The Hullabahoos were founded at the University of Virginia in 1987, when some guys got together and said “Hey, let’s sing… and wear robes while we do it.”  So they did. And they still do. Over the last 28 years, the group has been fortunate enough to perform all over the world and gain national and critical acclaim for their music.  Some of the most memorable performances were in the Philippines, for President George W. Bush in 2007, for the Washington Nationals at the Nike Headquarters in Portland, OR, and for President Obama both at the Democratic Caucus and the White House in 2013. More recently, the Hullabahoos made their big screen debut, appearing in the movie Pitch Perfect and on America’s hit television show, The Office. In addition to being hired for events around the world, the Hullabahoos hold annual Fall, Winter and Spring concerts at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA.

      The Hullabahoos have also had the opportunity to record 19 studio albums, which have helped the group gain much praise and national recognition. Tracks from the group’s albums have been featured on the Best of College A Cappella (BOCA) compilation album 6 times,  and since 2004, the group has had the privilege of being featured on Voices Only, won National Collegiate Album of the Year and has been featured by media outlets including GQ, US News & World Report and Good Morning America.
