RIT's original all-male a cappella group

About Eight Beat Measure

Hailing from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Eight Beat Measure is the original all-male a cappella group on campus. Eight Beat Measure began in 1987 as the RIT Men's Octet. Originally faculty-lead and formed as an extension to the RIT Singers, they quickly expanded their horizons and branched into the world of contemporary a cappella, changing their name to Eight Beat Measure to reflect the new attitude, and expanding from only 8 members. The group currently sings hip-hop to rock and Celtic to pop, so there is something for everyone in their repertoire. They have traveled to Boston, Long Island, Connecticut, Michigan, North Carolina and everywhere in between. With a new look, a new CD, and a new attitude, Eight Beat continues to raise the heat for their audience.
