  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

LSU welcomes ‘Making the Band 4’ to homecoming

“Making the Band 4” made a special appearance at the Union on Friday night to support the Latino Student Union.

The band appeared courtesy of Philana Boles, a University graduate and publicist for the MTV-made group.

The reaction of the more than 300 students in attendance when the band performed was one of excitement and gratitude for them taking the time to come to the University.

Before the doors to the ballroom even opened, there was a line stretched all the way down the hall and past the Bowling Greenery.

When the doors opened, those in attendance were treated to DJ Flaco playing dance club songs and danced until the band showed up.

“It was awesome getting the reaction that we did,” Boles said, “I was really pleased with the kids.”

After the band arrived, they cleared an area in front of the stage and the band, coming out behind security, and performed before taking the time to take pictures with the students in attendance.

“[LSU is] known for great parties and great events.” said junior Victor Temblador, a member of LSU. “They take a lot of time with what they do and do a great job.”

Junior Adeyinka Williams, who is also a member of LSU, said she went to the event because it had a good DJ and she wanted to spend time with the her LSU family.

Laura Saavedra, president of LSU, was the student representative who received call from Boles and managed to get the entire event organized in less than two weeks.

Saavedra said this was the 35th anniversary of LSU at the University.

It was fitting that “Making the Band 4” came when it did because it is currently Latino Heritage month.

“Every year we celebrate Latino heritage month,” Saavedra said, stating this was the big event this year.

She also added that the money raised from Friday night will go toward the annual trip to the Latino Heritage Museum that LSU takes.

The rest of the money will go to other events that the group sponsors.

The band was planning on traveling to Toledo for a charity event, which is when Boles came up with the idea of adding the University to the trip.

Although it was not originally planned to be the same weekend as homecoming, it was a fortunate addition to the festivities because it was viewed as a kick-off by a lot of LSU members.

A previously planned event was scrapped in place of welcoming “Making the Band 4.”

“I’m glad we could touch these kids like we did and give them an evening they will never forget for the rest of their lives,” Boles said.
