Description

A Cappella Spectacular is the premier event of the Barbershop Harmony Festival.

The Spectacular features the 2019 international gold medallist quartet Signature, supported by the best of Australian quartets and choruses.

Signature, with smoky R&B songs and a passionate, crowd-pleasing delivery, was propelled to the pinnacle of a cappella singing at the international contest in July in Salt Lake City.

In Hobart the quartet will sing a range of songs including the Ike & Tina Turner classic “Proud Mary,” Aretha Franklin’s “Think” and a heart-wrenching rendition of “Dance with My Father” by Luther Vandross. Songs in their repertoire include the Irving Berlin classic “What’ll I Do”, and the Queen hit “Somebody to Love”. They also perform the Sam Cooke cover, “A Change is Gonna Come”. Other songs include “Sweet Caroline”, “The Duke of Earl”, “I Have Nothing”, and “Blame It On The Boogie”.

At the international contest, Signature won gold contesting with the top 40 quartets from around the world. Signature achieved a remarkable 94.8% in contest. They are noted for giving audiences the gift of emotion and love in their performance.

A Cappella Spectacular will be hosted by the 2018 Australian gold medallist quartet Blindside, from the Gold Coast. This youthful quartet of four 24-year-olds epitomise contemporary barbershop. Their lead singer Michael Webber said, “Barbershop is very contemporary. It has moved well away from the image of boaters, candy striped vests and moustaches and singing about my 'Ragtime Gal'. Barbershop’s versatility is boundless. From ballads to uptunes, to comedy, you hear nearly every style of music”.

The Electric Barbercats quartet from Perth WA is also on the show. They have recently returned from a successful US tour. They perform comedic songs, as well as classics such as “You’re Nobody till Somebody Loves You”, and “Since You’ve Been Gone”. Also on stage will be Vocal Evolution chorus, consistent Australian gold medallist over a number of years. The Baden Street youth mixed chorus from the West will also perform. They will entertain with songs such “Let's Do It, Let's Fall In Love”, and “Follow My Love”.

The evening will be an a cappella spectacular. Tickets are available from Eventbrite, and at wwwbarbershopharmonyfestival.com.au. Prices are $55 adult, $45 senior/concession, youth $15.
