Post-Semester Catch-Up

Wow, it's been sooo long since the last post! My b. Obviously, a lot has happened in the past three months. We sang around campus on Valentine's Day serenading some lucky people with songs like Goodnight Sweetheart or the My Girl/Ignition (Remix)/My Humps mash up. Nothing says you're special like, "mama rollin' that body, got every man in here wishin'." Click here to watch the 8 sing one of its signature V-Day songs.

The 8 also sang during Colby's annual Dragball. This year "Dragball 3: Return of the Queen" was another success, following last year's amazing turnout and performances. The Colby 8 did not disappoint with two racy songs, like The Princes Papuli and Straight People, inspired by Randy Newman's Short People. The 8 has sung it's share of dragappella, but we've also sung for prospective students.

The admissions office had several days of admitted students' days on the hill, so the Colby 8 made sure to pop in and give the prospies, as we like to call them on the hill, a taste of Colby's a cappella scene. (Thanks for having us, Sandra and Janice!)

We also had an amazing surprise from two Colby alumni from the Class of 1963. Peter and Cy, both Colby 8ers (!!!), reconnected with the group. Peter emailed us about the group and sent an AWESOME pic from his days with the 8. Here's the pic:

Awesome, right?! Cy was able to pay us a visit and rehearse with us, too! Click here to watch the Colby 8 sing Mood Indigo with Cy! 

And, of course, we had our end of the year concert! On Wednesday, April 25th, a ton of Colby 8 fans witnessed glory, and they loved it. Click here to watch videos of our concert! A HUGE thank you to all of our fans who came out to watch us. We really appreciate the support!

One love,
The 8

P.S. Here's a pic of the Colby 8 with Cy after the concert!
