Several years ago, I was indeed on my way home from a quartet rehearsal one
night and scanning through the radio stations (1 hr. drive), when I heard
this glorious music pouring out of the speakers (WMBI-90.1 FM Chicago).
Suffice it to say I was on a mission to find their recordings for several
days - hard to find in retail outlets, sorry to say, as barbershop
recordings!!! I finally found them at a Christian bookstore.
Needless to say, I played them for Jay who was then inspired to make a
4-part arr. of "In the First Light" which will be recorded on the New
Tradition's new upcoming holiday recording to be released this coming
Indeed, GLAD was one of the groups that made me very sorry to not be able
to hear the SING productions in person.
See you all in Nashville!

GLAD was good, and very talented, and I respect their message and their
faith, but I have one thing to summarize my opinion of them. They were the
only mild dissapointment I had at SING!. One reason only: TRACKS! That
just _bothered_ me.
Sorry I'm still not there! Greetings from California <my vacation continues>!

sophisticated arrangements, their incredible blend... but to see them
perform live with not only rhythm tracks but vocal tracks... I was not the
only one who wondered if at times they were lip synching to the tracks.
Others also thought the bass in particular was at least occasionally taking
vocal breaks in the middle of the song. As far as I could tell, there was
just one song on which they performed 100% live a cappella.
Beyond that, though, the weekend was a blast for Kate and me. I'll admit
to being a bit nervous as The House Jacks took stage... here's a group on
our record label, performing rock a cappella for barbershoppers... how
would they be received? I breathed a sigh of relief somewhere during the
tremendous applause that met their performance. It was in a way validation
for starting the first a cappella catalog nearly 10 years ago that catered
to all styles of singing - a validation that good singers will at least
respect, and in many cases enjoy, great a cappella singing no matter what
I look forward to helping make the next similar a cappella event happen!
