Hey, there a cappella singers - ever wanted to sing in a band? Maybe you did so previously and want to get back to it? Or maybe you just have melisma overload, and are dying to hear the sound of a shredding guitar? Well, local DC area band The Slow Burn may be the answer! We are five guys - all experienced musicians, all Dads, all professionals. We play 50% covers and 50% originals. We bill ourselves as "Melodic rock...with an edge." Our covers include Tom Petty, Beatles, Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp and Pretenders. Originals are in a similar vein, with lots of cool harmonies!
We are looking for a female vocalist to sing leads and harmonies (about half and half). We play out about once every two months, but would like to do so more frequently. We have played at Iota, Bangkok Blues, The Grog & Tankard, Fat Tuesdays, Jammin' Java, and other area venues. We rehearse once a week in Fairfax, VA. If you are interested, please contact Ted at tdonat@...).

Is there a deadline for group submissions for the February 25th Mid-Atlantic
(Sorry, that's the subject line I've been using for everyone else...habit.) =P
Hello, terrifically awesome aca-peeps!
I wanted to be sure you knew about the Vox Pop show next Friday, October 28th. I've attached our [bad-ass] flyer, with all of the information, and tickets are at voxpopdc.com.
Public transit is strongly suggested, since there is minimal parking close by. Columbia Heights is the closest Metro - All Souls Unitarian is very close to the Target.
Let me know if you have questions. I'm hoping to see you there!

On November 15th, SONOS
- recent stars of NBC's "The Sing-Off" - will make a stop in the
Washington, DC area for a concert at Arlington Temple Community Center. Local
professional vocal group, Snowday
will open the show at 7:30 pm. Tickets are only $10 and will be available at
SONOS masterfully combines vocal artistry with electronic
effects, amazing audiences from coast to coast with their thoughtful
reinterpretations of classic and indie pop and stunning original music. Fans are amazed by the ways in which this
band continuously expands the boundaries of what all-vocal bands can do live.
Snowday will open the show their signature engaging set of powerful pop rock.
This show promises to be a jaw dropping, unforgettable
experience for local music fans.
More about SONOS:
Emerging in the fall of '09 from the Los Angeles vocal scene, Sonos turned the
a cappella genre on its head with bold vocal+electronic interpretations of
popular indie material. On their Verve debut "SonoSings" the group
reinvented Radiohead, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes & Imogen Heap, and dazzled with
a dark, trip-hop take on a Jackson 5 classic.
Special appearances over the past two years include live
radio sessions on NPR's Weekend Edition, KCRW, BBC Americana, Studio 360 and
Sirius/XM; performances at SXSW '11, Sundance '10, Celtic Connections, ASCAP
Awards and L.A. Ovation Awards; collaborations with Margaret Atwood and the Young
@ Heart Chorus at UCLA Live; plus performances at colleges, clubs, radio
stations and theaters all over the country and in the U.K.
In further collaborations, Sonos performed with Sara
Bareilles at the Orpheum in LA and sang on an Ozomatli remix as part of their
"Ozomatli vs. KCRW Soundclash" EP. "Gods &
Marionettes", their stunning collaboration with the L.A. Contemporary
Dance Company and playwright David Bridel, premiered this past year in Los
Angeles at the Ford Ampitheater and USC's Bovard Auditorium. The piece, which
combines the live vocal accompaniment of Sonos with a small group of dancers
and a single actor, is a powerful artistic exploration of the concept of fate
vs. free will.
The group won the 2010 CARA (Contemporary A Cappella
Recording Award) for Best Pop/Rock song of the year, numerous ACAs (A Cappella
Community Awards) including Best Group, Album and Vocalist, and the 2011 CARA
for Best Holiday Album for their 2010 release "December Songs", a
