GREETINGS FROM THE PROGRAM COMMITTEE CHAIR

Welcome to the 2013 NACA National Convention in Music City, Nashville, TN! The 2013 Convention Program Committee and I are excited to host this year’s Convention in downtown Nashville for the first time in NACA’s history. The music of Nashville weaves such a fundamental pattern in its cultural, business and social fabric, and the city’s Southern hospitality will welcome and excite each delegate and serve as the foundation for an ENGAGING Convention experience. More than 2,000 students, staff, artists and associate members from all over the country will be attending this year’s Convention. Tennessee is known as the Volunteer State and serves as the perfect stage to showcase the diversity of individuals coming together to celebrate our connection of education and entertainment. Each student leader, professional, associate, performer and NACA® Office staff member offers special and unique characteristics and talents as members of the Association and I want to encourage each of you to ENGAGE and EMBRACE the numerous opportunities provided during our time together to network and make meaningful connections. The Convention Program Committee has gone above and beyond the call of duty since last year’s Convention to offer each delegate a memorable experience unlike any other! We hope you will ENGAGE in all things NACA – showcases, educational sessions, the Campus Activities Marketplace, diversity programs, and a variety of new program initiatives. Connect with your delegation to complete a thorough review of the Convention Program to prepare yourselves to learn, strategize and discover fresh and amazing concepts presented in Nashville! I would like to offer a genuine and sincere thank-you to Dave DeAngelis, Chair of the NACA® Board of Directors, for entrusting me with this amazing volunteer leadership position and leading the Association’s largest program. We’ve shared numerous NACA® experiences together since our paths first crossed at the Placement Center during the 1994 Convention in Boston, MA, and the Nashville Convention will definitely be another highlight we’ll share! In addition, I would also like to thank Convention Services Coordinator Larry Mannolini, and Educational Program Coordinator Lily Chowana-Bandhu, as well as their coordinators and committee members, for the assurance, sustenance and creativity they have provided to make this Convention one of the best in NACA’s history! Most importantly, I would like to thank the NACA® Office staff for all of their consistent hard work and unconditional commitment to the Association, because without it, we would not be as successful in pulling the entire Convention together as a volunteer team! A huge heartfelt “THANK-YOU” from me, the entire 2013 National Convention Program Committee, and all of the NACA® membership! Finally, I want to thank all of my students, staff, supervisor and colleagues at Shippensburg University for always believing in and supporting me throughout the past 10 years in my many volunteer leadership positions with NACA and, most importantly, as this year’s Convention Program Chair, because without your encouragement, understanding and suggestions, my success in this position would be nonexistent. I also want to thank all of the associates, artists, colleagues and my friends for the many words of encouragement and support they’ve offered throughout the Convention’s planning process. Enjoy your time and take advantage of all that Music City has to offer. And remember to ENGAGE in all the education and entertainment opportunities available at this year’s Convention!

Dr. Jeanne S. Hart-Steffes is Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at Western New England University (MA), where she began her tenure in July 2009. Previously, she served as Associate Vice-President for Student Affairs at Syracuse University (NY).

Her professional positions have included work experiences at Capital University (OH), Cornell University (NY), Northeastern University (MA), and at the University of Maryland in both student and academic affairs. She is also currently an adjunct faculty member at Ithaca College, teaching in its Graduate and Professional Studies program on sustainability. Dr. Hart-Steffes is a two-time past president of ACPA-College Student Educators International. During her tenure as president, one of her key educational goals/work was on sustainability.

In June of 2008 and 2009, she co-chaired the ACPA Sustainability Institute at Harvard University (MA). The ACPA Taskforce monograph Toward a Sustainable Future: Student Affairs’ Role in Creating Healthy Environments, Social Justice, and Strong Economies was released during the Summer 2008.

Diversity Dinner Topic: Identity and Professional Practice: Inspiring through Introspection Culture, gender, sexuality, nationality, socio-economics, ability and other identities inform professional practice in deep ways. Participants will engage through introspection and peer interaction to reflect on ways identity manifests in practice. The facilitator will share stories of identity and practice in the profession. The presenter regularly facilitates introspective identity introspection in professional practice, conducts research and is widely published in this area. Educational Session Topic: Culture and Professional Practice Working effectively across cultures is a daily challenge and opportunity for professionals in our field. This interactive workshop will offer a chance for participants to think about and apply cultural constructs and introspection to professional practice. Activities will be facilitated to assist participants in applying cultural models to professional practice, discuss ideas for application with peers, and consider how personal cultural norms, values, assumptions and beliefs play out in every day practice. A cultural strengths-based approach will be emphasized.

Educational Session Topic: Guiding the Next Generation of Social Change Agents through Sustainability Practice and Programming This session will present sustainability information, emerging trends and techniques for those college student educators who are eager to learn and program on and about sustainability’s triple bottom line: healthy environments, a healthy economy, and social justice.

Dr. Beheruz N. Sethna is in his 19th year at the University of West Georgia as professor and president.

He earned a doctorate in marketing and master of philosophy from Columbia University (NY), as well as a master’s degree in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institutes of Management and Technology. Professional Development Luncheon Topic: Implications of the Flattening World for American Higher Education and Society The large part of the presentation will refer to the changing global competitive environment. The “flattening” influences that changed our world during a very brief period will be discussed, as will the implications of those changes for American higher education and society. This presentation will draw from the works of several sources, examine the changing, flattening and increasingly competitive world, and draw implications, not just for colleges and universities, but also for all of American society. Educational Session Topic: Implications of the Flattening World for American Higher Education and Society – Discussion This discussion is based on the Professional Development Luncheon presentation.

NACA® POLICIES AND OTHER INFORMATION NACA Mission Statement

NACA Alcohol and Other Substance Abuse Policy

The National Association for Campus Activities® (NACA) advances campus activities in higher education through a business and learning partnership, creating educational and business opportunities for its school and professional members.

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. No alcoholic beverages or smoking are permitted in educational sessions, showcases or the Campus Activities Marketplace.

NACA 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 that 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 their respective programs, services and volunteer involvement. To ensure compliance with these principles, the Association: • 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 its 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 its programs and services; • Will expect all volunteers and NACA Office staff to consistently display 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.

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.

