Acaville Partners with BHS to Bring You MORE Barbershop

Here at Acaville, we love all styles of a cappella. Throughout each day we play a mix of contemporary, jazz, comedy, classical, and barbershop to make sure our all-vocal music fans get a great mix of a cappella.

This year, we’ve made a commitment to expand our library – especially in barbershop – so, it’s with great pleasure and excitement that we announce that we are working with Barbershop Harmony Society to bring you some of the best barbershop music EVER.

With the help of the staff at BHS Headquarters, we’ll be playing the audio from past international contests and showcases, recent and not so recent, so that fans can hear the best of barbershop from all generations.

We’ll kick things off this week with a recording of the 1965 Medalist Showcase, airing on Friday Night Live starting at 6 pm PDT/9 pm EDT. The 1965 Contest took place in Boston and The Four Renegades earned the gold. Also performing at this showcase are The Four Rascals (2nd Place), The Impostors (3rd Place,) The Auto Towners (4th Place & 1966 Champions), The Four Statesmen (5th Place & 1967 Champions), plus a swan song set from the 1964 Champions, The Sidewinders.

Tune in for FREE right here on Acaville.org (or on the Acaville (Apple) and TuneIn (Android) apps). If you can’t tune in on Friday night, the show will re-air during our Saturday Rebroadcasts at 8 am & 8 pm PDT (11 am & 11 pm EDT).

For even more barbershop, don’t forget to listen to our weekly special “ShopTalk” hosted by Mark Holdeman Thursdays at 4 pm PDT/7 pm EDT. It re-airs Saturdays at midnight & noon PDT (3 am & 3 pm EDT).

One Minute With: RESOUND

This group got their big break when their video went viral a few years back. Their talent was featured on national news and their rise began. Now, RESOUND made the jump to full time and they talked to us about how they prepared and what the experience is like.

And if you want to hear them perform, lucky for you, they’ll be performing at the National A Cappella Convention this weekend, presented by the A Cappella Education Association. If you won’t be in Memphis, you can join in the fun LIVE – we’ll be streaming it all weekend right here on Acaville!

Here is one minute with RESOUND:

One Minute With: The House Jacks (Part 1)

The pioneers of the rock band without instruments are still paving the way. We caught up with them in Los Angeles where they returned to headline the 10th anniversary of the Los Angeles A Cappella Festival – a festival they helped bring to life when they headlined the very first one in 2009.

Here’s one minute with The House Jacks:

New DCappella Album PLUS a Chance to Open For The Tour

Things have been ramping up behind the scenes for well over a year in the halls of Disney Music (and the mind of Deke Sharon), as they prepared to launch the next great a cappella group.

The promotional tours are underway and US & Canada tour dates for 2019 have been announced, as well as teasers for their first album. The much anticipated first album from DCappella was released on all major music distributors today. Here’s a taste:

Here’s how to get there:

Get an Instagram account (just kidding, we know you already have one!)

  1. Record your group LIVE. No studio magic here – just you, your group, and your beautiful natural voices. Phone video is fine – no one is judging your cinematography skills (but maybe film in landscape and use a tripod 😉 )
  2. Upload your video to Instagram. Tag it with:

#DCappella
#TakeUsOnTour
#[name of the city you want to perform in]

And hey, tag us, too – we LOVE good a cappella! (@Acavilleradio)

3. Share. Share. Share.

Submit your entry by December 15th and check your DMs – someone will reach out to you there if you make it through!

And while you’re at it….don’t forget to spread the word about the tour.
