WEDNESDAY 28th Jan – ACCENT jazz vocal harmony group plus opening set from dynamic young pianist HEZRON SPRINGER – ACCENT is a unique collaboration of 6 talented musicians from 5 countries: JAMES ROSE (UK), EVAN SANDERS (USA), JEAN-BAPTISTE CRAIPEAU (France), SIMON AKESSON (Sweden) plus ANDREW KESLER & DANNY FONG, both from Canada. The band members discovered each other online, through their common musical interests and by posting multi-track, a cappella, jazz and pop arrangements on their individual YouTube channels. They began to sing as a ‘virtual’ group online only, with their songs gleaning thousands of hits until they met for the first time at the Umea Choral Festival in Sweden in June 2014. Influenced by Take 6 and the Real Group, their exciting, smooth, close-harmony arrangements raise a cappella to new heights. This concert is part of this year’s LONDON A CAPPELLA FESTIVAL. Doors open: 6pm, Music 8-11pm £10/£8 MU, student/advance http://www.wegottickets.com/event/301672
