The group consists of 9 members with extensive A Cappella experience. After the Bar prides itself on its close-knit harmonies and custom arrangements. The groups fits well in an array of venues (with or without microphones) and carries repertoire that is diverse enough for almost any occasion. Requests for specific arrangements can also be made for those who want the perfect song for the perfect occasion!

After the Bar was originally founded in 2007 as a post-collegiate A Cappella group composed primarily of alumni from Drexel University’s 8 to the Bar. It has since evolved into a part-time professional group consisting of people from across the tri-state area. They currently have 9 members, although they are capable of performing with as little as 4 if necessary.
