The Blue Ribbon Glee Club performs punk rock classics, a cappella-style. Featuring 30+ members and a chorus of voices signing guitar riffs and bass lines, with no instrumentation save for a drum to keep time, they present punk classics in way you’ve never heard before. The overall effect is like that of having a group of carolers show up at your doorstep singing songs you actually enjoy.
