The Brown Derbies of Brown University are an all-male a cappella chorus known across the country for their lively performances, humorous antics, and innovative recordings. Founded in 1986, they have been around for over a quarter of a century, producing 10 full albums in the process. From the barbershop sounds of “Derby Laundry” (1989) to the Pop and Alternative of “Ridin’ Derby,” (2008) the Brown Derbies have come a long way since they the first Derby donned a matching hat and vest. The tracks “In Your Eyes” and “Telephone Message” were featured in the “Best of College a Cappella” series CDs, and their 1997 release “Nightcap” received top honors at the Contemporary a Cappella Recording Awards, winning Best Song, Arrangement, Soloist and Album. They have performed for the President in the White House, on the National Mall, and underneath the Christmas tree in the Rockefeller Center, and they hope to someday be the first a cappella group to perform a concert entirely on Segways. They’re always busy, so check out what they’re currently up to at brownderbies.com!
