The Augmented 8 is an all male a cappella group that has continuously entertained Washington audiences for over 65 years with a blend of old standards and modern pop, with a bit of jazz, gospel, and doo wop arrangements.

The group was formed by the merger of two quartets of Yale and Princeton graduates and was, over time, “augmented” by like-minded souls who wanted to continue singing after college.

The Augmented 8 is a founding member of the American A Cappella Alliance, and performs around the country at the annual Spring Sing weekend. As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Augmented 8 has produced the Sing Out for Shelter concert for the past twenty-five years, providing over $300,ooo of financial support to organizations dedicated to helping the local homeless population. We are proud to be able to leverage our love of music to be able to give back out our communities.
