Re: [Chicago-acappella] New member with questions on music......
My name is Greg Vaden and I too am from Michigan. I have been singing a
cappella music professionally since 1983 and am currently heading up
elmoTHUMM, a male quintet. I was a full time musician based out of Chicago
for 4 years and you might say I know a little about the biz. elmoTHUMM sings
mostly contemporary and classic rock tunes with a few of what "they" want to
hear like "Under the Boardwalk" and "The Lion Sleeps Tonite". It can be a
bitter pill but learn these songs quickly and first. As for arrangements, I
am always writing and have many songs I would be willing to share. Let me
know "your" style and I'm sure we can work something out. Our group is
working out the kinks on our first album and it should be available soon.
You can also look for us at the Harmony Sweepstakes for our 4th appearance
and at many, many fairs and festivals around the state.

p.s. I'm interested in producing as well should you need a hand.
- As I said to Jim privately, the non-profit organization CASA is specifically
organized to help and to encourage formation of new groups. Deke Sharon, the
pres., is a great guy, too. Check out their web page, http://www.casa.org
Twelve arrangements are free when you join the organization for $30/year.
