UMass Amherst's Oldest Mixed A Cappella Group
The Vocal Suspects is the oldest (and funkiest) mixed a cappella group at UMass Amherst. Founded in 1999, The Vocal Suspects have always had a reputation of blending contagious energy with adept musicality. Their arrangements are innovative and electrifying, and over the past two decades, they have continuously reshaped their sound to incorporate the new talent that is brought in each year.
What defines the Vocal Suspects? Aside from being self-arranging, self-choreographing, and brimming with enthusiasm for a cappella, all members share two essential characteristics; a deep love for music performance and for one another. The 'Spects are unique in their ability to balance the dichotomy of being a close-knit musical family and a group that prides itself in professionalism and excellence.
The Vocal Suspects have developed an ever-evolving repertoire of songs that keeps their performances fresh and their audience members in awe. However, the group ultimately maintains their cutting-edge sound by electing to sing songs that they enjoy themselves. Above all, the Vocal Suspects are all about bringing positive energy and good music to wherever they are called.
