What’s a Spizzwink(?)

Hi there!

We’re the Yale Spizzwinks(?)

We’re America’s oldest underclassman a cappella group!

Since 1914 we’ve entertained audiences around the world with our signature tongue-in-cheek humor. 

What are you up to(?)

After a several years of pandemic, the ‘Winks of 2022 are proud to return to Yale with a brand new album!

This year, we’ll be producing another ‘Wink album, plus tours planned to Chile, Peru, New Zealand and Australia.

For bookings, please contact Liam Richardson, Business Manager.

Who’s a Spizzwink(?)

The Spizzwinks of Yale University, Inc. are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised entirely of Yale undergraduates. 

Although we all major in different subjects, come from different places, the two things all ‘Winks share are a love for music and a love for each other.

Check out one of the videos we made during COVID-19!

Live performances may have taken a back seat during COVID-19, but that’s only given us more time to develop several brand new additions to our repertoire!

Many of these new arrangements will debut on our upcoming EP, “Mind the Gap”. Keep an eye out for sneak peeks (or listens?) in the next few days 😉

So we made something and we’re pretty excited. It’s not quite here yet, but here’s a hint:

What do Frank Ocean, Norah Jones, and Train all have in common?

It’s been a minute since our last rush, but we can’t wait to be back on campus to welcome our newest class of ‘Winks!

*standing independently on two legs is really more of a second year skill
