Harmony House coffee shop, located on First Avenue in Dayton, hosted an event Thursday night welcoming back Bryan College students.

John Piatt, the owner of Harmony House, offered half-priced coffee drinks to customers while they enjoyed the music of the Newsom Station band.

Newsom Station named their band after a street in Nashville.

“It’s one of those good, old Tennessee roads,” said sophomore drummer Clayton Schmidt.

“It’s a cool road to drive in the fall,” said sophomore Stephen Bryan.  Bryan is a guitarist as well as a singer for Newsom Station.

All members of Newsom Station, a band which came together in the fall of 2008, write music for their specific instrument.

“Newsom Station provided customers with a relaxed atmosphere that is conducive to studying,” said senior Carolyn Candland.

Piatt said he wants to provide a place for Bryan students to come and study.

Piatt regularly offers 20 percent off coffee drinks between the hours of 3-6 p.m., Monday through Friday, to help set up an atmosphere where students can study and relax.

According to freshman Sally Giles, Harmony House is a nice place to sit and read when you are not on campus.  Giles said students who do not like coffee can still come and enjoy Harmony House’s smoothies.

In addition to providing a place for students to study and relax, Piatt hopes to host more events in the future.Sunset
