"Some say the best musical instrument of all is the human voice - if you've seen Rockapella you know that's the truth," says USA TODAY. This five-man powerhouse of vocal talent sweeps through sold-out venues across the country year-round. With an ever-expanding fan base, they're known as the Kings of Contemporary A Cappella. Individually, Rockapella is: Scott Leonard (high tenor), Kevin Wright (tenor), Jeff Thacher (vocal percussionist), George Baldi (bass) and Calvin Jones (tenor). The group was formed for the sheer love of performing; singing on New York City street corners with a hat out at their feet. They caught the eye of a producer putting together a television special titled "Spike & Co.: Do It A Cappella", hosted by filmmaker Spike Lee. This in turn led to a daily appearance on "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?", a wildly popular kid's game show on public television. Television & radio commercials and international recording contracts followed. Rockapella has released 20 albums over the last 20 years, with their most recent titled, "A Rockapella Holiday."
Rockapella's holiday show is one not to miss. With their completely original take on the holidays and adding their smooth edge to the season's warm heart, Rockapella will criss-cross the country spreading the joy of the holiday season through their music. From very unexpected takes on classic favorites to brand new originals destined to be classics, audiences can expect to be tickled and touched by a holiday performance like no other.
