Writer: Writer: Don Sparhawk

Singer-songwriter Nik Day will perform Saturday, June 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Kirkham Auditorium at BYU-Idaho. Opening the show will be comedian Stephen Jones, well known for his acting in the popular "New Spice" YouTube video.

Day, a native of Idaho Falls, started playing the piano when he was just 5 years old. When he was 16, he compiled a book of piano solos he had composed and sold it to piano teachers and their students.

He recorded his first album while at BYU-Idaho. He has since transferred to BYU where he met Dan Reyes-Cairo, who produced his latest project, Interesting Shade of Blue.

Day describes his music as "a mix between Michael Buble and Jason Mraz, with a little Jamie Cullum. It's jazz-influenced piano-pop with a hint of ragtime and a lot of soul. ... Throw in some apple pie and you're set."

Jones is a tremendous personality that excites and amuses audiences of young and old alike. He is a comedian, host and actor best known for his widely popular "New Spice, Study Like a Scholar, Scholar" video which has reached nearly 3 million views on YouTube.

On stage, he is known for his impersonations, voices and dancing. He has been entertaining since his childhood and has been a professional stand-up comedian since 2008.

Tickets are $5 and are available online at or at the BYU-Idaho Ticket Office by calling 496-3170.
