"Every element of this sound is unique – four world-class voices and one freak of nature – combining to shred the noise's glare and free the music's simple soulful ass-kicking light," says Rockapella producer, writer, arranger Scott Leonard.
USA TODAY puts it simply, "Some say the best musical instrument of all is the human voice - if you've seen Rockapella you know that's the truth."
Gleefully, they are NOT your childhood Rockapella. Rather they’ve become one of the world’s most sophisticated and lasting pop vocal groups. With the wild success of the TV smash “Glee” and a cappella groups reigning in the Corner of Cool on college campuses, there is clearly a hunger for exciting live vocal performance. A single concert opens a window on practically the whole history of vocal music from vintage Mills Brothers through jazz and rock to current Hip Hop.
The little miracle that keeps the crowds coming back year after year and constantly draws new fans is Rockapella’s astonishing full-band sound. A sound that seems to be impossible coming from just five guys with microphones. No instruments, no tracks, no mirrors – and their hands never leave their wrists. “We’re making every bit as much music as the whole ‘Glee’ chorus – but with only five guys,” says Rockapella’s human beat-box Jeff Thacher.
