After our smashing success at Acapalooza the Fellas have decided to expand their talents off of the stage and into the political sphere. This year the Fellas are pleased to announce their candidacy for senatorial and representative positions in the upcoming 2014 election. We will be running alongside lifelong friends Girls Next Door and look forward to promoting good singing technique, music education, and hydration. If you want more information on the Fellas’ views come see us at 7:30 PM on the 23rd of November in the RCAH Theater (in the basement of Sny Phi). We look forward to seeing our soon-to-be constituents’ faces.
The MSU Accafellas
It’s here people. Your opportunity to see the acappella groups of Michigan State University all in one place at one time. It’s at Hannah Community Center again this year, hosted by yours truly, on the 25th and 26th of October. Tickets are five dollars for students and children and ten for adults. We hope to see you all there and can’t wait for the weekend. It’s gonna be so much fun!!
That’s right internet, the MSU Accafellas have done the impossible, we have found another three (well kind of four) Fellas to refill the spots of those that have left us. We had a crazy summer, experiencing three Fellas that left us unexpectedly, but worry not, we adapted. So rather than filling the projected one spot we had four to fill but no task is too great for us. We were lucky to enough to have a wonderful audition pool to catch from and snagged ourselves three real high-quality winners. AND Jake is back! So if any of you were hoping for an explosive and dynamic year of MSU Accafella a-capella, well let me tell you, this is the year for you. Scoot on over to our Members page and read all about our newbies (and oldies too, we deserve some love right?)
If you’ve always wanted to be a Fella well this, this right here, is your lucky day. You can come out and test your worth and join our motley crew of men. Just follow this link for more information – https://www.facebook.com/events/170405373138569/?ref=2 and we will see you there! Can’t wait to hear you and go green!
‘Tis the middle of summer and campus is bare but the MSU Accafellas are still there!!! (well most of them)
We come to you internet users to tell you that despite it being our summer off we still are doing things. We sang at Tecumseh Middle School and a wedding in Detroit in May and now we’ll be inhabiting Traverse City’s Filling Station and Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel this upcoming weekend. If you would like to know more about our trip to Mackinac follow this link – http://blog.grandhotel.com/?p=3155
If you’re an incoming, or recently interested, MSU male student keep posted on our Facebook page for audition information . Expect to see us at Sparticipation and get excited for Acapalooza!!!
Be there or be square…but not cool art square, like lame square
Alright people, here we have it, the month of March, March Madness where you’re filled with excitement for basketball, Spring…..aaaaand the Fellas. First on the list is the Semi-Finals of ICCA where the boys will be travelling to Ann Arbor (Skyline High School to be specific) to see if we are really ready for the challenge. After our March 23rd ICCA expedition we are going to Zeeland, March 25th, to do a big show with a jazz band. The Fellas have never really done anything like that so if you’re in the area you have to check it out. And then our Spring Show! That’s right people, our SPRING SHOW. It is March 28th, 7:30 PM, at the Hannah Community Center. Tickers for adults are $10 and $5 for students and the lovely ladies of Ladies First will be there too. This spring we are saying goodbye to our oldest member, Richard Hofmeister, and ushering in the new, celebrating modern art. Yes, the theme for our show is The Fellas Experience Modern Art. So come out, see Dicky sing like a nightingale and feel intelligent whilst the Fella-art connoisseurs educate you on what is in and what is out.
So we got through the month of January everyone. I was slightly concerned we weren’t with four gigs and ICCA…and the beginning of the semester. But not only did we get through but I feel that we got through with relative success. We had a blast singing at Walled Lake and the other venues we had peppered around the Greater Lansing area. ICCA went really well and we were lucky enough to take 1st place at our region and Daniel Sherwood and Joe Caigoy won best choreography for “Everybody Talks” (the last thing Daniel needed, he is already soooo cocky). So I, and the rest of the boys, are all super excited to go on to Ann Arbor for Semis. We don’t have too much in February but once March and April hit, ohhh boy, will we be busy. So keep your eyes peeled for updates and Happy Valentines Day!
Hello internet. It has been a while since this site has gotten an update so we figured we should fill you in. Since the last post we’ve sang at a wedding, at a holiday party, and for a new couple. It was a busy last few weeks of the semester but we all love and enjoy being busy (especially while learning new Christmas music).
We also were written about on the BigGreen. If you want to read the article about our Fall Concert here is the link – http://www.thebiggreen.net/2012/12/15/acafellas-sweet-sixteen/#
And coming up we have a great gig in Brighton where we are reunited with the Godfather, some more weddings, our trip to Traverse City, and of course, ICCA. So if you are hungry for some fellas expect some sustenance because 2013 will be equally as busy as 2012. Happy New Year everyone!
Our concert is done! We would just like to thank everyone who came out to support us. We were so happy with the turn out and how everything went overall. Also we want to thank the Pasant for working with us and Girls Next Door A Cappella for sounding so beautiful.
If you didn’t get a chance to make it do not worry, there will be more shows to come =)
Thanks again for all of your support and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
