Six Appeal concert Nov. 5 at Scherr-Howe
Is Six Appeal a comedy group, a vocal ensemble, or a rock band? Audiences have been trying to answer that question for years. People in the Mobridge area will get a chance to make up their own minds on Nov. 5 when the group performs at Scherr-Howe Event Center.
Six Appeal is a world-class vocal ensemble infused with impeccable comedic timing and the energy and vitality of a rock band. Swearing off instruments, Six Appeal uses a cappella singing to span decades of classic oldies, current chart toppers, and catchy original tunes. Featuring vocal dexterity and adventurous song selection, the 2012 National Harmony Sweepstakes Champions explore all genres with a far-reaching repertoire that will surprise and captivate any audience regardless of age or the setting.
Two members, Jordan Roll and Reuben Hushagen, grew up in Bismarck, N.D. They recall the murals of Scherr-Howe from when they competed in middle school wrestling tournaments and are excited to perform here this fall, according to a news release.
Offering a very dynamic range of musical styles, Six Appeal is not tied to genre. The guys will keep you guessing as they effortlessly move between pop, rock, jazz, hip hop, and the timeless classics that have made a cappella what it is today. This positions the group to be a perfect fit for college shows, corporate events, clubs, restaurants, summer fairs, music festivals, public schools, and countless other events – the guys can adapt to almost any situation.
Despite their cheeky group name, the antics of these six young gentlemen provide a good-natured atmosphere for their electrifying performance. A Six Appeal show will split your sides, feed your musical sweet tooth, and leave you wondering how in the world they pulled it off just with voices. In the spring of 2012 Six Appeal achieved the title of National Champion at the National Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival in San Rafael, Calif. In addition to their firtst-place win, they also won the award for Best Original Song as well as the coveted Audience Favorite award.
With members formally instructed in singing, music education, composition, and over 70 combined years of musical training and experience, Six Appeal brings a diverse arsenal of style and entertainment to the stage. In addition to performance, Six Appeal has a passion for spreading their knowledge of a cappella music to every audience, and an essential aspect of their mission is to empower young singers in their educational outreach program. What makes these Six stand out from the crowd? Their Appeal.
The Mobridge concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door, or in advance at the Mobridge Chamber of Commerce office, Merkel’s Foods and Paylessfoods.
