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 of singing men 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're all students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Big Red!). Some of us are music students, but not all — At the end of the day we all just love to sing. The number of performers in our roster varies due to the rotating door of graduations, so we hold auditions at the beginning of most semesters. Usually we prefer an ensemble of between 12 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, including 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 relevance, and most importantly: entertainment value.
There's never a dull moment in the pitch-perfect world of A Cappella! 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 Dogs wouldn't be the Dogs without the voices & personalities of each of its current members. Get to know us in the gallery below!
