Great music in the village

From the TV set to real life, PSU students got a close view of Tony Lucca, a singer from “The Voice.” Students and community members gathered at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at the gazebo in Gorilla Village to
enjoy Lucca’s musical style and his opening act, Gabe Dixon.
Dixon played for the first hour, though many students had not heard of him. Danny Davis, however, says he was still entertained by Dixon.
“I’ve never heard of him,” said Davis, junior in exercise science. “Though I did really enjoy the sound of his music.”
The Student Activities Council sponsored this event. Jessica Leone, SAC executive board member, says they got Lucca to come here for a deal and Dixon was thrown in for free.
“They are on tour together at the moment,” said Leone, sophomore in business management. “We booked Lucca when he was still on ‘The Voice’ and didn’t even expect to have an opening act come with him.”
At 9 p.m. the star finally came onstage, walking out with his guitar and the crowd went wild. He was the second runner up on “The Voice” last spring, which is what he is most known for, though he has many other roles on his resume.
Lucca’s songs have been featured on “Brothers & Sisters,” “Shark” and “Friday Night Lights.” Over the course of his career he has recorded eight albums and nine different movies.
Some students, like Kirstie Cox, knew of Lucca from “The Voice.”
“I love ‘The Voice’ and Lucca,” said Cox, junior in elementary education. “I watch the show all the time.”
Others, like Ann Hutchison, had never heard of him.
“I had no idea who he was,” said Hutchison, junior in pre-med. “It ended up being very relaxing and a great way to spend the evening, though.”
While Hutchison was there to relax, many students like Yazeed Aldhwayan were there to enjoy much more.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my night,” said Aldhwayan, sophomore in management and marketing. “Hanging out with friends, enjoying the nice weather and listening to great music.”
