Former Bubs work on “Pitch Perfect”

Pitch Perfect, an edgy new film about college a cappella, hits the big screen next week. When you hear the film’s fun mashups and rockin’ tunes, know that two former Jumbos are behind the movie’s unique soundtrack–Ed Boyer and Deke Sharon, former members of the Tufts Beelzebubs, collaborated on Pitch Perfect’s pop rhythms and bubble gum remixes. Boyer, who did the musical arrangements for Glee’s Warblers, and Sharon, who is often considered a leader in the a cappella community, worked to make Pitch Perfect’s unique mash-ups into a cappella masterpieces. And with a star-studded cast–including Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow–Pitch Perfect is all about showcasing vocal talent: It’s a grown-up Glee, of sorts. Make sure to check it out on October 5th!

Here’s the cast performing an a cappella mash-up of Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way you Are” and Nelly’s “Just a Dream”:
