Lebanon Valley College Features Daystage Entertainment at ValleyFest
04.29.14 |
Every spring semester in late April, Lebanon Valley College holds its annual music and art festival, ValleyFest. The weekend long festival features art shows, and all day fair, live music, and a fun and friendly environment. Musical acts in the past have included national touring acts including Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Sammy Adams, and more. This year’s festival headliners included Love and Theft, and Mike Stud.

This year, the music entertainment during the day took a slightly different angle to the day. Starting at 10:30 a.m., music pumped from the Mund Patio stage all day and into dinner. A total of 14 bands shared the ValleyFest Daystage this year, which was a record for the event.

In years past, there have been multiple stages placed between the Social and Academic Quads. With the new configuration, students and guests were able to see all of the acts performing instead of having to chose between stages.

Revel Booking was the driving force behind the Daystage for this year’s ValleyFest. A student run business started last year, Jamey McElroy ’14 and Jack McCarthy ’14 head the company. The pair invited submissions and were overwhelmed by the interest local musicians showed. “Putting this day together has been a crazy amount of work,” says McElroy ’14. “Seeing all the bands playing, having a great time, the crowd rockin’ out, and everything running smoothly has made it worth it.”

Some of the bands that performed on the Daystage made a decent trek for the ValleyFest activities. Goodnight Brother journeyed from Marlboro, N.Y., Yellow North hailed Towson, Md., and Daystage headliner Political Party Crashers drove in two and a half hours from Toms River, N.J. for their third ValleyFest appearance. Also headlining the Daystage were The Engine Atlantic and Paradrei.

“Playing at ValleyFest has almost become a tradition for us playing for the last three years,” said James Schleper ’14, trumpet player and vocalist for Political Party Crashers. “The atmosphere is always upbeat, the people are extremely polite and good-hearted, and the music never leaves anything to be desired. This year’s ValleyFest, Daystage in particular, was the best that it has ever been and we are so happy to have been a part of it.”

ValleyFest was definitely an event not to be missed this year. With the live music provided by the Daystage, the environment was a high energy and fun for all ages. The crafts, food, games, and music combined with the beautiful weather made the whole day one to be remembered.
