McPhly

McPhly - In the fall of 2008, the four members of McPhly came together to create a new sound in a cappella. After only 5 rehearsals in 3 weeks McPhly won the RMD District Championship by decisive margins. The new foursome came together with a wealth of vocal music experience and is currently taking the Denver a cappella scene by storm. All four coming from different popular groups, McPhly is quickly becoming a new standard of a cappella. Since their inception, the group’s repertoire has been ever expanding - with music ranging from jazz, pop, barbershop, country and more, they have been wildy popular with audiences. They have performed in over 20 states nationwide and continue to perform nationally and recently placed 15th at the BHS International Contest in Philadelphia, PA. Get ready for McPhly!

Members: Brian Fox, Andrew Hoag, Curtis Terry, Travis Tabares

2009

Home Free

A cappella. It's technically what we do. But we're not your bow-tie barbershop quartet. We're a vocal band. Which means we do more than sing - we perform - engaging audiences in a rich blend of harmonies while entertaining them.

Home Free has performed for a diverse and extensive clientele, ranging from the Minnesota Vikings, to Fortune 500 companies, Celebrity and Norwegian Cruise Lines, Allied Concert touring services, the Dutton Family from America's Got Talent and many, many more. It also devotes its time to educating and encouraging music in the public schools through innovative workshops and concert fundraising. To date, its programs have already raised tens of thousands of dollars for schools in Minnesota.

Members: Rob Lundquist, Jon Mclemore, Elliott Robinson, Adam Rupp, Chris Rupp

Face

Face is a nationally recognized all-vocal rock band from Boulder, Colorado, bringing a new edge and attitude to the human voice. Using just five voices and a vocal drummer, or "beat-boxer," Face creates a rock-music phenomenon that has to be seen to be believed. No other instruments or special effects - just six guys. Considered "among the top 10 singing groups in the country," (Norm Johnson, Las Vegas Leisure Guide) they regularly wow sold-out audiences throughout Colorado, including such classic venues as Boulder Theater and The Soiled Dove.

Face was recently named "Best Local Musician/Group" by Boulder Weekly's 2009 Best of Boulder Reader Survey. In addition, Face is a two-time winner of the National Audience Favorite Award at the Harmony Sweepstakes National Finals, as well as National Runner-Up in 2005 and 2007. Face was also runner-up for Favorite Pop/Rock Group in the 2007 Contemporary A Cappella Society's Community Awards. Face has been headlining in Las Vegas periodically since 2007 to rave reviews, paving the way for even more national attention.

Members: Mark Megibow, Forest Kelly, Ben Lunstad, Cody Qualls, Ryan Driver, Stephen Ross, Jayson Throckmorton

Six Guys Named Blake

Six Guys Named Blake actually consists of seven guys, but of course, there are eight guys in our photo and six of them aren‚t actually named Blake. Never mind. ŒSix Guys‚ discovered their love of a cappella music at Fairview High School via three great vocal music directors who have opened doors for many performers. A cappella has become a creative outlet for the young men of this group as well as an opportunity to "let loose" and perform with Œflare.‚ Since all but one of the seven guys are seniors, lessons learned through this vocal band adventure will be carried on elsewhere as they continue their musical quest.

Members: Blake Stepan, Trevor Babb, Jesse Thurston, D.L. Mungo, David Paxman, Daniel Cooper, Peter Driscoll

Eclipse

Eclipse is a vocal group of six creating explosive sound, driving rhythms, and lush harmonies using only one instrument: the human mouth.

They began by arranging their own vocal covers of popular songs and performing them on campus and in the Logan area. Increasing public interest and performance opportunities led to the recording of their first album, "Once," which was released in April 2001.

In Unity

In Unity has been on fire for the Lord since the formation of the group in September of 1991. Since then they have performed at various schools, churches, and youth rallies. Audiences around the world have been blessed by their music ministry. Having eight members has brought diversity to the group that sets them apart from most a capella groups. They have been able to incorporate different genres of music into their songs, ranging from gospel, to jazz, to a modern pop style. With so many people in the group, In Unity is able to reach out to people in a more personal manner after concerts and during other group functions. In Unity writes and/or arranges all of its music, giving the group a unique and original sound.

Cool Shooz

Cool Shooz took runner-up at last year's Harmony Sweepstakes. Perennial Sweepstakes fans have seen this group fine-tune their style over the years. Always striving for high energy, tightly harmonic, and raucous Rock & Roll style, these five singers hope that this is their Sweepstakes year. They have performed often over the last year, including the huge Fort Collins 4th of July Celebration, the Greeley Arts Festival, the Glenwood Springs Strawberry Festival, and any number of Corporate functions, parties, weddings, and the occasional "concert under a tent in a raging thunderstorm" that makes a cappella so much fun. So sit back, hold on to your seats, and enjoy the Rock experience that is Cool Shooz.

Neighbors

They are just what their name implies, the typical guys next door who happen to sing not all that typical A Cappella. They are the guys you'd invite over for a bar-b-que, the guys upstairs who play the stereo too loud and the guys you see on weekends fixing their cars. The group has had many names and talented members over the years and has coalesced with a powerful unique sound. Their repertoire includes many A Cappella standards, but like the group itself, "diverse" is a better description of their musical style.

Members: Kent Beaber, Jody Huddleson, Jonathan Moreno, Russel Perez
