The Devils are known for their tight harmonies, polished sound, complex arrangements, and infectious sense of fun. Their diverse, constantly growing repertoire includes every genre of music imaginable, from techno pop, to indie ballads, to classic rock, to sexy jazz, to Beyoncé. 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.
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 group ultimately took its name from the universally-loved campus dessert (of ice cream, brownies and marshmallow cream), the "Vassar Devil".
Outside of the Vassar scene, every year the Devils travel to new places, bringing their music and group energy to colleges, churches, high schools, art museums, and street corners up and down the East Coast. On their Florida trip, they even serenaded the Coast Guard from the deck of a boat in Ft. Lauderdale harbor. The Devils love to share their music and bring new people into their constantly growing a cappella family.
