Table Ten Ends the Early Morning Lull

When I looked at the schedule for THON 2013, I couldn’t believe there was a three hour lull in activity early Sunday morning. Luckily, after a few smaller announcements, Table Ten took the stage to end the early morning lull.

Made up of Josh Powers’ guitar and vocals, Jared Stillman’s groovy basslines, Antonio Mahokey’s percussion skills, and some guy in a white t-shirt with a black guitar (who wasn’t listed on any of their website, sorry dude), Table Ten is a State College based “Acoustic Jam Rock” band, as per their Facebook page. They’re also unique from the other groups we’ve seen preform throughout THON, as two of their members have previously danced in THON!

Providing a nice break from the constant pumped-in tunes, Table Ten opened their set with a mellow rock song that none of our OS staffers were able to recognize (or find with a Google search of the lyrics), so I’m assuming it was an original. They followed up with a nice arrangement of Toto’s classic, “Africa”, with a pulsing baseline and some nice harmonies. They quickly transitioned into “Dispatch” by The General, with The Killer’s “All These Things I’ve Done” coming right after, which seemed to engage more of the crowd. “Hey Girl” by OAR followed, followed by “You Can Call Me Al” by Paul Simon, which caused the stands to start moving with the music.

Table Ten finally got the audience participation they were looking for when they broke into their rendition of  Rusted Roots’ “Send My On My Way”, which got the entire BJC clapping along. Continuing with crowd favorites, they broke into the Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive”, featuring a tambourine solo from white shirt/black guitar guy (who traded the guitar in for the tambourine, which was also black). Rounding out their time on stage, Table Ten’s setlist included “Elias” by Dispatch, and ended with an interactive version of The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” (in which white shirt/black tambourine guy became white shirt/tan guitar guy).

While they may not have gotten the crowd quite as energetic as Total Whiteout earlier, Table Ten successfully ended the early morning lull in activity, and kicked us off for the last few hours of THON 2013!
