On Friday night, the Jake Nevin Fieldhouse showcased Villanova’s eight a cappella groups in an exciting night of music, lights and choreography. A Cappella Palooza began at 8 p.m, and audience members were required to purchase tickets from Villanovatix prior to attending. 

The Palooza captured the talent of the Haveners, Measure Up, Minor Problem, Nothing But Treble, Sirens, Spires, Supernovas and Vocal Minority. Each group brought a unique style of performance to the showcase, and the night was full of excitement and a shared love of music. From the compelling vocals and stunning choreography to the hosts’ Pitch Perfect-esque jokes, the night was bound to be a great success. 

This year’s show was the first to embrace the pre-pandemic traditions of A Cappella Palooza, and the excitement of everyone in attendance reflected such a tremendous moment. Each group appeared truly elated to be back performing, and their infectious energy resonated throughout the audience. The feelings captured by each performance, from the emotional ballads to nostalgic songs, gave the night a sentimental atmosphere. 

“This year’s Palooza was everything we hoped for and more,” Minor Problem member Skylar Musick said. “It felt amazing to be singing on stage together with lights and choreography.”

During the showcase, each group performed three songs, and there was something for everyone, whether it was 90s throwbacks or chart-toppers. These songs, combined with fun choreography and amazing outfits, made each performance lovely to watch, and everyone was excited for more. 

For the audience, it was obvious that each group was proud to be back performing and genuinely happy to participate in the showcase. 

“I could not be more proud of all eight groups,” Musick said. “We are truly a family. Everyone is so talented and absolutely killed it tonight.” 

The night was a huge accomplishment for each group, and as always, A Cappella Palooza was a night one would not want to miss.
