Gin & Tonics
The Gin & Tonics are an auditioned, coed, zany group of singers from Hampshire College. Our repertoire spans from classic rock to indie pop, and from doo-wop renditions of Ke$ha to The Time Warp. We have one major performance at the end of each semester, and also host Acapellacalypse, an annual acapella invitational featuring groups from the Five Colleges and beyond. You can also find us occasionally performing at local businesses in the valley, and opening for other acapella groups off campus.
Love to sing? Auditions are held at the beginning of every fall semester. Come join us!
Ever feel like your love for acapella can't possibly be captured by just one group? We hear you.
Come to Acapellacalypse 2014 on March 30th in the Main Lecture Hall!
Joining us will be (the fabulous):
Bluestockings (Amherst College)
Crazy Pitches (Hampshire College)
Nice Shoes (Mount Holyoke College)
Smithereens (Smith College)
Vocal Suspects (Umass)
Performance time is TBD. Keep an eye out for more information.
We're so excited to sing with this talented group of musicians. We hope to see you there!
