The Tone Rangers
The Tone Rangers delight audiences from coast to coast with a dynamic
blend of tight harmonies, inventive arrangements and keen wit. In a few
choreographed minutes, the Tone Rangers propel through 900 years of
Western music--from Gregorian chant to classic rock to TV theme songs--in
a fresh approach to contemporary a cappella music and comedy. Nominated
for seven Wammies by the Washington Area Music Association in the past
four years, the Tone Rangers were voted the Best A Cappella Group four
consecutive years (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010) and won Best A Cappella
Recording for "We Think You Love Us (But We've Been Wrong Before)." They
were also national finalists in the 2002 Harmony Sweepstakes (the
Superbowl of a cappella), and three-time winners of Mid-Atlantic "Audience
Favorite" and "Best Arrangement" awards.
The Chromatics are a unique high-energy vocal band that delights audiences
with a combination of outrageous originals, crazy covers, melodic insights
into modern life, and a smattering of science songs. The Internet,
television, and fast food - they're all subjects of Chromatics originals.
The Chromies have taken their astronomically-correct a cappella songs, a
project called AstroCappella, from Palm Springs, to Orlando, from Las
Vegas to New York, and their CD has flown in space! Really! The Chromatics
have presented their "down-to-earth" repertoire at the Kennedy Center's
Millennium Stage, at various First Nights, the Atlantic Region Harmony
Sweepstakes, festivals, and concert series.
Hope to see you there!
