Fastball to play FREE concert

Fastball to play free concert for Northeast State’s 50th anniversary

On August 18, 2016 By northeastnationIn Northeast News



Northeast State continues its year-long 50th anniversary celebration Sept. 29 with a free concert by the Grammy-nominated band Fastball.

Festivities will start on the Blountville campus at 11:00 a.m. and include family amusement activities and food trucks. At 2:00 p.m., former Northeast State presidents and Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey will gather at the amphitheater to commemorate the College’s anniversary. At 6:00 p.m., The Breakfast Club®, a popular 80’s tribute band from Atlanta, will perform followed by Fastball at 8:00 p.m.

For more information, visit and click on the homecoming tab.

Those in attendance will be offered free souvenirs and promotional items imprinted with Northeast State’s anniversary logo. Visitors are encouraged to bring chairs and/or blankets to sit on during the concert. No alcoholic beverages will be allowed.

With nearly 20 years of musical explorations and milestones under its belt, Fastball remains one of the most consistent and continuously celebrated rock bands on the road these days. After rising to prominence in 1996 with the debut disc Make Your Mama Proud, the Austin, Texas-based trio exploded into a household name with 1998’s breakthrough project All the Pain Money Can Buy.


Thanks in part to hits such as “The Way,” “Out Of My Head,” and “Fire Escape,” the record skyrocketed to platinum-plus sales in a mere six months, sending the band on a whirlwind tour of the world. Along the way, Fastball scored a pair of coveted Grammy nominations, an MTV Music Award nomination, and regular rotation on the late night talk show circuit.

That momentum continued into the next decade, starting with 2000’s The Harsh Light of Day, which the infectious single “You’re An Ocean,” and included a cavalcade of guest stars like the late, great legend Billy Preston, Stray Cats singer, Brian Setzer, and former Wallflowers guitarist, Michael Ward. Painting the Corners: The Best of Fastball was released in 2002.

With 2004’s Keep Your Wig On, which was produced by Spoon collaborator Mike McCarthy and Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger, Fastball hit its stride. The album boasted influences ranging from British Invasion to the power pop to roots rock.

By 2009, the trio turned in Little White Lies entirely on its own terms, which didn’t just earn the veterans the best reviews of their career, but also multiple appearances at Austin’s SXSW conference and festival.

“I think we’ve grown into a really good rock n’ roll band that’s way better than we’ve ever been,” said Miles Zuniga, co-vocalist/guitarist/co-songwriter. “We have an audience that’s stuck with us the whole time and playing shows never feels like work because it’s a ton of fun. We know people want to hear the hits and we definitely have those in there, but we try to play something off every record, have some improvisational moments without turning into a jam band, and half the time, I start calling out the set list as we go. It all depends on the night and the barometric pressure of the audience.”

Opening the show will be The Breakfast Club®, which touts itself as the longest running, most recognized ’80s tribute band in the United States.

Formed in 1993, the band’s mission is to create the buoyant spirit of music and live performances of the MTV generation bands of the 1980’s. The group’s song list contains more than 100 tunes by artists such as The Cars, Duran Duran, The J. Geils Band, Huey Lewis and the News, Van Halen, and Wang Chung.

The homecoming and concert are also part of the Northeast State Foundation’s annual Because of You Campaign (BOYC) week, which runs Sept. 26 through Oct. 3. The week is designed to allow the College’s clubs and organizations to raise funds for scholarships, programs and projects. The week culminates with a check ceremony and celebration on Oct. 3.

iOPTiN Program Looks to Save on Textbook Costs

iOPTiN program looks to save on textbook costs


Northeast State students will be able to participate in a new program this fall to reduce textbook costs.

The College, in concert with the Follett Bookstore on the Blountville campus, is introducing the iOPTiN program for fall 2016 that could potentially save students 60 to 80 percent on most textbooks.

The iOPTiN program is designed to reduce textbook costs.

As designed, students will see an electronic book (eBook) cost associated with each course during the registration process. Students will have access to download eBooks and materials through the Desire 2 Learn (D2L) learning management system on the first day of class. Students will pay for eBooks through financial aid or receive a bill.

Full-term students will have a two-week period at the start of a course or semester to opt out of the eBook program. Opt out deadlines will be posted on the College’s academic calendar for other compressed semester/block schedules.

The program dovetails with the College’s iNortheast Mobile Technology initiative. The initiative was piloted during the 2015-2016 academic year when Northeast State distributed iPad mini 2 devices to Tennessee Promise students and eligible full-time students. Funded by the Northeast State Foundation and an Appalachian Regional Commission grant, the program provided 1,800 devices.

Students enrolling in credit courses at Northeast State starting fall 2016 are required to lease or purchase iPads with Apple’s iOS 9 or greater operating system and 32 GB of memory. The savings on etextbooks should more than cover the cost of the lease fee for most courses.

Starting fall 2016, the bookstore will sell iPads at an educational discount. A student ID will be required to receive the discount. Students may also purchase an iPad online at the Apple Store or retail stores that sell Apple products.

The 2016 Tennessee annual sales tax holiday is July 29 – 31. During the tax free weekend, iPads, laptops, and computers under $1,500 may be purchased without having to pay sales tax. The tax exemption not only applies to items purchased within stores, but also items purchased over the phone, Internet, or mail in which the retailer accepts the order during the tax free holiday.

Students may also lease an iPad Mini 2 through Northeast State. A lease costs $110 per semester for the 2016-2017 academic year. Students who pay their tuition and fees, as well as the iPad lease fee, may lease an iPad.

Students must sign a lease agreement, which is available for viewing at campus cashier windows. Cashiers are located in Blountville (Pierce P203A), Johnson City (JC1003), Kingsport (Blazier-Wilson Hall 107), and Elizabethton (E134). When completed, students will receive a receipt for payment or a copy of an authorization form. Students take the receipt or form to one of the identified IT service centers at each campus listed below to sign a lease and collect a leased iPad:

Blountville Campus – Pierce Building. Room P216

Kingsport – Kingsport Center for Higher Education, Room KC305

Bristol – Room BR332

Elizabethton – Room E100A

Johnson City – Room JC1097
