The Professors return to Lenfell Hall at Fairleigh Dickinson University to perform at the Convocation Ceremony for students graduating from the MA in Corporate and Organizational Communication. Gary performs the entire first set on classical guitar, and dedicates the performace of Pink Floyd's "Dogs" to the retiring Dean of Becton College, Barbara Salmore. Maya "Little Schmoopy" Romanenko makes her debut nailing the chicken to the floor during the performance of The Professors' classic, "Sunday Night at Kenny's." The show ends on a high with two completely spontaneous encores. The first, "Psycho Killer," was a song that was fairly familiar from recent practice sessions. However, the playing of Hawkwind's "Brainstorm" as the final number of the night came as a complete surprise to both the audience and the band. The song went splendidly and crowned a very successful performance.
