The Other Guys
Dr. Barrington Coleman, advisor
The Other Guys are a subset of the Varsity Men's Glee Club at the University of Illinois. Known for their impeccable musicality and unique brand of humor, The Other Guys are the University of Illinois’ premiere men’s a cappella group. Since their inception during the 1968-1969 school year, The Other Guys have evolved from an amusing diversion to a popular, high profile, international traveling group of goodwill ambassadors. The current group continues to build on the tradition – a tradition that is characterized by musicianship, comedic spontaneity, and time-honored dignity.
The Other Guys perform at over 100 different venues a year, as well as every Varsity Men’s Glee Club concert. Their resume includes appearing at Chicago’s United Center, Yankee Stadium, Wrigley Field, New York City’s famed Gotham Comedy Club, the Broadway production of "Grease," command performances in Washington, D.C., Google Headquarters, Lucasfilm Inc., Roger Ebert’s 10th Annual Film Festival, copious alumni events throughout the country, and numerous shows in Europe. Your continued support of this group promotes the continuance of a great tradition we call The Other Guys.
