Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center presents Rockapella at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8 in the Hoke Theatre as part of the Performing Artists Series.
Since the early ’90s when they first achieved national television fame on PBS’s “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?” Rockapella has toured the globe and provided a funky powerful soundtrack to several generations of vocal music fans, while keeping it all fresh along the way. With buckets of catchy original pop songs, and complete contemporary revisions of sparkling Motown, pop, and soul classics, this group has always been the one to watch. As one of the progenitors of the astonishing full-band sound of “contemporary” a cappella, Rockapella has shown every audience the raw power of pure vocal talent and originality. The current Rockapella line-up features Scott Leonard (since 1991, high tenor), Jeff Thacher (1993, vocal percussionist), Calvin Jones (2013, tenor), Mitchell Rains (2016, tenor) and Bryant Vance (2016, bass).
