2018 Doo Wop Shop AUDITIONS!
We are holding our auditions for the 2018/19 academic year on September 6th and 7th! After saying goodbye to our four seniors from last year, we are searching for a bunch of UMass boys who sing, beatbox, and/or arrange music to join us for a year that is sure to be spectacular. All that is needed to be prepared is one verse and chorus of a song of the auditioners choosing. For more information regarding our audition process, check out the "Auditions" page of this site!

To our wonderful fans,
After rehearsing for months, recording for a week, and receiving all the support we needed from our incredible fans, our album has been released! Thank you so much to everybody who contributed to our kickstarter or sent us words of encouragement over social media. We couldn't have done this without you! You are truly an inspiration to us.
From May 23rd through May 27th, we were in Rochester, NY recording at Sled Dog Studios with the terrific production team of The Vocal Company. For the 11 of us, it was an experience we won't soon forget. Although the days were long and hours plenty, recording was an absolute thrill the whole way through. We grew closer as friends and tighter as a group, and were able to accomplish things as musicians that we never had before.
We're really excited about how everything went, and we are thrilled to present to you our finished product!
With Love, The Doo Wop Shop

A December to Remember During Winter Break of December 2014, The Doo Wop Shop had the incredible opportunity to perform at the White House and Radio City Music Hall in the same week! Getting to open for the Rockettes and perform for the President and First Lady left the group incredibly excited and humbled. Thank you to everyone who made our whirlwind of a trip possible!
