized as one of the most successful stage hypnotists and mentalists in the world today. VH1 calls him the best on the planet. Campus Activities Magazine nominated him Entertainer of the Year seven times and he has been named Male Performer of the Year! He has been seen on CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox. His show is an avant-garde blend of the human psyche, freaky mind-reading, eye-popping theater, and belly laughs. Michael C. Anthony has filled theaters throughout the United States and internationally.

Country and proud of it, Nappy Roots formed in the mid ‘90s while attending Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, KY. Drawn to the group’s distinctive twist on “Southern Bounce,” the major labels began flocking, and they eventually signed to Atlantic. Their label debut, Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz, was released in 2002, and the follow-up, Wooden Leather, arrived one year later. Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz was 2002’s biggest selling Hip-Hop album. The multi-platinum album featured the hit-singles “Headz Up,” “Awnaw,” and “Po’ Folks.” The year 2010 marked the return of the five country boys with the brand new studio album, The Pursuit of Nappyness, on Average Joe Records. The bright, vibrant, authentic sound will give every Nappy fan exactly what they need—Hip-Hop for the soul.

Mike has been performing on the college circuit for more than a decade, he understands what your board needs and delivers WAY beyond it! No other magician on the college circuit delivers the TOTAL package like Mike Super!

Beats, guitars, bass, vocals. How can all these sounds be generated by just one guy? For the last four years, Preston Pugmire has been entertaining audiences all over the US with his looping performance. Electronic floor pedals allow Preston to record anything he plays live, and then layer multiple sounds on top of it, creating an entire song from scratch. He does this right in front of the crowd while keeping them completely engaged and involved. He has shared the stage with a diverse lineup from Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Metallica to Ryan Shupe and the Rubber band. At his first NACA showcase last year, he was the most booked act of the conference. Preston Pugmire is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.

Sleeperstar is a new band formed in Texas in 2007. In their song “The Journey,” Chris Pearson of Sleeperstar shouts to the heavens, “If I said that I was wrong, and if I wrote you this song, would it bring you back to me?” Ironically enough, it is this question that forms the statement for this alt rock band out of Dallas, TX. Their music seeks to inspire and to make the audience keenly feel the pleading vocals, the U2meets-Third Eye Blind guitar work, and sentimental arrangements of every song. A broad range of influences can be heard in Sleeperstar’s music, from Keane and Coldplay to epic vamping in the bridge of “The Journey,” reminiscent of Sigur Ros.

Bass/Schuler Entertainment

IC Artists

Daniel Martin is quickly becoming one of the most in-demand entertainers in the country. His highenergy blend of insane magic, exhilarating escapes and sarcastic improv are continually leading to standing-room-only crowds! Because of Daniel’s unique performances, he was nominated this year by Campus Activities Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Awards for Best Live Novelty Performance, Newest Rising Star, Best Male Performer and Entertainer of the Year. Daniel’s magic has been seen on CBS, NBC, WGN, VH1 & ESPN. His show is fun, interactive, visual and unlike any entertainment you have ever had!

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, what if I just released a bunch of material and let people decide which songs were their favorite,” Jared says. Jared showcased at five college booking conventions this fall, booking more than 100 shows at universities across the US for 2011.

Amanda Duncan

Dan Ahdoot

Bass-Schuler Entertainment

Sophie K Entertainment

In a black-and-white world of singer/songwriters, Amanda Duncan is a burst of color. She provides an interactive and entertaining show with her catchy songs and ridiculous humor. This New Jersey-based artist has shared the stage with acts such as Eric Hutchinson, Secondhand Serenade, Teddy Geiger, and Melissa Ferrick. As a spectator, you’ll probably be impressed by her hummable melodies and powerful vocals, but what she’d rather is that you find a little bit of yourself in her lyrics and leave a little happier than when you came in.

Dan Ahdoot went to college at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University (MD) and graduated with honors as a premed student. Shortly thereafter, he decided to take the secure route and ditch medicine for comedy—his parents are still thrilled. Dan has been featured on The Jay Leno Show and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and was a guest at the Comedy Central South Beach Comedy Festival. Dan was a finalist on Season 2 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He has written for MTV’s Short Circuits, Comedy Central’s Crank Yankers and A&E’s Roast of Gene Simmons.

He has been featured on ABC’s 20/20, the 98.7 KISS FM Morning Comedy Special, and he is a regular on Jim Brueur’s radio show, Unleashed, on Sirius Satellite.

4. Julian McCullough KP Comedy

2. Michael Kent Fresh Variety 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 more than 150 days a year touring with his comedy 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 standup comedian performs (and occasionally pokes fun at) the art of magic.