If the Association is unable to provide the special service(s) requested by a delegate and the delegate does not attend the event, the Association will refund the registration fee.

Vinny DePonto

When Vinny DePonto was a young boy, his father took a wrinkled silk pocket square out of an old shoebox, rolled his sleeves up and tucked it down into his closed fist and in the blink of an eye, the silk vanished! A simple conjuror’s trick convinced Vinny that a life of legerdemain was where he belonged. Unbeknownst to Vinny, the shoebox of magic, which he was now obsessed with, was his late grandfather’s, who learned sleight of hand to entertain his comrades during the war. He was delighted to learn that conjuring was in his blood. Today, Vinny performs for such companies as IBM, PepsiCo and The Gap. A performer, writer and inventor of magic, Vinny has seen his original work appear in multiple publications, including Magic Magazine, the industry’s leading publication. In 2006, Vinny was a winner in the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas, and was honored with the Lance Burton Award of Excellence. A New York native, Vinny has also been a featured actor and consultant in several off-Broadway productions and cabarets.

Humming House’s mingling of swing, rockabilly and Irish music, along with clanging electric guitars and surprising lush layers and harmonies, set them apart from growing legions of roots-influenced artists. Songwriter and lead vocalist Justin Wade Tam began collaborating with his band mates at casual Irish jams he hosted at his Nashville home. Meanwhile, mandolinist Joshua Wolak is a straight-up bluegrasser who also happened to study trombone and piano. Kristen Rogers, a young, but old school R&B and soul singer, brought in bassist and classical composition guru Ben Jones. It’s fitting that a song about Django Reinhardt, the father of gypsy-jazz, kicked off the group’s self-titled debut last year. The band members certainly embrace the gypsy spirit, having come from varied corners of the country with all types of instruments and styles to find each other in Nashville.

Armed with a megawatt smile and a pocket full of dreams, Erin Jackson is poised to conquer the world of stand-up.

Since making a name for herself in East Coast comedy clubs, Erin has garnered national attention with performances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. She was a semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and was a featured writer and performer for TBS’s Bitcom Series.

Eighteen-year-old singer/songwriter Noah Guthrie is making his mark! The young South Carolina native has been steadily building a name for himself through his live performances and unique covers. That build recently became an all out explosion when his cover of LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsvlsuLau5c) went viral, earning him more than eight million views in less than a week. This landed him on NBC’s Today Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and several US and European radio stations where his cover has gotten airplay. Noah has opened for a wide variety of artists such as Selena Gomez, Neon Trees, Cobra Starship and Matisyahu. His original music is a mixture of Americana pop with a touch of blues and is often described as smoky, rich and romantic. Currently in the studio working tirelessly on his debut album, Noah hopes to have a release out soon.

The Rising Phoenix is a poet and writer who hails from sunny Central Florida. Her bright disposition shines through her journey of life through triumph and tragedy. She is primarily a poet, but infuses comedy into her showcase of her real-life situations. She speaks French, German and Spanglish, and understands full well the necessity of communication and diversity. The Rising Phoenix would be a perfect addition to festivities for Black History Month, Women’s History Month, domestic violence awareness, women issues programming, and writing workshops. She has a CD titled AWay With Words, released in December 2010, and a second CD, Lady Brings the Blues, released in March 2012. The Rising Phoenix has found her niche in the male dominated world of spoken word by speaking as one of the few voices of women. She will make you laugh, cry and feel utterly inspired.

Brandon Vestal has appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and he can be heard on XM/Sirius radio. Brandon was recently named “Best of the West” at the Detroit Comedy festival.

Since then, he has gone to No. 1 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter Chart, entered the Top 20 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart and had a top 10 Christmas album on iTunes. Tim has appeared more than 40 times on the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning show this past year and performed with The Fray, All-American Rejects, LeAnn Rimes, Blake Shelton and more. His song “She Sets Me Free” was featured in a national TV ad campaign for the Belk clothing chain (Fall 2012). Tim was featured this past September-November by Clear Channel Radio as their artist of the month on both A/C and Hot A/C Radio across the country. Tim believes his greatest accomplishment is being a national spokesperson for Kidd’s Kids and the Susan G. Komen Foundation, both of which he supports with proceeds from song releases.

Scarletta is a high-energy country trio that brings the party to every town they play! Members of the group came together to form the band after having toured internationally with Chris Cagle, Aaron Tippin and Bo Bice. Lead singer Aubrey Collins is no stranger to the spotlight. After spending her teenage years performing in the LA rock scene, she moved to Nashville in 2007 to replace Heidi Newfield in the commercially successful band, Trick Pony. Aubrey decided to leave that group to pursue other opportunities and soon after met Stoops and Harris to form Scarletta. The group’s single “Right Here Right Now” is climbing the country music charts, and the music video is being played on CMT and TCN.

With his unique brand of magic, Scott has inspired thousands to find their driving passions and make a positive difference.

First there was Pluralism, then Multiculturalism, followed by Tolerance and then Diversity – now Social Justice. Notice how nothing really seems to be changing? Jessica Pettitt does, too, and radically changed her approach to benefit college students, staff and faculty alike. Although participants will be laughing, she promises no drum circles, guilty tears or finger pointing. This will be a HIGHLY interactive program that will leave participants with actual action steps to make REAL change in their lives. Jessica takes 10-plus years in student affairs, five-plus years of national consulting work, and two-plus years of standup comedy stage to stage as part of her mission to inspire change, dismantle oppression, and recognize our privilege. Through teaching, writing and facilitating tough conversations, Jessica has figured out how to connect getting “it” to actual measurable action steps. Now it is your turn!

Nirvan Mullick is an award-winning filmmaker and digital strategist, whose short film Caine’s Arcade has taken the Internet by storm and launched a worldwide movement. Caine’s Arcade is an 11-minute film about a nine-year-old boy’s hand-made cardboard arcade, located in his dad’s used auto parts store in East LA. Caine dreamed of having customers visit his arcade, and he spent his summer preparing everything, perfecting the game design, making displays for the prizes (his toys), designing elaborate security systems, and hand-labeling paper-lunch-gift-bags. However, due to the store’s location, his arcade got almost zero foot traffic, and he never had a customer. One day, by chance, Nirvan walked in looking for a used door handle for his car. Nirvan became Caine’s Arcade’s first—and only—paying customer and the idea for a film was born. Through social media and a collaboration of friends and strangers, Nirvan organized a surprise flash mob of customers for Caine’s Arcade, giving Caine what he told his dad was “the best day of my whole life.”

