In 1977, when the pop charts read like a who's who of mullets and bellbottoms, founders Leslie Lipton and Shelley Lotter had a vision of a new kind of group: one that would travel back in time and pay homage to the great pioneers—Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday, to name a few. They invited a select group of singers, including several former Whiffenpoofs, to join in their dream. The group they founded sang jazz like it was 1917, and Cole Porter had just graduated from Yale. They were Redhot & Blue.

Forty years later, we are still Redhot & Blue: our distinct arrangements and award-winning sound have grown a great deal since our founding and continue to set us apart in the music scene at Yale and across the globe. We love singing jazz, but our repertoire has expanded to include a wide variety of genres, from Broadway hits to the Beatles to Britney Spears. Through the dedication of our members, past and present, we've come together to chase the bounds of musical possibility, while always looking back to the greats who inspired the conception of Redhot & Blue.
