Hawaii Tour Highlights

Stressed about classes starting?  Auditions?  New job?  Moving?  Relax and enjoy this video, made by our own Kaveh Veyssi, of our 2013 tour in Hawaii.  If for no other reason, watch to see the moments before Kaveh and Michael get absolutely destroyed by a wave or to see Janie attempting an Australian accent.

AUDITIONS

It’s that time of year again!  With the new school year approaching fast, we’re looking for some talented new babies to join our group.   Our auditions are super laid back – just come prepared with a verse and chorus of any song that you feel shows off your voice (no musical theater please!).  We’re looking for all voice parts.  We promise we’ll be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, even if, like in this picture from last year’s auditions, we’re still going at 5 AM!

Auditions will take place on September 3rd and 4th, location TBD.  Email Tahlib at sQauditions@gmail.com to schedule an auditionor ask any questions about the process.

In the meantime, you can get a feel for what our group is like by visiting our youtube page or exploring our website more!  You can also catch us all week singing in dorms, in Hillel for Bagel Brunch, and in Distler for the a cappella O-Show.  We’re the really hot guys and gals in black and blue singing sweet harmonies and melting your hearts.

We can’t wait to hear you!

Hawaii Highlights: Part I

We’ve had a bunch of incredibly amazing days here in Hawaii.  Here are a few of our best moments so far:

  • Randomly stumbling upon a proposal, which turned out to be a couple from Boston –  Jesse and Caroline!  We sang “Sparks Fly” to congratulate them and watched the incredibly beautiful sunset together from the lava formations at the China Wall in Honolulu.
  • Busking in Waikiki where we were joined in our performance by the cutest toddler who shared his dance moves with us and the crowd.
  • The 30-minute photoshoot that followed a performance at Sacred Hearts Academy.  Somewhere on facebook there is a stockpile of pictures of us with Catholic school girls. Plus somewhere there is documentation of us attempting to Hula dance… hmmmmmmm.
  • The incredible hospitality that the Singer family has shown us.  Their house is beautiful and they have truly gone above and beyond to accomodate us.  Plus Anique is quite the tour guide – most of the places we’ve been would not have happened without her!
  • Our cumulative tan is pretty awesome.

We’d also like to give a huge shoutout to Emily, our business manager, who organized this whole tour.  She’s done an incredible job.

Check out some photos below.  More to come!

Tour 2013: HAWAII

a.aaa-Hawaii-dogsQ! is shipping out to Honolulu, Hawaii in T-5 days.  We are as excited as this super fly dog is (although we are not quite as cool).

We’ll be around the Honolulu area singing (a.k.a. swimming) and performing (a.k.a. tanning) and learning to dance the Hula (for real).

Just a heads up – by the time we come back, we will probably all be this tan:6a00d8341bfd9e53ef01348120bf2d970c-450wi

James Hyde Steals the Show

sQ! has finally made it onto the big screen!*  Check out our big break into stardom, or at least internet-dom, in our appearance on the web series “James Hyde Steals the Show.”  While we’re pretty sure it won’t make us famous, we think it’s at least good enough to win a Daytime Emmy.  Do they have that kind of thing for the internet? A Web-Emmy? A Wemmy?

In all seriousness, filming this was probably one of the most incredible and unique experiences we’ve had.  It’s not often that you get to work with a professional camera crew and guy as awesome as James Hyde as a college a cappella group.  We’re so grateful to have had this opportunity.

Special thanks to Distler Hall, Kaveh’s instagrams, Marty, and of course, star of “Passions,” “The Blackout,” and our personal favorite, “Let’s Talk About Sex,” James Hyde himself.

*That is, if your computer has a very large screen.
