"The Sing-Off" season two begins Monday, December 6 on NBC. Ten amazing groups will compete for a Sony recording contract and cash prizes. We'll be featuring profiles of each group leading up to the debut, and during the show's run, we'll have a review of each episode. Have an opinion on any of the groups, or the show?

The Men of Note started as an all-male a cappella group at Cherry Hill High School West of Cherry Hill of Cherry Hill, New Jersey.  They won the International Championship of High School A Cappella three years in a row (2006-8), becoming the first group to ever accomplish this feat.  Now, eight alumni have joined to form an all-star version of Men of Note as they set their sights on "The Sing-Off" stage.  The octet draws from the roots of the contemporary a cappella movement; they pull from the rich harmonies of barbershop while infusing fun and camaraderie into songs from artists such as Elvis and Beyonce.  Make sure to tune in to "The Sing-Off" on December 6th to see Men of Note do what they do best, and check out “The Sing-Off: Harmonies for the Holidays” to hear Men of Note’s take on “The First Noel.”
