Groovebarbers a capella holiday concert

PUTNEY — Next Stage Arts Project presents international a capella sensation The Groovebarbers, with special guests, the Putney Central School Chorus, in the fourth annual holiday concert, on Dec. 15, at 7:30 p.m.

The Groovebarbers annual show has become a staple of the holiday season in Putney, and returns by popular demand. Bring the family for an evening of harmony and song that will have your spirit soaring.

Join international a capella sensation, The Groovebarbers, whose mellifluous vocal blend, close harmonies and warm arrangements of holiday classics from the secular to the sublime will warm your heart.

This is show is so family friendly that children 6 and under are free when accompanied by an adult (limit of one free kid per adult ticket). There will be popcorn and other refreshments in the lobby.

The Village Voice calls The GrooveBarbers "a capella rock and soul royalty." 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 members of the pioneering modern a cappella group Rockapella of "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" TV fame, and Kevin Weist is a renowned bald vocal guru. Collectively they have established themselves as the go-to vocal group for rock, doo-wop, jazz, barbershop and — with the help of guest soprano Inna Dukach — a new hybrid genre they call "doowopera."
