Hailing from Oslo, Norway, the singing/songwriting duo Nico Sereba and Vincent Dery write and perform songs that fuse varied eclectic influences – from pop to reggae, West African dance to hip hop, and rock to soul.
Mike Posner is a pop, hip-hip and R&B artist who is trying to put a dent in childhood hunger in America. Claiming that over a year ago his life changed, Posner serves one meal to a hungry American child for every album he sells. Posner is known for writing and producing Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” and Labrinth/Emeli Sande’s “Beneath Ur Beautiful.”
Ram Events, formerly the Association of Student Activity Programming, is working with Dynamic Entertainment to co-promote the Homecoming & Family Weekend RamFest. Working with Dynamic Entertainment helps lower expenses and allows Ram Events to bring in higher-profile artists at ticket prices that are affordable for students.
“Working with a promoter allows us to communicate with the artists and agencies to bring in new and exciting talent,” said Sydney Boyle, external relations and public relations coordinator for Ram Events. “After working with the Homecoming committee, Ram Events was fully committed to providing a great Homecoming concert, something we could not have done without a promoter.”
After garnering nearly 2,000 student votes via text message, email and traditional tally, Ram Events sought out a band that was representative of students’ interests when booking a performer for this year’s RamFest. This effort aligns with the goal of making decisions with as much student feedback as possible.
“We believe that student input is important for our office because we are run for students, by students,” said Boyle. “Our main goal is to make sure that we are using the student fees we receive responsibly; we go to the campus for their opinion since we are using their student fee dollars. We strive to be driven by student voice and feedback.”
Nico & Vinz’s “Am I Wrong” video has more than 45 million views on YouTube, is the No. 1 most Shazamed song in the world and has more than 100 million streams on Spotify, according to a release from the artists.
