I just wanted to give a shout to one extremely talented beatboxer/vocal DJ/comedian known as "Beardyman". His real name is Darren Foreman. He hails from London and has established quite the cult following. Here are some excerpts from an article about him: He was given the nick-name "Beardyman" because a name was quickly needed for a flyer for an early show, and at the time he had a beard. Though often unshaven, he does not usually sport what would be considered a full beard.
I just saw Sonos live at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center in Seattle. I haven't heard anything Sonos has recorded yet - just lots of good chatter from friends like local music blog Comfort Music, who did an extensive interview with Sonos last week before the group made the trek up north to the Pacific Northwest to perform. So nowhere in this blog will you find a comparison to their CD. featureimage:
Hello! This is my first blog ever. Like, ever, ever. Needless to say, I am quite pleased with myself for finally working up the motivation to actually write one, even though it will probably be composed of rather spaced out entries. Getting to the point, have you ever noticed how similar a cappella and ultimate frisbee are?
Hell everyone. This is my first blog here on casa. Just letting everyone know I'm starting up a new a cappella group here in my hometown of Chicago.
As Fall begins and the leaves start changing colors, high school and college a cappella groups similarly turn over a new leaf, bringing in many new members. During this time of transition and new beginnings, how can a director build camaraderie among this funny new mix of people? How can you involve new people while still taking advantage of the wisdom of your returning members?
