The Band Perry to headline Spring Fest
SA announces acts including Gloriana and Citizen Cope
The Student Association announced The Band Perry, Gloriana and Citizen Cope will perform May 2 for Spring Fest.
SA posted the finalized lineup on its website Monday afternoon. The concert will either be held in Alumni Arena or in its parking lot, depending on the weather.
The Band Perry is a Tennessee trio led by Kimberly Perry on guitar and vocals, alongside her siblings Reid and Neil.
The group is a popular country band and is known for its songs "If I Die Yong" and "You Lie." The band performed at last year's Super Bowl pregame party and serves as mentors on NBC's show "The Voice."
Gloriana wrote and produced two albums, a self-titled album, Gloriana, and A Thousand Miles Left Behind.
Six of the group's songs have been listed on the top 40 of the Country Billboard Charts. "Wild at Heart" received gold status in U.S. record sales and "Kissed You Goodnight" reached platinum status.
Citizen Cope will bring a musical fusion of soul, blues, folk and rock to UB.
The solo artist's songs have been used in shows like Entourage, Scrubs and CSI: Miami. His song "Let the Drummer Kick" was featured in the 2005 movie Coach Carter.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the show starts at 6 p.m.
