- Your mom may have told you not to make loud noises, but these guys are staying busy by doing just that. But it wasn't all beat-boxing Saturday night. The University of Wisconsin-Madison MadHatters are an A Cappella men group formed of 15 singers and a vocal percussionist, but they're not your traditional A Cappella group."I think what separates us from a lot of other groups is that first and for most we're trying to have fun," said Business Manager, Joe Meeker.
"We're trying to have a product that we're really happy with, but at the end of the day we're just doing this to amuse ourselves. We hope that people will like that and we hope that it shows on stage."And by the reaction from the crowd, it seems like they made that happen."It's really good, they do such a good job. It's nice that their a cappella come up and make it funny and talented too." said audience member, Dorothy Johnson. "My favorite part was when he broke it down for the beat boxing," audience member, Karlie Raeka said. "It just intrigues me how it comes out of one person. They're not only popular here in Rhinelander, but they're also well-known across the country."We actually just this winter flew out to Washington D.C. to perform at the white house for guest of the president and first lady." Meeker said.This weekend tickets were sold out, but you have another chance to catch them on April 19th in Madison."Definitely buy your tickets early because they sell really fast." said audience member, Jennine Karaba.
