4 The Record - A Great Lakes Vocal Band
NO INSTRUMENTS, NO GIMMICKS...JUST THE HUMAN VOICE!

Formed in spring 2009, 4 The Record is a six member contemporary a cappella group that brings to life radio hits from the 1970's, 80's, 90's and today. The group is influenced by the diverse performance and music education background of its members, as well as being based at the cross-roads of American music, from the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame on Lake Erie's northern shore to the country and bluegrass influences of the Ohio River valley in the south. The group performs songs you know and love with unique vocal imitations of instrumental parts.

Review by Kevin A.

This group put on an absolutely stunning performance as a part of the SingStrong Acappella conference at South Lakes HS in Reston, VA. A great mix of old and new songs with an amazing stage presence. You will try to figure out where all the instruments are or the drum machine but it is all done with just their voices. 4 The Record would be great for all audiences, I suggest hiring them while they are still a new group before they become famous and start being able to charge the big bucks!

Review by Tina S.

I inherited the season from a retiring Executive Director so 4 The Record, like the other artists in the 2009-10 Marion Palace Theatre line-up, was not my choice. I thought they would be fine but they were fantastic. Their singing and "mouth sounds" were spot on plus they were all really nice. I can now proudly say that if you are looking for an a cappella act, 4 The Record WOULD be among my choices.

Overview

The audience will experience unique a cappella arrangements of radio hits from the past 4 decades. The music is full of tight harmonies and backing vocals that imulate instrumental sounds from drums, guitar, piano, brass, and more.

Only one instrument is used in the group, and that is the world's most versatile and complex...the human voice.

The group covers songs by groups/performers such as Journey, Adele, Ike & Tina Turner, Wham, Phil Collins, Uncle Cracker, Johnny Nash, Sugarland, Katy Perry, The Manhattan Transfer, The Eurythmics, Usher, Little Big Town, and much more! The biggest concentration of music is from the modern pop/rock era, 1972-today.

Additional Booking Notes

Access to ample electrical supply and a minimum space/stage area of 24' wide by 6'-10' deep. Please allow 1 hour prior to opening the doors to the performance for equipment set-up and sound check.
