One Of The World’s Most Sophisticated, Lasting, And Imitated Acapella Groups Around!
Known for their national television fame on PBS’s “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?”, they’ve toured the globe and provided a funky powerful soundtrack to several generations of vocal music fans, while keeping it all fresh along the way. With buckets of catchy original pop songs, and complete contemporary revisions of sparkling Motown, pop, and soul classics, this group has always been the one to watch.
Now they’re better than ever! As one of the progenitors of the astonishing full-band sound of “contemporary” a cappella, Rockapella has shown every audience the raw power of pure vocal talent and originality. No instruments, no tracks, no mirrors…but never lame. “We make it rock and make it interesting,” explains Scott Leonard, the group’s chief songwriter, arranger and an architect of their ever-evolving and imitated dynamic sound. USA Today summed up the lasting appeal like this: “The best musical instrument of all is the human voice – if you’ve seen Rockapella you know that’s the truth.” And Rockapella has indeed proven that forming original pop & soul magic onstage is what sets them apart.
