Caffeinated students bobbed their heads to live music at the latest Campus Programming Board (CPB) event.
On Thursday, Feb. 5 CPB brought two independent vocal groups to the Milligan Hub. Two Worlds and Adelee & Gentry performed throughout the evening while students sampled free hot beverages and pastries.
Two Worlds, made up of 20-year-olds Nick Voelker and Adiel Mitchell, traveled from Colorado to sing. According to the male duo, their music comes from “a background of acoustic R&B with energetic pop.”
The group also incorporates break dancing into their performances and said they have “released many innovative covers and original songs on their YouTube channel.”
The second performance of the night was given by Adelee & Gentry from Dayton, Ohio. The group consists of two sisters, ages 21 and 19. They describe their music as “a polished folk-pop sound that is grounded by a root base.”
There are samples of Adelee & Gentry’s work on YouTube.
CPB is preparing for two other events this semester. Freshman Christiana Migliacci said, “The first is Popcorn and Pix, which is when The Lego Movie will be shown. This is taking place on Feb. 26.”
At Popcorn and Pix, CPB will be announcing the performer for this year’s Bishop Bash.
“The Bishop Bash is an annual event funded by WCSA,” said Migliacci. “This consists of an on-campus concert.”
CPB has a standard scouting process for campus events.
“Basically we draw from what OWU students say they would like to see. A group of CPB members go to a conference called NACA early in the year, and see loads of performers. Then we come back and tell the rest of the CPB what we saw and liked. We then vote. Both performers at the Coffee House event were discovered at NACA,” said sophomore Maddie Oslejsek.
