This past Friday, October 7, the Student Activities Board held their Star’s and S’mores Concert on the Residential Quad for all student to come and enjoy at 7:00 p.m.
The opener for this concert was Tyler Robinson, also known as “iamteddymusic.” Tyler is on the men’s basketball team where you may recognize him as being a member of the Monmouth Bench. The concert’s headliner was the alternative band, Radnor.
The night began with the Student Activities Board setting the event up with different things to do on the quad. These things varied such as a photo booth with a cut out Instagram board; glow sticks; and of course, s’mores.
The concert began closer to 7:15, where James Ruffino, a junior Marketing major who happens to be the concerts chair on the Student Activities Board, introduced Tyler on stage. Tyler came on stage with a ton of energy and was ready to have a good night to pump up the crowd.
Many Monmouth students came out to support Tyler, as it was his first performance at Monmouth University. Tyler performed some of songs off his album Say Less: The Prequel “Barefoot”, “Krazy”, and “Move like This”. Tyler described his night as being “the most fun I have had in a while.” Right after Tyler finished his set, James Ruffino, the concerts chair on the Student Activities Board, went back on stage and congratulated Tyler on having such a great performance.
James described this as being an “awesome night and a great turnout...It was great to see Monmouth’s students participate in SAB events and see how much they enjoy it.”
Radnor, a duo band from Tennessee, began their set immediately after Tyler’s. The lead singer, Warner Carpenter, introduced himself and his drummer, Connor Hoffman, and said that this was the last show on their EP tour and are very grateful for their experience. Radnor sang songs from their albums Serenity Astray, New Perspective, and Alliance. Some of the songs sung were “Serenity”, “Forever Will Undo”, “Chemicals” and “To End Exclusion.”
Alicia Torello, the President of the Student Activities Board, stated that “Stars and S’mores is one of my favorite events we do in the fall because of the atmosphere it creates on the quad! Tyler did a fantastic job getting the crowd hyped for the extremely talented Radnor! Overall the event was a lot of fun!”
It is great to see Monmouth students come out to support their fellow hawk as well as a new and fun alternative band. The Student Activities Board advisor, Lindsay Smith, said “The weather turned out to be great for the event! The students who attended seemed to enjoy the s’mores and fire pits while listening to music.
The event was well run by SAB; the Radnor Band was also very excited to preform for the Monmouth students as well.” Please make sure to
