Not one, not two, not three, but four separate Tufts a cappella groups were nominated this week for the 2012 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards (CARA). A big congratulations to the Amalgamates, the Beelzebubs, the Jackson Jills, and sQ! for all their hard work. The winners will be announced on April 13.

It’s been two years since America’s favorite a capella group, The Beelzebubs, took over your television in NBC’s “The Sing Off.” Since then, they’ve sung on Glee, added new members, and said goodbye to their graduating ones. Tufts Admissions hung out with the ‘Bubs to see where they are today and touch on their experiences as a cappella superstars at Tufts.
No no, don’t worry! Their incredible singing hasn’t declined at all! It’s just the name of their fall 2011 show. Concerned? Well see it for yourself, Tufts SQ! is still going strong and they have this explosive a capella cover of Heart’s Barracuda to prove it. Props on the a cappella guitar solos!
Anchord, Tufts’s co-ed Christian a cappella group, addressed the inadequacies of Christian dating in their Spring Show’s skit. Their answer to dating problems was a Christian social media platform aptly named “Faithbook.” In the following video, Ana Carvalho, A13, and Mark Rafferty, A13, act dating interactions via “Faithbook.”
One of the most memorable orientation experiences for incoming first year Jumbos is the first a cappella show of the year: The O-Show, a free performance where Tufts’ favorite a cappella groups welcome the newcomers to our community. One of these favorites is Essence, an all-female a cappella gr0up focused on music of the African Diaspora and African-American Tradition.
Enjoy their O-Show performance of “Good Girl” by Chrisette Michele, featuring soloist Erica Satin-Hernandez, A13:
We all know that Tufts takes its a cappella very seriously, but what you may not know is that this passion has spread to the School of Medicine.

Tufts’ Beelzebubs, the oldest all-male a cappella group on campus, recently put on their annual spring semester show, “Bubs in the Pub.” The show featured costumes and skits in addition to a cappella. Here are some video clips of the night’s performance:
This past weekend, the Tufts Association of South Asians (TASA) put up their annual culture show in Cohen Auditorium. This year, TASA invited Boston University’s Suno, Boston’s first Hindu-fusion a Capella group, to sing at the event. Here’s a video of the performance:

Well, tune in tonight at 8 p.m. EST when you can hear them sing backups for two — yes, two! — songs by the Dalton Academy Warblers, Wings’ “Silly Love Songs” and Robin Thicke’s “When I Get You Alone.” Catch a preview of the latter below:
