What could be better then spending a warm summer night at the historical Bucknell Hall listening to the captivating voices of Bucknell’s original co-ed A cappella group, Two Past Midnight?  Not only will their set list range from modern takes on Beatles’ classics to Ke$ha mash-ups, but they’ll also be releasing their new CD, "Midnight Snacks"!  Two Past Midnight is always an exciting group to see – their lively yet laid-back energy sets a lighthearted mood, but they never fail to give a killer performance.  They’re definitely a quirky bunch, and we can’t wait for a fun night of A cappella goodness this Saturday, April 27 at 8 PM  in Bucknell Hall!  Tickets are on sale this week at the CAP Center, and will also be available at the door. When speaking to Two Past Midnight’s very own beat-boxer, David Rosner (’16), he said that he’s “just really excited to show everyone what we’ve worked so hard to put together.  It’ll be a really fun, unique, and engaging show for everyone.”  Unfortunately, Two Past Midnight is saying goodbye to three seniors this year, Johnny Deltoro, Gemma Falivene, and Cody Stahl.  I spoke briefly with Johnny, asking about his thoughts on the upcoming concert and here’s what he had to say:

“We're definitely excited about this concert, especially as it coincides with our recent cd release. Our new album, "Midnight Snacks," will be coming out on that Saturday [tomorrow], and we'll be selling it for the first time at the concert. So we really want to put on a good show to set the stage for this album.

We're putting the rock voice of graduating senior, Cody Stahl, to good use in a rendition of "Ready to Go," by Panic at the Disco. We've written a new arrangement of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," by the Beatles, which will be a surprising and very different take on that classic song. We have multiple mashups featuring songs from artists, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Eta James, and Katy Perry. "Hopeless Wanderer," by Mumford and Sons, and "Give Me Love," by Ed Sheeran, will both be making an appearance as well."

Perhaps Johnny's conclusion puts it best: "Two Past strives to make every concert as exciting as possible. We will be performing a few songs that our audience has heard before, but we've worked hard to make sure that each old song has a new spin on it. We don't think anyone will be disappointed with those cameo appearances.”

With that said, we hope to you there tomorrow night!
