We’re proud to announce The Backbeats from Season 2 of NBC’s The Sing-Off as one of our guest groups for the 2011 Los Angeles A Cappella Festival!
Comprised mostly of a cappella singers from USC and UCLA, this group of twenty-something’s incorporates their disparate styles and tastes into one synthesized sound fused together by their love of Pop, R&B and Soul.
The Backbeats truly represents a hodgepodge of west coast collegiate singers from different groups and universities:
- Awaken, UCLA
- Noteworthy, BYU
- SoCal VoCals, USC
- The Trojan Men, USC
You’ll be blown away by their beautiful and powerful singing combined with lush and creative arrangements. The group is sure to bring the noise come January! This will be one of your first opportunities to see them live since the December airing of The Sing-Off. You won’t want to miss it.
You can watch The Backbeats as they perform on NBC’s upcoming a cappella singing competition series, “The Sing-Off,” a five-night holiday event premiering Monday, December 6 (8-10 p.m. ET). The one-of-a-kind battle of voices will continue on December 8, 13 and 15, culminating in a live finale on December 20 (8-10 p.m. ET each night).
The Los Angeles A Cappella Festival is a day-long event held on the beautiful campus of the University of California, Los Angeles featuring workshops, masterclasses and demonstrations taught by the a cappella community’s best and brightest. A full day of learning, sharing and socializing is capped by a high-energy & talent-packed evening performance by several high profile vocal groups. The event is produced by the Contemporary A Cappella Society (CASA) in conjunction with UCLA’s own Bruin Harmony. Learn more at www.la-af.com.
