We Welcome the Very Best!

When you hear “a capella” what do you think of? Barbershop quartets? Kitschy vaudeville acts? At one time that was spot-on but these days a capella has a place in pop music alongside the biggest names in pop, hip-hop, rock and R & B.  The guys in Straight No Chaser do an amazing job reinventing some of the greatest songs in popular music from Michael Jackson, Madonna, the Bee Gees, Bon Jovi and so many more.

A Capella: It’s Hip to be Square

For anyone who is new to the genre, a capella is singing without instrumental backup. It started out as religious music. The phrase a capella means “in the manner of the church.”

That original group was very different from the Harvard Callbacks and Tufts University Beelzebubs everyone knows today.
