Strike A Chord is a co-ed a cappella group with a varied repertoire. They perform show tunes, doo-wop, pop music, funk, and gospel, with some comedy in-between tunes. They have a set list for both older crowds (retirement homes, nursing facilities) and the general adult public (festivals, fairs). Some of their repertoire includes tunes by Sting, Stevie Wonder, Journey, The Nylons, The Beatles, Boyz 2 Men, George Michael, Peter Gabriel and many more. The group usually performs with 6-8 people, and has a positive and upbeat energy that audiences love.
Strike A Chord recently performed at an event in Brookline, MA where the local merchants opened late and offered hot chocolate and snacks to the shoppers. Strike A Chord was the entertainment at a local bank branch, and they were a huge success. So many people came to listen to them that the branch ran out of snacks. Adults and children enjoyed their performance.
Loved the show in Northampton on New Year's Eve.
Great selections, great sound, and a great performance filled with lots of talent and good fun.
Come back next year!!
Response from Strike A Chord:
Thanks! We had a GREAT time, and hope to come back next year!
I've had the privilege of attending 2 of the SaC group's performances. They are delightful as a group and individuals. Their music is a wonderful blend ..truly something for everyone. I am recommending them to our Activities Director at the nursing home where I am employed. I can just see the residents taking it all in and toe tapping!! Can't wait to see them again!
This energetic and enthusiastic group combines a nice blend of voices with a popular selection of music. Everyone enjoyed their a cappella singing set as well as their familiar Disney tunes set. Everything was professionally handled, they came with their own equipment, they sang music appropriate for our church setting and the whole experience was upbeat. We want them back again!
Price Range: $350-$2500
Gig Length: 10 - 120 minutes
Strike A Chord has been performing for over ten years. We started as a Disney tour, performing all over the East Coast of the US, Canada, and in Europe. We did a cappella music for fun on the side. Later, we started just adding a cappella repertoire, performing for smaller events and fund-raisers, and realized that we've got something. Now we are booking more extensively, performing for larger audiences, and having a blast bringing our eclectic mix of musical genres to people all over the eastern part of the US. We are open to singing most everywhere, and have sung fundraisers, Walk for Life events, assisted living and nursing facilities, VA homes, wedding cocktail hours, schools, street festivals...
We have our own sound equipment, but prefer to sing without amplification if possible.
