It may be less than shocking to those entrenched in the a cappella world to learn that the world-renowned Tufts Beelzebubs are moonlighting as… a dynamic, successful all-male a cappella group.
For the uninitiated, though, it will be news to know that the Tufts Beelzebubs are also the Dalton Academy Warblers, an all-male a cappella group that went up against fictitious show choir New Directions on Fox’s hit show “Glee.”
From their very first performance of “Teenage Dream” – arranged by prominent former group member Ed Boyer – audiences were hooked. Chris Colfer’s Kurt Hummel wasn’t the only person infatuated with the classic Bubs sound.
That is why “Glee” put out an all Warbler’s album. “Glee: The Music Presents the Warblers” was the seventh studio release for the show. While the lead vocals on this 13-track album were provided by Colfer and recurring guest star Darren Criss, the backgrounds were all Bubs.
The album debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Top 20. and all together, 1.3 million tracks have been sold off of the album. It was another success for ”Glee,” and yet another hit album for the Bubs.
Of course, you can now purchase multiple Bubs albums through A Cappella Records, including their newest work, “BATTLE.” Be sure to check out everything the Bubs have to offer on iTunes – both as the Bubs, and as another successful, critically acclaimed all-male a cappella group.
