Money for Moufy

By Katelyn Zenie
On February 2, 2012


Jeffrey Fortunato, also known as Moufy is performing here at Lyndon State in late April.

Moufy is a well known hip-hop/rap artist from the Boston Mass. area who's song ‘Boston Lights' plays at every New England Patriots home game. He won best new artist at the Boston Music Awards, has opened for Mac Miller, and much more.

Christina Cadorette, Brian Lacharite, and an estimated 45 music business and industry majors and Moufy fans attended the student government association meeting Wednesday to show their support. This event was first sparked by the ‘Event Management' class on campus, through Facebook and word of mouth.

Many are saying that just the buzz around campus on this topic is enough to get them to check it out. One of the most convincing arguments in favor of Moufy coming to Lyndon is his personal tie with the school. His brother, Jose Fortunato, attended Lyndon just last year. There are at least two hundred people that indicated their interest in this event on Facebook, the organizers are looking to fill up the Alexander Twilight Theatre's 500+ seats.

In the past, student government and the Campus Activities Bored has been hesitant to fund music performances because they don't get the turn out they need to make up for the money they put into the event.

However, students and supporters of this project believe bringing Moufy to Lyndon will be worth the money. The event was originally four thousand dollars, but with a combination of a one thousand dollar grant and the ‘event management' student class fees, the event was taken down to twenty-seven hundred dollars.

The student government passed this event with the restriction set that their money only be used for booking fees and production.

Brooke Parciak, a MBI student involved with this event says, "People believe that this meeting is only for Moufy to come and perform, but realistically this is a stepping stone for the future to get performers to come here."

Trever Gross, another MBI major says "Am I fan of Moufy? No. Do I want to help the MBI program gain some momentum, get the approval to show what we can do, nail it, and be able to expand on this for the good of the college and it's students? No brainer; absolutely."
