Up In The Air

Up in the Air is a dynamic vocal group that performs an eclectic repertoire of a cappella jazz, funk, r&b, pop, and world music. The group has appeared before hundreds of audiences throughout the U.S. and Europe, singing a diverse mix of music inspired by artists such as Take 6, Kurt Elling, Jason Mraz, Les Nubians, Tower of Power, Zap Mama, and many others. Produced and directed by Brad Rees, the group has recorded four CDs. 

"Up in the Air is on cutting edge of the collegiate a cappella movement, uniquely combining the excitement of a student driven group with the experience of a top-notch music educator." (Deke Sharon, CASA.org, The House Jacks, NBC's The Sing Off)

"Up in the Air puts on a fantastic show - tight harmonies, wonderful soloists, complex arrangements - they handle pop, r&b, and vocal jazz with equally accomplished aplomb. Up in the Air has a *lot* of fun up there, and the audience does too." (Kid Beyond, singer / beatboxer / live-looper)

"This group is great! I'm thoroughly impressed with Up in the Air's dedication and performance... There's not a weak link in this chain!" (Eliot Sloan of Blessid Union of Souls)

"Great soloists, a superb blend, impressive arrangements and perfect execution. Surely one of the best collegiate groups around!" (Sean Altman of Rockapella)

"I absolutely loved this group... It's 'Urban Jazz'! Elements of everything fused together to make... MUSIC! The level of musicality is very high, and the concept and sound are better than anything I've heard in a long time." (Sunny Wilkinson, jazz recording artist)
