Brother to Brother
- By Thomas James Weaver
It’s a long way from Rodgers and Hart’s “Blue Moon” to Cee Lo Green’s… you know, “Forget You.” While the first generation of UVM Top Cats included the former in their repertoire, today’s students cover Cee Lo’s hit (clean version) along with their own share of classics. In between stand thirty years of a cappella music, fun and fellowship for this singing group that has grown into a UVM tradition. To be a Top Cat means sharing a strong bond forged through song and performance -- there’s a lot of trust involved when eleven guys step on stage armed with nothing but their voices.
Note: Pre-med student Devon Barley, currently appearing on NBC's talent search "The Voice," is a member of the spring 2011 Top Cats.
