Westview Health Care Center was revisited by ten members of the all-male, a cappella group, The Dissipated Eight, from Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont on Friday, February 10, 2017 for a lively performance.
The Dissipated Eight, also known as the D8, is considered a contemporary a cappella group with the inclusion of vocal percussion and beatboxing in their performance. The group, formed in 1952, have been performing nationally and internationally for over five decades; assimilating new undergraduate members upon the graduation of their current seniors.
Using only their voices as instruments, the group performed a wide range of musical selections for the residents of Westview including: “Sh-Boom”, “The Thing About Love”, “Running to Stand Still” and “All Along the Watchtower”.
“We’re really excited to have been invited back to Westview,” remarked Harrison Shroder, Music Director. “We’re glad to spread our passion for music with all of Westview’s residents and staff today.”
“Westview is fortunate to be able to provide our patients and residents with first rate entertainment offerings such as The Dissipated Eight,” stated David T. Panteleakos. “Their harmonic and unique performance is always a joy for all of us to witness and experience.”
