  1. Boston Representing!2011/04/18
    Wow. This was an amazing weekend for the Boston A Cappella Scene. For me it started with the Five O’Clock Shadow 20th anniversary reunion. 20 years is a long time in this community. A really long time. Rockapella existed, but hadn’t yet started their sting with Carmen Sandiego. The House Jacks would be formed a […]
  2. Acapodcast #65: Seven minutes to say goodbye.2010/12/31
    65 isn't a hugely significant number. Its a common speed limit on highways. And it's the nominal age of retirement. Neither has terribly much to do with a cappella. But they are both indicative of limits, changes, and endings
  3. Acapodcast #642010/06/28
    No bones, I’m a big fan of the music from the late 80’s and early 90’s. It’s when I started making my own music collection, and when I started listening to a cappella music extensively… so for show #64 it seemed the perfect time to do an 80’s focus. Specifically on 1988. Get it? 64=8*8? […]
  4. Acapodcast #63, Beatles Collection2010/05/22
    Who doesn’t love The Beatles? One of the most loved, respected, and covered artists of all time, they helped define a new movement in music, and even today there are fans, critics, and imitators. I’ve pulled together ten of the best A Cappella covers of Beatles songs for this episode. If you like it, let […]
  5. Play Ball!2010/05/15
    One of the best things an a cappella group can do is to sing the national anthem at a ball game. I don’t care what group you are, what country you are singing for, or what kind of game it is at. You could be a high school group at your cousins jai-lai game in […]
  6. Congrats to the 2010 ICCA winners!2010/04/25
    Mouth Off already spilled the beans on their Twitter feed, but here’s a brief rundown of the results of tonight’s ICCA showdown: 3rd place: UGA Accidentals 2nd place: Berklee Pitch Slapped 1st place: SoCal VoCals In addition, the VoCals won best choreography (well deserved!), and best solo went to a gentleman from UGA, and best […]
  7. Like the old college days…2010/04/24
    I’m writing this from the megabus to NYC. I’m riding down today to catch the ICCA finals at the Alice Tully Hall. If you see me there, come up and say hi! After the show, I’ll be catching the 1:30am megabus back to Boston because I’m stage managing a show that goes up tomorrow night… […]

  9. SpringSing 2010 – Voices United For A Cause2010/03/02
    I’d like to tell everyone about a very special a cappella festival coming up. It’s called SpringSing, and it’s a weekend full of classes, workshops, concerts, and opportunities to meet some fabulous people. And even better, it’s all done in the name of charity. The Team Burns Charity Foundation organizes the whole event and the […]

    Wow, 2010 already! Well, 2009 was a banner year for a cappella, with so many incredible albums, so much positive media attention, and it seemed like every time I turned around, somebody was stepping it up to the next level. I’m going to tell you right now that 2010 is promising more of that. I […]
  13. I love the Aca Community2010/01/08
    The A Cappella comunity is one of the best communities I can think of. Our shared passion brings people from around the globe into near instant friendships. Yesterday, it was announced that Boston vocal rock band Ball In The House would be cancelling Saturday’s scheduled show (two days later) because of a sudden and sad […]

    Sorry for the unannounced summer break. Believe it or not, I’ve had a show mostly cooked and ready to record since the end of July,but it is crunch time at work, and on top of that I’m moving to a new town. (Wifey got a job, yay!) Seems I spend too much time apologizing for […]
  21. Spidey Sense is tingling…2009/07/30
    So while reading Ars Technica this morning I came across this article letting me know that Podcasting has now been patented. Until VoloMedia comes knocking on my door it won’t be dampening my efforts in any way, but, man-oh-man, I hope this one gets torpedoed quickly. Nothing could kill off the vibrant podcast world faster.
  22. Mouth Off review “…Sings Without Music, Vol. 2”2009/07/29
