About Booking A Cappella Groups
Hiring an a cappella singing group to perform at your event or venue can be a terrific entertainment choice. Contemporary a cappella groups are vocal musical bands who do not rely on musical instruments but instead "play" using their voices alone. A cappella music also includes Barbershop and Doo Wop music. Many a cappella acts also add "vocal percussion" or "beatboxers" to mimic the sound of instrumentation. A cappella music was popularized by groups like Rockapella, Straight No Chaser, and by performers like Bobby McFerrin. There also is a strong a cappella presence within the live Christian music community, as in churches and festivals.
Some things to consider when hiring an a cappella singing group are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to get references. Talk to people in the area about the group and get feedback. Finally, talk about all of the specifics of the event. For example, figure out if the group will need certain audio equipment and how much room they'll need to perform - because they might need extra room to bust out some sweet dance moves. Also, if you have a certain song you want performed, some groups will compose a special arrangement just for your event. Now all you have to do is make sure your guests are ready for a darn good time at your upcoming event!
