I came across this article today and wanted to share it with you, the A Cappella-loving community.  Rather than have you slog through the entire article (which I do recommend if you want to make sure I'm not misrepresenting the context), here is the paragraph I found most interesting (emphasis mine):

"Guggenheim chuckles at the suggestion. "There was the moment when someone asked me to be the lead singer in a band, but the band never happened. I never had the chance. I danced around many nights in my underwear air-guitaring to everybody. In the pathetic days of Billy Joel." Worse, he sang in a college a cappella group called—get ready for it—the Brown Derbies. After that, Guggenheim insists, "I got cooler," but never with a guitar in his hands."



Its a little frustrating the

Its a little frustrating the public perception that people have of what we do...when at the same time, 99.9% of people who actually see and hear a contemporary a cappella sound  are just blown away by it and impressed.  We always tell people who are thinking of coming to our shows that we 100% gaurantee they will have a good time, and we've neve been wrong yet. 

Tis an uphill battle...

Eh, if anything, it looks like they're just saying how horrible the pun is. And you gotta admit, there are a lot of bad puns in a cappella...
