About: "Hello big band, meet your new friend, a cappella." Two distinct shows share the stage for one night - highlighting Emmy award-winning vocals and the red hot and rebellious beat of the big band era.
Tonic Sol-fa has established itself not only as the most in-demand vocal group in the Midwest, but also one of the most successful independent acts in America. In addition to substantial CD sales of its own independent releases (2,000,000 copies sold), the group has toured extensively throughout the US and abroad, building their financial base with a steady list of festivals and private shows that eventually led to numerous sold-out tours of theaters and small arenas. The group boasts ‘Independent Grammy’ wins for Best Original Holiday Song and Best Original Pop Song out of 650,000 entries.
The Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience (BBE) is the only group taking big band music, fusing it with modern day mixes of all genres, and making the act of giving “cool.” Created for intelligent music lovers worldwide who wish to be a part of an electric musical experience accomplishing the unexpected! Wanna levitate off your chair with the pulse of pop? Done. Just don’t ask that they hold back the edge because THAT is what makes the Big Band Experience who they are. Big band was born out of rebellion, and we owe it to Sinatra to keep that evolution alive. Suits. Edge. Energy. Contemporary songs with big band punch.