In June 2011, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas let the world in on a secret he had carried with him since he was 16 years old. In a NY Times Magazine piece, Jose came out of the closet for the second time, as an undocumented immigrant. Born in the Philippines, his mother, wanting to give her son a better life, sent him to live in America with his grandparents in 1993. “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant” stunned the media and political circles and attracted worldwide coverage. One year later, his follow-up article was the cover of TIME Magazine, hitting newsstands on the same day President Obama signed his executive order that stopped the deportation of the young undocumented immigrants who are dubbed “The Dreamers.” This second “coming out” has changed Jose’s life forever. Helping other undocumented immigrants share their stories, he runs Define American, a non-profit organization that seeks to elevate the conversation around immigration.

Tom DeLuca Voted Entertainer of the Year for four years by colleges across the country, Tom DeLuca opens the windows to the imagination by combining the power of suggestion with his volunteers' innate creativity. Tom was also voted Performing Artist of the Year. From small private colleges where hundreds attend to the University of Virginia, where more than 7,000 fans flock to see him on a regular basis, Tom is the biggest draw on college campuses. The Tom DeLuca Show is often imitated but never replicated – all hypnosis shows are not the same. Tom is original, SAFE, educated (master’s in psychology) and always innovative. National media agree that Tom presents hypnosis like no one else in the world! He is the only college performer to be featured on NBC's Dateline as well as the front page of The Wall Street Journal. His has appeared on daytime talk shows (Maury Povich, CNN, MTV, Showbiz Today, ABC News, PBS' Charlie Rose) and has been featured in articles in Rolling Stone and People magazines. Tom’s show is the only hypnosis show that is popular and appropriate for both college campuses and the general public. What sets it apart from others is that it gives the audience insight into common traits that we all share. “His approach is to forgo the gimmickry in order to reveal the fun and wonder hidden in the attics of his volunteers’ minds. There are moments of joy and happiness on stage”—Rolling Stone Magazine. With Tom's show, hypnosis truly goes beyond entertainment – to reveal how powerful people's imaginations can be. “The results of Tom's show are fascinating, hilarious, at times even poignant. Don't miss him”—The New York Post

Not Black enough for another. But, funny is funny. Right? “We are here to celebrate our individualism. Our motto: Be yourself. Because everybody else is already taken. Join us as we chip at the walls of racial and social stereotypes.” The comedians of Sellout! have been featured on: HBO, Comedy Central, CBS, NBC, A&E, Showtime, UPN, MTV, ESPN, VH1, FOX and B.E.T.

David Kirton David Kirton is an award-winning singer-songwriter from the Caribbean island of Barbados. Now transplanted to Los Angeles, David tours the US and the Caribbean islands regularly. He has developed his own unique sound embodying the best of old reggae rhythms from his culture and background, but meshing modern lyrics and guitar-driven vocals. It’s soul, reggae, rock and pop all fused into one sound. Kirton says, “It was roots reggae that captured my senses rather than the dancehall that became popular these last few years.” In 1999, he debuted with a Midem Cannes showcase in France on World Beat Night, and he was invited in 2011 to perform as part of a unique Barbados-artists showcase at the NACA® National Convention in St. Louis, MO, where he thrived, booking a handful of US college performances.

Soka Kartel was formed in 2010 and, after their first official meeting, decided it was full steam ahead. As any "cartel" does, it set about to dictate the nature and climate of their soca future. Anderson "Blood" Armstrong brings years of experience, while Michael Mercer, youthful and ambitious, leads the six-member group. In its first year, the band won three titles: The Party Monarch, Soca Royale Champion and Road March. In 2011, the band won its second Party Monarch competition, this time by Kartel member Mikey. The year 2012 saw the first-ever hat trick by any group or individual win, with Mikey retaining the Party Monarch title. Not only did he do that, he went on to win three more titles: The Sweet Soca Monarch, People’s Monarch and Road March. With a spectacular and energetic show, Soka Kartel is set to have a big bright future ahead.

Jonathan Burns Jonathan Burns always thought he was “special.” He was the kind of kid who would put his leg over his head at the family reunion or perform musical armpit farts to impress the girls. In 2004, contorting his body and impressing people with his unusual talents became his full-time job. Since then, he has performed at more than 200 colleges and universities, at events across the US, Canada, China, Ireland and New Zealand, and was recently featured on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman. "Extremely Funny."—The New York Times "One whimsical, smart, and engaging package."—Nebraska Wesleyan University "Just a little bit crazy, and hilariously funny."—Campus Activities Magazine

Michael Kent Comedian and magician Michael Kent succeeds at changing the old saying that “nobody likes a smartass.” He gives the ancient art of magic a facelift with an irreverent and often satirical comedic spin that seems to let the audience “in on the joke.” This style has made Michael one of the college market’s most popular comedy-magicians, earning him loyal fans around the country in the process, along with multiple Campus Activities Awards nominations – including “Best New Rising Star” and “2012 Entertainer of the Year.” As he tours college campuses all over the country, Michael’s audiences are experiencing what it’s like when a standup comic performs (and occasionally pokes fun at) the art of magic.

Although raised outside of Havana, Alex Cuba’s artistry is as far-flung as the place he settled: Smithers, BC, 14 hours north of Vancouver. His music incorporates his roots in these divergent places and is a unique amalgam of styles. He’s a ringer for the Afro-sporting Sly Stone of the ‘60s, collaborates with peers ranging from Nelly Furtado and Jason Mraz to Ron Sexsmith, and brings together melodies, pop-soul hooks and rock chords in songs that stray far from any traditional Cuban form. An energetic live performer, he regularly tours Canada, the US and Europe in clubs and concert halls, singing in Spanish and English. A forward-thinking, indie-minded artist who owns his masters and releases his music on his own label, Alex has amassed a steadily growing following. His 2010 self-titled album, Alex Cuba, won him Canada’s first Latin Grammy for New Artist of the Year. He has crafted and recorded 16 new tracks to create Ruido En El Sistema/Static in the System, released October 2012, a genre bending cross-cultural blend of Alex’s Cuban roots and his place in a new global culture.

Logan Mize is a name that country music fans will be hearing a lot of. The talented singer-songwriter left behind a football career for Nashville and hasn’t looked back. He’s not worried about getting his name in big lights or becoming the next superstar. He just wants to make music that can be heard and appreciated. His recently released Nobody In Nashville record struck a chord with country music fans by debuting at 49 on the Billboard Country Music Chart, a remarkable feat for an independent artist. The past few years, Logan has sold out shows across the Midwest and has opened for Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley, and Billy Currington. Recently, Logan joined CMA Entertainer of the Year Blake Shelton on his Caribbean Cruise, the largest country music event to ever set sail, joining artists Trace Adkins, Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, and Easton Corbin.

Son of the founder of the terrorist organization Hamas, Mosab Hassan Yousef didn’t question what he had known from birth: to hate his enemy, the Israelis. But when imprisoned by the Israeli government at age 18, Mosab witnessed the vicious torture and hatred on both sides of the conflict and began to wonder who his enemy really was. That prompted an unbelievable decision. Mosab became a spy for the Israelis under the code name “Green Prince.” He worked as a double agent within Hamas for 10 years and was a vital intelligence asset for the Israeli government while working alongside his father within the upper ranks of Hamas. Putting his own life in severe danger, Mosab thwarted suicide bombings, assassinations and brought down key Hamas leaders. His incredible true story was published in the NY Times bestseller Son of Hamas. Mosab tells his courageous story and challenges audiences to question who their preconceived personal enemies are and embrace the practices of tolerance and acceptance.

Colt Ford is back with his best album ever, Declaration of Independence, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart and at No. 4 on the Top 200. After selling a combined 750,000 albums and more than two million singles over his first three albums, and co-writing the mega hits “Dirt Road Anthem” (Jason Aldean) and “Country Is Countrywide” (Brantley Gilbert), as well as performing more than 750 shows the last three years, Colt has turned into a major force in the music business. The former professional golfer has also written themes for the PBR and hosted a show on the Outdoor Channel, Mudslingers. The fact that Colt Ford is hard to categorize is exactly why he’s been successful. With a blend of country and hip-hop, he is a true original. Perhaps it’s that sense of not belonging that allows Colt to connect to his blue-collar fans.

In less than a year, they went from unknowns to performing as the headliners at the world famous Comedy Club on Melrose Avenue.

I’m Not A Pilot’s success as one of Milwaukee’s major bands results from their unique instrumentation. Their music can best be described as a cross between chamber pop and rock n’ roll mixed with symphonic sounds and structure. All songs are written and constructed around front man Mark Glatzel’s vocal melodies and intricate piano work. Peter Thomas, also a cellist in the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, adds bursts of energy through his guitar-simulated electric cello playing. Adrian Esguerra anchors the harmonic framework on bass guitar with cleverly picked rhythms, and textures. On drums, the sound is elevated by Steve Vorass, whose talent adds the dynamic quality in the band’s music. According to Bobby Tanzillo of OnMilwaukee.com, I’m Not A Pilot “conjures both Queen and Keane, thanks to an almost baroque arrangement that recalls Freddie Mercury and Tom Chaplin.” INP gets asked by major music festivals and venues to perform with audiences growing fast.

Justin is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston and currently resides in Los Angeles. He does not own a rabbit.

Darling Parade is a female-fronted rock/pop band from Nashville, TN.

Their latest EP, Until We Say It’s Over, brought that point home by grabbing No. 8 on Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart the week of its release. The music video for “Never Wrong” was featured by VH1, Cool TV, MTV Latin America, and MTVu (and also won MTVu’s Freshman contest and was top 5 in rotation on the channel).

Ryan started life in a small, beautiful potato farming community in Idaho called Ashton. While spending his youth doing things like sleeping in a tree house, riding his bike to the drug store for milkshakes, and living out other Norman Rockwell paintings, he often dreamed of becoming a late-night talk show host (or a secret agent, or Ferris Bueller, or Spider Man, or a combination, if at all possible). He won the MVP award for “The Comedy Leagues” competition at the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival and the Sierra Mist’s “America’s Next Great Comic Search.”

2013 NACA® NATIONAL CONVENTION

Pittsburgh singer-songwriter Brooke Annibale combines earthy vocals, insightful lyrics and acoustic pop-folk sounds to create dynamic and engaging performances. Vocally, she has a smoky quality similar to John Mayer and employs a pleasing thickness and pitch that are reminiscent of Natalie Merchant. Her lyrics bleed with an uncommon wisdom for a 25-year-old, as the tales she tells about love, loss, faith and finding yourself are simultaneously deeply personal and wholly universal in their application. Brooke’s third album, Silence Worth Breaking, is her most well-rounded effort yet, featuring dreamy folk-pop, radio-ready pop-rock, edgy groove-rock and even some stripped down numbers where it’s largely her and her acoustic guitar. Brooke’s music is loaded with life and gravitas, and her confidence and thought-provoking lyrics will leave you wanting to hear more when she’s done.

With lips from any ghetto you choose and words spoken to save her own life, this Gully Princess by the name of Ebony Stewart is the only adult female Three Time Slam Champion (2007, 2009, 2011) in Austin, TX. She has shared the stage with Amiri Baraka, been voted Slam Artist of the Year by National Poetry Awards, nominated top eight in Austin’s MUST SEE, and was one of the leading members of the Austin Neo-Soul slam team in 2010 (ranked fourth in the nation). She also co-coached the Neo-Soul slam team, taking them all the way to first place in Group Piece Finals in 2012. Poetry is where Ebony Stewart goes to make things right.

Dave Patten is unlike any musician you’ve ever seen before. This 24-year-old singer/songwriter writes, mixes, masters, produces and directs all of his music and music videos. Just releasing his seventh album in five years, this Philadelphia singer/songwriter produces everything you hear on his albums. Rarely does a musician have the ability and talent to synchronize each aspect of his tracks to the exact specifications of his creative vision. Dave’s vocals alone make him a standout. His rock-style voice, fused with his songwriting, sets him apart from the multitude of like-sounding musicians. His YouTube videos garner more than 35 million page views. His track record of 5/5 music videos submitted and accepted to MTV Networks has landed him not only exposure on MTV, but also a licensing deal with the network. His video “Believe Me,” featuring rapper Meek Mill, has 2.3 million views, alone. His video “Miserable” won Best Music Video in the Long Island International Film Festival 2012 and he is currently filming a movie with Vince Vaughn.

