Tufts’ annual homecoming a cappella show was a huge hit with students and alumni alike, as the Amalgamates, Jackson Jills, and Beelzebubs preformed to an enthusiastic audience in Goddard Chapel. Each group was excited to show off their new members, as well as their exciting new repertoire of songs.
Here’s a clip of the Bubs performing Bonnie Tyler’s 1984 hit, “Holding Out For A Hero.”
This past weekend, our Jumbos faced the Trinity College Bantams and the Williams College Ephs! Before heading to the fields, Coach Jay Civetti discussed the team both post-practice and at the New England Football Writers luncheon:
The silky smooth vocals of popular Cee-Lo song “Forget You” got the Jackson Jills’ treatment at this year’s Homecoming A Cappella Show. The song has gained popularity through it’s kinetic typography video on Youtube, and has began radio airplay on many top 40 stations. Soloist Amanda Garces (A ’11) belts out the lyrics while the rest of the Jills provide the soulful chorus and beats in the background. The piece was arranged by Hannah Shefsky (A ’11).
