"The Professor Speaks by Jim Price"

Another new band I saw was Table Ten, during one of their weekly Wednesday shows at State College’s Bar Bleu. Playing as a trio this night; Josh Corcoran, Jared Stillman and Antonio Parisi demonstrated versatility as they swapped instruments and positions during the course of their show. Table Ten mixed a wide variety of styles, often cleverly blending several songs into interesting medleys and grooves. Their musical terrain ranged from modern flavors like Dispatch and Sublime to classic rock, reggae, roots and more. Besides their instrumental dexterity, Table Ten displayed clear voices and strong harmonies. Table Ten is quickly emerging into a Happy Valley favorite; find out why Wednesdays at Bar Bleu. - Pennsylvania Musician

"Students, alums guard the Lion"

Penn State students and alumni continued to show their spirit Friday night as they helped "guard the Lion Shrine" in the snow with the Lion Ambassadors and Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) cadets.

Sue Paterno spoke to the crowd about her choice to paint the Lion Shrine in orange paint in 1966 to bring back Penn State spirit.

"Now there's no need to paint the lion again because we do that [showing Penn State spirit] better than the whole nation," Sue Paterno said.

Lion Ambassadors performed a skit about the history of the Lion Shrine and its vandalism and the band Table Ten performed across the street, in front of Rec Hall.

"Students team up for song"

By Chidi Ugwu
For the Collegian

Two of the more active acts in the State College music scene, Mairys Joaquin and Table Ten, have come together to produce a new song called "The Truth."

The song, which Joaquin (senior-journalism) and Table Ten recorded Tuesday night, is actually a reworking of one of Joaquin's older songs. Joaquin wrote the song when she was 17 and recorded it in her best friend's closet, but she thought the quality didn't do it justice.

"I've always liked the song, so I figured that it deserved some better treatment," she said.

Since the reworking with Table Ten, the song has developed a new spin, guitarist and vocalist Josh Corcoran said. Joaquin said she originally wrote the song as a breakup song, but it has since gone on to have a larger meaning.

"I think it's the all-encompassing, empowering song of anyone who has lost themselves in a relationship," she said. "It's about being in a relationship and not being able to see clearly and only realizing it after the whole thing is over."

Corcoran (senior-communication arts and sciences) said although the song was just recorded, it's already had some positive effects.

"The song leaves us thinking about what's next and where to go from here, for her album and ours," he said.

Joaquin is hopeful that people will like it. "I put my heart and soul in it," she said.

Collaboration between Joaquin and Table Ten is nothing new, said Corcoran, adding they have worked together in the past and have established a great musical relationship. They also share connections in the greek community: Joaquin is the outgoing president of the Panhellenic Council, while Corcoran is the former president of Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity.

Percussionist Antonio Parisi (senior-geobiology) said working with Joaquin is always fun.

"She has a lot of energy and always brings that to the table whenever we work together," he said.

Joaquin said she and the group work really well musically -- when she first thought to rework the song, Table Ten was the only group she considered collaborating with.

"When we get together, we don't even have to practice that much because we just work together so well," she said. - The Daily Collegian

"Band with close Thon ties to play benefit concert"

By Nick Weingartner

For Table Ten, playing in support of Interfraternity Council/Panhellenic Dance Marathon is not only a way to give back but also a way to keep up the spirits of a fraternity which the group has close ties.

At 7 tonight, Sigma Tau Gamma will hold a benefit concert to kick off it's first canning weekend. Local bands Table Ten and Shelbyville will play at the fraternity's house, 500 S. Allen Road.

"It's really about building anticipation," said organizer Vince Paventa, a member at Sigma Tau Gamma. "We want to raise money and build spirit."

Entry is $5 and food will cost $1. Sigma Tau Gamma philanthropy chairman Jim Smith said he was involved in Thon last year and knows what it does for the families and children it assists.

"You just get a good feeling whenever you get involved," Smith (junior-kinesiology) said.

Table Ten was asked to play because of it's special relationship with the fraternity -- guitarist Josh Corcoran is a former president of Sigma Tau Gamma.

"They are great guys," Paventa (junior-advertising-public relations) said. "Always enthusiastic about Thon."

The band has been involved in the charity for some time, band members said.

In fact, two of the band members danced in Thon last year, Corcoran (senior-communication arts and sciences) said .

"Basically, we want to be able to take all these people who come out for Thon, to come together and play music and show these people a good time." Corcoran said. "Let them go into the weekend energized and do their best work for Thon."

The fraternity hopes the event will be the beginning of a successful fundraising effort, Smith said. The members are aiming to raise $80,000 for this year's Thon. As for Paventa, he's hoping the concert will start the weekend off right.

