Can you all believe that it has only been a month since school started? It feels like we have been here forever, especially with all of the events that have happened so far. There have been eight great MAP events, the biggest events being Friday Night Fever and Wet and Wild Field Day, and the cool thing is there are eight more awesome MAP events coming to Stevenson University this semester! There is one event in particular though that is unique in multiple ways.
This Wednesday, September 30 at 7:00 PM our Patio Jams series will continue with the vocally-blessed artist, Gary Johnson. Remember when I said that this event is unique? Ready to see why this event is unique?!
This event is unique because it is the third year in a row that Gary Johnson is performing at our school unlike any other artist. This event is unique because Gary does not come and sing his own songs, and he also does not come with prepared songs to cover like most artists. Gary performs what people ask him to play in the form of text requests! From songs like “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Theme Song” to “Wrecking Ball,” and then something like “Super Mario Theme Song,” this guy has all of the tools to entertain YOU.
Gary himself is unique, and the funny thing is that we discovered him by accident. Two years ago, MAP had booked another artist to perform for our Coffee House series who happened to get sick to the point that he could not perform. The company that he was under sent us a replacement artist who I’m sure you all have guessed is… Gary Johnson! Gary came to our school and performed well above the expectations of a “replacement artist,” heck, he performed better than most “featured artists.” He is so good that he won “Campus Activities Magazine- Musician of the Year” award in 2014!
Gary is so awesome that he saved a pack of Oreos just for our school at a conference, and then he Snapchatted us to come get it. He loves us just as much as we love him. Stevenson and Gary are destined to be together. So come out to Patio Jams this Wednesday at 7pm!
