About Booking Singing Groups
Hiring a singing group to perform at your event or venue can be a terrific entertainment choice. Contemporary singing groups are vocal musical bands who do not rely on musical instruments but instead "play" using their voices. A cappella music also includes Barbershop and Doo Wop music. Many vocal acts also add "vocal percussion" or "beatboxers" to mimic the sound of instrumentation. (one such group is performing this type of a capella music is Rockapella, and Bobby McFerrin is an a capella soloist) There also remains a strong a cappella presence within the live Christian music community, as seen in church events and festivals.
There are a few things you should do when hiring a Singing Group. First, always listen to audio and watch video samples. This will ensure that you book the best for your special event. Next, be sure to get a contract. Make sure to read this carefully and watch for specifications made by the group. Last, as with any other purchase you would make, read reviews and get references. Talk to people in the area and previous clients about the performers and get feedback.
