About Uptown Vocal
Since 1991, we've been cooking up new and exciting covers of all of your favorite jazz standards.
We began as the "Catatonics" under the leadership of David Wienir, Rachel Tepfer, and Rachen Harmon. It wasn’t until 1995 that we took on the name "Uptown Vocal," and quickly became Columbia University’s favorite (and only) jazz a cappella group.
We've performed all over! On college campuses, cruise ships and morning shows; we've played bars, the White House, and the Yankee’s 100th Anniversary Dinner. One time we even opened for Ben Folds!
The jazzy sky's the limit with these cool cats. Come fly with us!
