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.
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!!!
