We are the Bathtub Dogs.
The premier all-male a cappella group at the university of nebraska–lincoln.
Back in 2002, UNL Students Scott Wilson and Aaron Hurlbut gathered a group of their most talented buddies to sing songs together. Since then, the group has developed into a nationally-ranked a cappella group known as the "Bathtub Dogs." Our goal as a performing ensemble is simple: To entertain.
Who are we?
We are a group of guys who are all studying at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Big Red!). Our members study a variety of subjects, but at the end of the day we all love to make music. The number of singers in the group often varies due to members graduating, so we hold auditions at the beginning of most semesters. We like to keep our ensemble total between 15 and 20.
WHAT DO WE SING?
Our song selection changes about as often the weather in Nebraska does (that's a lot, if you didn't know). We sing a variety of musical styles, such as pop, rock, country, R&B, jazz, secular holiday, non-secular holiday, musical theatre, and folk. The things that matter most to us when choosing songs are musical quality, audience popularity, and entertainment value.
Currently, our membership sits at 19, which is plenty of dogs in one bathtub. We dropped a BRAND NEW album called "Recess" in October 2016, and would love for you to be able to hear it – check out our STORE for swag, downloads, and other goodies!
the btd's aren't the btd's without the voices & contributions of each of its current members. Get to know us in the gallery below!
Services We Provide
We know that if you book us to perform for you, there will be singing involved. We are used to meeting the specific needs of our clients, though, and are prepared to help you however necessary.
We like to consider ourselves professional communicators. If you send us an email or call us to book a performance, you can rest easy knowing we'll respond in a timely fashion. We will work with you until a performance agreement is met!
Our fully-functional sound system, which includes 2 bass and 2 treble speakers, high-quality microphones, cords, stands, and a sound board, is able to be transported to and from our office for events. Let us know if you want us to use it at YOUR event!
The Bathtub Dogs have produced several studio albums, which have received great reviews on iTunes and Spotify. We have hard-copy CD's of these albums which we are more than happy to bring to events for purchase.
Looking for some interactive work? Singing IS our strong suit, but in the past we have done a number of audience-involved activities during shows, including a beat-boxing tutorial, impromptu skits, etc.
Get in touch with us – We'd love to come sing for you some time!
