The Student Activities Association Executive Director, Christian Schlogel, said, “Our goal is to provide students at the University of Mississippi, as well as residents of the Oxford community, with a great experience.  The Student Activities Association exists to serve students by sponsoring fun and entertaining events.  Our annual spring concert is a great opportunity for people to come out and enjoy a Sunday afternoon in The Grove with some great live music.  We are very excited for Sunday the 24th!”

The concert will follow Double Decker weekend, which ends Saturday, April 23 and the Ole Miss baseball game at 1 p.m. against Auburn on Sunday.

NEEDTOBREATHE is a Christian rock band from Seneca, South Carolina. To date, they have five albums released and their anticipated new album “Hard Love” will be available for purchase on July 15. The band will kick off the “Tour de Compadres” on August 17 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