Julian McCullough is a comedian living in New York City with his cat, Poptarts. He is also very mature for his age and seriously has it together. His Comedy Central Presents special aired in March of this year, and he was featured on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and the hit IFC show Z ROCK, as well as several programs on VH1 and MTV. In 2007, he performed as part of the Montreal Comedy Festival’s New Faces showcase and, in 2008, he came in first place at the New York City Comedy Festival. Julian also has some big things coming up that he can’t talk about yet, but thinks you might also be perfect for.

Ivan Pecel

Quincy Mumford

Fresh Variety

Hey Cole

Leave every notion of what you “thought” a juggler was at the door. Bringing the term “high energy” to an entirely different level, Ivan delivers an unforgettable show unlike anything you have seen before. As funny as a stand up comic, and as skilled as a Chinese acrobat, Ivan is of the new generation of performers and is one of the best at what he does. Whether Ivan is blindly kicking a flaming torch over his head, juggling ping pong balls using only his mouth, or having you laughing so hard that you should have worn adult diapers to his performance, his show is sure to delight any college audience. Ivan’s show is guaranteed to change your mind about juggling. His comedy will have you rolling and his skills will have you amazed. If you didn’t love this art form before his show, you will after ... or at least tolerate it ... .

“This kid nails it his first time out. Completely pretense-free, his debut delivers a focused collection of the low-key acoustic pop with a fragile saltwater twang” (Stephen Bove, Asbury Park Press). That’s the kind of buzz singer/songwriter Quincy Mumford is generating up and down the Jersey Shore—and beyond—with his novel take on today’s genre of feel-good music. A beach kid through and through, he can be found skateboarding or snowboarding when he isn’t playing several times a week at local venues to an ever-expanding crop of loyal followers. Quincy has been making music since he was nine years old and first started experimenting with his distinctive blend of folksy grooves, soulful undertones and reggae rhythms. Quincy’s music is kind of like Quincy himself—subtle but strong. Before you know it, your feet are tapping and your heart is smiling.

Augustine

Ben Kronberg

Cutting Edge Entertainment

KP Comedy

Augustine is a fun, upbeat, boy/girl duo straight out of the Sunshine State. This pair met up a few years ago and sparks flew. Although the two are not dating, their musical chemistry is undeniable. Jordan Meredith, 22, started tickling the keys at the tender age of four and by her teens had taught herself guitar and was writing her own tunes. Jordan has been performing in the North Florida area since she was 16. Louis Johnson, 21, was born with music in his blood. Having attended seven years of performing arts school, Louis has a solid foundation in not only contemporary music, but also classical and jazz. After performing for six years with his teen punk band, Odd Man Out, Louis traded in his electric for an acoustic and joined up with Jordan for an adventure to NYC. From their catchy covers to their fresh originals, these two are sure to “make the birds Chirp Chirp and the hearts Beat Beat.”

Ben Kronberg’s star is certainly on the rise. Ben’s unique style blends clever one-liners and witty observations with catchy songs that he performs while playing instruments like the guitar, Casio keyboard, and loop-pedal. Much of his material has been inspired by girlfriends, who are now, incidentally, ex-girlfriends. Since his breakout performance in Aspen, Ben has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly. Comedy Central recently named Ben in their list of “Comics to Watch” in 2010. Ben has also appeared twice on ABC’s hit game show Wipeout—one time as a normal contestant and most recently in the All-Star Episode. He lost both times, but would still go back for a third helping of pain if asked.

Ben Pegg

Emmett Short

Cutting Edge Entertainment

Innovative Artists

Ben Pegg’s smooth, expressive voice is reminiscent of that of the late Jeff Buckley’s. His guitar skills are on par with those of Michael Hedges. And traces of his earliest musical influences–Radiohead, Pat Metheny, Debussy and Mozart–are felt within his intricate compositions. What you hear on the recorded tracks is just Ben and his guitar. That’s it. That percussive beat you hear is Ben pounding away on the wood. That clicking flamenco-like noise is the drumming of his fingernails. That full bass-like sound, that’s him, too, making the most of his instrument. Unlike many singer-songwriters, Ben doesn’t need a band behind him because he has a precise feel for the empty space between sounds that is so often neglected.

Emmett Short is a Nor Cal kid who cut his teeth in the competitive San Francisco comedy scene before heading south to Los Angeles. Emmett has toured the country, performing at the Improv, Laugh Factory, Comedy Store, Cobb’s, Punchline, Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, Caroline’s and many more. Emmett’s comedy has also taken him overseas to entertain our troops in Okinawa and Tokyo. In 2006, Emmett was invited to perform at the Montreal Comedy Festival, where his ridiculous, yet logical, brand of comedy was showcased alongside some of the most talented up-and-coming comics in the country. In 2010, Emmett was a semi-finalist at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta, GA. Emmett has been featured on Effinfunny.com (http://www.effinfunny.com/jeff-short) and has received great reviews from LivecomedyLA.com (http://livecomedyla.com/tag/jeff-short/). He’s also been in a number of national commercials (http://web.me.com/itssofuntolaugh/ www.jeffshort.TV/T.V..html) and has recently played a co-star role in NBC’s new hit comedy Community (http://www.nbc.com/community/).

