Rockapella returns to the Emelin with its latest show, Motown & More, which pays tribute to the music of Motown with unique versions of hit songs from The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, and more.
With the wild success of the TV smash “Glee” and a cappella groups reigning in the Corner of Cool on college campuses, there is clearly a hunger for exciting live vocal performance. A single concert opens a window on practically the whole history of vocal music from vintage Mills Brothers through jazz and rock to current Hip Hop.
The little miracle that keeps the crowds coming back year after year and constantly draws new fans is Rockapella’s astonishing full-band sound. A sound that seems to be impossible coming from just five guys with microphones. No instruments, no tracks, no mirrors – and their hands never leave their wrists. “We’re making every bit as much music as the whole ‘Glee’ chorus – but with only five guys,” says Rockapella’s human beat-box Jeff Thacher.
“We make it rock and make it interesting,” explains Scott Leonard, the group’s chief songwriter, arranger and architect of their evolving 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.”
