Sons of the Day, an all-male a cappella singing group based in

the hopes of keeping alive the rich musical heritage of the Valley.
Matthew Hunsberger and Clay Showalter, co-founders of the group,
indicate their commitment to furthering the tradition of a cappella
music declaring in the group’s mission statement that they hope to
“Explore cultures of a cappella singing from various eras and
genres…” and “Offer educational opportunities to those interested in
continuing the tradition of a cappella music.” Another part of the
group’s mission is to provide an opportunity for ministry as the group
seeks to “Present the gospel in an approachable way by combining songs
of faith and everyday life…”
Sons of the Day has sung in a wide variety of settings since it’s
inception in November of 2003 and is available to sing at events
ranging from church services, civic events, corporate events, weddings,
and a host of occasions in between.