Brett Hite Indie Community Artist Agency 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 US. Hite was one of the most booked artists at NACA Mid America in 2010.

Joe Wong KP Comedy Born in Baishan, China, Joe enjoyed watching traditional Chinese stand-up and comedy sketches. Fascinated by the vibrant American culture, he tried to learn about it through rock music and limited access to books and movies. Joe finally made the leap to the United States in 1994, ending up at Rice University in Texas, where he earned a PhD in biochemistry. Moving to Boston in late 2001, Joe enrolled in stand-up, acting and improvisational comedy classes, quickly becoming a Boston favorite among comedians and audiences alike. On April 17, 2009, Wong made his debut on The Late Show with David Letterman. Very impressed by his performance, Letterman offered Joe a sitcom development deal with his production company, Worldwide Pants. Joe has recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Ellen’s Bigger Longer and Wider special, taped in Chicago. He also made another appearance on Letterman’s show in February.

Jay Nash

Shane Henry

Blackbird Artists Agency

Wally’s World of Entertainment

Jay Nash, East Coast native and rock troubadour, has been blessed with the kind of excruciatingly rustic voice so rarely heard on record. He emerged into the national spotlight from the same Los Angeles music scene that gave rise to Sara Bareilles, Katy Perry and many other current pop luminaries. Nash has shared the stage with everyone from Counting Crows and Maroon 5 to Keb Mo and Dave Mason (and Sara and Katy ... ). He has logged more than a thousand live performances and sold more than 25,000 albums without ever having signed a conventional record label deal. He writes songs that are all at once clever and down to earth. Although subdued at times, his voice articulates a quiet power that commands the attention of his listeners. Jay Nash is a “lifer.” He’s a musician dedicated to the craft of songwriting and the life of the rock ‘n’ roll road show. His loyal fan base was built brick by brick. Look for his new full-length record, produced by Chris Seefried, in February of 2011.

Shane Henry, singer/songwriter/guitarist, began his musical journey at 19, when he played 30 national dates on the B.B. King Festival Tour. Following the tour, Shane signed with Shanachie Records and, with the help of fellow musicians Double Trouble, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and producer Kevin Bowe, Shane’s album Deliverance was created and distributed nation-wide. Shane’s musical style has evolved over the years from a heavy blues-influenced style to what is now an eclectic blend of rock, soul, blues and pop. Listeners compare his sound to legends like Stevie Wonder, John Lennon and Eric Clapton and newer artists such as James Morrison and John Mayer. Shane is currently playing shows across the country, from national festivals to popular venues and colleges. Most recently, he showcased at the 2010 NACA® West Regional Conference and has recorded and released Beauty In The Struggle (2010). A number of TV shows are presently using Shane’s songs.

Nafeesa Monroe DPL Productions A coincidental plane ride to New York lead Nafeesa to Da’ Poetry Lounge, where her transformation from occasional poem writer to spoken word artist took place.

Sexversations®

You Know What Happens When You Assume...It Changes the World!

The College Agency

Kirkland Productions

Sexversations® is an entertaining and powerful educational program that inspires straight talk and clever discussions about sex, intimacy, relationships, safety, sexuality and questions to open your mind and challenge your conscience. In this program, no questions are off limits and answers and dialogue are tackled with humor and inclusivity. Sexversations® can enhance your sexual literacy, well-being and health and help you learn more about yourself, others and how to become safer, more secure and sexually empowered. The goal of Sexversations® is to get participants talking— ultimately, the best way to create a sexually empowered culture filled with confident, empowered, healthy and respectful individuals is to talk about it. Sexversations® helps start the critical conversations so that you we better understand our boundaries, our partners and ourselves. In addition to the Sexversations® program, an additional workshop, “Train the Trainer,” is available in order to encourage talking once the facilitators leave campus.

Welcome to “hit-the-ground-running-actionorientated-take-back-to-your-campus-real-non-fluffy-social-justice conversation starters.” Jess Pettitt shares takeaway tools she has developed across her 10-plus years in student affairs, five-plus years as a consultant, and two-plus years as a comedian. What is the difference between social justice and diversity? As a leader, change agent, and person working and living with other people, knowing this difference is imperative. Learn the difference, stretch from your comfort zone, sit in your privilege, power and place of dominance within institutional and systematic forms of oppression in this highly interactive program. This is not your typical diversity training—there will be no finger pointing, heavy theory, guitar playing or guilt trips. Jess is more than just words ... action!
