The Brown Alumni Club of Austin Presents: The Brown Derbies at 4th Tap Brewing Co-Op! 

"Founded in 1982, The Brown Derbies of Brown University have since become one of the most well-known collegiate a cappella groups in the country. Their repertoire spans a variety of different genres, ranging from Rock to Barbershop to R&B to Pop, and they always feature incredible harmony and humor. 

Since their founding, The Derbies have released 12 studio albums. While the Derbies have a long tradition of on-campus performance, they also go on annual domestic and international tours, recently having visited Beijing, Shanghai, London, Amsterdam, Belgium, Paris, Cancun, L.A., Las Vegas, and San Francisco. The Derbies can be found performing at weddings, other colleges, and even the White House (where in 1997, the Derbies were honored to sing for President Bill Clinton!). In more recent years, the Derbies have made it to the semifinals of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, and performed in the London A Cappella Festival with some of the finest a cappella groups across the pond!

Over the years the Derbies have experienced many changes in repertoire and style, but certain things have always remained true. All Derbies sport the signature vest and bowler derby, can sing up a storm, and will do it with charm sure to please the crowd."
