How's the music scene at Vassar?

<p>I know they bring in music acts regularly, but tell me more. Do alot of bands form on campus? What kinds of music are people typically into? Outside of the traditional, school-affiliated bands, do people really perform much on campus?</p>

<p>Anything you can tell me would be great. I have a pretty diverse music taste, and I'm a musician myself (if you want to call me that). Into stuff like jambands, funk, blues, ect. Fill me in! :)</p>

<p>I checked with my son and he says there are several student bands that do play on campus and at some of the local establishments. Many different styles of music are represented. The only negative is that it is a bit difficult for the bands to find places to practice. He agrees there are many music acts that play on campus and in the Poughkeepsie area and he was able to attend some good concerts.</p>

<p>He is looking forward to playing with the jazz band next year - he did not have time this year. The jazz band also gets 'gigs' on campus in addition to their regular concerts in the music building.</p>
