Following the games the College Greek Step Show/Concert will be held in the Dawson Center at 7:00 p.m. with admission at $25.00 for both events. Everyone is invited to this exciting and energetic event. Marvin Sease will be the star attraction for the concert. Sease has turned his smooth, ladies' man persona into a cottage industry complete with merchandising in the Deep South. Sease straddles the line between blues and gospel-drenched soul, much like fellow Southern singers Johnnie Taylor and Tyrone Davis.

Born in Blackville, S.C., Sease got his start by joining a gospel group in nearby Charleston called the Five Gospel Singers, and moved to New York at age 20, where he joined another gospel group called the Gospel Crowns. Preferring R&B, though, Sease put together a backing band (called Sease) featuring his three brothers. Sease later began singing to pre-recorded backing tracks at local dances and clubs, self-released several 45s, and eventually scored a regular gig at a Brooklyn nightspot called the Casablanca. Gunning for greater success, Sease recorded a self-titled LP in 1986 featuring one of his most popular songs, "Ghetto Man”.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or from the Voorhees College cashier
