The T-Tones started originally as an octet that extended out from the College’s Glee Club. The group received its name after spending a large portion of time performing in the Tea House. Beginning in 1957, the T-Tones began playing at Glee Club
concerts as special guests.

The group consisted of 15 students until they became completely independent of the Glee Club and admission was reduced to 11. The group was also noted for writing and recording an album of their own work in New York City in November 1967. For more Rosemont College history, check out the archives.
