Aftershock A Capella Group Review & Giveaway

Tonight Gabriel and Mom had date night. We went to an a capella group invitational held at our local high school. It was free admission, and Momma D being a “gleek”, I could not say no.

It was nice one on one time with one of my little guys. Not only that, it was great, clean entertainment for free! We were happy to support our fledgling a capella group in it’s second year from our high school.

I am happy to say that we were more than pleasantly surprised. Our choral director in only his third year teaching put together a great set of performers. Another local high school group performed, as well as our own. Then there was another high school group finishing a week long tour that hailed from Long Island. The college level was represented by a great group from SUNY New Paltz called Absolut A Cappella. Everyone one did a great job, and I felt the performances matured and grew as the evening went on.

The big surprise of the night came from a professional a capella group that hails from the Albany area called Aftershock. They came out and did a performance. Gabriel so astutely said they were like rock stars without instruments. Phenomenal is an understatement!

They were wonderful, entertaining and enjoyable to watch. The auditorium went wild! My son was rockin out and waving his hands in the air. They did a phenomenal job of engaging the audience, and the sheer musicianship of this group was astounding. I absolutely could not believe that we were at a free community event!

At the end of their set,and subsequently the completion of the evening, they mentioned that they were looking for fans- specifically facebook fans. As this blog gets quite a few hits a day, and we have thousands of followers through facebook, google connect and twitter I offered to do a little write up!

They so generously donated two cd’s to give away!

So here is a youtube video of one of their performances this spring for you to check out…
