Table Ten To Reunite at THON 2015

After a two-year hiatus, one of State College’s favorite bar bands in recent history will return to the stage in State College. Table Ten, which formed in 2008, will reunite at THON 2015 (the time is confidential) and release a new song called “Take Hold of Now”  (get it, T.H.O.N.) dedicated to the dance marathon.

“This will be our first show since we last took the THON stage over two years ago, as we took some time off to further our professional careers,” said Table Ten member Josh Powers. “We are very excited to be playing together again and hope that the song will be enjoyed by the Penn State community who share such an affinity for the event.”

The band was formed in 2008, and although the members graduated from Penn State in 2009, they stayed around State College for a couple years to continue playing. Two members actually danced in THON, and the group’s rare State College reunion shows have always drawn big crowds. Newly minted 21-year-olds may not know of the legend that was, but Table Ten still has a special place in the memory of thousands of THON alums.



“Playing together came about very organically,” Powers said. “We began the band as college friends and because of this we naturally have ran back into each other at weddings and other events. We agreed that there hadn’t been much closure with how we left the band and thought if there would be any reason to knock off the rust it would be for THON, which for us, along with performing shows with Rusted Root as a close second, was the pinnacle of our musical career.”

Could Table Ten be back for good?

“Right now it is open ended,” Powers said. “Our primary focus has just been getting stage-ready after our longest break from performing.”
