Day to perform at The Vern

Howie Day will be performing at the Mount Vernon Campus’ Fountain Day on April 30. Program Board, the Mount Vernon Programming Council and Class Council sponsor the annual event.

Program Board officials have been keeping the identity of the performer secret, but Day’s management confirmed Tuesday afternoon that he would be playing at GW despite a show here not being listed on his Web site. Program Board leaders would not confirm Day’s scheduled appearance.

Day’s manager, Shawn Radley, said the performer will play a 60- to 75-minute set for the event, which starts at 4:30 p.m. Radley added Program Board was planning on releasing the name of the artist on Thursday.

He released his second album, “Stop All the World Now,” in 2003 and has since toured with Guster and Ben Folds. This summer, Day will hit the road, opening for the Dave Matthews Band. Day has built a following for his solo acoustic performances that feature him using devices that create the effect of a band playing behind him.
