Tufts sQ! – Bennie and the Jets

The group has four new members this year, and they performed a set of several new songs as well as some old favorites. In this video, sQ! does its sassy take on the Elton John favorite, “Benny and the Jets,” with Emma Hershey, A14, as soloist.

Timeflies + Jumbo Alum = Hit

Continuing their reign of college airwaves and party hits, Timeflies recently delivered their second album to date, Under the Influence. The album is a six-track mixtape that samples artists like The Wanted and Adele in classic party songs like ‘Glad You Came’ and surprisingly touching ones like ‘Someone Like You.’ But the biggest treat for Jumbo listeners is their track ‘The Beginning,’ in which the boys sample the insanely talented Tara Vaughan’s, A10, ‘Better Versions.’ Recognize the voice? Then you probably heard Tara on the hill singing for Tufts SQ!

Support both Jumbo artists by downloading the mixtape here. For more on Timeflies, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

sQ! Brings the Joy of Music to the T

Ever wish that your morning commute was a little less dull? Enter Tufts a cappella sensation sQ! to a crowded MBTA Red Line train, bringing joy to riders (whether they like it or not). The experience was recorded and has been posted on YouTube and UniversalHub. The group did a rendition of summer hit “Ridin’ Solo” by Jason Derulo.

Kristen Ford (E’ 13) provided her pipes as the soloist in this arrangement. In January, the group’s arrangement of “That’s What you Get” by Paramore was selected to be one of 20 groups to be featured on the Best of College A Cappella (BOCA) 2010.  The album also features selections from the Jackson Jills and the Beelzebubs.