Lebanese American, born in Oakland, CA, Sammy Obeid applies his UC Berkeley double major in business and mathematics to bringing laughter to the nation. Recently appearing on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, advancing to the Las Vegas round, Sammy’s style has been described as “intelligent,” “inspiring” and “a youthful perspective that reaches all ages.” Blending his education and love for being the life of the party, Obeid discusses “hip” social trends in a critical, yet hilarious way, making him a favorite at colleges. As the youngest member of the national tours CoExist Comedy and the Axis of Evil New Generation, Sammy has worked with Robin Williams, Russel Peters, Dana Carvey and more. He is also the first comedian to ever appear on the Food Network telling jokes.

When you see that look in Brett Young’s baby blues, it isn’t too hard to understand what took this California boy from a ball field to the recording studio. His gritty vocals and impassioned lyrics are built on the same firm foundation that had him as a pre-draft selection of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays straight out of high school – hard work, sheer talent and that thing music industry execs and baseball talent scouts alike simply call heart. Those same qualities have gotten Brett’s songs placed on television shows like MTV’s The Real World and Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and on some of the most well-known stages – The Roxy, The Troubador, and The Viper Room – sharing those stages with some of pop music’s best and brightest, from Colbie Caillat to Gavin DeGraw and Katy Perry.

The NBC Stand-Up for Diversity College Tour 2013 is part of a continuing effort on the part of NBC to discover more comedic voices from a variety of diverse backgrounds. NBC began the Stand-Up for Diversity talent search nine years ago and, through this initiative, dozens of up-and-coming comedians have been launched on their way to stardom.

Vladimir Caamaño www.laughingvlad.com With the name Vladimir, few people expect a Dominican from the Bronx to take the stage. His experience is the fruit of an immigrant Dominican family living in the cultural mecca that is New York City. Raised in the Bronx and Washington Heights, Vladimir began polishing his wit while attending Wesleyan University (CT). Whether he is discussing his grandfather who fathered 43 kids, talking about going to college without luggage, or telling stories of his outrageous family, you will enjoy watching this artist weave a hilarious fabric of truth and absurdity. Vladimir is a regular at all the New York City Comedy clubs: Comic Strip Live, Ha Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club, and Caroline’s. He is also a Diversity Scholarship Winner at The People’s Improv Theater, where he is also taking writing courses. In 2010, Vladimir was a finalist in Gilda’s Laugh Festival and, in 2011, he was a quarterfinalist at the Laughing Skull Festival.

MONDAY, FEB. 18 David Smithyman

Arvin Mitchell

www.davidsmithyman.com Failing to ever fulfill his true potential as an Australian child actor, David Smithyman moved to New York City in 2004 to attend NYU and become a playwright. Instead, he moved to Brooklyn, started doing stand-up and realized he actually really hated plays. He currently teaches stand-up comedy to awkward teenagers at Gotham Comedy Club as part of the Kids ’n Comedy program and was recently awarded a Literary Classics International Children’s Book Award.

www.arvinmitchell.com St. Louis’ own Arvin Mitchell has hit the comedy scene running since his debut on BET’s Coming to the Stage in 2003.

His television appearances have helped him become one of the hottest comedians requested on the college circuit. Arvin’s comedic style appeals to both urban and mainstream audiences worldwide. He continues to hone his craft by working the comedy club circuit in New York and Los Angeles that include Comic Strip Live, Boston Comedy Club, Irvine Improv Room, The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store.

Rob Haze robhaze.tumblr.com In a short amount of time, Rob Haze has become a rising star in stand-up comedy. The Atlanta native began his stand up journey while studying political science at the University of Georgia. There he would host and perform at many talent shows, pageants and step shows. He went on to win the Athens Last Comic Standing contest. Robert moved back to his hometown, Atlanta, to further his comedy career. With a sense of humor that is full of both clever wordplay and references to popular culture, there is no wonder why Rob has become a favorite at the Laughing Skull Lounge, Punchline and Uptown Comedy Corner. Rob uses his gift to help others, as well; in 2012, he won the Autism Laughs charity competition. He also was a writer and star of a (local) sketch comedy show called Cabbagetown. In 2012, Rob began to branch out from the Southeast and was a finalist in the Bay Area Black Comedy Competition in Oakland, California. There are no racial or age limits to Rob’s comedy, as he likes to bring people together rather than tear them apart.

Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (Host) www.lilrel.com Chicago native Milton “Lil Rel” Howery recently was cast for the re-boot of the return of In Living Color to FOX television.

His comedic performances on BET's Comic View, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, and Showtime at the Apollo all garnered standing ovations by the audiences, a feat rarely seen accomplished by many performers.

He has been handpicked by comedian heavyweights Damon Wayans, D.L. Hughley, Chris Tucker, Kat Williams and Bill Bellamy to tour the country. When not touring with other comedians, Sylvince is a wanted commodity at college campuses everywhere. His versatility to work clean as well as edgy make him one of the nation's top booked college comedians. His work definitely speaks for itself, leaving audiences in amazement and always wanting more. Wil Sylvince is definitely a rising star worth keeping an eye on.

Jon Laster With skill and determination, Jon Laster swiftly paid his dues and worked his way to now being one of America’s leading comedians. After leaving a lifetime of basketball, including High School All-American status and Division 1 college basketball, Jon jumped into comedy. In less than five years, he has worked some of the most popular and well-respected rooms across the country, including New York's Caroline's and the Boston Comedy Club, and Comedy Works in his hometown of Denver. Jon also hosts his own weekly comedy night in Brooklyn, NY, where he currently resides. He recently appeared at Laphapalooza in Atlanta, GA. He has appeared on BET's The Best of Comic View every season for the past three years and is currently expanding his horizons in film and television. When asked what he wants for his audience, Jon replies, "My goal is to make people feel good and forget about or at least laugh at life's pressures, even if just for a few minutes."

