March 02, 2011

Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, and Steve Gonsalves from the hit television series “Ghost Hunters” will take to the stage at Penn State York’s Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $60 (VIP) and $39, and are on sale now.

“Ghost Hunters” follows The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS), as they investigate locations across the United States with claims of haunting and paranormal activity. Hawes and Wilson, plumbers by trade, created and head up The Atlantic Paranormal Society. TAPS has pioneered a different approach to paranormal investigation. They go into a location seeking to disprove claims of paranormal activity, finding real-world explanations for these events.

Both Hawes and Wilson are part of a small, blue-collar Rhode Island community where many of the TAPS members were born and raised. Hawes’ own highly personal paranormal experience prompted him to do more than wonder about an afterworld. He launched TAPS from a spare room of his apartment. Hawes met Wilson more than a decade ago, and they remain best friends and co-workers to this day. Like Hawes, Wilson had a life-altering experience with the afterworld, and both prefer not to discuss the incidents.

Gonsalves is the TAPS technology manager and evidence analyst. It is his responsibility to train all TAPS members on how to use and maintain the team's wide range of high-tech equipment. As the technology manager, he oversees all members of the TAPS Tech team. Gonsalves has been a public speaker and educator about paranormal phenomena for more than 10 years. He is also the co-founder of the TAPS publication, “Paramagazine.”

The presentation will include a PowerPoint presentation of amazing paranormal cases, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.
