The Ramifications are Suffolk's popular co-ed a cappella group. Formed in the spring of 2001 and composed of 12-15 students, this group quickly made a name for itself in the Suffolk community, the Boston area, and even around the Northeast. The group has a contemporary repertoire spanning everything from pop and rock to R&B and soul. The Ramifications have two albums to their credit: Voices in the Attic and If Maniacs Riot (You can buy this second CD in the Suffolk Bookstore for $12!). They're working on a brand-new CD now.
You can see the Ramifications at campus events including SpringFest, the Performing Arts Winter concert, and their annual A Cappella Festival. They also perform regularly with other a cappella groups throughout the Northeast and are available for private functions both on and off campus. Past appearances include singing the National Anthem at a Celtics game and a guest performance during a Valentine's Day segment on Fox 25 news.
