Akafellas, from Olympia, WA, have enjoyed bringing their unique style of a cappella music and comedy to Northwest audiences for almost three years now. They have sung for Vice President Al Gore, produced and performed their own two-hour (whew!) a cappella show, and, one occasion, even induced labor (we sang at a baby shower and a few hours later, momıs water broke). Note the Akafellas will not be held responsible for any children born as a result of tonightıs performance. The Akafellas are Jon, Noel, Kurt, Scott and Greg.
