On November 6th, 2010 Bob Dylan and His Band preformed in the Gordon Field House, and although the demographic that attended was mostly people our parents age, wearing their leather jackets and Grateful Dead T-shirts the show did not disappoint!
Despite the fact that Dylan is 70 years old and can't really sing or annunciate words anymore he still plays the harmonica as well as he could 50 years ago!!
Here's a quick clip of Dylan breaking down on the harmonic for your aural pleasure
And if Bob Dylan wasn't exciting enough, one week later John Legend came to the Field House and preformed for us too!!
Now, you may be wondering how we got both these fantastic performers to swing through our part of town - so let me clue you in.
Here at RIT, we have what’s commonly known as CAB or College Activities Board. CAB is an organization on campus that provides diverse entertainment and activities for our students, staff, faculty and even the general Rochester community.
CAB is broken up into eight divisions that include
Friday Night Live – live music from all over the country right on campus
Late Night Events – more live music and entertainment!
Recreation and Travel – off campus activities organized for students
Saturday Night Standup – uncensored comedy for the college crowd
Senior Events – events specifically for graduating seniors
Special Events – tailored, unique and diverse activities
Thursday Night Cinema – a weekly film screening for FREE
And of course Major Concerts – from music to standup comedy, the hottest acts from both upcoming and nationally recognized artists each quarter!
Be sure to check and re-check the Event Schedule to be sure you don’t miss any of the excitement on campus!
And for all those events you did miss, check out the Media Gallery for a recap with photos and videos!
