15 sexy/silly/smart/sporkalicious and MEGA talented singers from Rutgers University, aka The OrphanSporks, are making an acappella CD!!

We, The OrphanSporks are the second of six a cappella groups at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. Founded in 1999 by Tom Mullaney, our group features approximately fifteen male and female Rutgers students who arrange and sing pop, rock, and soul melodies to audiences around campus and the greater Tri-State Area. The “Sporks” are known for energetic performance styles, powerful vocals, signature multi-colored shirts, and frequent participation in charity events. In 2007/2008 The OrphanSporks recorded a studio album, A Little Bite of Everything. The album features covers of tracks from famous pop, rock, and hip-hop artists. According to the 2009 review of the album by RARB,“This group offers itself as a comedy group that sings well, or at the very least a singing group that recognizes the inherent ridiculous side of the a cappella art form.”

This year, we want to produce a new CD since it has been four years since the last one was made. The CD would promote the hard work and talents that we have been achieving over the past four years. Making this CD will hopefully influence the art of a cappella music and express our love and dedication to our group. As much as we have raised and are continuing to raise, we are all full-time college students, whose studies and extra-curricular activites are very important. As an OrphanSpork, each one of us dedicates 5 hours of time for rehearsal, plus performing at various gigs throughout each week, and preparing for 2 concerts a semester. We want to make the best CD possible that completely represents us as a group, and with your support, that can happen!
