Hyannis Sound Weekly Concert: Hyannis!   6/9-8/18

August 18, 2017 8:00 pm

After two long weeks of daily rehearsals, Cape Cod’s very own Boys of Summer would like to extend an invitation to their weekly concert series. Our Friday night concerts are in Hyannis at the Federated Church @ 8:00 pm!

The Hyannis Sound is a one of a kind a Capella experience. Performing both privately and publicly across Cape Cod, the Hyannis Sound is known for warming the hearts of all who spend their summers on Cape Cod- using just their voices! Widely known for their timeless sound that spans decades of pop, rock, jazz, R&B and even choral pieces, the Hyannis Sound is a highlight of the Cape Cod summers we’re all fortunate enough to experience.

According to a long time fan, Everett, “Going to see Hyannis Sound shows each summer has become a family tradition. We especially like the way the whole group interacts with the audience members after shows. If you want to hear some great a cappella and make new friends, get to a show, or 8 or 9! See you there!”

Keep up with the Hyannis Sound on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Find their music on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play.

Despite being a familiar sight all over the Cape, the Hyannis Sound is available for private functions. For booking inquiries, please contact their business manager,  Jason (jason@hyannissound.org).

See you soon!
