Not Just Any Other Ball

Jack Angus Nevin takes us through the Other Ball.

This past Friday saw Lower College Hall fill with the dulcet tones of some of St Andrews finest vocalists, from both the past and the present. After years of discussion and planning, the collaboration of The Other Guys (TOG) and The Other Guys Alumni (TOGA) resulted in The Other Ball – St Andrews’ finest acapella experience.

For £50, guests were treated to a three course dinner, bottomless supply of wine, a live student band and multiple performances by one of St Andrews’ most prestigious acapella groups. Greeted by a traditional piper, it was made immediately obvious to guests upon entry that it would definitely be a Friday the 13th to remember.

To celebrate ten years of The Other Guys, past and present members alike came together multiple times in the night to create unique renditions of classic Other Guys hits such as “It’s Raining Men,” “Bad Romance,” and, of course, “St Andrews Girls.” The crowd, made up of the invited friends and families of the current Other Guys, could not have been more receptive, going wild in every sense of the word as the sharply dressed singers crooned the night away. The ball not only celebrated the past and future success of The Other Guys, but also supported and raised awareness for one of the UK’s leading mental health charities, Heads Together.

Each table of ten guests was decorated according to the theme of a specific Other Guys song or album, with complimentary copies of classic albums strewn across tables for all to enjoy. After a rich dinner, at which the cups were never allowed to run dry, the night moved upstairs to the second floor of the hall where the revelry really began. Bowties were undone, heels were removed and all inhibitions were forgotten. Perhaps it was the power of acapella, or perhaps it was the copious amount of wine we were provided, but I’ve never seen a ball dance floor so lively. Moving slightly away from acapella, dance music was then provided by the well known student DJs Teresa St Goar and Joe Grimeh.

The welcoming venue and exclusive invite list of just 150 people resulted in a very intimate night. Our smiles were wide and our ears were ringing from a night filled with male acapella as we departed Lower College Hall at the conclusion of the night around 1 AM. The Other Ball was a flawlessly executed night which left all attendants hungering for the next Other Guys experience – which happens to be a charity concert for the For Her Project to be held in Buchanan Lecture Theatre on Tuesday 7 November.
