Hey Octet fans - it's time for something exciting and new. The UC Men's Octet Archives have just hit YouTube, and the archivist (an Octet Alumni) is sharing classic Octet music with YouTube. Enjoy "Wimoweh (The Lion Sleeps Tonight)" below, and then click on the link (even further below) to enjoy other Octet classics. I am SO excited for this to happen, and I hope you will enjoy all the music to come from this INCREDIBLE group.)
Also, I am going to announce the official 2013-2014 Octet as soon as I know, for sure, who are in the group. I KNOW that we have 2 Kyles, and one of them is an alumni, and American Idol contestant. Oh, yeah. It's gonna be a good year.
The UC Men's Octet will be performing a FREE show Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 8 pm. The show will be at 155 Dwinelle Hall. It will be an amazing show! Go if you can. Current Members. New Members. Audience Participation & a cappella fun!
Update: Also, May 1st is SUPER SPROUL (every song the Octet knows!), another free show. I believe it begins at 1:00 pm
Andrew Bundy - The Cowby Song - Original Music
Ryan Tabura - Keep Your Head Up - Cover
Patrick Wong - Put Your Records On - Cover
On a different note- I was going to try the "Gold" CD review, but my computer needed emergency life support and a lobotomy. Sorry. It WILL happen. Keep the faith!
Happy happy friends. I just realized that the Octet fan page is 3 years old this May. I think the actual day is a week or two away, but before I forget (I WILL forget, don't worry about that) I just thought I'd present my heartfelt YAYS! and THANKS! to the Octet (Oldtet, too) for all the good times and all the great surprises! and my heartfelt love and gratitude to Octet and co-fans alike! Bless your collective faces. :)
I know that there can always be improvement, and this upcoming year (year 4) I will do better with the site.
