Columbia Theatre to present all male a capella group
Contact: Tonya Lowentritt
HAMMOND The Hullabahoos, an all-male a capella group from the University of Virginia, will
perform at Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing
Arts on Friday, March 9.
Sponsored by Christwood Retirement Community, Anthon Chiropractic Care, and the Patty and Paul Hubert Program Endowment, the production begins at 7:30 p.m. in the downtown Hammond theatre.
“The University of Virginia has produced a group that is definitely not your average glee club. The Hullabahoos are the ‘alpha males of acappella,’” said C. Roy Blackwood, Columbia Theatre interim director. “Nuanced and delightfully musical as they are inventive, these guys are highly entertaining and include some ‘home cookin’ in Charles Robert Miller of Hammond. We are fortunate to have them at Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts.”
The Hullabahoos have performed all over the world for the last 23 years, highlighted by appearances in the Philippines, for President Barack Obama in 2011, and former President George W. Bush in 2007.
With 14 studio albums, the Hullabahoos have gained critical acclaim and national attention, having been featured in media outlets such as “GQ,” “US News & World Report,” and “Good Morning America.”
Tickets are $25 and are available at the Columbia Theatre box office on Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. 4 p.m. or by phone at (985) 543-4371. Patrons may also get tickets online at www.columbiatheatre.org.
