NSU’s Northeastern Activities Board has been planning their annual spring concert all semester. Students have anticipated the reveal and the concert lineup has finally been released.

The concert’s opening acts are Chip Collins and the Rod Robertson Band. The main performance is The Randy Rogers Band.

Chip Collins is an NSU student with a passion for performing country music. He has performed on campus on several occasions like NSU Idol and open mic nights. He is currently scheduled to perform at the reflection of the Big Event 2017.

“This is one of the biggest shows I have ever performed in,” said Collins. “I am a huge Randy Rogers fan, so the minute I got the call I knew I could not turn it down. I love performing and I am so excited to get to do it on a bigger stage now.”

The Rod Robertson Band is a red dirt country band out of Stilwell. They began in early 2015 and have since performed at venues all around Oklahoma and Arkansas.

The Randy Rogers Band is a country band from San Marcos, Texas. They have recorded seven studio albums and charted seven singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Their debut album was recorded in 2000, and the band has since traveled the country performing for their fans.

Bryan Harris is the NAB concert chair and is in charge of planning this year’s event. He is ready to see his six-month planning process come to life with a genre he thinks will appeal more to the community.

 “I’m excited for the concert because we decided to switch up genres this year to a country red dirt artist,” said Harris. “I feel like that will appeal way more to the Tahlequah community rather than last year’s hip hop/rap artist.”

Volunteers are being recruited to help out the day of the concert. 

“I am mostly excited for the cause,” said Sara Ryals, Keys freshman. “I signed up to volunteer, and I am really happy to give my time."

Student discounted tickets may be purchased from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday in the Student Engagement Office in the UC basement. These tickets are $15 cash only and cannot be purchased online. General admission tickets are available online or in the Student Engagement Office for $20.

The performance is on April 22 at the NSU Event Center. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the opening acts begins at 8:30 p.m.
