About Us

8 to the Bar is the only all male A Cappella group at Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA). Founded in 1997 as Drexel’s first recognized A Cappella group, we’ve been making sweet A Cappella music for quite a while.


The most unique thing about our group is that we come from various majors, ethnicities, and backgrounds. This presents us with the challenge of finding music that fits with the whole group. Instead of just doing the top 10 songs on the radio, or songs that have been horribly overplayed, we try to mix it up. We sing contemporary music from all genres. We’ve had set lists where we’ve gone from EDM to Traditional A Cappella, Pop-Rock to Classic Rock, Reggae to Classical, and Oldies to Modern Rock. With such a wide variety, we have no doubt you’ve heard at least one of our songs – and we’ll hopefully introduce you to a few artists you haven’t heard of before.

If you’re a member of another A Cappella group and would like to invite us to sing at your university/college, feel free to Contact Us. We’re always on the lookout for a good show.

Also, ladies – if you’re interested in singing A Cappella and think this is the only group here at Drexel University, think again! Our sister group, The Treblemakers, an all female A Cappella group, is awesome! If you would like to learn more about them, visit their website here.

If you’re interested in a mixed male and female group, check out Drexel’s co-ed A Cappella group, The Cleftomaniacs.  To learn more, head over here.
