The Downbeats not only aim to create and perform music, but also to encourage each other to grow as musicians and individuals, each learning that our own contributions are what form the uniqueness and style of the group as a whole. Through this process, we create invaluable bonds with each other and with the music that we create, all while having an aggressively fun time. Whether wrapped up in onesies for our fall show or performing in our formal black and blues, we understand that commitment to the group does not have to sacrifice the pleasure of singing and the love for each other.

Perhaps a term for a discordant raucous wasn’t the best name for a group trying to build harmonies. The group eventually departed from an exclusively jazz repertoire and began incorporating modern rock and pop songs into their sets. Along with changing their musical style, they decided to change their name. In 2000, After Hours became the University of...
