Spring Tour Venues and Times

Next weekend, March 28th and 29th, the Hyannis Sound will be making our 20th annual trek to the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire. As always, the shows will feature not only current members of the group, but also favorite alumni from years past, as well as (possibly) some brand new group members.

The first performance will be in Woodstock, VT, on Saturday, March 28th at 7:30pm. The Universalist Church directly off the Green will be hosting us for the umpteenth year in a row.

The next day, Sunday, March 29th, we will be performing in the Lyme Congregational Church in Lyme, NH at 2pm. The church is directly on the green.

We could not be more excited for Tour! It is always one of the highlights of the year, and is a great way to know that we are all one step closer to summer. We hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Welcome Hyannis Sound 2015!

Another awesome weekend of auditions for Hyannis Sound. This past weekend 8 members of Hyannis Sound 2014 headed to Boston to hear some phenomenally talented guys. After narrowing down an initial pool of approximately 60 people down to 23 candidates, we spent the weekend listening to our final choices for the group. The room was brimming with talent which made our final decision very difficult. At the end of the day, we could not be happier with our decisions! Without further ado, the newest members of the Hyannis Sound:

 

Jason Berk

Jason is a sophomore at Elon University studying Strategic Communication and Entrepreneurship (say that three times fast). He’s a really honest guy with a big smile and a killer broadway-style voice. We had a great time getting to know Jason this weekend and we can’t wait for you all to meet him!

Here’s Jason singing “Just the Girl” by The Click Five

Ryan LaForest

Ryan was our smallest auditionee, but that didn’t stop him from leaving one of the biggest impressions on us. He’s a sophomore at the Berklee College of Music where he sings with the CharlieChords. Ryan really blew us away with his breath-taking rendition of And So it Goes. We’re certain you’ll fall in love with him quickly. 

Here’s Ryan singing “Oblivion” by Bastille with the CharlieChords at the ICCAs (3:35)

Grayson Kilgo

Grayson is a sophomore at the College of William & Mary where he sings with and is assistant music director of the Gentlemen of the College. He’s an incredible musician having played classical saxophone for 12 years and will be a great musical asset to the group. Grayson is a really genuine guy and we’re really excited to have him on board. 

Here’s Grayson giving you a little JT action with his solo on “That Girl”

Jared Graveley

Jared is a sophomore at UConn studying music. Jared will be a utility man for the group; he has a resonant baritone voice, awesome vocal percussion skills and can arrange as well. In addition to his insane musical skills, Jared is a former wrestler and loves to stay fit. We’re excited for him to whip us all into tip-top shape this summer.

Here’s Jared duetting “Bring It On Home to Me” by Sam Cooke, he’s the one with the bright golden locks.

In addition to our incredible new guys, Jon, Alex, Sean, Mike, Nick Oberlies, and Nick Cipriano will all be returning this summer. We are so excited to give you what we hope will be the best Hyannis Sound season yet!

Today's Show Canceled

Due to the inclement weather expected today, we regretfully have decided to cancel our 2pm show at the Dennis Union Church. We wanted nothing more than to perform in Dennis today, however for our own safety during our travels home, we felt this was best.

Thanks to everyone for making Winter Tour possible and a blast. See you in Vermont for spring tour!
