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, and we have the solution!


Acapellacalypse is our annual acapella invitational concert, where we get to enjoy the musical stylings of fellow acapella singers and share what we've been working on, too.
It's always a great time, so we hope you'll pop in for a listen, or pick a seat and stay to hear us all!

Joining us this year will be (the fabulous):

Bluestockings (Amherst College)
Crazy Pitches (Hampshire College)
DQ (Amherst College)
Nice Shoes (Mount Holyoke College)
S#arp Attitude (Umass)
Smithereens (Smith College)

We're so excited to sing with this talented group of musicians. We hope to see you there!
