Remember the Astelin Nasal Spray commercial with the a'cappella singers? Well, that was the GrooveBarbers and they will be at the house, singing in perfect four-part harmony along with lots of silliness between the songs!
Check out their Fabulous Promo Video
Sean Altman is considered "the father of the modern a'cappella". For eleven years, he was a lead singer, arranger and composer for the pioneering group Rockapella, with whom he released nine CDs and starred in the five-year PBS-TV series Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? Sean composed the ubiquitous "Carmen Sandiego" theme song, which continues to get international airplay.
Check out the video clip from Sean's
previous appearance at Coffee With Conscience!
The GrooveBarbers are "A'capella rock and soul royalty" (Village Voice).
An a'cappella supergroup? Sounds paradoxical, absurd, perhaps even dangerous; indeed, The GrooveBarbers is all these things. Each member of this all-vocal powerhouse quartet is a bona fide star in his own right: Sean Altman, Charlie Evett and Steve Keyes are former founding members of the pioneering group Rockapella, and Westfield native Kevin Weist is a renowned bald vocal guru and acclaimed TV writer. Collectively they have established themselves as the "go to" vocal group for rock, doo-wop, jazz and even (no way!) barbershop!
As mentioned above, the GrooveBarbers were featured in not one but two national TV commercials as The Astelins, the deliriously suave vocal group that offers Astelin nasal spray to seasonal allergy sufferers. Watch the commercial HERE! Now they will cure *your* suffering with their family-friendly harmonizing and offbeat performance!
This show is Family Friendly.
