On Thursday, Jan. 29, The Music Alliance (TMA) hosted its first live performance of the semester in the Rebecca Stafford Student Center. The show featured a performance by a new act on campus, a rock band called The Unknown. They played a set that included a combination of covers and original compositions.
The Music Alliance is Monmouth University’s student-run organization for live music and events. TMA is the sister organization of Blue Hawk Records, Monmouth’s student-run record label. The organization provides artists and musicians of a wide variety of genres for events on and off campus, as well as hosting their own shows.
This is the first of a semester long string of showcase performances hosted on campus by TMA. These showcases are a continuation of the showcases the Alliance has held in previous semesters, featuring many different artists within the Monmouth University student population.
The Alliance also hosts shows off campus at venues such as the Brighton Bar, where it is having its end of the year blowout show on April 16.
TMA was founded in 2012 by student Andrew Boxman to help give artists on campus opportunities to play live shows, as well as to provide performers for on campus events hosted by other organizations.
