For those of you who have not seen it yet, the Ritards have new outfits! Feeling that our old outfits were a little bit mundane, we tried to spice things up at our last gig in April. Below are some nice pictures!

P.S. keep watching out for updates on new videos and concerts!
This one is a must see! That’s all we’ll say
The Ritards just performed at Save the Beat Benefit Concert. It was such an amazing experience for all of us. I’m sure none of us will forget it! Especially since the Ritards got to meet so many YouTube Stars that also performed there, such as AJ Rafael, Summer Breeze, Jenny Suk, Rollie Beats, Adrian Per, and many many many more!
And as usual, we have a couple of great videos to show, this time brought to by YouTuber ad1d7sCV who has many other great videos of other groups.
And we have a surprise for all our followers coming up soon! So keep watching for us because you do not want to miss this!
Please check out our videos on youtube. We just posted our Wild Card submission for ICHSA (International Championships of High School Acappella).
It’s me, Kevin, the Pink college Ritard. I just wanted to let you guys know we are done with ICCA this year and it was a lot of fun. Here’s a little bit of what happened:
Me and Carlin ended up in Cupertino at around 3:30AM on Friday Morning. Carlin crashed at my place. We woke up at around 11ish and got working on music. We ate lunch then met up with Alex Leu. We then worked on choreo and after dinner Peter and John showed up and we began rehearsing. We couldn’t get in contact with Jerry because his phone was having problems, but Jerry is amazingly fast at learning music so we figured he could learn it the next day when we saw it.
In the morning Alex, Peter and I headed to Patrick (from the high school Ritards)’s place and we met Carlin there. Carlin took us to Berkeley and we arrived at about 1ish. We rehearsed our music and met up with Jerry. We received a phone call saying that John would no longer be able to attend due to some personal problems. at 3pm, we started scavenging for new music to sing. By 3:30 we decided on We Intertwined (The Hush Sound) and Sweet Dreams (Eurythmics). We rehearsed until 4:20 when we had to attend a performers meeting at Wheeler the performance hall. After the meeting (around 5) we went to grab dinner and at 5:50ish we had our sound check. Everything was set up for large groups. The condensers did nothing for us. After sound check we finished dinner and continued to rehearse until our voices were shot. We rested for about 30 min and then did a final rehearsal.
We were the 4th group to perform, also closing the first act. I had so much fun, and I’m sure all the other members did too! I hope all of you who watched has as much fun as we did. At that point we weren’t competitng to win anymore, which relieved a lot of stress. We did it to have fun, and we accomplished our goal.
Thanks to everybody who came out to support us!
Your Pink College Ritard,
Oh yeah! We even found time to do a photoshoot! Here are some of the pictures:
Hey guys, you have all been extremely patient. But it’s finally here!
The Ritards have a new video up! YAYYAYAYYYAYYYAYYAYAYYAY
Don’t be the last one to see it!
This was at a benefit concert at Saratoga High School called Concert for CURE. They were raising money for curing epilepsy. if you would like to show support, contact the Ritards to see how you can make a donation and put in your part for the fundraiser!
What’s even more exciting is that the Ritards will soon have more videos coming within the next two weeks! so make sure you’re checking back often!
It’s been a long time since our last post! We have been extremely busy lately! Just wanted to update everyone on what is going on:
Just last week, we had a couple gigs celebrating Chinese New Year. Both gigs had a lot of people that showed great support! It was a lot of fun to sing for such huge crowds, something we rarely get to do.
Tomorrow, Wednesday Feb. 10, the Ritards will be singing at Saratoga High School for the Benefit Concert for CURE. It starts at 7:00 PM and the Ritards are last to show! Tickets are $5 for students $7 for adults. All proceeds go to CURE, Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for epilepsy by raising funds for research and by increasing awareness of the prevalence and devastation of this disease.
Soon, the Ritards will be putting out some videos! For those of you unaware, the Ritards have been cancelled from the ICHSA competition due to lack of competitors. However, there is still hope: a wild card audition! All we have to do is send in a video! and that means we will be making a couple videos soon and posting on youtube! so look out for them
Finally, the college Ritards are competing in their first ever ICCA competition. They will be performing at UC Berkeley on February 20. Wish them luck!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful thanksgiving filled with lots of food, family, and friends! The Ritards have a little treat for you guys!
