The Ready Set to headline Nittany Block pARTy

The second annual Nittany Block pARTy will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, September 7 on Pollock Road in front of the HUB-Robeson Center at Penn State. The event is free and open to the public. Pop recording artist The Ready Set will headline the event. The event will also feature performances by student groups, food and activities from multiple organizations.

The Ready set is the solo project of Jordan Witzigreuter. In July of 2008 he released “Tantrum Castle” and began touring full-time as The Ready Set. His live performances have evolved greatly since his early days, changing from a two-man show to a complete full-band show with bass, drums and lights.

The Ready Set has toured with numerous bands, including Boys Like Girls, performed at The Bamboozle and has also been featured twice on MTV’s Buzzworthy.

In November 2009, Witzigreuter signed with Decaydance Records and Sire Records, both subsidiary labels of Warner Bros. Records. He released his first full–length studio album, “I’m Alive, I’m Dreaming,” on June 15, 2010. The lead single, “Love Like Woe” reached #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #15 on the Billboard pop chart. Other hits include “Young Forever” and “Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever).”

The Nittany Block pARTy is sponsored by Union and Student Activities, New Student Programs and the Student Programming Association