In a music world where genre lines are increasingly blurred, Dinner And A Suit has emerged with a sonic meld that resonates with familiarity and captivates with distinction. Formed in New Jersey by cousins Jonathan Capeci, Joey Beretta and Anthony Genca, the three looked to their lineage for a musical namesake. During the Great Depression, the trio’s great grandmother was a seamstress by day and community humanitarian by night, welcoming the less fortunate into her home to feed home-cooked meals and then send off with newly repaired suits and clothing. Since their formation in 2009, Dinner And A Suit has gained critical acclaim, a swelling dedication of global fans, and coveted live dates that have circled the band throughout the US. This led to their transplant to Nashville in 2010, where they are now working with music legends.

TUESDAY, FEB. 19 First Generation Students: Can Involvement Replace Parents? First-generation college students enter higher education facing some unique academic and social challenges, any one of which could prompt them to leave college before earning a degree. Parents of these students may be unable to provide critical support when their children need it most, during the first year. This session reviews factors that impact first-generation student persistence, examines the role parents play relative to these, and highlights involvement in campus activities and other institutional approaches to address a possible lack of parental support among this population. Presenter(s): Dr. Steve Westbrook, Vice President for University Affairs, Stephen F. Austin State University (TX) Audience: Staff, Students Level: Intermediate Room: NCC 105 Inquiry vs. Offer vs. Contract – How to Conduct Business in the Music Industry There is a rumor going around the university programming community that a confirmed offer is not binding without a signed contract. While your university legal department may tell you this is true, this is NOT how the entertainment industry views offers. Hear from a panel of agents, middle agents, and lawyers that want to help you and your campus succeed in the entertainment industry.

A lilting, sunny tune about an ideal romance, “Loving You Tonight” helped put Andrew on tour with acts like The Script, Bruno Mars, One Republic, Train, Joshua Radin and The Barenaked Ladies, with the official music video garnering more than three million views!

TUESDAY, FEB. 19 Jon Aanestad The College Agency Booths 503-505 Attraction’s Present Price: ......................................$1,500 + SLRM Special Convention Price/Single Date: ................$1,250 + SLRM 3 dates/5 days:..........................................................$1,000 + SLRM 5 dates/7 days: ............................................................$900 + SLRM Contract On-Site Discount: ......................................................N/A

Jon Aanestad, a soul/pop/folk songwriter and leader of the band The Sugarcane, from Boston, MA, has turned to an edgier pop-rock sound as of late, honing in on his songs that are closer to the bone—still very accessible and commercially viable, but more visceral. Solo and full band, Jon is focusing his irreverent pop sound and taking on arrangements that fuse modern pop, old-school soul and contemporary folk. As a solo artist and multi-instrumentalist, Jon has toured nationally, performed for corporate clients such as Gap, Converse and the Minnesota Twins at Target Field, and has performed on the CMA Awards in Nashville, TN, which were broadcast on ABC. Jon has also gained a devoted fan base on YouTube with his original material and his quirky covers of everyone from Justin Bieber to The Black Keys.

The Last Bison The Agency Group Booths 305-307 Attraction’s Present Price:............$5,000 + RM Special Conv. Price/Single Date: $5,000 + RM 3 dates/5 days: ................................$3,500 + RM 5 dates/7 days: ................................$2,500 + RM Contract On-Site Discount: ........................N/A

The Last Bison is anything but typical. The seven-member ensemble led by Ben Hardesty has seemingly risen from the marshes of southeastern Virginia to captivate the national music scene with a rare blend of folk that is poetically steeped in classical influences. Their selfdescribed “mountain-top chamber” sound has drawn flattering, though imperfect, comparisons to indie rock superstars the likes of which include Mumford & Sons and The Decemberists. Flattering because those bands have carried folk rock into the mainstream; imperfect because none of them have a front man that shares the stage with his father and sister, nor uses a 75-yearold chaplain’s pump organ and Bolivian goat toenails on stage. The Last Bison’s live shows transport audiences from urban music halls to another, less familiar, era. Rich melodies accent unabashedly spiritual lyrics. Traditional folk instruments resonate with unexpected arrangements – sharing the musical space with lush family harmonies, classical strings and earthy percussion.

Journalist, Commentator, Sports Writer LZ Granderson to Offer Convention Keynote "Boxes are for shoes" is the mantra award-winning columnist and TV pundit LZ Granderson lives by. African-American, openly-gay, Christian and a father, the diversity of Granderson's work – from sports, education and race to politics, parenting and dating – has made him one of the most popular online columnists for both CNN and ESPN. Granderson started off as a poor, skinny kid from Detroit – and at one point was involved in criminal activity – but he always believed where a person started didn't have to dictate where a person finished. Granderson was named Journalist of the Year by the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association. In addition to his weekly online columns, he appears frequently on CNN Newsroom with Don Lemon and has appeared on Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien.

ZZ Ward burst onto the scene this year with an eclectic mix tape, Eleven Roses, setting the tone for her unique blues-meets-hip-hop artistry and the reaction was palpable. The praise continued with Ward’s fulllength debut, Til The Casket Drops, and while Ward had the help of an impressive list of acclaimed producers and collaborators, Til The Casket Drops is all ZZ Ward. The talented artist wrote the majority of the 13 stellar tracks and leaves an indelible mark on each. After making her SXSW debut this year, Ward toured with Allen Stone and Fitz and the Tantrums, and is currently on her first headline tour, selling out shows in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Live, Ward’s gritty blues-soaked, hip-hop-inspired repertoire explodes as her dynamic vocals captivate with a force.

Katie Wirsing has never been big on small talk. Or backward thinking. Firmly believing the mouth is a speakerbox to whatever makes your heart sing most, she has opera lungs and a getaway car for anyone willing to pick up and move forward. Never afraid of the difficult truths, Katie has toured her way to stages around the world, speaking on issues from gender, love, sexuality and spirituality to Jell-O wrestling and her grandmother’s love of hot dogs. A member of the 2006 National Poetry Slam Championship team and Denver representative at the Women of the World Poetry Slam, Katie’s work has been featured on college campuses across the country, as well as on NPR, the BBC and countless local radio stations. She performed as the opening act for The Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and AquaGirl, a queer woman’s festival, as well as being the poetic voice on a national commercial.

