The "bad boys of a cappella" are BACK!!!


The newest addition to the EDLOS ever growing list of concert offerings boasts an assortment of some of the most popular Broadway songs of all-time, all sung a cappella. Representative shows include The Music Man, The Man of La Mancha, Les Miserable, West Side Story, My Fair Lady, The Fantasticks, Hair, Guys and Dolls, and many, many more. A Cappella Broadway premiered in April of 2007. The broad appeal of the material in this show definitely make it an instant audience favorite.

They claim to be from Planet A, which circles the star Cappella. Who knows? If The Edlo's sense of humor is any indication, it's probably true. One thing is for sure: when they take the stage, this quartet of unaccompanied singers never fail to transport entire audiences with their unique combination of outrageous gags and impeccable musicality, post-modern dynamics, and inventive vocal arrangements of everything from Gregorian chants to the songs of the Beach Boys as well as bizarre originals like those found on their new '60s album, Retropella.

Behind the jokes, costumery, wigs and other assorted mayhem, Eric Morris, Avi Jacobson, Larry Venza, and Craig Knudsen all have stellar reputations as classical performers -- they're veterans of the San Francisco Opera Company and Pocket Opera, among many others -- but that doesn't prevent them from having a good time.
