sounds good to me sounds good to me in

the words of one of their trademark songs the uvm top cats are talking about soul to soul brother the brother and they've been at it for three decades in Saturday februari 26 the male student acapella group will celebrate their 30th anniversary with a special concert a Tyrell and Chapel as alumni make plans to dust off their own harmonies for the show we checked in with today's top cats for a look and a listen it doesn't really feel like it's a club that I'm going to a meeting of it just kind of these guys quickly become your best friends that I consider these guys like the closest friends I've had some of the you know since i since i came to colleges practice ahead of us you want to do it's nice to have such a cohesive sound I mean that's that's what everyone says in the group is we we love not having instruments because all of us individually are making the sound with ourselves in town it's like a band in the different vowels that you use in different songs they it changes the whole quality of the song which i think is kind of cool because instead of saying like Joe or something you could

say za and it totally changes how the song sounds I'm a pre-med major so I have a lot of other work but it's nice to take my mind off of all the science part of my life which is a very large part and to just do something that I love there's actually going to be some competitiveness I'm sure at the concert because there's going to be a lot of people who are going to want to say our group from this 10-year span when we were at school how we're the best I don't know that right I don't think that there was the sense back then of we're going to start a long tradition it may be that some of the guys thought of that but mostly it was we did this where we came from we'd like to keep doing it we like to keep singing and this is a this is a vehicle for us to surprise my eyes doesn't wanna love wait that on my mom um would you meet my little bah bah bah just a little I'll just out now oh yeah the trouble but don't say I just get me listen dude I can do i do do I could do i do do what I do i do I do Oh dawn Jim do I
