"We are excited to welcome The Fray to GW for Colonials Weekend and look forward to their high-energy performance. It'll be great to hear their iconic songs at an exclusive event in the Smith Center," said Peter Konwerski, senior associate provost and dean of student affairs. "Who knows? They might even debut some new material."

The Fray formed in 2002 after high school friends Isaac Slade (pianist/vocalist) and Joe King (guitarist/vocalist) bumped into each other at a local guitar shop. Together with Dave Welsh (guitarist) and Ben Wysocki (drummer), the Denver-based foursome achieved national success with their first single, "Over My Head (Cable Car)", a top ten hit in the U.S. Their second single, "How to Save a Life" brought them worldwide fame. The Fray are currently in the studio recording their fourth album.

Colonials Weekend is an annual event that brings together GW students, parents, faculty, staff, family, and friends, and is sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs.
