Hyannis Sound, Cape Cod’s all-male professional a cappella group, is back on Cape next weekend for their annual winter tour. The weekend is the final opportunity to hear the group’s best songs from 2017. If you missed them this past summer, now is your chance! Here’s the concert schedule:
The show is perfect for both regular Hyannis Sound attendees and those who have never seen these young men in concert before. Hear about their live shows from one of their biggest fans:
“Their concerts are about so much more than their music. These talented, hard-working and caring young men share a part of themselves with their audience every night. They've embraced me as part of their family. As such, they put the sunshine in my summer (or winter, in this case!) and a smile in my heart!" - Paula
Hyannis Sound is also making waves in the recorded a cappella scene. This past summer the group released their latest studio album, Boys of Summer, which was met with critical acclaim. The album is up for 6 CARA nominations (Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards) and scored a 5/5 review from RARB (Recorded A Cappella Review Board). Read RARB’s review of Boys of Summer here.

With the recent surge in the popularity of a cappella music thanks to movies like Pitch Perfect, the competition is fiercer than ever. But at the end of the day, the young men that make up the Hyannis Sound are just grateful for the opportunity to make music that people love, and are eager to reconvene for their Winter Tour.
According to Jon Smith, a notable Hyannis Sound alum, the album’s recent recognition is hard work paid off. “Hyannis Sound has a longstanding tradition of successful studio albums, and I’m really proud that Boys of Summer is no different. This really makes all of the hard work worth it. There were some days that we recorded from the moment we woke up until the moment we had to leave for a concert. Everyone who worked on the album put in 110%, and I’m really proud of the product that’s come out of that”.
“It feels so awesome to be recognized for all of the hard work that our alumni put into producing Boys of Summer,” says Peter Carboni, the group’s public relations coordinator. “We really owe it to them as well as the community on here on Cape. Without either them, none of this would be possible”.
