It’s raining talent

Barometer BoysThe Barometer Boys heat up Waterloo’s Got Talent

Last Friday, the Federation of Students hosted Waterloo’s Got Talent and a capella group The Barometer Boys took home the $500 grand prize for their rendition of “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls.

The Barometer Boys first got together last October when fourth-year students Sam, Caio, and Zach decided they wanted to create a group with a “boy band vibe”. They were soon joined by third-year Luc Larocque’s deep bass voice and fourth-year Steve Jeon’s beat boxing.

After an exciting debut at the University of Waterloo A Capella Club's End of Term Concert, they decided to enter Waterloo’s Got Talent. Since Steve had left Waterloo for a work term, the newest member, Adrian Ang, took over vocal percussion for their first place performance.

“We are thrilled to have won the competition. It pushes us to want to come out with new material and to continue to perform,” said Zach on their big win. The Barometer Boys plan to keep performing and expanding their repertoire over the summer.

You can keep up with them on the Barometer Boys Facebook page, watch the full Waterloo’s Got Talent event, or soak up their performance of “It’s Raining Men” below.
