2000 Chicago Regional: Second Place
Pronounce it: AC Rock. It rhymes! Say it: AC Rock! AC (as in a cappella), Rock (as in rock 'n roll). You would think that this high concept name would be easy to remember and hard to forget... But you would be wrong. At the very least, it gets us listed first in programs like the one you're reading right now. AC Rock! When you hear it, you'll get it! AC Rock includes Paul Iams (tenor), JD Mathein (tenor), Chris Brown (baritone) and Mark MacLean (bass), who all love singing and traveling across this great country of ours to perform for corporate events, tradeshows, private parties, theatres, clubs, festivals and grand openings at Target.
2000 Chicago Regional: Third Place
Blue Skies, consisting of Patti Lupo, Susan Prischmann, Paul Zimmerman, and Greg Jasperse, has been performing in the Chicagoland area for 3 years. This versitile group has played the Taste of Chicago, festivals, corporate functions, Broadway nights and Oscar parties. Their love of vocal music and group singing brought them together, and during the month of December they sing with the acclaimed Christmas group, The Caroling Party. While not performing with Blue Skies, these singers work in all aspects of music...recording, arranging, teaching, theatre, bands and concert work.