Los Angeles’ Robert DeLong – a singer, songwriter, producer, programmer and drummer – is the perfect artist to bring electronic dance music to Glassnote, home of Mumford & Sons, Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix and more. A one-man futuristic dance party with beats as cerebral as Orbital and clubready as Calvin Harris, DeLong is also a profoundly gifted singer/songwriter who raises questions about identity and spirituality. Those elements join together on Just Movement, his debut album due out in January – a dazzling collection of dance beats, pop hooks and thought-provoking queries that could very well be the soundtrack for 2013. On the live front, DeLong has a toolbox of Wii-motes, keyboards, and drums to develop a live rock show that CMJ claims worthy of “an 8-bit warrior, seamlessly creating danceable electro beats with his Wii Remote and Sega Genesis controller on par with the Chemical Brothers.” He uses MIDI interfaces, a full drum set, drum pads, keyboards, laptops and game controllers, looping his music live to fuse electronic dance beats with striking melodies and lyrics with emotional heart.

Red Wanting Blue, proudly based in Columbus, OH, could be America’s local band. For years, the group has logged thousands of miles throughout the nation’s heartland, making new fans one at a time. Leader Scott Terry’s passionate, poetic songs, anchored by his powerful baritone, are the kinds of tunes that could have only been written by a man who has lived on the road. Traveling with Terry are band mates Mark McCullough (bass, vocals), Greg Rahm (keys, guitars, vocals), Eric Hall Jr. (guitars, vocals) and Dean Anshutz (drums), who together build the unshakable rock powerhouse that supports Terry’s big voice. As Red Wanting Blue’s touring has increased, and with a recent appearance on David Letterman, the band is seeing its following grow, as well. From The Vanishing Point, the band’s first album recorded for a label (Fanatic Records, distributed by EMI/Caroline), sheds some of Red Wanting Blue’s small-town sensibilities as it evolves into the world-class outfit audiences have believed in for years.

“Let’s go see a poetry show.” That is a sentence rarely proclaimed and usually responded to with cringes and excuses. The Mayhem Poets are on a mission to change that. Having been dubbed “an amazing ride” by The New York Times, this mind-boggling performance has been described as “The Simpsons meets Malcolm X at a Notorious B.I.G. concert.” These theatre-trained, comedically gifted, lyrical virtuosos seamlessly blend raw elements of hip-hop, theatre, improv and stand-up comedy to tell gut-wrenching truths that leave audiences forever changed.

She may look like a nice Southern belle, as she is a proud native of Arkansas, but don’t be confused. There is a razor-sharp wit behind her debutante smile that can carve you up quicker than her mom can shoot whiskey. Lauren is a nationally touring headliner at both clubs and colleges across the country. Campus Activities Magazine named her a 2009 up-andcoming comic and 2010 hot comic to watch. She has gone on two overseas tours to entertain the troops and can be seen in an upcoming movie with Margaret Cho and David Alan Grier: Thugs, the Musical. You might recognize Lauren from one of the numerous national commercials she made you laugh in this year: Mini Baby Bel Cheese, Arby’s “Birthday Surprise,” or performing standup comedy for Midol’s newest campaign.

In the past three years, Kurt Scobie has performed in seven NACA showcases, provided music for the Atlanta Braves, and opened for the Grammy-winning duo The Civil Wars. And this is only the beginning. With more than 200 performances each year, Kurt travels across the United States delivering unforgettable live music experiences at colleges and premier live music venues. He is currently touring in support of his new EP, The Hopeful Broken, which was released in July 2012. When he isn’t wowing audiences with his catchy, percussive, piano-driven rock/pop style, Kurt can be found perfecting his craft beer snobbery, eating at one of his favorite Atlanta sushi places, or running very long distances. You can follow Kurt on Twitter and Facebook and at www.kurtscobie.com.

Three years ago, someone stole two vintage 1960s Gibson guitars out of Jeff Conley’s car after a show. With a full schedule, he needed to continue playing, but could not afford to purchase or spend years looking for those vintage Gibson guitars. Jeff decided to try to build instead of buy. Since then, playing and building only homemade guitars and drums has become a passion. Scouring antique shops and auctions, Jeff finds parts to build his own instruments. Every guitar and instrument he builds uses parts and pieces that have stories, a history of their own. He's shared the stage with acts such as Bela Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer, Rusted Root, The Rustic Overtones, State Radio, the members of Dispatch, The Ryan Montbleau Band, Barefoot Truth, Will Dailey & The Rivals and many more.

Amidst today’s throng of singer-songwriters, something makes Ohio’s own JD Eicher stand out as a polished musician. His stage presence is lighthearted and engaging and there is striking honesty in his voice – all these things play a role. His unique pop/rock radiates with strong melodies, meaningful lyrics and poignant dynamics that draw the listener closer as he earns the friendship of those in the audience. “It’s so important to me that I believe in the words I’m singing and that I connect with the audience,” says Eicher. Last year, he released his critically acclaimed album, The Shape of Things, and began performing full time. He’s been on the road making those connections ever since. College and university venues stand among the many shows Eicher already has under his belt. He’s opened for Grammy-winning artists Coldplay, Rod Stewart, and Bryan Adams along the way. Still in his early 20s, he leaves audiences smiling and thinking at the same time.

The Well Reds have notched their place in the Atlanta rock scene with an alternative take on pop-rock that mixes clean live guitar tones and piano with indelible vocal melodies and acute lyric sensibility. Live shows are punctuated by powerful harmonies, detailed instrumentation, and a high level of group musicianship that sees the boys as confident with an acoustic set as they are playing a plugged-in-amped-up-rock show. Since their inception in 2008, The Well Reds have performed throughout the Southeast, sharing bills with Minus The Bear, Automatic Love Letter, A Cursive Memory, Transmit Now, Lights Resolve, and The Friday Night Boys, among others. Multiple cuts from their new EP, Violet, are receiving coverage nationally while being utilized in a variety of traditional and digital media outlets. The band also won the New Music Seminar 2011 Live At Roxy Competition.

