Tufts' Oldest male A cappella Group
As Tufts University’s oldest male a cappella group, the Beelzebubs have always been at the forefront of contemporary a cappella. From Boston to Buenos Aires, the Bubs bring music to life. Whether performing as a 1960's eight-man barbershop group or as the voices of the Warblers on Fox's Glee, the Bubs have been bringing our motto of “Fun Through Song” to the world since 1963.
"After four years in the Bubs, I said, 'I want everyone to have the amazing experiences I've had: the connections with others, the experiences, the groundbreaking harmony.' My life's work, to spread harmony through harmony, grew directly out of my days singing and directing the group. I joke that I didn't go to Tufts University, I went to Beelzebubs University"

The alumni of this group are what make it truly special - they shaped the Bubs into what it is today. With over 300 members, the Beelzebub Alumni Association is extremely active in helping the current group and ensuring that Bubs from every generation are connected.
BUBS GIVE BACK
More than anything, the Beelzebubs value bringing music and fulfillment to everyone. To achieve this goal, the Bubs along with a passionate group of alumni began the Bubs Foundation and the Be the Music Program. The Bubs Foundation is an organization that aims to bring music education to communities in Boston where music education is underfunded. Be the Music is a program where Bubs and alumni join in harmony with these students, exposing them to the rich world of contemporary a cappella.
Our Latest Release: Full Rally (2018)
The release of Full Rally marks the culmination of three generations of Bubs’ dedication to music. Traditionally, albums are released in alternating years, but Full Rally came to the stage three years after “In the Book”, meaning there are more voices on the album than usual. The album showcases voices across six class years, and all three freshmen at the time of its release have solos. Our goal was to choose songs across a wide range of artists and genres, and to create parts that keep the listener with us through the emotional journey of each song. To us, Full Rally and its artwork signify the connection we have not only to each other, but also to those no longer in the group who play a role on this album, and to our incredibly supportive alumni network. We are beyond excited that it’s finally out for the world to hear, and we hope you love it as much as we do.
The Tufts Beelzebubs have been honored to perform for incredible audiences, from Presidents to preschoolers, for over 50 years.
Let the Bubs make our motto of "Fun Through Song" come true at your next wedding, school event or concert.
