Two Catawba bands to perform

In front of the new Downtown Catawba location at 100 West Innes St., two bands made up of Catawba students will be performing.
From 5 to 7 p.m. the Olivia Albertson Band will play music “spirited with the soul of the South.” Olivia, a senior music major from Thomasville, performs vocals and plays guitar, accompanied by band members Nathan Riddle, a junior honors music major from Kannapolis; Pen Chance, a senior theatre arts administration major from Augusta, Ga.; and Greg Moore, a junior music major from Durham.
The Olivia Albertson Band will also present a senior showcase performance in Catawba’s Hedrick Little Theatre on May 3, preceding a Vernaculars performance.

Then from 7 to 9 p.m. four members of Life Size, a pop/rock band made up of Catawba College students, will perform their mixture of folk, pop, rock and blues highlighted by creative vocal harmonies.
Life Size members on hand will include Jake Martin (vocals/guitar) of St. Louis, Mo.; Allijah Motika (vocals/guitar/piano) of Asheville; Tevin Carr (drums) of Statesville; and Greg Moore (bass/vocals) of Durham.
After the Life Size members wrap their set at Downtown Catawba, they will then head over to Uncle Buck’s at 127 S. Main St. to play from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