Taylor Berrett is a singer-songwriter based in Northern Virginia who has recently signed with SRP, the production company that discovered and signed Rihanna. He is most influenced by the great artists whose focus was always on carefully crafted songs, especially Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, the Elton John/Bernie Taupin team and, more recently, Chris Martin of Coldplay. Berrett’s music can be described as a wide-ranging blend of introspective acoustic folk, soul-and-R&B-influenced grooves and sunny-tinted up-tempo pop. Like the classic artists he strives to emulate, Berrett is always in pursuit of a great song, regardless of genre or style. And his lack of strict stylistic guidelines is the audience’s gain, as a typical performance is an everchanging musical ride from start to finish.

On March 19, 2009, Lt. Dan Choi, a West Point graduate and Iraq veteran fluent in Arabic, announced he was gay on The Rachel Maddow Show. Because of three words – “I am gay” – Lt. Choi’s life changed forever. Despite his extreme value as an Arabic speaker able to communicate quickly and clearly with the Iraqi people, one month after his announcement, he was notified the Army had begun discharge proceedings against him. He was one of only eight soldiers from his graduating class who majored in Arabic. After protests, petitions and hard work, Lt. Choi fought for the eventual repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Lt. Choi continues to advocate for full LGBT civil rights and veterans’ health. He has served as Grand Marshal of the San Francisco, New York City, Miami and Wichita LGBT Pride Parades, appeared frequently on national and international news programs, and serves on the boards of Marriage Equality USA and the American Foundation for Equal Rights. He is a graduate of the US Army Scout Leaders Course, Air Assault School, and Parachutist School.

The Gulf of Mexico BP disaster has faded from the news, but its environmental and economic impact will be felt greatly in coming decades. The real story is only just beginning. Tom McPhee, filmmaker, activist and director of World Animal Awareness Society, has had unprecedented access in the Gulf and at the site of Japan’s Fukushima disaster, beyond where news cameras have been allowed. In its work in animal rescues from man-made and natural disasters, his foundation has kept the cameras rolling and amassed footage from environmental experts.

Jim Keady shares his journey to end Nike’s sweatshop abuses. It began at St. John’s University (NY) when Keady resigned as assistant soccer coach of the NCAA Division-1 champions in protest of the school’s $3.5 million dollar endorsement deal with Nike. In an attempt to put a human face on the Nike sweatshop debate, Keady moved to the slums of Indonesia to live with Nike factory workers and try to survive on their sweatshop wages. Keady has spent more than a decade crisscrossing the country, speaking on hundreds of campuses, educating and motivating students to get involved in the campaign to transform Nike’s sweatshops into factories where workers make a living wage and are treated with dignity. This interactive multi-media presentation includes PowerPoint, role-playing, and powerful video footage. To learn more, visit: www.facebook.com/teamsweat. Twitter: @TeamSweat

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 Doug Brown, singer-guitarist. It wasn’t long before this budding Tulsa, OK, band began drawing 1000-plus 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.

Formed in the midst of a Tennessee winter, The Real Good Feel Goods combine ‘70s Soul and acoustic R&B to create an unmistakable sound. From small beginnings to energetic shows across the United States, this soul duo is quickly gaining momentum. Rachel grew up performing in Nashville and inherited her rhythm and blues style as a regular artist at the B.B. King’s Blues Club off of Broadway. Although growing up in Detroit, MI, Simon now makes Nashville his home. Working with artists from coast to coast, he is a local producer and international touring musician. With an adoration for bands like The Temptations and artists like Etta James, they combine a modern edge with a soulful take on that Motown music everyone loves.

Shock T’s are a comedy band based in Chicago. Formed in 2009, they have performed in comedy clubs and musical venues and at festivals and colleges across the country. Tim, Tyler and Sarah are three comedians with a passion for music, leading them to the creation of The Shock T’s: a oneof-a-kind experience that leaves audiences cheering for more. Their style has been compared to Flight of the Concords, Bo Burnham, and the Lonely Island. With catchy riffs and a multitude of styles, the three singers tackle all kinds of topics with honesty.

Even before the release of their first major label record, the guys in The Rouge have already lived an epic rock ‘n’ roll tale, one filled with incredible highs, humbling depths and everything in between. And their journey – from near homelessness to the verge of stardom – was an absolute necessity, if you ask the band. “You can hear everything we went through in our first single,” says vocalist Josh Vaught, discussing “Pressure,” a song off the band’s soon-to-be-released Atlantic Records debut, Blurry. “The chorus goes, ‘Hey pressure/Leave us alone/All we need is rock ‘n’ roll.’ Very simple. But it’s us about playing the kind of music we want to play, doing things our way, and not worrying about what everyone else thinks.” The band plans to hit the road in 2013 to showcase the new songs … and show that, maturity or not, they can still cause a ruckus on stage.

Born Boris Rogers, Bluz is a connoisseur of poetic expression, channeling the human experience eloquently into gifts of metaphors and similes. As slam master and coach of a team of competitive poets called Slam Charlotte, Bluz led his team to victory in 2007 and 2008. He is ranked 13th in the world and won two 2010 Emmys. He is the author of the book Articulate Slang and has produced three audio releases. Among his many noteworthy accomplishments and performances, Bluz has participated in projects and appearances for Junior Achievement, Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, Blumenthal Performing Art Center, The Afro-American Cultural Center, Wachovia and Bank of America. Major radio and television network performances include HBO’s Def Poetry, CBS Radio, Radio Disney, ESPN, Speed TV, BET, and the first induction ceremony for the NASCAR Hall Of Fame.

Marly DuMarz was raised by his grandparents in a Jamaican household in Alexandria, VA, and Caribbean culture became a huge influence on him and his music. Marly's father was a popular deejay in the DC area and would spin at parties all throughout town. Meanwhile, Marly was at home familiarizing himself with his father's selection of music and equipment. This was the foundation for one of the most talented unsigned artists today. Combined with his mother's love for good, soulful music, Marly has become the perfect mix of musical talent. Marly’s talent has turned him into a local celebrity. Now, he is focused on sharing his music and his message of peace with the rest of the world. His ability to transition seamlessly from rap to soulful R&B, and even to reggae within the same breath, is a skill that is seemingly impossible until you hear it for yourself!

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 and rock to gospel and 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.