"Thon is really something all of Penn State comes together for," he said. "We're going for a positive, uplifting atmosphere to build spirit and enthusiasm to kick off canning with a bang."

The fraternity wants everyone to have a good time, but those who attend shouldn't forget what the concert is for, Smith said. - The Daily Collegian

"Eleven bands will take THON stage"

It's written in stone somewhere -- during THON, The People shall dance.

And luckily, that's the plan.

Along with DJing and other onstage entertainment, live bands will again provide music for Interfraternity Council/Panhellenic Dance Marathon dancers.

"I love live entertainment," said Ross Di Liddo (senior-marketing), co-chairman of bands for THON. "I think it's the best form of entertainment."

Playing mostly covers, 11 bands will take the stage on Friday to help the dancers stay awake as they battle the forces of fatigue.

"It keeps the energy flowing," said Meghan Walsh (senior-journalism), also a THON bands co-chair. "All of the bands are really interactive."

The groups include My Hero Zero, Velveeta, Go Go Gadjet, Brew Devils, JR & Natalie, Whipple Jam, Country Club Drive, Lowjack, Table Ten, Billy Bauer Band and the Family Brew -- which features Penn State President Graham Spanier.

Walsh said the bands were selected from many acts across the state, chosen for their upbeat nature, musical styles and dedication to THON. Some bands are more familiar with THON than others -- Velveeta, for one, has played the event more than 10 times.

"It's a wide variety," Walsh said. "But what's important is that they all understand the cause of THON, and that's our main consideration."

Walsh said she and Di Liddo ventured downtown and into bars and fraternities to scout. The result is an eclectic mixture of upbeat bands designed to keep the dancers dancing.

"It's just one of many things that keeps the event exciting," Walsh said. "I mean, it's music for a dance marathon."

Dancers come back to play

Unlike other bands, Table Ten doesn't always make a set list before going on stage -- even when the band plays for THON.

The acoustic trio will be just one band playing during the Interfraternity Council/Panhellenic Dance Marathon this year. Band member Josh Corcoran has been told his band sounds like Dispatch and other acoustic acts.

"We have such a mix of styles," he said. "We fall into that Jack Johnson kind of vibe because we're acoustic."

Though the band doesn't have a concrete set list, the members have some idea of what they want to play, Corcoran said.

Performing around State College for two years, Table Ten has received positive feedback for its "mash-up" of three popular songs, Corcoran said.

"We take 'The Scientist' by Coldplay and mix it with T.I.'s 'Whatever You Like' and the Cranberries' 'Zombie,' " he said. "They all have the same chord structure."

The band also plans on playing some original songs and a few covers of songs by artists like Bob Marley. But it's the thrill of seeing THON from a performer's perspective that makes it exciting, Corcoran said.

Band member Jared Stillman and Corcoran were dancers at THON last year, with Stillman representing Acacia and Corcoran representing the IFC executive board, Corcoran said.

"It was such a crazy range of emotions throughout the entire course of the 46 hours," Corcoran said. "But it was something I'll never, ever forget."

Our band began by playing open mic nights at a bar in state college. after a few performances, we were told that we needed to choose a name. not knowing what we should do, we began looking around the room to see if we could think of something fast. eventually, our eyes landed on where we were sitting: a beat up old table with the number 10 on it.

After two successful years packing bars at the number one party school in the country, we are looking to branch out of Penn State and move into the next chapter of our musical careers. I'm sure your first question is what will set us apart from the rest of the pack. Technically speaking, we have no drum set. Antonio, uses an array of hand drums, including a Congo, a djembe, and a pair of bongos, as well as cymbals and tambourines. The sight of this usually catches people off guard, but the sound of the drums is an infectious beat that people can't seem to resist dancing to. We also uses an acoustic/electric guitar and a bass, giving us a fairly unique sound, which lets us do a number of cover songs in ways that no one has ever heard of before. Very often we'll splice songs together, combining artists such as T.I. with Coldplay and the Cranberries. Unlike other bands, we have been playing live shows to packed crowds for two years. We know how to put on a show and entertain the audience, and we act like professionals, even though we are all only 23 years old.

What is Table Ten’s Long Term goals?
Our long term goal would is to make a career out of music and eventually get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We are a cover band out of necessity, and because of this we've done our best to make each song as original and uniquely our as possible. Many times people will tell us that they actually enjoy our versions of the songs better than the original. Our original songs have also been getting a great response as well, and many times we'll see people singing the lyrics back to us word for word. We are very good at song placement, and we craft set list on the fly to match the energy of the audience throughout the night.
