The sound of music wafting through the air on Tuesday could be heard by all those passing through Chesapeake on their way to Starbucks. The music they heard was coming from Vincent Lacsamana, a senior finance major at George Mason University. He was the first performer on the bill for Program Board’s Tuesday Jams, held last week.

Students may remember that for the past few semesters, Tuesday Jams had been hosted in Jazzman’s on the bottom floor of the JC, but due to the small attendance numbers, Program Board moved its event to Starbucks, a more popular coffee shop in a more traffic-heavy location.

Luckily, Tuesday provided nice (albeit brisk) weather for the show to go on outside on the patio.

Lacsamana opened up with a wonderful Jason Mraz cover, following up with emotional, acoustic versions of many popular songs from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5 and Death Cab for Cutie. He also played a sweet and touching version of T-Pain’s “Buy U a Drank.”

Lacsamana displayed his vocal and guitar skill for a solid hour in the on-and-off cold wind to the attentive crowd. Applause was hard to come by but everyone passing by looked and seemed interested. With any luck, we will see much more of this student and his talent before he graduates.

Program Board hopes their events will pick up steam in the new location. Look and listen for Tuesday Jams every Tuesday at the new Starbucks. To see a schedule of performances for Tuesday Jams and other on-campus events, visit http://pb.gmu.edu.
