It is official! We have been asked to part of the live music for the 2013 Logan Summerfest at the Logan, UT Tabernacle grounds which will be held on June 13-15. We are extremely excited about this opportunity. We are glad that we will be able to provide our fans, friends, and family a public performance to come and enjoy our music. We have been asked to put a 60min set of music together. So there will be plenty of songs for you to enjoy. We plan on singing some of the songs some of the Cache Valley citizens have already heard us sing. And we plan on adding many new songs. We will have a mixture of pop acappella, doo-wop, barbershop, men’s chorus, madrigals, spirituals, Scottish, and comedy pieces. There should be something for everyone to enjoy. Throughout the decades in the 19th and early 20th centuries, you could often find a barbershop or other men’s vocal group performing in city parks throughout the United States. They were often a staple in county fairs, park expositions, and parades. We are glad to be providing Cache Valley with an opportunity to experience what many of our ancestors experienced.

Also a dying genre of music are the “golden oldie” do-wop songs of the 1940s and 1950s. We strive to preserve this art form as well. We enjoy bringing back memories of times gone by to the older generations in our community. Of times that weren’t so rushed, where people were able to sit back and listen to music in a much more relaxed atmosphere than that of today.

There are many great musical artists in Cache Valley. But it seems that the majority of local bands are more of the rock or hard rock genre. We of the Men’s Acappella Chorus of Cache Valley appreciate these genres, but we feel some genres are being neglected in the local music scene. We are not like any other current Cache Valley artist group. While our roots are in choral singing, we are different from the American Festival Chorus, the USU choirs, and the various community choirs. We sing acappella music – meaning no use of instruments. And we perform genres of music that choral groups do not often venture into.

Come enjoy a wonderful time with us at the Logan Summerfest this June! Bring your friends and your family. It’s free! And who can let an opportunity like this slip by?
