There is so much to say about OBU’s “Su-per Spring Affair”, it is hard to fi nd where to start. Everyone could fi nd something they liked between the nu-merous music acts, stage band, and emcee skits and videos. The superhero theme was shown throughout the skits and stage band set list, most prominently.
The much-beloved stage band is comprised mostly of seniors (ex-cept for Misael) this year, and this was their last show. It was heart-warming to see them pour their hearts into the music and both play beautifully and rock out.
The winners of the show, Mad Respect, changed the scene of the night. These three fabulous singers sang Respect, made famous by Aretha Franklin. They included dance steps and their harmony was spot on. From their electrifying entrance to their sassy last note, this group really stole the show.
The Co-Pilots were a great start to the show. The five-person group consisting of all seniors performed “Tear in my Heart”, by Twenty One Pilots.
Jonny vocals were in peak form and the band’s performance matched. Brady Cox, the only solo act, did a mashup of “Lean on Me” and a song by NEEDTOBREATHE.
He got the whole audience clapping along. His slightly raspy tone did the song justice. He was one to watch.
Brad and the Babes (B.A.T.B) showcased beautiful harmonies in a rendition of Queen’s “Somebody to Love”. Everyone seemed to love it.
The 3 J’s and a W gave everyone some indie/alternative feels and the performers were talented musicians.
Mostly Seniors was another amazing addition to the show as a whole. They performed “How to Love”, by PJ Morton.
Us the Dectet performed Us the Duo’s “(Stop) Just Love”. Their group looked great in their matching colors. Kawehi started the performance with a single voice and then others followed.
Brittney Poe’s wind-blown hair and Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy impression add-ed lots of pizazz to the skits.
Jordan brought lots of energy to the stage, shining in the sky-high remake skit as the teacher.
Chapman’s acting was impressive, especially when channeling his inner Harry Potter and Dr. Doofenshmirtz. His vocal solo about a hard childhood, singing as the antagonist from Phineas and Ferb was quite funny.
Jimi Parker stole the show with his Nacho Libre impression in both a physical skit and a video skit.
He has just recently won the Blitz Week show, Mr. Bison Pag-eant, and was named Mr. Bison for the year.
He also acted like Jack Jack from the Incredibles, which was an impressive feat.
Brand new members of CAB were included in this show. Many freshmen greeted and handed out programs.
The lobby of Raley was covered in comic strip décor and photo-booth setups.
During halftime, half-time crew served skittles and drinks.
Many people are commenting on the bird that was flying in Potter Auditorium during the show. The bird swooped down near isles and allegedly pooped as well. I guess it really was a bird, not a plane OR superman.
Overall, this was a good show and the musical talent surprised people in the audience as it always does in one way or another.
