It’s nearly December of my Senior year of college, which has made me hearken back to memories of old. The first one I’m going to post is a fairly recent memory of the first concert my friends and I were able to put on last year with some great musicians Andy Shauf, Lauris Vidal and a former Greenville College student Zach Strout.
To make a long story short, our budget for this concert fell through at the last minute and I had to email these guys and let them know that the funding wouldn’t be there and we would have to cancel the show. They told me that they had planned on coming regardless of whether they were paid and they were going to put on a killer show. This just inspired us even more and we came up with the idea of doing a bake sale with coffee where all of the funds would go towards Andy and Lauris. Doing this we raised over $100 for them. It was really cool to see a crowd of 70+ people come to the Blackroom to see two artists they have never heard of before and see them walk out smiling ear to ear. Here is a video from Zach, Andy and Lauris performing a song from that night.
