Originally founded at an all-male Yale in 1952 as the Duke’s Men of Yale, Doox is the university’s first all-gender tenor, baritone, bass a cappella singing group, with a repertoire that is an exciting mix of old favorites and contemporary hits (from Rodgers and Hart to Queen to Rihanna). “Da Doox” regularly tour nationally and internationally, having been most recently to Ecuador, Greece, and Israel, and have won national awards in a cappella competitions. http://dooxofyale.com.
Tickets: available at the door or dooxofyale.com/tickets
Opening for Da Doox.
The Augmented 8 was founded just two years earlier, in 1950, by an octet of collegiate a cappella refugees (4 graduates each from Yale and Princeton), and have been entertaining audiences in the D.C. area ever since. The A8 repertoire is more your father’s TTBB a cappella, singing a few songs written in the last 20 years (think songs from Shrek and Disney’s Frozen), and a lot from the Great American Songbook (Here’s That Rainy Day) and the ‘60s-‘90s (Proud Mary, Motown Medley). https://augmented8.org.
