One of the most unique live entertainment groups joining us this summer is Cut Off A Cappella. They are an a cappella group, which means they don’t use any instruments in their pieces, only their voices. We decided to learn a little more about this group before the festival and get a glimpse of what their group is all about!
Cut Off A Cappella was christened 5 years ago, when most of the founding members had graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College. After graduating, these vocalists felt “cut off” from singing because they were no longer part of their college’s a cappella group, so they named their group to represent that. They perform a wide selection of music, from the 70’s to today, covering multiple genres. Members of the group turn on the radio and find a way to perform songs with only the human voice. “Boondocks” by Little Big Town and “Open Arms” by Journey are two of their most popular performances, so make a point of catching them on stage!
Since the start of the group, it has had anywhere from 6 to 13 people at a time, with over 30 different contributors. The group currently has 8 members, which means there are 8 different influences on the music. The group is always looking for songs that have special meaning to the group that will also be enjoyable for the audiences. They also seek inspiration from other a cappella groups such as Pentatonix, Natrurally 7, and The Exchange. Cut Off A Cappella wants everyone to be excited to see the only completely vocal group perform and see what the human voice can do!
You can catch Cut Off A Cappella on the Boylan Code Stage on Sunday, July 19 from 12 to 1:15 PM! Don’t miss the opportunity to see how they make music by using just their voices!
