CSM Twilight Performance Series: Contemporary, Jazz, Rock

Leonardtown, Prince Frederick Host 4th Week of Series

The fourth week of the College of Southern Maryland’s (CSM) Twilight Performance Series will offer a mixture of blues, rock and jazz for audiences enjoying the free, family-friendly entertainment at the Leonardtown and Prince Frederick campuses.

With Lying Eyes, playing acoustic rock to alternative metal, will perform on the Great Lawn of the Leonardtown Campus, 6:45 p.m., July 28. In the event of inclement weather, the performance will move indoors to Building A, Auditorium.

The U.S. Navy's premier contemporary entertainment ensemble, the Cruisers, will perform at the Prince Frederick Campus. 6:45 p.m., July 30, with inclement weather location in Building B, Multipurpose Room.

When With Lying Eyes was formed in late 2009, it consisted of lifelong friends Chris Dean and David Hamner playing acoustic covers of their favorite bands for a handful of viewers on YouTube. Since then, the band has evolved into a five-piece alternative metal act comprised of Hamner on vocals and guitar, Dean and Jesse Cusic on guitar, Dylan Gausman on bass and Nick Cusic on drums. Though the oldest member is only 21 years old, With Lying Eyes has released two EPs and one full-length album to date and the band has played countless venues in the area, including Charm City Art Space, the Ottobar, Sonar and Empire. Through their music, With Lying Eyes aims to emulate and honor the bands they grew up listening to, like Silverstein, Dishwalla, We Came as Romans, Breaking Benjamin and Underoath, among others.

Immediately following With Lying Eyes’ concert, the Student Association of the Leonardtown Campus invites guest to remain for a free showing of “Pitch Perfect 2.”

 

The Cruisers feature eight of the Navy's most dynamic performers. Formed in 1999 as a specialty unit, the Cruisers are under the leadership of drummer, Senior Chief Musician Leon Alexander. The group takes its name from the Navy's versatile, flexible, multi-missioned ship, the Cruiser, and the band is as versatile, having the capabilities to play genres of music ranging from jazz and standard, rhythm and blues, classic rock, adult contemporary and pop as well as original material will perform. This elite group has engaged and excited audiences of all ages with world-class musicianship and high-energy, fun-filled performances.
