If you like rock n roll and 80s music, mark your calendar for Saturday, Oct. 22, when Velveeta, not the cheese, will perform at 7 p.m. in the ballroom at Heritage Hills Golf Resort and Conference. This popular State College band will be doing a one night performance as part of Penn State York’s Homecoming Weekend activities. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. No need to worry about missing the Penn State vs. Northwestern football game, it will be broadcast on two big screens.

The event is being sponsored by the Penn State York Alumni Society and the Penn State Alumni Association (PSAA), York County Chapter. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15 online at the Penn State Alumni Association, York County Chapter website or send a check made payable to PSAA-York County Chapter, c/o Penn State York Alumni and Development Office, 1031 Edgecomb, Ave., York, PA 17403.

Velveeta, a four-person band that has been entertaining for more than 16 years, started playing as a joke at The Brewery in State College. Their fan base has grown over the years and Velveeta is now considered one of the top bands performing in State College and around the area.

John “Bones” Harper, drums and vocals; Brent Martin, keyboard and guitar; Brian Kriley, guitar and vocals; and John Matthews, bass and vocals, are Velveeta. The band plays a variety of 80s tunes with a mix of others. Song titles such as “What I Iike About You,” I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” and “I’m a Believer,” are just a sampling of the hits in the band repertoire. Don’t miss the chance to see Velveeta.
