The Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival is the premier American showcase for vocal harmony music. The annual national competition draws from hundreds of vocal groups from around the country with regional competitions in eight cities. The winning group from each festival is flown to perform in front of celebrity judges and a sold out house of enthusiastic a cappella fans at the National Finals.

1996 Rocky Mountain Champions

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.

Interested in Performing?

We are always seeking groups who would like to participate in our events.

Groups of any style are welcome, but you must have between 3 and 12 members. We have a rule book which explains many of the details of the event, which you can see by clicking here. All groups must audition in order to compete. Generally this is done by sending a current tape and photo, although live auditions are sometimes arranged. The purpose of the audition is to make sure the group is appropriate for the Festival and to help the Director determine the performance order. If a group has competed previously, the audition process may be waived.

How to enter

Please send music and photos to the regional director :
