Long ago and far away in Providence, Rhode Island, a few young men began something which, over the next decade, would build from a collegiate hobby into a national phenomenon. Often imitated, never duplicated, this certifiably unique pop musical group has taken the previously stodgy music genre of a cappella and brought it full-force into the 21st century. Their story is like no other, and they create a sound and impression like no one else!
The original quartet, a group of young Brown University alumni, was formed for the sheer love of performing; singing on New York City street corners with a hat out at their feet. One thing led to another, and as the '90s began, they caught the eye of a producer putting together a television special about the growing genre of "contemporary" a cappella music. After filmmaker Spike Lee and entertainer Debbie Allen signed on to host this program, it became Spike & Co.: Do It A Cappella, and aired for several years on PBS, producing a soundtrack and video as well. Finding them on television over the years has become a frequent and pleasant surprise for millions, whether it be on numerous national commercials and talk shows, or as regulars for five seasons on the award-winning PBS television program Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?
As the undisputed kings of contemporary a cappella music, Rockapella continues to offer proof to everyone of their boundless ability to inspire and attract devoted fans, new and old.
