Emocapella is a hard working all-male college a cappella group that sings songs by artists such as Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World, and The Weakerthans. We sing mostly punk rock songs, but we also do a few other numbers, such as "Just a Friend" by Biz Markie. And yeah, we spell it with one "p"... Emocapella is the brainchild of George Washington University senior Eric Denman, who wanted to form an a cappella group that strayed from performing typical "a cappella numbers" and sing some good songs by some of our favorite bands. Emocapella has been together since Fall of 2001 and since then has had an amazing time. After getting picked up by a few punk webzines, we soon found ourselves getting mentioned in national publications such as Spin Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and Britian's Kerrang Music Magazine. We also found ourselves singing on stage with one of our favorite groups, Taking Back Sunday, when they played in Washington DC, which was one of our most amazing experiences together.
