Rockapella
The best musical instrument of all is the human voice  if youve seen Rockapella you know thats the truth.  USA Today

Rockapella has become one of the worlds most sophisticated, lasting, and imitated vocal groups around today. Youd be hard-pressed to find a more influential group out there in this new era of network television a cappella shows like NBCs The Sing-Off, movies like Pitch Perfect, and innumerable college vocal groups that own the corner of cool on campuses everywhere.

Since the early 1990s when they first achieved national television fame on PBSs Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, Rockapella has toured the globe and provided a funky powerful soundtrack to several generations of vocal music fans, while keeping it all fresh along the way. With a long list of catchy original pop songs, and contemporary revisions of Motown, pop, and soul classics, this group has always been the one to watch.  Often imitated  never duplicated applies here.

As one of the progenitors of the astonishing full-band sound of contemporary a cappella, Rockapella shows its audience the raw power of pure vocal talent and originality. Theres nothing between us and the audience  its very human music  with nothing missing, says Rockapellas human beatbox, Jeff Thacher. No instruments, no tracks, no mirrorsbut never lame.  We make it rock and make it interesting, explains Scott Leonard, the groups chief songwriter, arranger and an architect of their ever-evolving and dynamic sound.

The band has changed over the years. The current Rockapella line-up features Scott Leonard (High Tenor), Jeff Thacher (Vocal Percussionist), Steven Dorian (Tenor), Calvin Jones (Tenor), and Ryan Chappelle (Bass). This line-up marks a new generation of Rockapella, who remain keenly focused on musical excellence. People have a hard time believing its just us making all of that music. Its still those same elements that make modern band music: percussion, bass, melody and harmonies, says Scott. Our success is in the art of it  its not what you do, but how you do it! adds Jeff.

And Rockapella has indeed proven that forming original pop & soul magic onstage is what sets them apart.
