Since they were founded in 2000, the Bare Naked Statues have gained a reputation among the Saint Louis community for their innovative style, musical talent, and creative performances. Performing selections from artists like Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, half.alive, Justin Timberlake, and even Gavin DeGraw, the variety of musical selections and stylistic arrangements is what sets BNS apart from many other a cappella groups on college campuses. BNS has a mission of bringing a cappella music to the Saint Louis community and beyond.
