MadHatters In History

The MadHatters, based out of Madison, Wisconsin, are the premier men’s a cappella group of the UW campus. Founded in 1997, the MadHatters were the first of its kind at UW and have seen their humble beginnings boom into sold out shows across campus filled with adoring fans. Comprised of up to 15 singers and a vocal percussionist, the MadHatters croon the songs of decades past to the Top 40 present.

Built on the foundation of goofy guys making good music and bringing fun to the community, the MadHatters have achieved much success in their short life. From filling the seats at Madison’s historic Orpheum Theatre and acclaimed Overture Centre, to singing for the guests of President Barack Obama and the first Lady Michelle Obama twice, to travelling across the United States and Mexico, the MadHatters seem to have their world on a string and their opportunities endless.

Currently, the MadHatters have one live album, seven studio albums and are working on their eighth studio recording to be released within the next couple of years. Their first album released in 2002, State Street, had a track earn a spot on the 2002 Best of College A Cappella (BOCA) CD, and is credited as the first a cappella album recorded in 5.1 Dolby Digital Sound. Their second album, 2004’s Friday After Class, exploded their fan base, becoming a “best seller” on a cappella websites around the world. Not For Credit, their third studio release, was produced in 2007 and received two national recording awards, including another BOCA inclusion with “I Believe (When I Fall in Love).” The fourth album, Random Play, was released at their April 10, 2010 show, and was followed by Cheer on Tap, a holiday album filled with songs for merrymaking and joy which was released at the MadHatters' Fall 2010 Show. All Nighter, their sixth studio album was released in Spring 2012 on the 15th Anniversary show of the MadHatters. Their newest album, Red White and Blazers, is a collection of  Game day songs cherished by Badger fans everywhere. From the Quintessential Badger Fight song "On Wisconsin", to the famous "Jump around", to a medley of fifth quarter favorites, this Game-Day EP will be sure to get you in the mood for anything and everything UW-Madison.


With their unmistakable attire in their Wisconsin red jackets, the MadHatters are a presence on the UW campus that brings everyone to clap their hands and stomp to the beat. Not only does the audience enjoy the show, but the MadHatters love performing it. Whether it be another sold out show in Madison or singing at your grandma’s 80th birthday party, the MadHatters bring the fun wherever they go.

They’ll dance, they’ll shout (shout!) and they’ll shake your bodies down to the ground. They are the UW MadHatters.

Thank you for your interest in the group - we'd love to see you at a show sometime soon!!!
