BLACKOUT: NYC A Cappella
Since entering the a cappella scene in June 2012, BLACKOUT has grown into a group that is larger than the sum of its parts. The group has have had the honor and privilege of performing for organizations such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the Super Bowl Host Committee; they've joined fellow members of the a cappella community on stages across the city and their studio recordings have been selected for professional a cappella compilation albums. BLACKOUT has performed at a variety of venues throughout New York City including The Highline Ballroom, The Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery and Rockwood Music Hall. BLACKOUT has been featured in a number of publications such as BuzzFeed, were recently named one of the best groups in New York City by CBS News, and even performed on NBC's The Today Show in 2017.
Fermata Town is a Boston-based mixed vocal band and a proud member of the Contemporary A Cappella League. The Townies pride themselves on their original, in-house arrangements and unique sound that melds pop and jazz. Covering musical artists as varied and complex as Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Jazmine Sullivan and more, Fermata Town infuses their repertoire with unexpected yet distinctive musical elements. A bit of Latin flair added to the latest Kelly Clarkson song; a trio of trumpets in a rollicking rock ballad by The Black Keys; a reimagined version of a beloved Beatles classic that captures the lyrical essence in a new way.
It's Fermata Town's signature style. It's contemporary a cappella - with a twist.
