The Rockapella formula: all of the elements of modern pop and rock music (bass, melody, harmonies, and percussion) performed using only vocals and limbs. In other words, a capella meets rock.
That sounds familiar: because you can hear their influence in shows such as The Sing Off, movies such as Pitch Perfect, and in vocal gang rumbles on college quads. However, Rockapella were among the first groups to popularize the art form.
You first met them: when they appeared on the 1990 PBS special Spike Lee & Company: Do It A Capella, but you most likely remember them as the house band and singers of the theme to Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
The Rockapella fellas: Scott Leonard (high tenor), Stephen Dorian (tenor), Ryan Chapelle (bass), Calvin Jones (tenor), and human beatbox Jeff Thatcher
What to expect live: holiday classics elevated by inventive arrangements and playful harmonies, plus a mix of original pop songs and revisions of Motown classics, all delivered with charisma and intimacy. As Jeff the Beatbox says, “There’s nothing between us and the audience—it’s very human music—with nothing missing.”
