Tone Down for What: The Other Ball Reviewed

Our Deputy Events Editor reviews The Other Ball.

Following a year of triumph and successes, St. Andrews’ most prolific acapella group once again proved that they know exactly how to put on a night like no other in St. Andrews. Held in the Lower and Upper College Halls on the thirteenth of October, the 2nd annual “The Other Ball” satisfied guests and elevated the name of the Other Guys higher than ever before. The ball not only celebrated the past, present and future success of The Other Guys, but also supported one of the UK’s leading mental health charities, Heads Together.

Those lucky family and friends who were invited by The Other Guys enjoyed a champagne reception, three course dinner, a seemingly endless supply of wine, after-party, and – of course – plentiful acapella. Differing from last year, those who didn’t attend the sit-down dinner were able to purchase after-party tickets. With a live band, acapella performances and a DJ, guests were extremely satisfied with the continuous entertainment throughout the night.

Surrounded by their closest friends and family, the past and present members of the Other Guys joined their voices together in perfect harmonies twice in the night, crooning out their classic hits such as “It’s Raining Men”, “St. Andrews Girls” and “Fix You.” Each table of ten guests was themed to a specific Other Guys song such as “Backstreet’s Back”, “I See You” and “Royal Romance,” with complimentary copies of their records provided as party favours.

The night was a true celebration of all that the Other Guys have accomplished in the past year; a North American tour, a successful show at the Fringe and a new popular single – 24k Megan. This, their fifteenth year at St. Andrews, is sure to be another one for the books – with 5 new members joining the ranks.

The exclusivity of the invite to the dinner and intimate venue, hosting just 150 people, resulted in an extremely familial and close night. Undeniably, The Other Ball was flawlessly executed. Guests departed the hall around 1 AM with their ears left ringing, reminiscing on a fantastic night and already hungering for their next Other Guys experience.

To see what all the fuss is about, keep a look out for future Other Guys’ events and be sure to save the date of their upcoming Christmas concert at the Byre Theatre on December 11th.

  12. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.|

  13. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always helpful to read articles from other authors and practice a little something from their websites. |

  14. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.

  15. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!|

  16. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!|
