Athfest 2011: the UGA Accidentals show us their style

Saturday, June 25th, 2011
the UGA Accidentals

Saturday morning, I awoke, pumped for another day of Athfest. Just after I arrived at the Pulaski Street Stage, the UGA Accidentals, an-all male a cappella group that's said to be one of the best in the world, stepped up to kick off the show. Wow, these guys were good! As an ensemble, they had an unbelievable vocal range. With only their voices expertly blending together, they gave us their versions of everything from current pop tunes to traditional UGA songs from many decades ago. Adding more than just a touch of humor to most of the songs, they spiced up the show with choreographed dances and, at one point, even pulled a girl from the crowd to serenade her. Such personality! Best of all, they performed an awesome rendition of Cee-Lo Green's Forget You and gave us a hilarious medley of hip hop tunes as well. Their undeniable talent and unique style was definitely an exciting change of pace, and I'd love the chance to see them again!
