The hairstyles and facial hair on these students suggest the 1970s, the white dinner jackets indicate they could be Tigertones (see the a cappella group’s signature look at, but the song they’re performing is anyone’s guess! Organized in 1946, the Tigertones are Princeton’s second-oldest all-male singing group, following the Nassoons, who were founded in 1941. There are currently 16 a cappella groups — male, female, and co-ed — listed as active student organizations on the University’s Web site. Can any PAW readers identify the vocalists pictured here?

Wow. The 1970s? Based on one goatee? Those are the Tigertones from the mid-1990s. Given the mistletoe and the attempt to look like reindeer, this is probably the "holiday arch sing" in December 1995. The Tones are, from bottom to top, David Grossman '98, Brian Goehring '98, and Landon Jones '97. The person furthest back looks like David Wycoff '96, and the fourth back could be either Geoff Getnick '96 or the late Rick Modica '99. The person on the left side of the frame is probably Jon Hlafter '97. The song looks to be "Little Saint Nick" by the Beach Boys.
