I love my summer job, but I think the men of the Vineyard Sound might have an even better deal that I do (the Cape Cod Leaguers probably have the best job, to be fair).
The Vineyard Sound is an all-male a cappella group made up of college guys from around the Northeast. They come out here in early June and then…basically spend the whole summer performing in concert around the Island. That’s it. That’s their summer job. I mean, wow.
I actually went to this shoot as a backup measure- it hadn’t been assigned specifically but the Gazette usually does a huge feature on the Sound each year, and I wanted to make sure we had photos from their big Midsummer Concert, which was held at the Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs (same place where my cousin’s graduation was). (I also wanted to hear them sing, because I love a cappella music).
I’d really like to do a multimedia piece on the group eventually (I suspect it would be very similar to the Hickman band piece I already did, but I don’t care). I’m not sure that I’m the, um, right gender to get the necessary access and do the piece justice, though. But maybe I could pull it off. You never know.
