Founded in in 1993, the Doo Wop Shop is the oldest (and only all-male) a cappella group at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Despite notable performances including the White House and Radio City Music Hall, the group comes from humble beginnings. A founding member asked some friends to help serenade his special love interest outside her door. As the awkward young men started to sing, other ladies flooded into the hallway to hear them – the Doo Wop Shop has been wooing hearts ever since.
In just two decades, the Doo Wop Shop has established their presence as performers throughout New England and beyond. Though they come from very different musical backgrounds, the members are united by a mutual love of music that spans across decades and genres to create a signature blend of songs both old and new. With one foot in the past and one foot in the present, the Doo Wop Shop has situated themselves as a contemporary a cappella group with timeless appeal.
