Mixed Contemporary A Cappella Groups

We've said it before, we'll say it again - mixed groups have all the advantages, and really are the best of both worlds. They can have a sound that hits the stratosphere and the basement all at once, and their blend conveys that little tingle to the listener that a single-gender group just can't give. If you like the contemporary sound, and enjoy either male or female groups, we dare you to give our mixed groups a listen - you'll find something (or quite a few somethings) to write home about, we promise!

Apes & Babes

Apes & Babes was formed in 1999 when eight singers with a background in Trondheim studentkor would spend the summer holidays to explore a different type of harmony than the traditional choir. We wanted to find out if it was possible to pop singing without instruments and still sound like a band - not a choir. Within a few weeks was 5-6 songs rehearsed, and the 3 August we held a concert at the TIRC Student Society in Trondheim. But that would only be a small summer project, took off from the first note! An enthusiastic audience demanded more. We thought it was fun, and would like to have a couple of concerts. After 2-3 attempts to keep the Closing, we understood that Apes & Babes had come to be ...

Backbeats

When they first stepped before the camera on Season 2 of "The Sing-Off,"opened their mouths and unleashed their jubilant harmonies, that was not only their network debut - it was the first time these gifted young men and women had ever sung together in public, anywhere.

And by the time they'd seized third place at season's end, they had ignited a blaze whose light had drawn thousands of fans not only to their unique sound but also to the contemporary a cappella phenomenon as a whole. No one in the Backbeats had any idea where their path would lead when they resolved to compete in the popular NBC series. But once it was over, they knew that they were riding a wave that would take them places none had imagined reaching before. That wave crests with the release of their self-titled, first album on the aptly named Arrival Records/Madison Gate imprint. Drawn together by their televised adventure, knowing that something bigger than their considerable individual gifts was leading them now, they hit the studio with a unified vision and a determination to spread the joy they draw from music to listeners everywhere.

Bobs

They rehearsed for six months. Gunnar remembers that their first gig was at an open mike in a Cuban restaurant where they were shuffled ahead of the line waiting flamingo guitarists by a manager aware of the patron's acute flamenco ennui. They sang "Psycho Killer", "A White Sportcoat" and a few others that night. The audience loved them.

At first all the arranging that Gunnar and Richard did was cover tunes. As they began writing their own songs, the need for another voice became an imperative. Auditions found Janie 'Bob' Scott. Lots of local appearances caused the stage show to gel. A record contract with a local record company, Kaleidoscope Records, produced the first album, The Bobs. A Grammy nomination for their arrangement of "Helter Skelter," a nation wide tour, and soon they were on radio, then TV, eventually traveling to Europe doing huge festivals and concerts.

Chromatics

People often ask us how the Chromatics got started. It's a complicated story, but here's a brief summary:

Back in 1993, a group called the OK Chorale was formed at NASA'S Goddard Space Flight Center by Anne Raugh and Steve Leete. The OK Chorale was 12 members strong and sang mostly doo-wop tunes, standards, and classics from Sesame Street. None of the current Chromatics were in the group at its inception, but Padi Boyd and Karen Smale joined in 1993, followed by Alan Smale and Deb Nixon in 1994.

After numerous further changes in personnel, including the departure of co-founder Anne Raugh, the group decided to refocus and reinvent itself as The Chromatics. The Chromatics were incorporated in 1995, and have been performing continuously under that name ever since.

Deep Dish A Cappella

We were founded in the spring of 2009! Margot and Lauren, two Wake Forest alums, happened to have a good number of friends who had sung with various groups in the past, so Deep Dish was really born out of their friend group--4 girls and 2 boys. Margot and Lauren roped in a large contingent of boys--3 more members--who went to Grinnell (including Alex!) within the first few months through our friend/member Supat, and Deep Dish was all of a sudden a legit group.

The founding duo of Dan Campagna and John Baptista recruited former Testostertones Dave Carr and Nathan Pierce to join forces and find other interested singers who shared the same passion for a cappella music. Be it through word or mouth, internet advertisements and craigslist posts - Fermata Town was able to quickly establish itself as one of Boston's freshest co-ed a cappella groups to hit the streets.

Fork

Bands are often formed in a bar after a few drinks. They then perform their own versions of popular songs. Fork's tale had a slightly different start. But Fork is in no way an ordinary band - neither as a rock group nor as an a cappella group. Fork's basic idea is to do things the unconventional way; so the band does rock and pop songs a cappella. When it comes to a cappella Fork has always had a few trump cards of their own up their sleeve. As band so elegantly puts it: Fork does to a cappella what Jimi Hendrix did to guitar music and what Viagra does to a man! This has been the case ever since the three actors and one police man were having a cup of tea in the kitchen of an apartment in Helsinki back in 1996 and decided to start a band. There was just one problem: it was impossible to form a rock band with the instruments the four could play - the piano, the violin, the recorder and the bass. But then it dawned on them; they all could sing!
