Naturally 7 brings "Vocal Play" a capella style to Charlotte, Raleigh
Naturally 7 has announced North Carolina performances in Charlotte April 21 and Raleigh April 22 as part of their 2018 tour. Tickets for both performances go on sale Wednesday, March 7 at 10am at bnpresents.com and via the venue's sales channels.
Naturally 7 is more than an a capella group, they've defined their own genre, Vocal Play, to reflect that each of the members isn't just singing, but rather becoming an instrument with their voice. There are no actual drums, guitars, horns, flutes, or any other instrument that is heard when listening to them perform; it’s the band members playing each of their vocal instruments. The Boston Globe said "It was like a striking optical illusion, only aural." They've released several albums, toured with Michael Buble and found international success since first breaking through more than a decade ago.
Today Naturally 7 are Roger Thomas (musical director, arranger, 1st Baritone, Rap), Warren Thomas (percussion, guitar, clarinet, 3rd tenor) Rod Eldridge (1st tenor, scratching, trumpet), Ricky Cort (4th Tenor, guitar), Dwight Stewart (2nd baritone, vocals, trumpet), Garfield Buckley (2nd Tenor, Harmonica) and “Kelz” Mitchell (Bass).
