Fun Fact: Did you know that the Vassar Devils were named after the famous campus dessert, the Vassar Devil (consisting of ice cream, fudge, brownies, and marshmallow cream?). The original recipe for the Vassar Devil is long lost, though many interpretations are baked at campus events at Vassar.

THE VASSAR DEVILS...

are known for our tight harmonies, polished sound, complex arrangements, and infectious sense of fun. Our diverse, constantly growing repertoire includes every genre of music imaginable, from pop hits, to indie ballads, to classic rock, to sexy jazz, to Beyoncé (and even some original music written by our members!). In addition to performing a number of informal concerts for the Vassar community, every year the Devils hold a winter final concert and spring final concert. We are also in the middle of recording a professional studio album, to be released mid-2016! Basically we sing, we laugh, we love, and then we sing some more! 

 

The Vassar Devils were started in the fall of 1987, and are now one of six co-ed a cappella groups at Vassar. The group was formed when two members of a different campus a cappella group fell in love and, forbidden by their group to be together, split off and formed their own group.


The Devils put forth what was absolutely one of the best sets of the evening. This group’s big sound was a highlight of the competition.

The Devils made a bold choice to bring an original song to competition, and I thought that it really paid off in this instance by giving them a unique, memorable song that they could connect to on a level that no other group could really match at this semifinal. Outstanding song.
— Mike Scalise (ACB) on ICCA Northeast Semifinals 2015
They started small then let the sound spread across the group into a magnificent swell. This mastery of dynamics really lent the group an edge and intensity from the get-go.
