Since 1989, when the original members -- Bill Beasley, Russell Horsch, and Mike Reed -- first appeared together at the Michigan Theater in Jackson, MI for a Christmas show, The GelCaps have drawn a following of fans at car shows, bars, parties and many other events throughout lower Michigan, performing a cappella doo-wop in the traditional streetcorner style. We have sung for actor Jeff Daniels at the Purple Rose Theater in Chelsea, MI, at premieres of his films in Ann Arbor and Jackson, and at private parties in his home. In the 1996 election year we wrote and recorded a song for Pat Paulsen's Presidential campaign. (See our honorable mention in the New Haven Advocate here . . .) We also made it onto Zack Butler's list of "Silly Band Names" for March 1, 1999. Our music seems to appeal to all ages -- it takes some people back to younger days and simpler times, while other folks just appreciate the pure sounds and vocal intricacies of our tight a cappella harmonies.
