Who is performing at ACDC?
The ACDC concert will feature three of Boston’s coolest a cappella groups:
Since 1994, The Works have performed for audiences ranging from a 3,000-person conference at Disney World to intimate private parties, schools, fundraisers, festivals, and corporate functions. Member of the American A Cappella Alliance’s Spring Sing, The Works deliver a fun combo of eclectic repertoire and witty repartee that’s always sure to entertain!
None of the Above
Celebrating 10+ years of music-making, None of the Above (NOTA) is a mixed a cappella octet that performs a broad mix of pop tunes, jazz standards, folk, spirituals, and non-traditional music. A finalist on the inaugural season of WGBH’s Sing that Thing! and the Boston Harmony Sweepstakes, NOTA has performed all across New England!
Founded in 2009, Tonehenge is made up of eight “mostly clean-shaven” businessmen from the greater Boston area. Tonehenge’s uniquely cool rock-solid performances have ranged from a soaring national anthem at a Pawtucket Red Sox game, to opening for audience faves Ball in the House and the Hyannis Sound.
